– Washington Post on the New York Festival of Song
“Entertainment though elucidation...always a pleasure, and underneath the charms of the music and the singing is a foundation of fascinating, open-ended ideas. The music explores serious subjects, and the experience is serious fun.”
– New York Classical Review on the New York Festival of Song
