“Barnaby is a truly talented conductor in his own right and has been invaluable in helping me create performances of depth and interest. During our many performances and recording sessions he has offered valuable insight that has contributed to my musical vision… [He] has earned the respect of the musicians musically and personally… Barnaby Palmer would be a tremendous asset to the musical fabric of any organization.”
