"The day Prince died I also had tickets to see my very first classical music performance...I was accompanied by a good friend to Merkin Hall where I sat rapt by the Harlem Chamber Players performance of Serenade after Plato's "Symposium" by Leonard Bernstein followed by a premiere of Jeffrey Scott's A Hug for Harlem. Let me tell you, this music filled spaces inside me I didn't know were empty." -- April 25, 2016
Novella Ford
Harlem Resident

"I thought the concert was terrific. The musicianship was as good as it gets and in New York that is very good indeed. Ashley Horne’s violin solos combined with the excellence of the orchestra elevated the performance of Serenade after Plato’s "Symposium" to a level that Bernstein himself would have appreciated. A Hug for Harlem certainly was the centerpiece of the evening - the arc of the narrative and the arc of the music reinforced each other in a theme that went from dark to hopeful while leaving promise finally realized to the future. Jeffrey Scott is a talent that should continue to provide Harlem, New York and, for that matter, the entire world of music with great things. (Terrance McKnight’s narrative, of course, was an integral part of the piece and the performance). I also thought the performance of the Stravinsky piece was first rate and the evening’s conclusion was one of the best, if not the best, Appalachian Spring I have heard." -- April 22, 2016

"It was a pleasure meeting you on Sunday and I really enjoyed the concert. It actually blew my mind away and was so relaxing yet inspirational. Thank you for sharing your gift and working so hard for bringing The Harlem Chamber Players back year after year." -- September 2010
Peter Cooper
Harlem News Group

"The concert was wonderful, inspiring and very special. The space at St. Mary's provides such an intimate setting, that the music filled the air and every available space of the church. As we sat there, my colleague and I both agreed that this is the type of exposure we would like to provide to the students of Boys and Girls Harbor after school, as well as our Conservatory students." -- May, 2011
