“This stellar quartet featured Sheila Smyth and Valerie Sylvester on baroque violins…The tightly synchronized violins relished the sumptuous harmonies in this work…This group exhibited dynamic musical chemistry playing together with a light and lively sense of expression.”
“CONCORDO is a unique ensemble of professional musicians dedicated to collaborating with singers. Bringing together highly skilled musicians, under the keen leadership of concertmaster Valerie Sylvester, CONCORDO does not merely accompany…they perform…with the same zeal, artistry and professionalism one expects from one’s own choral ensemble.
Sensitivity to the human voice and flexible, polished playing is their hallmark.”
On concertmaster Valerie Sylvester:
“For several years now, Valerie has performed as lead violin for Opera York and also has put together a first-rate string section for every production. These musicians work well together and are a joy to collaborate with.”
