Masterful musicians presenting a creative and broader range of pieces to perform. Having a string quartet perform jazz of Dizzy Gillespie I imagine is a once in a life time opportunity!

A beautiful and uplifting concert! The group has impeccable intonation and musicality, and their ability to sing as one voice is truly remarkable.

This was the first time I attended such an event at IC, I am sure it will not be the last one. Both the Orchestra and the audience were wonderful and I enjoyed my time.
