“The integration of the GMCW with the classical music of the magnificent orchestral and vocal piece Carmina Burana, the superb singers of the New York City Master Chorale, the colorful flavor and physical agility of the Gallim Dance Company, and the accompaniment of three superb operatic soloists was flawless and fluid.” – David Friscic, DC Metro Theater Arts, May 11, 2016

“O Magnum Mysterium by Lauridsen (b. 1943) opened the second half, sung a capella by the New York City Master Chorale under the very dynamic Thea Kano. The singers brought out the composer’s subtle dissonances with sensitivity and precision.” – New York Concert Review, May 25, 2009 (Full review)

“…Nicholas Flagello’s lifetime of music composition was recalled as the elegant New York City Master Chorale presented Flagello’s work The Passion of Martin Luther King…The Chorale lent an air of simple but poignant elegance to the performance…” – Soundview News, April 4, 2008
