“Marina Alexander has brought The Arcadian Chorale to a high performance level through meticulous preparation…. and intelligence in the interpretations.. The polished phrasing and  clear diction of the choir throughout the concert were a testament to  her expertise in choral conducting and her solid musicianship."

Asbury Park Press

“The Arcadian Chorale...celebrated its …Anniversary season... with a   heart- pumping program, titled “Anniversary Waltzes.” Alexander is a first-rate conductor, and her leadership shows in the consistently warm and rich sound of the ensemble, sharply focused vocal lines, and precise  articulation...a highly effective and emotional journey.  The voices here were confident and soaring..."

[Re: Carnegie Hall, May 2, 2008].…”For Verdi's Requiem the smaller Arcadian Chorale and Richmond Choral Society [both] trained by Marina  Alexander joined the St. Cecilia Chorus....From the hushed  opening  'Requiem aeternam' it was apparent that a lot of care had gone into   preparing this work. The clarity of diction here and  throughout the work, the  attention paid to detail, greatly enhanced the dramatic impact of the softer  sections, perfectly balancing the visceral effect of the 'Dies Irae' choruses.  Overall, the singing was precise, focused, and well-balanced.”
