What's being said about Twickenham Fest?

"Robust, adventurous..." says Michael Huebner (The Birmingham News, AL.com) of the all-Schubert concert August, 30, 2013.

Read HERE the review of the 2013 Annual New Commission from composer Christopher Weiss. Michael Huebner writes:

"The composer's sparse-textured scoring released a flood of profound emotions, heightened by Matthew McDonald's plaintive bassoon solos and soprano Susanna Phillips' sensitive rendering of the text."
