The Critics are Ecstatic ...

"All I can say is ... “Bravo, Riverside County Philharmonic!”
In fact, it can hold its own with any major classical
orchestra in America."
- S. Earl Statler, San Bernardino Sun, 2007

"The Philharmonic is a powerful, well-oiled music machine."
- Mark Benoit, Press Enterprise, 2007

"The Riverside County Philharmonic can no longer claim
to be a little community orchestra. An assemblage of
decidedly young, intensely focused musicians, RCP has
grown in quality to rival any symphonic orchestra I have
heard. Double the size of the string sections, solidify the
horn performances, and you could be hearing the Los
Angeles Philharmonic."
- Sherli Leonard Press Enterprise, 2008

"Flynn energizes the musicians to commit completely
to the art in the heart of the music."
- Sherli Leonard Press Enterprise, 2008

"The strings were silky smooth, the brass was powerful and
precise, and the woodwinds were delightfully bright. …
the orchestra performed fabulously as a unit, delivering a
superb reading of this monumental symphony(Beethoven
“Eroica”) …the audience leapt to its feet in the evening’s
third standing ovation. Flynn has assembled a majestic
music-making body in the Riverside County Philharmonic."
- Mark Benoit, Press Enterprise, 2008

"The best orchestra in Southern California"   
  - The San Bernardino Sun

“Flynn and the players turned on the high voltage,
 and the electricity reached all corners of the hall.”
- The Press Enterprise

“The music here in Riverside is so valiant and beautiful,
 that hearing it makes even the cheapest wine taste
 like private  stock.”
- The Highlander

“This orchestra knows the real meaning of crescendo and
 decrescendo, astutely using them to build emotion
 in the listener, thereby creating energy and power.”
- The Desert Sun

“The orchestra has become a major cultural presence in
 Southern California, let alone the Inland Empire.
 If the word ‘asset’ has any meaning, it belongs to Flynn
 and the orchestra.”
- The Press-Enterprise

“Their lively performances have a conviction and tautness
 that compel…a high level of communication.”
- The Los Angeles Times

“The effect was dazzling, and the patrons left humming
 the catchy melody.”
- The Daily Bulletin
