To Whom It May Concern:

This past February, the MSU School of Music hosted workshops and a performance by the group Oon with Ariane Cap and Paul Hanson.  They are both astonishingly accomplished musicians and were wonderful to work with.  Their performances inspired my students and were both informative and engaging.  

They are comfortable with performing for a large group as well as interacting individually with the  students.  For me, Ariane's and Paul's compositions were an integral part of the whole experience, since they could show the students how big a part musical creativity plays in their lives.

We could not have asked for better people to work with, as they showed by their continued good humor in the face of the horrendously cold weather at that time here in Montana!

I can wholeheartedly recommend Paul and Ariane to anyone interested in them doing workshops and performances.
