“…combined with those gorgeous show tunes played by Steven Reineke and the Cincinnati Pops, just about everything was coming up roses.”- Cincinnati Enquirer (Cincinnati, OH)
“Bewitching, beguiling, bedazzling – it was all of that and more as two ‘witches’ from Broadway wove a magic spell no one wanted to break in the opening concert of the Grand Rapids Symphony’s final Fox Motors Pops Series weekend Friday night.” – Grand Rapids Herald-Review (Grand Rapids, MI)
“The vocalists took turns celebrating divas of all different flavors, from Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady to power balladeer Celine Dion via her turn, “My Heart Will Go On.” In a nice variety of instrumental selections, the orchestra played a medley of the “Symphonic Sounds of Diana Ross” as well as a sweet, simple rendition of “Over the Rainbow,” featuring concertmaster Sara Schaft.” – Beacon Journal (Akron, OH)
