Reviews and Press


Crossing Borders Music offers a bracing mix of music by African-American women” in a performance that was “shapely, synergic,” “impassioned,” and “stellar”!

Chicago Classical Review

“Wow.  I was amazed at the overall quality of the music making, the new pieces and composers introduced, etc.  And the simplicity and softsell of the whole performance and broadcast wound up being deeply moving and inspiring… some performers and composers we can take notice of in the future, too!”

Music Critic Andrew Patner, WFMT

“Crossing Borders Music Collective Baha’i music program truly inspires:” the musicians “lift[ed] up hearts, minds and souls with their remarkable talent and musical works.”

                                             Music Critic Kelly Milionis,, four-star review

“A TimeOut Chicago Critic’s Pick!”
