After standing ovations and cheers for more, the audience members all
agreed that the Wyndfall Trio was "the most enjoyable concert they
had ever heard".
"Stunning...Magnificant...Incredible technique and musicianship...Beautiful
and exquisite...cannot wait to hear more in November at the Sounds
of Harvest and Holly concert at the Fox theater on November 14th".
Thank you to the Haxtons for being such wonderful, warm and inviting
"The remarkable flutist Tracy Harris gave a fine performance
of a "Carmen Fantasy" a musical triumph."
Kenneth Brown - Santa Barbara News
Tracy Harris presented her credentials with a
work containing tongue defying flute licks..some razzle and a lot
of dazzle. Harris whose beautiful tone and sensitive playing have
been remarked upon many times by this
critic over the years, made high art
of it all.." "If a single award were
to be given for highest intellectual achievement
of the most subtle nature, I'd bestow in on principal flutist
Tracy Harris, whose playing throughout the symphony
was poignant, elegantly nuanced, beautifully cognizant."
Daniel Kepl - Santa Maria Times
afternoon closed with the 3rd movement of
Poulenc's delightful Sonata for Flute and Piano, with Tracy
Harris in top form in this tricky fast number"

consider Tracy Harris a superiorly talented
musician and instrumentalist. She is a perfectionist
in the best sense of the word and will leave no stone unturned
until she has found her answer, either technically or interpretively.
Her sound is big, solid and beautiful, she can control it
to suit the character of the music, and
she performs with gusto. Tracy
is also a friendly and generous person, makes friends easily
and can contribute greatly toward a warm atmosphere
in any situation."

is a fine flautist who demonstrated the kind of serious commitment which
is so important to a professional career in music. I think you will
find her possessing the kind of mature professional attitude which will
contribute to both your own educational environment and the professional
standards which you will try and instill in your organization. I
recommend her without reservation.”

is my great pleasure to recommend Ms. Tracy Harris. Tracy has proven
to be among the most gifted young artists. Tracy’s music making
is special. She combines an impressive technical arsenal and
a deeply felt sense of musicality with a flair for performance that results
in artistic expression at the highest level."
Gary Woodward - Faculty, USC
"She has an ability to analyze her own
growth, and does not settle back in satisfaction,but presses on toward
goals beyond her years. Her repertoire of
concerti, sonatas, virtuoso pieces, and orchestral excerpts exceed requirements
of the great conservatories in this country and in France.
My support of this gifted flutist is absolute. She must be treated
with respect and is a artist of unlimited scope."
