Quidditas reviews

“How lucky we were to have the Quidditas ensemble respond ‘yes’ to our invitation for an encore performance at the Chestnut Hill Library. A genuine treat-an entertaining and educational evening of beautiful medieval, Renaissance and Celtic music-interesting old instruments-a charming, talented group of musicians-plus surprises such as original poetry and juggling. All in attendance agreed that it was a comfortable, pleasant, old-fashioned evening full of entertainment for the entire family.”

-R.E. Polsky, President, Friends of the Chestnut Hill Library

"The children of the Philadelphia City Institute Library were given a rare treat when Quidditas performed for us as part of our summer reading program. It was easy to imagine the world of knights and fair damsels while listening to instruments and songs of that long ago time. The juggler/poet did not fail to dazzle young and old alike!"

-Karen Fleck, Children's Librarian, Philadelphia City Institute Library

"Playing period instruments, Quidditas showed impressive flexibility performing the varied repertoire...The demonstration was presented with a spirit of enthusiasm and a spirit of fun, with each member of the ensemble providing interesting historical and personal commentary. With rhythmic vitality and nuance, their performance charmed the audience from the youngest children to the professional musicians among us."

-Alison Neely, Young Artists Program Director, Westminster Conservatory

"Quidditas is a marvelous ensemble! Their talents and scholarship,combined with personality and charm, create an memorable musical experience. Music lovers of all ages will greatly enjoy these concerts."

-John Nester, General Music Teacher and Band Director, Brookhaven Christian Academy
