ACCLAIM FOR LIEDER ALIVE!
from San Francisco Classical Voice
“Lieder Alive! Is Very Much Alive” – Janos Gereben
“Violinist Zakarias Grafilo’s arrangements for voice and string quartet helped bring Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder and Mahler’s Rückert-Lieder to life
in an invigorating performance by mezzo-soprano Kindra Scharich and the Alexander String Quartet.” – Rebecca Wishnia

• The The San Francisco Examiner on January 24, 2015 featured a major article about our Neue Lieder composer, Michael Kaulkin. In the article, Mr. Kaulkin shares about his career, his inspirations, and the poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff from whose works his compositions take flight.
• The Napa Valley Register Guard on March 12, 2014 featured a major article about our very own composer-in-residence, Kurt Erickson.
