"After Concert Testimonial"

January 10, 2012

Dear Dr. Enloe,

I want to thank you for visiting LaGrange College and performing at Callaway Auditorium last October. Your performance was exciting and refreshingly musical, as always! Your tone is beautiful, and your attention to musical detail is inspiring. Also, I want to express my appreciation for the masterclass you taught for my guitar students. Your engaging style of teaching both enlightened and motivated my students to strive for greater heights in their playing. In the weeks following your visit, my students played their recitals, and faculty members commented to me that the entire guitar department seemed to have improved greatly as a direct result of your concert and masterclass!

We would love to have you visit again in the near future, and wish you luck in your burgeoning performance career!

- Dr. Philip Snyder, LaGrange College

”Luther Enloe has a passion and respect for classical music which is nothing short of contagious. Luther captivates his audience through the beauty and intensity of his performance, while he engages even those audience members who are less than fans of classical guitar. I can endorse Luther Enloe without reservation.”

“Luther has turned into one of the most insightful teacher/performers that I have seen with a kindness and character that is not only rare but usually absent from most young teachers. His performances are wonderful. His sound is one of the best I have ever heard, and his knowledge and musicianship I pay attention to. …I am giving Luther my highest recommendation...”

It was our immense pleasure to have you on our campus. Your recital was an excellent example of the kind of musicianship and polished performance we want our students to achieve. The musical selections were challenging as well as entertaining, and I could tell from the student response that they appreciated your choices. Your talent, technical skill, and artistry are truly commendable.

I join with Dr. Phil Snyder in saying thank you, also, for presenting a Master Class for the guitar students. I have heard good reports from the students about your helpful instruction. This kind of one-on-one instruction from a guest artist is so valuable to the learning process, and I appreciate your willingness to take the time to interact and share your insights with them. I know they benefited from this event.

We thoroughly enjoyed hosting you in concert. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.

I'm writing to thank you once again for your fine performance at Dalton State College this past Monday, October 3. Speaking personally, I enjoyed the concert very much, and I've received lots of positive feedback from students and faculty, as well as the Dean of Liberal Arts. I was thrilled to see such a good audience turnout, and especially gratified to see a nice mixture of students, faculty, and members of the community at large. Part of the "mission" of these concerts is to better integrate the college with the community, so anytime we see a large contingent who are not directly connected to the college as students or faculty, I get excited.

As you know, I'm working very hard to build as much variety as possible into our musical offerings, while keeping events within the boundaries of "serious" music. A full concert of music for classical guitar is unusual in this area, and was a really wonderful addition to our concert series. There are lots of guitar players around here, but not too many classical guitarists! Please accept my most sincere thanks for your contribution to our campus environment and the cultural life of greater Dalton. We would love to have you back anytime you're ready to come!
