"Next was American pianist and composer Haley Kallenberg performing her own music, which is quite jazzy, with very cool, nicely original musicality. She seems to really enjoy playing and this gives the audience permission to enjoy her performance. Not all performers do this, so it was lovely to see. She really has something to say, with a strong sound and feel for the keyboard. I especially like her sense of harmony and development of her ideas. Fine work that was nicely received by the audience.” — Sound Word Sight, The Winners of the Ibla Grand Prize International Music Competition — Carnegie Hall, New York.

“Avec elle aussi, dès les premières mesures, le piano est brusquement hanté de féerie comme tous les gestes de la jeune interprète qui dodeline de la tête et emboîte le pas aux rythmes et cadences qui pleuvent comme des cordes, avec des moments de rêverie et de netteté d'un toucher chargé de tendresse. Éclats jazzy favorisés, mais aussi des tonalités américaines à la Joplin, Barber et Menotti. Avec, en figure de proue, des accords riches sur une base fragile de notes aigrelettes." — L’Orient-Le Jour
