"Orchestra audience on feet for Amram. The audience repeated this tribute twice for Amram and the Philadelphia Orchestra".
PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER

"If you have not yet encountered this extraordinary man of music, you will marvel at his multiple gifts as a composer, conductor and solo instrumentalist."

NEW YORK TIMES

"...conducting his opera "Twelfth Night", Amram shows remarkable skill in ensemble writing, thematic development and musical characterization."

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

"He is a composer of major stature, a conductor of winning authority and a jazz musician of noble intent and entertaining brilliance."

NEWHOUSE PAPERS

"Amram may be able to play more types of music than any other man. He is a relentless pied-piper of pan cultural persuasiveness, leading listeners into a global circle that brings all peoples together."
