“The young musicians of Trio Falso Baiano will make you dance, cry, laugh and marvel at their instrumental skill and love for a music that is centuries old but sounds as fresh as ever.” — Joseph DeFranchisci, San Francisco Bay Guardian

“I hope you were as happy with last night’s Hunt Club appearance as I was. It was great fun, and the personalities of you and the others came through clearly with the music. For making music in such an intimate and sincere way, I’m very grateful. The extra touches of costume, movement, variety,imagination, and fun were extraordinary. It seemed like you all went the extra mile for our audience, and that matters a lot. You made a very big impact in a small space. The musical selections were interesting and varied, and I appreciate the care and complexity it took with Rachael Worby to put this together perfectly. Thank you.
Please share our congratulations with all the group. I hope I get to hear you again soon, and that there’s more work together in our future.
Best wishes for big success in all that’s ahead for you.” — John Hancock, Executive Director of The Pasadena POPS Orchestra
