SawPlayer: Caroline McCaskey plays musical saw!

Reviews of Caroline’s performance with the San Francisco Symphony: Barbary Coast Concerts


“a musical saw virtuoso”

— Stephen Smoliar
San Francisco Classical Music Examiner


“Even against a lifetime spent in concert halls, tonight was a novelty and revelation. Her name is Caroline McCaskey. She and the San Francisco Symphony played the overture to Offenbach’s ‘Orpheus in the Underworld.’ The one with the can-can.

“While the well-worn work itself is the opposite of novelty, McCaskey’s fabulous solo on the musical saw was a thrilling first-time experience.”

— Janos Gereben
San Francisco Performing Arts Examiner


“We’ve also got a great musical saw virtuosa, Caroline McCaskey, who’s going to be playing some Offenbach on her musical saw.”

San Francisco Symphony on KQED
