“Chamber music and brass fans would do themselves a great service by keeping an eye out for this standout group of musicians”- San Francisco Classical Voice
“These musicians not only showed a capacity to engage their audience musically, they also weren’t afraid to engage it on a personal level in discussing the program. Their banter between works revealed a quirky, almost sarcastic demeanor.”- San Francisco Classical Voice
