Maestro Paul Vermel -“Barbara Hedlund is a talented, intelligent musician operating with an informed viewpoint in all musical styles. The rare combination of technical mastery, musicality, sensitivity, & authority, I am consistently impressed with her performances as soloist, chamber musician, orchestral player, and leader. She is exacting, demanding, extremely effective in her methods, & always with an encouraging, positive attitude. I am happy to recommend her without any reservation".
