Here's what people are saying...

“With great musical dexterity Lush performs its way through an extremely extensive and very entertaining repertoire.  Their arrangements are ingenious and informed with an outside-the-box look at what a cello quartet can do.  Lush has a kind of people-pleasing musical personality that adds a sense of humor and playfulness to a solid traditional core.    
Lush is defined by its unique musical interpretations wrapped in the sensuous sound of a cello quartet.
A delightful musical tour through the centuries adding to traditional repertoire with whimsical and adventurous interpretations of the non-traditional.    
Professionally, rehearsal was a pleasure:  Lush were as responsive and easy to work with as they were talented.”

   Micky Erbe, film and television composer, leader of the Spitfire Band

“I’ve been recording for over twenty years now and few are the occasions where musicians in the booth have not only transcended themselves, but have also managed to ferry everyone in the control room along with them. Such was the experience when Lush recorded a session for my most recent album. While I had anticipated the professionalism that the quartet habitually displays in the live setting, I did not prepare myself for the depth of emotion that Lush articulated via Wendy Solomon’s incredible arrangement. It left me – as my engineer can attest – quite speechless.”

   Jason Wilson, two-time Juno nominee & Canadian Reggae Music Award    winner

"I was totally mesmerized by your performance on December 22! I know you are all individually superb cellists/musicians but together the sound of the four of you is like nothing else I have ever heard before. The lush, rich, and expressive sound of your ensemble kept us all in the audience spellbound. Your easy going dialogue with the audience really connected us to what you were playing, the arrangements cleverly showcased each of you, and the camaraderie of you four ladies working together gave all of us a sense that this was some party! Can't wait to hear you again!"
   Peggy McGuire, Concert Organizer, Mississauga Chamber Music


“Oh, I heard and saw "Lush" a few weeks ago and it was an astonishingly beautiful, and often funny, show. Don't miss!”
   Nancy White, performer, journalist

"Since first hearing Lush a number of years ago. I have been repeatedly impressed by the richness of their sound, the brilliance of their arrangements, and the virtuosity of their performance, and am proud to have been able to work with them on a number of occasions. A delightful and unique evening's entertainment!"

   George Meanwell, singer-songwriter, founding member Quartetto          Gelato

"As a connoisseur, I have been privileged to experience the masterful artistry of LUSH.  As a performing artist, I have been honoured to perform along side them.   Their arrangements, repertoire and skill are so dynamic that the listener gets lost in the performance.  Cello has always been my favourite instrument, but LUSH takes it to another level"

    Mark Masri, tenor vocalist, songwriter/entertainer
