Here’s what some of our previous audiences have said about Astraios concerts:

“As a non-musician (but avid listener) this was a most enriching experience. The personal contact added so much to the enjoyment. Any information was appreciated and added to my understanding. Absolutely exquisite!”

“I think this would appeal to many audiences, both non-musicians and musicians.”

“I am absolutely swept away by the beauty and perfection of your performance!  I love the way you also educate the audience.  Thank you for a marvelous afternoon!”

“I will never listen to music in the same way!”

“Accessible, responsive, informative and enthusiastic.

“I appreciated the time of conversation with the musicians.”

“Wonderfully enjoyable–informative setting with personal performers and a good selection of music.”

“I love the concept of a story with the music–it adds so much.”

“Presenter talked to us, not at us.  I felt an increased understanding of the intent of the music.”

“For their size (three people) they sounded like an entire orchestra!”

“The musicians engaged me directly, reminding me that I am part of the performance.”
