REVIEWS

  • Cleveland.com – The orchestra responded as favorably as the audience. Individual players beamed at the arrival of each familiar tune, while collectively, with Williams on the podium, the group played with uncommon joy and vibrancy. It’s worth noting that both conductor and orchestra donated their services, on behalf of the group’s pension fund. For all that Sunday was about John Williams, it was also a chance simply to marvel at what this orchestra can do. – Full review
