Carnival reviewed

There is a nice review of Sunday's chamber music concert, written by Lawrence Johnson and appearing in today's Sun-Sentinel: "New World Symphony serves French chamber works." I found out about it from my Grandma Lillian, who lives in Fort Lauderdale and called to report that my name was in the paper:
But the afternoon belonged to the 11 musicians, whose effervescent and immensely characterful playing made the performance so delightful. Anchored by terrific keyboard work by duo-pianists Yukiko Sekino and Ciro Foderé, the New World members threw themselves into the off-kilter spirit of Saint-Saëns' musical bestiary with immense spirit and refined Gallic finesse. Particularly notable were bassist Matthew Heller's lumbering pachyderm, Alice Dade's graceful avian solos and Alucia Scalzo's witty cuckoo.
