The Final chord!

‘I must admit I was totally stunned. This little whirlwind of a person is incredibly charming and fun to talk to, to work with, and then, after weeks, when it was all done we sat and enjoyed the performance and I was so moved.  It simply seemed impossible. How can someone this young create such enchanting, perfect melodies, master such a complex work seemingly effortless? The look on her face, this utmost concentration I tried to capture in the photos alternated with pure glee and pride – watching her was such a treat.’  – Teresa Zimmerman of her experience alongside Anita Dorner of working with Alma and watching Alma perform at her world premiere in December 2016.

“The dress has just the right effect: it looks extremely elegant and effortlessly chic, and yet it doesn’t look fussy or too formal. It is comfortable for a child to wear and to play in, and it accentuates a child’s natural beauty. It’s the perfect winter dress for a very special occasion indeed!“ Alma’s mother Janie Steen writes in her thank you note.
