Testimonials


"When you hear Merle Kollom play concerts on a carillon, you hear a real musician playing. She is playing with expression and control of the sound quality and all nuances, and with the heart. She makes the bells sing. She is a marvelous carillonneur, and a splendid ambassador for the instrument.""

Dear Merle! Words are unable to express the gratitude for everything you did for The Four Freshmen while they were with you. All details were taken care of from top to bottom.

We look forward to the opportunity of working with you again!"

From the first day in Estonia until our last concert we where amazed by Merle's professionalism, accuracy, tolerance and sense of humor. After all we called Merle Kollom “ManSound's favorite producer of all times”. And now we are not just a "group" and "producer" - we are close friends, and this friendship means a lot for us."
