"This performance [of Anton Webern's "Five Pieces for Orchestra"] emphasized the titles of the movements that abound with words like “tenderly,” “extremely calm” and “very flowing.” As disjointed as the music might seem, conductor Singher created a forward flow that provided a lovely connection of sounds that became the melody." – Roger Emanuels, Performing Arts Monterey Bay October 11, 2016

"the Colligan Theater in Santa Cruz almost sold out of seats to those who came to hear the Espressivo orchestra play Schoenberg ["Pierrot lunaire"] and Stravinsky ["Histoire du Soldat"] in an ambitious undertaking" – Scott MacClelland, Performing Arts Monterey Bay April 12, 2016

"The full house rewarded the performance with a sustained standing ovation--shared I'm sure by the composer, this work [Gustav Mahler's "Das Lied von der Erde"], the performers and their conductor's insightful vision." – Scott MacClelland, Performing Arts Monterey Bay January 12, 2016

"[Mozart, Ibert, Wagner, Hindemith were] a tremendous success under conductor Michel Singher" – Roger Emanuels, Performing Arts Monterey Bay September 14, 2015
