“...Greg Zelek and Thomas Mesa, two Juilliard buddies, put on the most enjoyable concert I have ever encountered”

"Tommy is a world-renowned performer and educator, having appeared in concert for places from Carnegie Hall to the Supreme Court of the United States, and his playing has been described as having a musical intensity that is commanding in every detail…”

"The concert's most striking moment came when Mesa accompanied his own voice for a haunting, wordless melody."
