"This was the first performance of the Colorado Wind Ensemble that I have heard . . . I came away wondering why this organization is not better known. They play so well that they can certainly promote its wind ensemble repertoire. There are members of this ensemble who are absolutely stellar members of some of the community orchestras in the Denver metro area, and when they are combined as members of the Colorado Wind Ensemble, this organization truly excels. Their playing is intensely musical, and there is no question that they take great pride in being true musicans." -- Robin McNeil
