What the Awards Judges review panel said:
“The creative use of a ‘concert setting’, but without an audience – essentially the viewer is the private audience – is innovative and enjoyable. Nice use of insightful interviews with the artist.
“The video quality is superb and the audio is well done. The editing matches the tone of the musical presentations. This is a very well produced program.”
