"The Portland Youth Symphony Orchestra tackled Leonard Bernstein's fantastically difficult Symphonic Dances from West Side Story with near professional virtuosity."

Christopher Hyde

Portland Press Herald

"I've heard many positive comments from both the musicians and members of the audience.  We all agree that not only do you have excellent conducting skills, but also great 'people skills'.  You are able to make your point without offending anyone and even throw in a little humor."

Louise Saunders

Stockton Symphony

"Robert Lehmann conducted a triumphant...(performance of Mahler's Third Symphony).  From the end of the movement on, things just got better and better.  The transitions...were just as the composer intended."

Christopher Hyde

Portland Press Herald
