A quote from Charles Rex

"It is always a pleasure to come to Staten Island and play with Maestro Alan Aurelia. For this latest concert in which I appeared, the orchestra, as always, was well-prepared and sounded beautiful. Maestro Aurelia brings out the best from his musicians, and Richmond County is fortunate to have such a fine cultural resource that is much deserving of its continued support and attendance."

Charles Rex, New York Philharmonic
