"Jarrett displayed firm control over every detail ... to an impressive level of precision in the musical performance"
Handel's Saul, Back Bay Chorale
"With deliberate gestures, conductor Scott Allen Jarrett led the Back Bay Chorale and orchestra in a vibrant performance. He especially brought out the fine details of this score, sculpting a smooth phrase here and punching out a deliberate forte there."
"This was a refined and impassioned reading of Saul, a treat to hear."
Verdi's Requiem, Charlotte Symphony
"...the Oratorio Singers, prepared by director Scott Allen Jarrett, have never sounded sharper or more nuanced. For the first time, their "Requiem aeternam" refrain – almost chanted in its simplicity – was as memorable as the flashier "Dies irae."
"The Oratorio Singers of Charlotte, superbly prepared by Scott Allen Jarrett, roar and whisper with conviction and vocal unity."
