From the Press:

*"Although the musicians may “relax” with their audience, which they view as their guests and friends, their playing is in no way relaxed or scaled back; it is serious, world-class professional...It is the combination of all of these elements, the fine music, the unique attractive and charming venue with good acoustics in its lovely setting, the musicians (hosts, hostesses, and visiting), the warm welcome and ambiance, and the personalized touches that make this festival at the same time different from so many others and so very special, and have kept people coming back regularly (sometimes persistently!) for so many years. If you find yourself in Western Mass on a summer Sunday afternoon and want a rewarding and satisfying experience, head to So. Worthington to hear a Sevenars concert."
From the feature article " The Sevenars Concerts: Forty Years of Love and Devotion" in Classical Voice of New England, 2008
