Tours: America

In America, the Kent Camerata has performed chamber music concerts in New England, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Arizona, and Ontario.  Appearances at universities and community arts association concert series, often in response to return invitations, have also included maser classes.  Regarding a performance at Seton Hill University near Pittsburgh, the late Maestro Lorenzo Malfatti wrote:

“The Kent Camerata – skillful, talented individual musicians and imaginative programming combine to form an exciting  chamber music group that serves up an excellent, eclectic chamber music experience.” 

Other comments on concerts  include:

“Unusual programming and an equally unusual combination of instruments and voices are transformed through the alchemy of superb musicianship into infectiously enjoyable performances.  The Kent Camerata’s Toronto debut was well worth hearing.”   
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

“The entire ensemble gave a stunning performance of a variety of musical treasures, tasteful and outstanding, a treat for the faculty and students alike.” (Terry B. Ewell,  Chair  of  Music,  West Virginia University, Morgantown)

“Bravos to the ensemble for a uniformly strong  concert!    It was a pleasure to hear the excellent music from the Kent Camerata.” (Barbara Gottling, President, Cincinnati Chamber Music Society, Cincinnati, Ohio)

The Kent Camerata has toured  Arizona six times.  Concert appearances took place at Arizona State University in Tempe, Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Steinway Hall of Phoenix, community colleges, museums, and on concert series in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, and Surprise.  While in Arizona, the group has given several  school  concerts and workshop sessions.

“The two operatic voices, the pianist, violist, and bassoonist blended so beautifully, and when each of the performers played a solo, each was outstanding!  The voices were full and mellow, the pianist’s notes were so clear and fluid, the violist’s tone resonated deeply, and the bassoonist’s notes sang clearly and precisely.”  (Linda Schwartz, North Valley Arts Association, Anthem, Arizona)
