Some comments from audience members for the Ella Shields  program featured in the               

Baltimore Living History Theatre Series at the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion.

Congratulations!  You were fantastic!  Thanks for sharing your excellent talent.

That was quite a tribute to Ella Shields.  It was so engrossing that time seemed to stand still.

It didn’t feel like that much time had gone by once you started, and next thing the show was over.

My wife and I attended today’s performance and you were delightful. 

We thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and singing.

Most delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Baltimore. 

Miss Shields was wonderful.
