“On behalf of the Heckscher Museum I would like to thank you, Richard and the Counterclockwise Ensemble for a phenomenal performance. The energy and audience response was off the charts!  Rich Stein’s eclectic composing and arranging is brilliant in addition to the virtuosity and musicianship of the entire Ensemble. Their enthusiasm is infectious! We look forward to having them fill the museum once again with music.”  Che Sabalja, Program Director, Heckscher Museum of Art

The Counterclockwise Ensemble is a truly unique and talented quintet that offered such an uplifting performance of contemporary American chamber music. The audience didn’t want the show to end!”  Maureen Norton, Program Director, Bernards Township Library

“Patrons at the Sayreville Public Library absolutely LOVED The Counterclockwise Ensemble!  I still am receiving compliments about the group weeks after their performance.  The performance was captivating and made for a lovely afternoon at the library.  As the library’s program coordinator, I not only appreciated their talent, but also their sheer professionalism.  I cannot wait to have them back here again.  If you want to impress an audience, book The Counterclockwise Ensemble!”  Alaina Dowd, Sayreville Free Public Library, Parlin, NJ

“Our Library audience, who has experienced a variety of musical programs, was THRILLED by CC Ensemble.  They play unique, inspiring, original music–it is refreshing to hear a group of musicians with obvious respect for one another and their music.  I highly recommend CC for (other) venue(s).  It was the best performance of our summer series!”  Debbie Maynard, West Milford Library, NJ
