Dayton Daily News: (Review – United Through Music Concert)
“It is difficult to describe what happened last night here in this city they call the Jerusalem of Europe. Simply say it was one of the great triumphs of the human spirit. Tickets for the concert “United Through Music” went on sale only forty-eight hours before the event and were immediately sold out. The united orchestras and soloists brimmed the stage… The concert United Through Music at the National Theatre conducted by two renowned Maestros Edin Dino Zonic and Neal Gittleman proved a crowning culmination of such an astonishing week of cultural encounters.”
Maestro Zonic’s work has been recognized by His Holiness Pope John Paul II, the DalaiLama, and President Bill Clinton, among others.
