Review of Pedals, Page-Turns, and Postludes

Michael Caruso published his review of our season opener in the Chestnut Hill Local yesterday, October 2, 2017. Click here for the review. Some tidbits from the review to whet your appetite to read the whole thing:

“The center of gravity for Lyric Fest’s concert was Chestnut Hill pianist Laura Ward … co-director Ward oversaw a series of performances of art songs composed across the generations and in many different styles … She also adeptly explained the many tricks of the trade … All four vocalists projected the words of their songs with personal conviction and sang with consummate vocalism. Ward proffered a level of pianistic collaboration that left piano playing behind in favor of musical artistry of the highest order.”
