"I was nearly overwhelmed by the beauty of their sound, the tight ensemble, their range, their musicality, expressiveness, and technical skills." Kathleen Gerety, Program Committee Chamber Music Tulsa
"The playing was engaging and SO musical all the time. It was as impressive as we had hoped. one of the best concerts he’d attended in recent memory." Bruce Sorrell, Executive Director Chamber Music Tulsa
“The Kenari were flat-out amazing. Kinetic, physical players, they came close to choreographing Maslanka’s music — especially when riffs were passed down through the ensemble from top to bottom and up again. Their instrumental mastery was impressive, their tone beautiful, their intonation faultless.”
