"THE GRACE OF THE UNTAMED"
How shall we as a culture evolve? It all starts with an idea, who has better ideas...and ideas of greatness than artists? Artists of living, Like Lawrence Anthony whose relationship with elephants defied what we thought of four legged creatures, he showed us the wondrous interconnectedness of all beings. Vaclav Havel, the playwright President of the Czech Republic whose words in the "Power of the Powerless" not only inspired, but taught the oppressed how to live in the truth and confront totalitarianism in a humane and brilliant way. In "The Grace of The Untamed" we offer stories of exemplary humanity, stories of faith, hope, trust and truth. We hope to help open the door to possibilities, to hope, to show the intimate world of creation...with God or whatever you deem to call, the instinctual being that propels us into some kind of glory in our life. TO ATTAIN GRACE!!

Dear Terri, what can one say? You were delightful and the performance was so enjoyable! Your choice of song, your vocal inflections, and the words between the songs revealed your character and the joy of life! We were enriched by it and our holiday season began! Thank you. " - Betsy, Fred, and Nancy
"Terri, You were amazing; better than Barbara. We left inspired!" - Amy Champ

"So enjoyed your performance on Thursday, I will certainly drop in for Acker Night." - Karen Churchill
"Terri: You and your associates made our evening wonderful! Can't begin to express my appreciation..........grand performance!!!!" - Muriel Haverland
"Dear Terri, You were BRILLIANT....thank you for a most enjoyable evening." - Yvette Winwood
"... I take this opportunity to tell you that we thoroughly enjoyed your performance last Thursday. I'm sure you know that your accompanying musicians are both keepers. I sensed that you were able to focus on your vocals almost 100.... I wish I had taken a few notes. As it is, I can't tell you which songs were merely enjoyable and which ones gave me goose bumps. "Autumn Leaves" was definitely in the latter category. I almost forgot to mention that your narrative added to the performance..., it transformed a group of songs into an almost theatrical whole. In a supper club it would help keep the audience engaged, rather than giving them permission to regard your efforts as mere background music. Please accept my congratulations on assembling such a polished, professional act. Yours truly, Dave Morefield
Amazing Performance of "Voices of the Velvet Revolution"
Terri, Your stunning performance for the Artist's Path inauguration was outstanding! You know your subject intimately by your personal travel to Czechoslovakia, studying history, passionately portraying a peaceful revolution of which the majority of we Americans have never heard, highlighting that pacificists make a difference, that arts and humanities are very powerful persuaders of needed change, and that a playwright can lead a new nation. The leaders of The Artists Path chose the best performers in the West to launch a peaceful revolution that will circle the globe many times. Your beautiful, trained voice moved all of us in the audience, your music writing was very powerful, and you showed a very intellectual, caring, and passionate aspect of the amazing woman that you are. We in the audience were treated to an extremely professional performance and we are so fortunate to have that experience in Prescott. - Artist, Katy Standhardt
