“On Friday, April 22, my wife, a friend and I attended the premiere performance of The Delphi Chamber Orchestra. It was an all Mozart program consisting of “The Overture to Le Nozze Di Figaro”, “Sinfonia Concertante in E Flat Major, and “Symphony No. 40 in G Minor”. It turned out to be an incredible and thoroughly enjoyable concert. We were all amazed that the skill and professionalism of the musicians and guest soloists. We have bragged about the event ever since and have joined The Delphi Orchestra as patrons. Finally, we are not alone in our reaction to that performance. At the end, the audience gave the performance a rare standing ovation.”
“My 12 y.o. son Justin plays piano, trumpet and violin, and wants to be a composer when he grows up. His Delphi Chamber Orchestra experiences are a big part of his inspiration! […] It was a Saturday evening, we got to the church on the New Haven green early to get a good seat for the concert. Front center chairs! Debussy’s Afternoon of a Fawn opened the concert as a delicate dream, and the closing Mendelsohn’s Italian Symphony proved worthy of its popularity…but in between came the magical highlight, to hear the most perfect Diva Sherezade Panthaki pour liquid diamonds into Strauss lieder! From afar Justin and I had long noticed Sheherezade as extraordinary (ex: hearing her sing Bach’s Matthew Passion) but to sit 10 feet from the singing goddess was to visit heaven! Each musician was so close, each could be distinguished by the ear, each so polished and in perfect timing with the rest. Driving home came the cherry: “Dad, will they ever play one of mine?”
“What a delight to attend the Delphi performances. The opportunity to be up close to such talented musicians is a unique experience for me a long time classical fan. I especially savor being a witness to the electricity emanating between the conductor and the musicians. I most certainly will mark my calendar regarding future performances.”
