"Thoughtfully assembled, the program’s three very different contemporary classical pieces 

told their own stories separately and a different one together."

-Sherri Rase, QonStage, May, 2014


“Each of the members of Mimesis Ensemble holds such a critical role in the music made 

by the ensemble, and they watch one another so closely that you could almost see the web 

of gazes formed by the energy that binds them together.  This was an evening of stellar 

music with great depth of content and I look for great things from this group, dedicated to 

showcasing the works of 20th and 21st century composers.”

-Sherri Rase, QonStage, May, 2013


“The very impressive Mimesis Ensemble, under the assured, dextrous leadership of Scott 

Dunn, plays a crucial role in this music drama, with special praise due the solo string players 

and the two trumpeters, who provide unsettlingly dissonant fanfares.”

-Joshua Rosenblum, Opera News, April, 2013


“The Mimesis Ensemble staged a program featuring works...to rival any Shostakovian thrills 

filling the halls further up Broadway.”  

-Alan Young, Lucid Culture, January, 2013


“[The Mimesis Ensemble organized] an appealing program of 20th and 21st century works.”

-Vivien Schweitzer, The New York Times, January, 2012


“The ambitious vocal-instrumental ensemble has put together an intriguing program.”

-Time Out New York, January, 2012


“The attempt of the Mimesis Ensemble is ambitious.  Their product is triumphant!”

-Gunther Schuller, Pulitzer Prize winning composer, April, 2009
