What audiences are saying
Both Hodgson and Ivany are world-class performers whose solo performances were brilliant and inspirational!
Aaron Hodgson and Stephen Ivany played a lovely recital here at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem in November 2018. The music was eclectic and effective. Both students and faculty here at UNCSA enjoyed their playing immensely.
Incredible finesse and artistry... Their master class presentation was down to earth as both Stephen Ivany and Aaron Hodgson related so effectively to the students with invaluable information about the music business and entrepreneurship.
The master class discussion was absolutely to the core of what our students needed to hear. Both inspirational and informative, my students talked about it for the rest of the week. In addition, your recital was a wonderfully inspired and performed masterpiece!
Their performance was top-notch, their discussion of the music with the audience was informative and their interaction with our students was welcomed and very positive. I am looking forward to staying in touch with both of them and hoping to have them back again sometime in the future!
Dr. Hodgson and Dr. Ivany presented a world-class performance featuring many new works for their unique combination of instruments. They were also very generous with their time working with our students here at Appalachian State University. Their thoughtful suggestions to our students had lasting benefits that they still talk about today! Our students learned so much from both their performance and masterclasses, it was a very rewarding experience to all that took part in their residency.
