I've heard a lot of renditions of our National Anthem over the years. This was the finest rendition (by The City Lights Orchestra) I've ever heard.

President George Bush
Addressing the opening session of the National Restaurant Association

…Rich Daniels has always been a strong CFL supporter, and is a talented professional. He certainly shows why live music is always best

Jorge Ramirez, President
Chicago Federation of Labor AFL-CIO

Rich—thanks for another great job with the orchestra at the Awards of Excellence Dinner this year…thank you for all you have done for Ronald McDonald House Charities and playing a role in its success…looking forward to a great association with The City Lights Orchestra for many years to come!

Ken Barun, President and CEO
Ronald McDonald House Charities

Practically an institution here at the Chicago Historical Society, we thought it only appropriate that you and members of The City Lights Orchestra once again be the first thing our 1,100 plus guests experienced on their way into our 12th annual Open House. Your uplifting music set the mood for a good time to be had by all!

Ally Allman
Director of Corporate Events
The Chicago Historical Society

Rich—as usual, you and your orchestra were awesome. Thanks for all of your assistance with the Governor's Millenium New Year's Eve Ball at Navy Pier as well as the Governor's Inaugural Ball in Springfield with Ray Charles.

Ron Pateras, Talent Buyer
Jam Productions

There's no doubt in my mind The City Lights Orchestra added to the magic of the day.

Marge Tresley
Infant Welfare Society of Chicago

On behalf of the Mayor and Mrs. Daley, I want to thank you for your generous support of the reception held in honor of Chicago's Consular Corps at The Arts Club. Your music added to the elegance of the evening
