American Record Guide - Hecht

[of Schreker Chamber Symphony] “Wolynec's reading is the most extroverted and bold, with rich, intense colors, a big sound, and fine integration of the work's episodic nature.”

Arts Nash - Pitcher

[of Beethoven Symphony No. 2] “It was certainly a joy to hear a conductor take Beethoven’s metronome markings seriously. Wolynec’s tempo in the opening Allegro con brio was brisk and virtuosic. His reading of the scherzo was full of propulsion. Yet the most unforgettable moments came in the second-movement Larghetto, which shimmered from beginning to end with radiance.”

[of Mahler Symphony No. 5 Adagietto] “Gateway Conductor Gregory Wolynec took his time with this music, as if savoring the sweet fragrance of the melodies. The sound he coaxed from the players was utterly sumptuous, the playing deeply felt.”


Fanfare - Dubins

[of Chamber Symphonies] “brilliantly conceived ... these are topnotch, professional performances that match or outclass the competition ... the main credit has to go to Gregory Wolynec and his outstanding Gateway Chamber Orchestra players for their fantastic achievement. I commend this release to you with my strongest recommendation.”


Boris Allakhverdyan [Principal Clarinet - LA Philharmonic]

"Working with Gregory Wolynec and Gateway Chamber Orchestra was a truly memorable and enjoyable experience. This is a fantastic group of musicians that made the performances full of joy and precision." 

Cristina Spinei [Composer]

"Every composer should be lucky enough to work with a conductor like Gregory Wolynec. Not only does he champion the work of living composers, but he also interprets their music expertly and with enthusiasm. His artistry, dynamic programming, and community outreach makes Maestro Wolynec the consummate 21st century conductor."
