“I have performed with Alan Goldspiel on two separate occasions, with two different works, and both times was impressed with his professionalism. Combining artistic and administrative duties is not an easy task, and to excel in both, as soloist and as concert manager, Alan has met this formidable task and come through wonderfully on all accounts.”

AvatarTommy Usrey, Executive Director, Northeast Louisiana Arts Council

“I have observed Dr. Goldspiel interacting with both the student and adult populations and have been impressed with his ability to tailor his informances to his audience in such a wide variety of venues. He has earned the respect of the boards and administrators of organizations in our local communities and is representative of the partnership that should exist between members of a University faculty and the host community.”

AvatarDr. Dmitri Buzarovski, Director, Institute for Research and Archiving of Music, Skopje, Macedonia

“I asked him to come perform two solo recitals in Macedonia. One performance here at our University, Cyril and Methodius, in Skopje and another concert at the Struga Autumn Music. His performances were well received with many favorable comments. In Skopje we even had the good fortune to have members of the American Consulate attend. Dr. Goldspiel’s performances were enjoyable and a credit to his talent.”
