“Dear Clark, Thanks once again for a totally pleasurable two days. You and your team were the best of hosts and best of all, the Aeolian Theatre, the audience you helped bring in and the whole ambience was just perfect including the very nice Yamaha grand. I’m sure any of my musician friends would love this venue and the wonderful way you have of hosting the artist (me in this case). I wish you all continued success in your passion to bring good music to London, Ontario and hope to play here again soon.”
“Consumed with creativity…..Clark is, in his way, a latter-day Michelangelo, sculpting his vision, shaping, refining, as new opportunities emerge, ever widening the scope of his enterprise. Clark possesses a Protean mind, capable of moving in many areas of activity. His imagination could not live happily in a fear-based, static society. What Clark creates day by day is an expression of his own curiosity, a search for understanding and action.”
(The London Yodeller 2016)
