Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall

“Weill Hall was the venue for yet another fine offering from Pro Musicis, featuring soprano Rachel Schutz. … Sincerity is the word that I believe best describes Ms. Schutz’s approach. … Her virtuosity was indisputable and made quite an impression on this listener … The audience rewarded Ms. Schutz with a well-deserved standing ovation. Let’s take a moment to offer kudos to the excellent pianist Timothy Long, who was an outstanding collaborator and a force in his own right.” —Jeffrey Williams for New York Concert Review
