Handel Messiah

"But more than any other “Messiah” I took in this month, the chorus here felt like a true counterpart to the orchestra — a manifestation of divine symmetry."  - The Washington Post

Britten War Requiem

"It was the most moving choral singing I have heard in a ­quarter-century’s residence in Washington."  –The Washington Post

Brahms Naenie

"Tucker drew out the unaccompanied sound of the large chorus at the momentous phrase toward the end…weaving voices carefully back together with instrumental lines.  Brahms marked the final word of those lines…with a couple [of] surprise modulations, handled with subtlety by Tucker and his musicians"  - Washington Classical Review

Orff  Carmina Burana

"Immensely to the society’s credit, there was not a whiff of routine about Sunday’s performance, which was so vivid and lively that the piece, [...] emerged in fresh color."  –The Washington Post

Schmitt Psalm 47

  "Tucker conducted as if nobody knew he was there, but they couldn’t have done it without him"   - Broadway World

Geter An African American Requiem

  "…the chorus quickly tightened into a bright, clear column of sound, animated with ample humanity..."  –The Washington Post

Verdi Requiem

"The Cornell University Chorus (women) and Glee Club (men) proved to be as good an ensemble of singers as Mechetti could have possibly hoped for."  –The Post-Standard

Cornell Glee Club Tour

"This was the work of a conductor who knows his medium well: Scott Tucker, a professor and choral director at Cornell. The ease and smoothness of the delivery, the unity in the expressive shaping of phrases, the musical flow — all reflected Tucker’s sound musicianship and obvious rapport with his singers"  - San Francisco Classical Voice
