WHAT THE CRITICS SAY:
“The Singers is easily one of the best choral ensembles in America, if not the entire world. Their precision, passion, and musicality are awe-inspiring.” – Jim Svejda, KUSC-FM, Los Angeles
“[Conductor Matthew] Culloton has cultivated a cooly sweet, Scandinavian-style sound and endearing warmth of expression.” – Lindsay Koob, American Record Guide (July/August 2011)
“The Singers is a remarkable ensemble that combines precision and craft with the highest vocal standards and downright love for the choral art!” – Steve Staruch, Minnesota Public Radio
The Singers’ “What Sweeter Music” concert takes audiences to all sorts of unexpected places, yet leaves listeners richer for undertaking the adventure with them.
– Rob Hubbard, Special to the Pioneer Press
…Conductor Matthew Culloton and The Singers suffused each work with not only the spirit of salve and solace written into each by its composer, but also a sense of striving to touch the infinite. Maybe the feeling of being immersed in emotion was partially attributable to the resonant interior of St. Bart’s. But more likely, it was the musicians’ obvious investment in the interpretation, particularly The Singers, who treated every chord with care, each harmony with balance and beauty. It was a transporting performance. – Rob Hubbard, Pioneer Press, 10/22/2011
