Editorial Reviews

Review

“I was impressed by the breadth and creativity of the program and the astonishing finesse. But this was neither the BSO nor the New England Conservatory Orchestra. It was the Longwood Symphony Orchestra.” —The Wall Street Journal

Read this prior to back surgery performed by a neurosurgeon who was and is a performing musician. Inspiring and reassuring at both her dedication and the crossover of abilities and talent.
