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."
Stephen Fiol, Stage Director & Retired Dean Millikin University - "We've enjoyed so many productions together and it's been my privilege working with you. I always rest east knowing you are playing, knowing you are committed to excellence and problem solving. Thank you for all you have done for the production in and out of the pit."
