“The Hamilton-Fairfield Symphony (and Chorale) is one of the finest regional orchestras in the Cincinnati area, not just for the quality of its performances, but for the creativity of its programming.
Under music director Paul John Stanbery…..The achievement of the performers was inspiring, the content of the program, inspired.   Led by Stanbery, the combined forces of the orchestra and massed choirs made a splendid impression, one that begs for an encore……….In short, it was a concert to shed luster on the Greater Cincinnati community (and beyond), and in highlighting (Michael) Daugherty and his music, to foster appreciation of the finest in American music here and now.”–-Mary Ellyn Hutton—from her review
