"I absolutely loved her music," said management senior Mona Manoussifar. "I really admire how she turns the simplest concepts, like her fear of cockroaches, into amazing music that grabs your attention, teases you and makes you thoroughly enjoy every minute of it."

"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."

"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."

Haley roda o mundo tocando suas próprias composições, mescladas a grandes compositores mundiais. Hoje ensina e se apresenta em Dubai, nos Emirados Árabes, onde mora."

"I was completely blown away by Haley Kallenberg's performance, her free-wheeling, experimental, improvisational spontaneous composition is very compelling. She plays as if the instrument were an extension of her body, closing her eyes and rocking back and forth as she variously strikes or softly strokes the keys. The pieces she played were charged with emotion and sometimes humour, and even when four of the keys snapped off during a stirring piece entitled Bombing Raid she carried on, taking it in her stride, the audience loving her all the more for it."
