"Beth Folsom is a splendid musician whom I have know for many years, and have always found her to be dependable and capable of rising to meet any challenges that were presented to her. Furthermore, she has shown herself to be one who takes the initiative in planning and developing musical projects, which have always been carried to successful conclusions. Beth has arranged several large Benefit Concerts in which some of the best musicians in the world have donated their time. Beth reflects a pure musician, one who cognitively measures at every moment the relationship between execution of musical presentation, the ensemble balance, and the effect it has on those that are in audible and visual range. She is not only a great technician on the violin, but one of the most inspired and emotional performers I have ever known"

“You put your whole heart and soul into your concert. You gave generously of your musical talents and your enthusiasm and created a program that was uplifting to all. We could not have done it without your dedicated efforts, and we are deeply grateful. Music does indeed bring people together in a spirit of peace, harmony, and understanding. It reaches beyond different backgrounds, nationalities, and beliefs, and that event reflected in a special way the universal ideals of the great peacemakers of this world. God love you"

“Not only has Beth has been a tremendous inspiration to so many musicians in the area, but she has had a great impact on audience development in San Diego, as well. Ms. Folsom is an artist of deep conviction, and she has always been able to connect with her audiences, as well as the musicians with whom she performs.She exudes that passion when she plays, and I don’t think that I’m the only one of her colleagues who has experienced that. Playing with her makes it easier to play and communicate on a more emotional level. A musician with such talent and loyalty is a rarity, which audiences should not take for granted nowadays.”

With Love and gratitude"
