“This group of super talented musicians takes listeners on an amazing, interactive musical adventure. The Reed Quintet is innovative, youthful, and full of enthusiasm. Given the young, energetic musicians, the interactive quality of the concert, and the quintet’s amazing musical ability, this was one of the best concerts I’ve ever attended.” – Maryland Theatre Guide
