"While interesting music programming abounds in Boston,
the creative energy of the Chameleon Arts ensemble offers
a range in repertoire that many of the long-established groups
should learn from. Artistic Director Deborah Boldin continues
to find a path of adventure and excitement for her group or
"a compelling and dynamic ensemble."
"The Chameleon Arts Ensemble of Boston offered a program
of exhilarating variety, with music spanning three centuries,
all of it written by women."
"The musicians of the Chameleon ensemble offer a high
standard of artistry. With such insightful programming, I
would keep an eye on their future offerings."
"Full of exuberant and piquant energy, Nancy Dimock
(oboe), Boldin (flute) and guest pianist Virginia Eskin brought
warm sunshine and the scent of citrus into the room with their
"Emphasizing their commitment to a wide range of styles,
the Chameleon Arts Ensemble offered a fascinating program,
with little-known works by women composers of the 19th, 20th
and 21st centuries."
"The Chameleon Arts Ensemble knows what they're doing
and they do it well. While the ensemble and its players can
hardly still qualify in the category of young-and-hungries,
they're all smart, and many are seasoned from years in Boston
and New York ensembles."
"Maurice Ravel's 'Introduction and Allegro' is typically
Ravelian with its delicious instrumentation and big, gorgeous
sounds. It's realy a showpiece for the harpist, and Anna Reinersman
was magical, her fingers glistening with ease across a wide
range of colors and dynamics. She led an accomplished ensemble
including Chameleon Artistic Director Deborah Boldin, flute,
and violist Scott Woolweaver, who played with a little gold
reptile perched on his right shoulder."
"There's something exhilarating about the crisp clean
sonorities a woodwind quintet offers
.Nancy Dimock, on
the oboe, had a chance to soar, to swoop, glide, leap, cascade,
which she did, rapturously and full of spontaneous momentum."
