May 2015 review:

"Dolanc's STARS ALONE was absolutely BRILLIANT!! Lovely, intense, soothing...  so many emotions.  The [singers] and [orchestra] breathing together...  Dolanc didn't compose a piece for voices and strings, but instead invented a new type of ensemble! It was a joy to experience... "
