On MIATp’s recital at Boston Sculptors Gallery, August 2018:

“[Megan Ihnen & Alan Theisen present...] deserves a standing ovation for their ability to connect with their audience and educate the public about the possibilities and diversity of what is new concert music today.”

"Ihnen and Theisen clearly share a passion for performing composers’ works, have a special talent for making personal connections with attendees, and are particularly gifted at their craft."

— Anne Goldberg-Baldwin, I Care If You Listen

On MIATp’s collaboration with Andrew Rodriguez, Oil Islands:

“…a certified banger.”

Oil Islands is intoxicating. Voice, saxophone, and electronics mesh art song with synth pop, blurring the lines of genre or perhaps shrugging off those confines entirely. Particularly captivating is the musical explosion accompanying ‘At night the barges sit on the surface:’ Ihnen’s powerful voice, supported by synthesizer, bursts with heightened drama and syllabic art song sensibility. Then, the piece becomes a synth pop power ballad – saxophone and synthesizer even enter a full-blown jam session at one point…”
