I have been invited to perform with SBUN for the last two summers. It is wonderful to have a space to perform pieces that were meant to be played in a smaller ensemble. Chamber music enables for more intimate discussions during rehearsals; and therefore, more meaningful performances. I have also developed friendships with my fellow musicians at SBUN Michale, Sarah, Cindy, and Ken, among others. It was through music that these friendships were nurtured.

I am so glad people in Central Wisconsin get to experience this type of music making during the summers. SBUN fills an artistic niche needed in this community. I hope we are able to reach greater audiences. I look forward to many more years of exciting music making at SBUN.

I am so happy and honored that SBCE has chosen to play my string quartet, "Short Stories", and that their ensemble members have played it so beautifully. They have performed "Short Stories" a number of times, several times in concerts and several times in collaboration with other organizations: Puppet Network and the Miami Beach Senior High School's Academy of Visual and Performing Arts, for the show "Fantasma"; and with Dance Now!

It means a great deal to a living composer not only to have his music included on programs of a vibrant ensemble like SBCE but also to have them appreciate the music enough that it becomes part of their repertory.

Thank you, and Bravo! I look forward to more collaborations with you.

South Beach Chamber Ensemble brings wonderful music performances to the public in Miami and Wisconsin. They also provide a chance for musicians to perform great chamber music literature and work with composers on new pieces. I am one of those composers. They have supported my music for string quartet with multiple performances and commissioned one of my biggest works, for piano quintet. I attended performances in Miami and at their summer festival in Wisconsin. I met audience members who were inspired by SBCE concerts and I was inspired by the enthusiasm and musical quality of the musicians.
