"I greatly enjoyed my visit to Texas State University, where I encountered committed, idealistic young musicians eager for artistic and practical exchanges and whose work on my completion of the Mozart Requiem was inspiring and deeply satisfying."
-Robert Levin, international scholar and performer, Harvard University
"I was really amazed at the level of focus and attention from each one of the students. Working with college choirs throughout the country, I can tell you that this level is very high when compared with all other collegiate choral programs."
-Dr. Bruce Browne, Portland State University, Portland Symphonic Choir
"The students at Texas State University are some of the most honest and sincere musicians you will ever meet. The beauty of their performance is reflected in the beauty of the campus, deep in the heart of Texas Hill Country. To have been a part of their choral family is a gift I will always treasure."
-Matthew Oltman, Chanticleer, Music Director Emeritus
