“The ensemble performed at our Burns night Supper in January 2012. We had not considered hosting such an event before, but her combination of Jazz with traditional Scottish themes appealed to us. It was a huge success attracting a diverse audience; the blend of Scottish music, readings and song provided a wonderful entertainment, not only to the number of Scots present but to those who attended out of curiosity. I have no hesitation in recommending Magdalena for similar events” Graeme Coles, manager, Deans Place, Alfriston
FLUTE AND HARP DUO
Review of one of Amara's Brighton Festival Concerts:
“Early Evening Flute & Harp Recital
The musical duo is clearly talented and work absolutely wonderfully accompanying each other. With Magdalena Reising on pedal harp and Udita Everett on flute, the pair played a mixture of genres ranging from contemporary to classical. The music was uplifting, peaceful and emotive and it was clear that all of us in the audience were touched in some way by the magical compositions arranged for flute and harp. A beautiful evening of beautiful music in the grand setting of Stanmer House. It doesn’t get much better than that.
