The Delaware Symphony Orchestra (Mrs. Everill's orchestra :) ) was nominated for a Latin Grammy for the recording with the LA Guitar Quartet we did in spring of '09 - Read about it here!
Our performance of the Brahms Double Concerto with the Newark Symphony was a great success! Thanks to all the students and parents who made that long trip!
Here are some reviews!
"Soloists Kathleen Hastings, violin and Cheryl Everill, cello, must have rehearsed a lot to play so perfectly together in some of the many passages where they had to play the same fast patterns of runs and arpeggios. They also ended the first movement’s furious finale on a dime. ...... The third movement was my favorite, with the cello’s brilliant attack on the motive which it then passed to the orchestra."

"Kathleen Hastings, violin and Cheryl Everill, cello were soloists in the Double Concerto for violin and cello by Johannes Brahms. Their smooth ensemble and the chiaroscuro contrast between soloists and orchestra was a pleasure to hear."
