Stephanie was fantastic. This was my first chamber music event, so I was not sure what to expect. I was extremely impressed and will attend these types of events in the future. Additionally, the members of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center added to the experience, and we enjoyed a lovely evening of music.

We'd love to give 5 stars. Wonderful musicians, a carefully chosen program, and one of the best opera singers of our time, in a fairly intimate space. In addition, Ms. Blythe and Mr. Smith talked about the premiered work before the concert began.
