Rave reviews are in for Maestro ROBERT WOOD and UrbanArias production of “As One”!
“They were backed up by the inner dialogues of a string quartet (members of the Inscape Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Urban Arias founder Robert Wood) playing Kaminsky’s effective, direct music — evoking now fiddling and Americana; now, through halting dissonances, the pain of a difficult place in the road; now, through the juxtaposition of plucked violin and singing cello, the exploration of two voices merging into a single identity.” -Washington Post
“Wood conducted a string quartet (Sarah D’Angelo, Saskia Florence, Megan Yanik, Danielle Cho) that was much more than accompaniment; it became another character.” -DC Metro Theater Arts
“UrbanArias is a company that takes risks with new works, and these of necessity are developed over time and with the midwifery of several productions. For this, this show is to be highly commended, and As One has been given a very respectable production. Behind everything that UrbanArias presents stands Artistic Director Robert Wood, and he conducts the work with enthusiasm and a masterful understanding of its musical structure.” -DC Theatre Scene
“As the 4-member, Inscape Chamber Orchestra played under the thoughtful direction of Robert Wood, I could feel the colored, multi-dimensional dynamics Hannah experienced: it’s the HUMAN experience.” -MD Theatre Guide
