Notes & Reviews:

Composer Emily Doolittle's music, including that on CCR's 'all spring' release, has been described as "eloquent and effective" (The Whole Note), "masterful" (Musical Toronto). Her oft-commissioned works have been performed across North America and Europe. Hailed for daring and intelligent programming, uncompromising artistry and spirited performances, the Seattle Chamber Players have been passionately dedicated to introducing high-quality contemporary chamber music to audiences worldwide since 1989, presenting more than 100 commissions and premieres in that time.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Emily Doolittle's music is pleasant, approachable, and mostly simple. Melodies tend to be short and sweet, harmonies are largely tonal, and instrumentation is traditional.
