“… I realized that part of what I like is that you and your crew do serious music without taking yourselves too seriously...you sort of break the bubble of pretension that sometimes surrounds new music and allow the earthy grounded-ness of MUSIC to just be....even when you are mad kicking artistic and esthetic ass…"
- Robert Brashear, Pastor at West-Park Presbyterian Church.
“These men and women are creating exciting music with elements of jazz, world music and many experimental techniques blended with equal parts classical tradition and playing techniques.”
- from Music Notes: Classical music evolves By Carlton Wilkinson. (full article)
"For the past 30 years, Composers Concordance has been a booster for local composers, through both its concerts across the city and a record label.”
-The Wall Street Journal.
"Enterprising new music organization"
-The New York Times.
"Composers Concordance in my opinion is an extremely important arts organization and the entire music world is better off because of them. Gene Pritsker, Milica Paranosic and Dan Cooper do fantastic work on what is a never-ending contribution to music".
- Peter Jarvis, percussionist, composer, educator
"There is considerable evidence to show that Composers Concordance may be one of the most exciting labels in American contemporary music."
