Mozart & Gershwin in Italy,
April 2010

“Beginning with the two spirituals Steal Away & Ride Up in the Chariot…conductor Marc-André Bougie and soprano Candace Taylor showed a clear familiarity with the music, and they received a well-deserved round of applause from the public.”

Princess Ida,
July 2006

“A bright engagement… highlighted by bright vocal work and energetic performances the production …deserves full houses…  A lively performance from the orchestra and outstanding chorus…. A credit to the vision of the Gilbert and Sullivan Society.”

Alexandyr Kent, Shreveport Times

“G&S’s ‘Princess Ida’ weaves comedic magic.  When the curtain went up… and the music director, Marc-André Bougie, flashed his baton no one doubted they were in for a fist-clash evening of theatre.  The musicians blended into a rich full-bodied sound that captured the audience’s attention….  As performed by a gifted ensemble of its 16-member cast, the feisty, thought-provoking book and score showcased the range of talent available to the Shreveport-Bossier community….”

Bill Goode, Bossier Press-Tribune

“Musically speaking…’Princess Ida’ offered a cast of good young singers from around the area, and the 20-piece orchestra, conducted by Marc-André Bougie, was simply the best the society has ever put together…Conductor Bougie and his orchestra were a decided plus and definite step-up.  They nicely underscored the singers, and the well-played and tuneful overture certainly set the musical tone for the show.”
