The audience, of course, has always been our most important critic.
Audience comments from past performances:
“This concert consisted of many “firsts” for me. This was the first concert I ever attended. It’s also the first time I’ve ever heard all the music. Being hearing impaired, seeing the incredible synchronization of these talented musicians brought the music to life, and created a picture I could see as well as hear. Thank you for an incredible performance!” Shannon Boyle and Dewayne Miller, Danvers, MA
“The explanations about the composers and compositions gave meaning and depth to the performance. It was a wonderful concert. The music, the atmosphere, the musicians. The performers were great. One violinist was especially engaging with my young son who sat in the front row. It made it a special moment for him. Having the opportunity at intermission to meet with the conductor and featured performer was a welcomed change from other performances I’ve been to, especially for the purpose of inspiring young musicians…” Caryn Stewart, Holden, MA
“I am impressed with the intimacy of the concert. The audience was certainly much more than a group of listeners, rather, one felt a part of the experience.” Meridith Meyers, Boston, MA
“A string ensemble at its best. Wonderful virtuosity. Magical. Flawless interpretations of classic masterpieces.”
The Boston Globe strongly commends the Boston Virtuosi for originality of programming and passionate, lyrical performances.
One sample of the body of positive comments, from a concert review:
“Paul Dulude is a professional violist with outstanding programming ideas and a grasp of the sense of music; he know how to get the character and color of sound he wants. Interesting repertoire you will hear nowhere else.” Richard Dyer, The Boston Globe.
