Did you catch Saturday's Review??

THE FIREBIRD was a spectacular program. We are so thankful to have the talented, in-demand Ricardo Morales with us. Here are some review highlights, written by Omaha World-Herald correspondent Ashley Wegner:

Morales produces a pure, wholesome sound ideal for those soaring orchestral clarinet solos. He also has the technical prowess needed to lead a pack of clarinets through virtuosic waters.

You can tell by watching him that he is a born performer. He grew up in a family of six children, all of whom are now professional musicians. In a video posted on YouTube, he says that when he was young, he would go door-to-door singing Christmas carols and Latin pop songs for the neighbors.

His lifelong experience as a performer is evident in his complete ease when he's front and center.

The Omaha Symphony was brilliant in its interpretation of the piece, enabling the audience to visualize not only the temperaments of this magical bird, but also his story.
