“It has been a long time since I went to a concert and came away so moved, challenged, and inspired… So I came away feeling inspired to lift my eyes from the humdrum and to set my sights on something greater, something beyond what is within reasonable reach.” – Audience member following a recent rendering of David’s performance at Oxford University in the UK.
