Praise for Ezra’s conducting:
“……the reason most people see a Gilbert and Sullivan production is for the music and music director Ezra Donner does not disappoint. Under his direction the large orchestra is nuanced and does not overpower the singers and the chorus sounds terrific.”
“…a delightful community production, loaded with talent and laughs, that stays true to the original work without casting it in amber….the quality of the orchestra is simply outstanding under the direction of conductor Ezra Donner…”
