"George Strickland is an excellent musical director and brought life, pace and energy to the both the band and the singing." - From a review of "The Addams Family Musical"
"[Musical Direction was] Very good indeed. George had rehearsed his singers to a very high standard. He conducted the ensemble from the pit, and direction was tight." - From a review of "Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates"
"George conducted from the keyboard, and his direction was well disciplined. It was clear that a lot of work had gone into polishing the musical numbers and diction was clear...Chorus work was strong, and showed that George had worked well with everyone on stage." - From a review of "Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates"
"I thought the musical direction was overall very strong on this production. The orchestra sounded very tight and confident while the principal actors had no problems picking up cues and staying with the band." - From a review of "The Addams Family Musical"
"George proved to be a first rate rehearsal pianist / accompanist and brought a great deal to our rehearsal process...His playing for rehearsals was always of a high standard. George fitted in seamlessly to the culture of the company, and was well liked by the cast members he worked with. He was equally at ease working with the Musical Director or at rehearsals where the MD was absent - this is a real asset in a rehearsal pianist. As well as playing from the keyboard George showed his musicality with a number of thoughtful contributions to the rehearsal process, while never being unnecessarily imposing. We will definitely be working with George again!" - Tom Kyle, MD
