I have been attending Gabriel Chamber Ensemble concerts and events for a number of years. When I think back to those first few concerts, I remember marveling at the fact that I had experienced such a high caliper of performance here in small town USA. Some people think you can only have such a treat in a large metropolitan area. The members of this chamber orchestra are excellent, passionate, dedicated, musicians. They do more than bring sweet sounds to our ears. They care enough about the music to share their knowledge about composers and the structure of the music with their audiences making for a well rounded musical experience. These four musicians blend very well with each other and with guest musicians. I believe that guests probably jump at the chance to perform with them.

The Gabriel Chamber Ensemble brings the highest standards of musical performance in chamber music and a refined, elegant sense of programming to the area. As I look at the faces of people in the audience I realize that there is nothing like the power of classical music to lighten the burdens a daily life - especially in the current economic slump. Food for the soul, served with wit and flair. Bravo to you all. Cordially, Tony Cecere

The Gabriel Chamber Ensemble is a small group of very accomplished musicians committed to providing an exceptional level of music/culture/entertainment to the people of Schuylkill County and surrounding areas. The music is delightful. Concerts are presented in a close, comfortable surrounding that allows the audience to fully appreciate the quality of the music in each performance. It appears that their concerts are becoming increasingly popular with the public as word spreads about the group. It's an exciting and excellent opportunity for the people of our area to experience a style and quality of music not always available at venues outside the larger cities. The most recent performance (on Feb. 21, 2010) was the first opportunity my wife and I have had to attend a Gabriel Chamber Ensemble concert. We enjoyed the experience completely. The event was in every way above and beyond our expectations. I sincerely hope the concerts will continue for many years to come, exposing more people to a most pleasant and rewarding way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

I have enjoyed the warm simplicity of numerous performances over the years, i regret only that I have been unable to attend all. It is a struggle to maintain and preserve the presence of instrumental arts at this level
