Dear Bradford,

This letter is to congratulate you on your stunning performance at the Naperville Public Library two weeks ago!  As witnessed by the standing ovation given to you by the audience, I would have to say that your concert was an outstanding success.  You are a brilliant performer, and quite easily wrapped the audience around your little finger within minutes.

The Naperville Public Library prides itself on offering exception cultural and entertainment programs to its patrons.  I have to say that this was one of the finest.  Your fabulous voice, your presence and personality all combine to make you a very special talent.  Your interaction with the audience, your stories about Cole Porter, and your lovely and often funny introductions to the songs added a wonderful layer to the music.  And speaking of music, your accompanist, Bill Underwood, was nothing short of spectacular!  Every patron stopped me as they left the program requesting that we have you back.  One woman went so far as to request a monthly appearance by Bradford Newquist!

I eagerly look forward to your next appearance at our Library, and wish you continued success in your career!

Best Regards,

May Bannon
