“I have seen firsthand, in places as diverse as Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Liberia, Costa Rica and Washington, D.C., how Raúl Goméz-Rojas captivates both performing musicians and audiences alike.  He is equally at home on the podium as he is performing chamber music on the violin with members of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra… Raúl’s positive attitude and enthusiasm make him a joy to be with.”  

Craig Mumm - Associate Principal Viola, the MET Orchestra, New York

 

“In my opinion the necessary ingredients for success are: talent, strong ambition and hard, very hard work, combined with a pleasant personality. Mr. Raul Gomez-Rojas has them.”  

Leon Spierer, 1st. Concertmaster ( i.R.), Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra

 

“I have known Raúl through our work together at YOA. At first meeting, he immediately impressed me with his enthusiasm, integrity, calm yet strong leadership skills, trustworthy and reliable personality but most importantly his tremendous knowledge and love for music. Raul is an enormously accomplished musician and a highly gifted conductor. His ability to inspire children and young adults to make music to the best of their ability is astonishing.

He is a very rare breed indeed.”

Dominic Seldis - Principal Double Bass, 

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Amsterdam

 

"Raúl Gómez-Rojas’ visit with the Orquesta de la Universidad Autónoma de Aguascalientes gave us a very clear perspective of the work of [featured composer] José Pablo Moncayo. His strict yet edifying work with the students yielded

truly professional results.”

Julio Vázquez Valls, Director of Music Deparment and Conductor at UAA

 

“Through the complex rhythmic passages he was not only extremely clear but led the ensemble with a sure musical understanding. His rehearsal technique was economical and organized.  It was a real joy working with him.”

James Alexander, Director of Strings Program, Nicholls State University


“Mississippi was indeed most fortunate to have the conducting brilliance of Raúl Gómez-Rojas.  Upon his arrival on the first day of the Premier Orchestral Institute, the student musicians were very responsive to his enthusiastic and patient style. He was able to motivate them to excel to their absolute best and the level of mastery of the music he was able to garner from them after just one week was incredible.”

Yoluanda Brown, Mississippi Youth Symphony Orchestra
