Comments from our audience:
♫ “The SSC stands proudly among the best clarinet choirs in the world, groups such as Toronto’s Wychwood Clarinet Choir, Los Angeles Clarinet Choir, Rochester’s New Horizon’s Clarinet Choir and England’s South Wales Clarinet Choir…. As such, “Silverwood” sounds more like a friendly conversation than a cerebral exercise in music theory. Its rippling rhythms give way to declaratory hellos, celebratory huzzahs and a few good-natured chuckles all punctuated by starting stop times.” Russ Tarby , Eagle Newspapers, April 25, 2013 (click for the complete article).
♫ I loved listening to some of your pieces you have on video and am inspired to give you a couple of pieces. Sean O'Boyle
♫ There was certainly a lot of buzz about the performance --all of it very positive. It was a great program -- and so many people had never seen, let alone heard clarinets played together as a choir.
♫ It is nice to hear a wonderful clarinet choir. Keep up the good work. Michael Fox. Clarinet Connexions
♫ Great interpretation! Great Performers and the great director.
♫ Our top picks for things do to in Central New York this weekend include three different types of music and hot food. In music, check out a free concert Thursday by Silverwood Clarinet Choir at Temple Concord in Syracuse. By Mark Bialczak/The Post-Standard
