“To be sure, there were a couple of impressive conductors – Ho-Yin Kwok was outstanding in his attention to detail and his command of the 'big picture' in Felix Mendelssohn's  'Hebrides' Overture.”

​- Classical Voice of North Carolina

"His time management and respectful demeanor made rehearsals so productive and enjoyable. He obviously knew exactly what he wanted to hear from the ensemble and how much time it would take to achieve his goals. At the same time he was also very receptive to ideas. This created an environment where all the players were equally invested in a unified, impassioned sound. He's the kind of person that reminds you why playing in an ensemble is so powerful and impactful."


- Musician of University of Minnesota
