News about the McDuffie Center

Praise from the Wall Street Journal on the new Mills-McDuffie CD:

“The disc is a calling card for the McDuffie Center for Strings, Mr. McDuffie’s training institute at the Townsend School of Music at Mercer University in Macon, Ga. Both the Mills and one of the two companion works, Philip Glass’s Symphony No. 3 (1995), are given impeccably polished, shapely readings by the MCS Ensemble, led by Ward Stare, the music director of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. Between the orchestral works, Mr. McDuffie and the pianist Elizabeth Pridgen collaborate on an alternately humorous and soulful account of John Adams’s Road Movies (1995).” — Allan Kozinn, The Wall Street Journal (10/24/2016)
