SELECTED PRESS COVERAGE FROM PAST PROJECTS

* Vespers of 1610 at the Marigny Opera House
December 12-14, 2013

Chris Waddington, New Orleans Times-Picayune | nola.com

" 'To me, it's a sign of growing energy on the local concert scene, that we can stage an all-New Orleans Vespers production.' "

Sharon Litwin, NolaVie.com | WWNO

"Through a series of only-in-New Orleans coincidences [Vespers Vocal Director Mattea Musso] has made musical connections. Now she and her new colleagues are presenting a very different production of the Vespers of 1610, framed as a festival of light celebrating the Winter Solstice."

John D'Addario, New Orleans Advocate

"The production will feature 13 musicians [of the] New Resonance Orchestra . . . [which has been] presenting its unique brand of 'interdisciplinary performance events' (including a wondrous performance of Stravinsky's 'Soldier's Tale' . . .) in New Orleans since 2008 and counts LPO and NOCCA faculty among its members."

Joe Shriner, noladefender.com

"If last night's concert proved anything, it was that a combination of amibition and earnestness can go a very long way. Marigny Opera House's presentation of Claudio Monteverdi's Vespers offered a terrific tapestry of sounds, light, and color. The historic building . . . was a perfect backdrop to the New Resonance Orchestra, choir, and dancers, who put on the engaging, 90-minute work."

* NatureMusic at the Pavilion of the Two Sisters
January 12 and 13, 2011

Chris Waddington, New Orleans Times-Picayune | nola.com

"New Resonance is all about finding fresh approaches to presentation -- something that has generally been neglected by  classical musicians." “Our goal is to reach new listeners. We're telling them 'this music is about you, it touches on your concerns, and it's made by people like you.' We're not messing with the music of great composers, but we are saying that the listener is the hero."

* Rebuilding Appalachian Spring at the NOLA Candle Factory 
November 2008

Frank Daugherty, Mobile Press-Register

"From the word "go" everything about this orchestra said new and fresh: the young players and audience in casual attire, the edgy Bywater performance space in the NOLA Candle Factory and the surprising combination of musicians, actors and visual art."

"The orchestra as a whole played with highly disciplined brio in a sharp mosaic of patterns."

"By the end of the piece, a solemn, even reverential hush had fallen on the standing-room-only, sneaker-shod crowd before they burst into applause. Clearly, everyone realized that for all the friendliness and accessibility, art on a very high level had just taken place."
