Her performances have been most recently reviewed in the Boston Musical Intelligencer.
"It was bewildering to hear two “up-and-coming” performers play with the organic togetherness of musicians who have been collaborating for decades. It’s not just a matter of execution, but that sort of higher tier of interpretation that gives vibrancy to a performance."
