"Last night’s Drive-In concert was a great success. The performers (d. j. And singers) were exceptional. I couldn’t stop dancing. Most of all I want to acknowledge the hard work it takes behind the scenes planning for such huge events. It’s obvious that ever detail has been planned and implemented from the moment audience members arrive through the end of the concerts. I look forward to attending many outdoor and indoor activities. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and commitment for providing some normalcy in my life and many others.

"I wanted to thank you for the fantastic entertainment you provide for the Queens community. We have been attending many shows over the years at Queensborough and they never disappoint. There have been so many wonderful times spent in your theater that I just wanted to say thank you for me, my husband and for my many friends who often join me to see and hear these fantastic events. Susan is always there to make sure everything goes off as planned under her tender loving care. She is friendly and welcoming and always very pleasant even with all the stress of putting on a perfect event. Some of our most memorable shows at QCC were Joan Rivers, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Artrageous, Tony Daza, Chita Rivera and Robert Klein just to name a few. What a special place!"

"Thank you very much for arranging a performance of the ballet “Giselle” at QPAC. The ticket price of $42 is one of the best values available anywhere in New York City! As a subscriber to the American Ballet Theater at the Metropolitan Opera, I can tell you that a similar seat (prime Orchestra) costs $120 on a Saturday night. Keep up the great work and service to the local community!!!"
