“Nicholas Kraemer directing with characteristic insight & ebullience”

Nicholas Kraemer, conductor c. Jim Steere… with the MOB orchestra and chorus in top form, and Nicholas Kraemer directing with characteristic insight and ebullience, Monday night’s concert at the Harris Theater proved more than the sum of its parts and made an enjoyable and exhilarating leadoff for the ensemble’s season.

Impeccably balanced, with superb choral singing, and played with polish and fine vitality across all sections, the English conductor put across the jubilant moments as surely as the passages of introspection and spiritual solace. ” Read the full review at Chicago Classical Review
