-Dr. Stephen Pu, Artistic Director,
Hollywood Master Chorale
"Another plus is a setting of Sim Shalom, composed by Michelle Green Willner. This setting is one that I found had artistic merit as well as commercial possibility."
-Jewish Post, Indianapolis, Marion County

“The piece is magnificent! It's a movie! It evoked so many images in my mind, like an 1940s Cecil B. deMille biblical extravaganza.
I loved it. I hope it has a rich future and will be performed again in many places!”
-Corinne Joy Brown, Author
"A pleasure to listen to your music. Your work has a natural quality, beautifully shaping phrases with an organic structure. Your Holocaust themed works are powerful and moving."
