Working with Ben was a pleasure from the start. We had some difficulty selecting a processional piece, but Ben was right there to lend his professional insight and support. Polite, conscientious, and a talented musician, he is a rising star to be sure!
We booked Ben for my father's memorial service. He was quick to respond to my questions and very professional. We asked him to play 2 preludes from Bach cello suites. He arrived well in advance to trouble shoot any issues. His performance was beautiful. A fitting tribute to my father, who loved Bach. Thank you, Ben!
Response from Benjamin Fryxell:
Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a privilege to work with you, and to help to honor his remarkable legacy.
All my best,
Ben performed beautifully at my father's memorial service. First and foremost his expression and technical skill at the cello was outstanding. With respect to his communication, Ben was prompt and considerate in all of his interactions. He sent a number of suggested recordings for his performance. He was flexible and helpful, suggesting specific compositions but also responding to my preferences. He arrived early, coordinated well with our organist and he solo performance left nothing to desire. We appreciated his consideration. His performance enhanced our memorial service immeasurably.
Response from Benjamin Fryxell:
Thank you so much for your kind words! It was a beautiful service, and I am honored to have been a part of it.
All the best,
I hired Benjamin to play with my orchestra at the Carnegie Hall, he is very professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend him!
