Your performances of the Symphony No.7 movement [IV] are very touching and beautiful. You have done fine work under very restricted circumstances. It is quite clear that your players are deeply involved in the music. So, what would it take for you to do the entire Symphony?
"I recently heard it said that belief is passive, but that faith is belief-in-action. As founder and Artistic Director of Sacred Winds, Scott Bersaglia is truly a man of faith—he has put his beliefs into action in a most beautiful way: through music. What impressed me most about my experience as a soloist with Sacred Winds was this: despite the fact that the individual members are scattered across the United States and only rehearse as a group for a day or two before a performance, the cohesiveness of the ensemble is absolutely astonishing—as if they play together every day. Their spiritual unity and commitment to their collective mission—as well as their superb musicianship—allow them to play as one, under the inspired leadership of their conductor."

“I am impressed that the group is not satisfied with merely playing the standard repertoire. You seem to realize that creativity should be very much a part of our identity and duty as Christians, as we reflect the image of the Creator Himself.”
