Kathleen and Cheryl's performance of the Brahms Double Concerto with the Newark Symphony was a great success! Read our reviews!
"Soloists Kathleen Hastings, violin and Cheryl Everill, cello, must have rehearsed a lot to play so perfectly together in some of the many passages where they had to play the same fast patterns of runs and arpeggios. They also ended the first movementís furious finale on a dime. ...... The third movement was my favorite, with the celloís brilliant attack on the motive which it then passed to the orchestra."

"Kathleen Hastings, violin and Cheryl Everill, cello were
soloists in the Double Concerto for violin and cello
by Johannes Brahms. Their smooth ensemble and the chiaroscuro
contrast between soloists and orchestra was a pleasure to hear."
