“Prepare to be moved by Bach’s St. John Passion… This concert represents how Sellner so expertly crafts programs showcasing such masterworks. Sellner’s artists are talented, established and rising stars; they are expressive actors, committed to the audience as well as their art… Oratorios of this scope are tackled only by choirs and organizations that can truly deliver the solo, orchestral, and choral goods, and Resonance Works fits that bill.” - Y. Hudson, Pittsburgh in the Round
