David Randolph

I am so privileged to have had the opportunity to perform as tenor soloist under David Randolph on four occasions. The professionalism he exhibited was exemplary. My life is richer because of him, and I am thankful for our friendship.

David Randolph

I was so very fortunate to make music on many occasions with this truly remarkable conductor and to stay in contact with him over the years as a treasured friend. I will miss his letters and hearing of all his musical condolences to all those who loved him as I did.
