Quote Mark

I had the greatest pleasure to collaborate with the Orchestra UniMi in September 2014, at the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, as part of a CultureALL Association event. Having heard them previously in a concert, I was impressed by their musicianship. After our rehearsals and concerts, I became more than simply a conductor of this orchestra, but also a great fan. (…) I am proud of our success together, and I do hope we will have the opportunity to make music again in the future.

John Axelrod
