Terra Voce has put together a charming CD... The playing is expressive and lyric... All in all the playing of Brightbill and Gabbert is quite spectacular.

CD review of "The Frost Is All Over", January 2013 issue

Terra Voce possesses a depth of artistry and musicianship that goes well beyond each performer's effortless technique, luxurious tone, and impeccable sense of ensemble. The group's exceptional vocal qualities transport the audience to another world where singing, story-telling, and dancing meet.

I had the good fortune of working with Terra Voce as part of the Flute/Cello Commissioning Circle project and was profoundly moved by their rendering of my work, Dviraag. I was honored to have my composition included as part of their singular programming, which easily enchants audiences of all varieties with its unique world view. Both performers interpret each piece with exceptional attention to nuanced musical details. Terra voce is a remarkable duo, combining expert skill and musical sensitivity to deliver truly unique presentations for the flute and cello.

I have been meaning to write you to tell you how much we enjoyed your performance... We were surprised and quite pleased with the breadth of your program... and your introduction to each piece was charming, informative, and also felt so personal. I have been to the Met, many times to the ballet, and to Broadway shows, and your performance was as good as any I have ever seen.

What an outstanding, thrilling program you two presented. Your individual unique virtuosity was awesome. I don't really have the right words to express to you how much I enjoyed your performance. All I can say is that I was treated to one of the most exciting and fulfilling musical programs I have ever seen or heard.

We and the rest of the audience were simply stunned by your instrumental skills, your complimentary musical bond with each other and the wide variety of styles in the pieces you performed.

I attended your performance yesterday, and I must say I was blown away by your music...At times it sounded like a multitude of instruments, instead of just two.

Thank you for coming to Scottsville...and painting the theatre with the sounds of flute and cello. I have only heard good, positive remarks from those who attended. One parent told me both of her children couldn't stop talking about the instruments and music. It does the heart good to have comments like this coming from our youngsters. Others commented on the variety of music and especially your dialogue throughout. The program you presented was perfect and fits our mission of providing quality arts education to our audiences and participants.

As Musicians-in-Residence with the Art of Healing program at Hillcrest Medical Center, Elizabeth and Andrew had a wonderful and important impact on patients’ feelings of well-being. Their exquisite duets would always soothe emotions and lift spirits for a few welcome minutes at a time of crisis in peoples’ lives. Most memorably, Elizabeth and Andrew affected the vitality of a patient in the Long Term Acute Care ICU unit by touching her spirit with their music, so much so that she was able to endure a particularly rigorous therapy session far beyond expectations. The nurses and therapists were brought to tears to see this woman who had been so weak, exert such life force. Sometimes touching a person’s spirit is just as vital during their journey of healing as excellent medical care.

As soon as the first notes paint the air you know you're in for something special. These guys have some of the purest tone in town.

Not a surprise was the quality of some of the solo performances from the orchestra, especially principal flute Elizabeth Brightbill...

Hamlisch’s music from the film “Sophie’s Choice” was presented well nigh perfectly, highlighted by a pair of excellent solos from cellist Andrew Gabbert.
