I have been following Octarium for several years. Attending concerts, and listening to their CD's. Every time I attend a performance I feel refreshed and enriched by the beauty of the music and the skill with which they present it. Can't get enough Octarium!

I heard Octarium sing at a local concert for the holidays and was blown away by the quality of their music. A friend of mine is in the group, and so to be honest, I first went to be nice. I left feeling totally different. The music moved me and their grace and humor was apparent. The group is quite talented and I would recommend their concerts to anyone!

Serendipity

Just by chance I was looking through local events in KC and came across your concert. I drove over two hours to hear the concert and it was time well spent. The vocals of the group lived up to their name. The selection of music was superb and the overall atmosphere was warm
and inviting. I look forward to many more concerts by this group of professionals.

The Listener's Choice Concert this evening, Feb. 19, was delicious! How they make eight notes sound like 18 is beyond me! Sing me to Heaven and Shenandoah were so lush, not to mention Over the Rainbow. Heart-melters! Don't miss your next opportunity to see/hear them. I won't!

I heard the Listener's Choice concert tonight Feb. 19; it was incredible as always. I never tire form hearing the perfect synchronicity of sound and silence from these 8 incredible voices. The Willow Song, A Boy and a Girl, and Sing Me to Heaven were breathtaking; I am in heaven still after the experience. A Fantastic concert! - Mark Meyerdirk

Great singing combined with great programming is hard to find. Couple that with genuine people, bringing their enthusiasm deirectly to the listener and you have Octarium. This organization helps make this part of the Midwest a vibrant place to live. It deserves our support.

Review from Guidestar

Octarium performed for the Crescendo Concert Series in St. Charles, MO in a previous season. I had heard them twice before, once travelling to KC to attend a concert on their home ground. They are a thoroughly professional and enjoyable ensemble with a great deal of audience appeal. Much attention to choral detail, some excellent solo voices. My admiration to their founder/director.

I am a long time resident of Kansas City with season tickets to several musical performance series (symphony, opera, etc.). I have heard Octarium in person and am always in awe of the sound that they create. I consider them to be one of the musical jewels of Kansas City. My most recent performance experience with them was their American Idyll concert in October 2010. This was held in the Auditorium of the WWI museum. The combination of the setting and the music really brought the meaning of the selections home to the audience. I brought along a friend who does not get to concerts very often. She is now a fan, too. She immediately checked her schedule to find the next concert when she, too, could introduce someone to this special group!

I had some new perspective on the American experience after the American Idyll concert. I was glad the group chose music going back to the native Americans. I was also glad they sang We Shall Overcome, a melody that brings back memories to anyone my age. I could tell the audience was especially moved by this. The audience immediately stood as one when The Star Spangled Banner was begun. Unity among a difference of opinions. Music communicates to all.

The only change I would like to see is more frequent concerts and more CD's for home listening. I am looking forward to their next release. I enjoy experiencing the different venues that are chosen for the concerts. Keep using the various "hidden" stages halls here in KC. It makes us all more aware of what we have right here at home.

Octarium recently performed at a community benefit/fundraising performance for us in Kansas City's urban core and they set a very high standard for the future of choral music on Troost Avenue. Their commitment to rebuilding our neighborhoods became real at this event and we are very grateful fo Octarium's efforts to help rebuild the health of KC neighborhoods through the arts. The Friends of St. Mark Lutheran Church are now looking forward to an annual Lessons and Carols and the continued celebration of fine music on Troost Avenue.
