Post was in full command of the orchestra throughout. His interpretation of Jean Sibelius' Symphony No. 2 was unexpectedly outstanding, a full-bodied, vigorous reading... He also extracted a crispness and clarity that we don't often get in this work.

Post's vigorous and sensual conducting gave us an interpretation that could stand its own against any comparison.

This Masterworks concert had all the best hallmarks of what Maestro Post has given to Thunder Bay – a world premiere of a new, commissioned classical piece, and enhanced TBSO performing one of the great symphonic works of the last century, and superb, focused and sensitive conducting.

Arthur Post, the conductor-magician who has mixed musical potions for the San Juan Symphony over the last 13 years, stirred a memorable brew last Sunday afternoon. That it was his farewell concert made the concoction all the more meaningful. . . . It was a gratifying, ritualistic ending for Post's long, storied and creative tenure.

Post's style is both commanding and comfortable. Clearly master of the stage, he is engaging, lively and a consummate professional of considerable talent and charm.

The Forum (Moorhead, MN)

...an interpretation that was bright and full of energy, served by the young and talented conductor Arthur Post, who got a standing ovation from the audience at the Auditorium. Post knew how to thank them appropriately, emotionally raising Casals' score after the performance in a beautiful gesture of sympathy with his audience.

La Finestra Digital (Barcelona)

With superb solo playing from musicians in all sections, extraordinarily committed performances from all, and great balance among the sections, this music making was exhilarating and soul-satisfying.  The Ann Arbor Symphony had innocence, panache, intensity, and moments of radiance that read like benedictions.

Combine a capable, well-rehearsed orchestra with the invigorating presence of a talented conductor, and the music-making will be electric. Arthur Post brought out all the best qualities of the orchestra, most notably a redoubled crispness and energy.

The Patriot News (Harrisburg, PA)

Post has a wonderfully natural feeling for this music [Mahler : Symphony #4] and more than sufficient technique to steer an orchestra through its hazards.

The Boston Globe

Post is an accomplished musician... He conducted Death and Transfiguration with confidence and authority, and the results were eminently satisfying.

Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Golden Opening (headline). New Music Director, Maestro Arthur Post, proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the TBSO made a wise decision in securing his services. Post's precision, confidence, musicality, as well as the palpable level of invigorating energy he draws from the orchestra bodes extremely well for the future.

Thunder Bay Chronicle Journal

In less than three full seasons, Post has taken the San Juan Symphony to new Heights of excellence. And it is apparent that the best is yet to come.
