November 10: A French Feast for Winds
”…This was ensemble playing at its best…these artists managed the challenge with aplomb in a beautiful performance…the Abell flute that Kate Steinbeck plays, made of grenadilla wood, has a superior tone [to gold] for chamber music. This modern wood flute blends with other woodwinds in a way that cannot be equaled. It is part of the allure of hearing a concert from Pan Harmonia.”
–Ted McIrvine, Classical Voice of NC

November 4: Haen Gallery Concert
“The Monday concert was sublime. I particularly like the Mozart, thought it was some of the best chamber music playing I’ve heard in a long time. (Trying to be objective here!) I think it also worked the best acoustically in the space. Its transparency allowed all the lines to be heard in a somewhat thick acoustic. Great fun! Thanks for all you do!”
–Dick Kowal, Music Director, WCQS Asheville
After hearing the live recording of our May Appalachian Spring Concert
“I spent my final year in New York working at Alice Tully Hall. Your group’s May 18 performance was easily the equal of anything I witnessed there. It always staggers me to be reminded of the extraordinary wealth of magical talent to be found in our little mountain city.”
–Richard Layman, Jazz Shack host, WCQS Asheville
Jamie Laval, one of the premier Celtic violinists on the international music scene today, played a wonderful Pan Harmonia concert last Sunday at the Altamont Theater in Asheville. Jamie creates rapt audiences with his intensely passionate performances of traditional music of Scotland, Ireland, Brittany and Quebec, but this time he achieved it with Bach and Paganini!
He shares his enthusiasm, “I was amazed and delighted to find that the July 14 classical concert drew such a large crowd. Attendees took a leap of faith on me, since I’m not known to be a classical player at all! It was a joy to play with brilliant performers Barbara Weiss and Amy Brucksch. Paganini’s intoxicatingly operatic melodies from this charming concert still waft through my head as I transition now into the next big matter: composing scores for the upcoming concert as soloist with the Hendersonville Symphony.”
