Oboes, oboes d'amore, English horns and bassoon. Oh My! And, why not, we'll throw in piano and vocals as well. Because we can. Because we're the Double Reed Divas!
"You ladies are the best!! John and I were so impressed!....We sat in front because I wanted to be able to watch every Diva's hands. It was fun to hear all the different styles of music and variety of voices from the double reeds. John especially liked the depth of the bassoon's sound and I loved the jazz, especially the 'Blues'. And I really enjoyed the two oboes d'amore. (Maybe I'll have to buy one!) That last piece was a killer as your hands were all just blurs. I can't even think that fast!..."

" Dear Double Reed Divas,
Thank you, thank you and CONGRATULATIONS for a beautiful concert. I loved Timoteus Racz's Trio Capriccio, Op. 4, #3 and Romanze, Op. 4, #4. The Trio Capriccio reminded me of playing among wild flowers in fields in the Bohemian (Czech Republic) and Austrian mountains when I was a child, and Romanze brought shivers down my back - what talent! Please express my gratitude to Mr Racz....
