"Good a cappella choral music requires strong voices, good harmony, close coordination, and astute selections. The Chestnut Street Singers scored in all four categories."

— Tom Purdom, Broad Street Review

"The unaccompanied Chestnut Street Singers performed four selections from the set with a purity of tuning that defied comparison, an immaculacy of blend through the vocal range that was stunning, a scope of dynamics from soft to loud that was sweeping, an eloquence of phrasing that was ravishing and an intensity of textural commitment that was inspiring."

— Michael Caruso, Chestnut Hill Local

The Chestnut Street Singers is a mightily impressive ensemble...I was instantly blown away by their rhythmic vitality, uniform diction, and clean distinct vocal lines.”

"Listening to the Chestnut Street Singers' beautifully blended voices and tight formations in dynamic ebbs and flows in the music was a joy. Based on themes for past and future concerts, it appears that the excellent programming in this concert is not a fluke."
