"In the Midwest Chamber Ensemble, self-less, ego-less musicians help each other shine." -C.J. Janovy, KCUR
"The Midwest Chamber Ensemble is the most fearless ensemble in Kansas City. With only two seasons under its belt, the group of pre-professionals hasn’t shied away from presenting the typical Beethoven and Brahms but their commitment to new music and that of the 20th century is equally telling." -Lee Hartman, KCMETROPOLIS
