Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream, Omaha Symphony, Omaha World Herald:

“I’ve spent 35 years working with some of the very finest classical performers in our hemisphere and on a day-to-day basis, but no one prepared me for this ensemble!!! The musicianship, preparedness and timbre of sound were of the highest order. The blend of oboe and English horn with our Steinway was so beautiful and uplifting. Add Shelby’s voice and it simply threw me against the back wall!!! Such power, control, and stamina I have never heard before in one woman's voice. Experience I the Siren...they are simply not to be ignored nor ever forgotten!!!”
