“The Paganini work was flanked by two equally interesting and musically strong performances that once again demonstrated WCO’s ongoing excellence under the baton of Maestro Andrew Sewell.”


—  Sarah Linn, The Tribune

“Outdoor concerts. Unconventional new venues. Pop music-driven programs exploring everything from movie soundtracks to video game scores. These are some of the ideas the San Luis Obispo Symphony’s new music director is considering to attract more concert-goers…“Relevance is the key word.”

—  Sandy Tabachnick, The Isthmus

“Sewell has gained a reputation for his verve, fresh approach and sunny disposition. But he also conducts the dark pathos of classical music well. I've never forgotten his luminous reading of Schubert's transcendental Death and the Maiden during the WCO's Masterworks season.”


—  Sandy Tabachnick, The Isthmus

"Like Steve Jobs created devices you hadn't known you needed, Andrew programs music that you didn't know you needed to hear."

—  John W. Barker, The Isthmus

“Once again, Maestro Andrew Sewell bravely barged into familiar big-orchestra warhorse repertoire to show what his “chamber” orchestra can do. And they did him proud, playing with discipline and spirit that many a prestigious orchestra might envy.”

—  Sarah Linn, The Tribune

“Andrew Sewell, the malleable maestro of the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra. Conductor brings a flexible, collaborative approach to the podium.”

—  Pawan Naidu, The Cap Times

“From humble beginnings of just providing free concerts to the public, today it has grown to upwards of an audience of 30,000 to 40,000,” Sewell said. We now have generations of people returning with their children.”
