Just to let you know Mary’s choice of music was good and a lovely mixture for everyone.

Good afternoon Healthy Generations! Thank you for the opportunity to see and listen to Mary Tyler. She is a completely new musician to me. I was very impressed by the natural, unaffected way of her presentation and by her choice of musicians and their music. Ending the concert with Stravinsky’s “Fire Bird” was wonderful. Best regards and thank you again. Josefina Arcos
