Review
Symphony No. 5
for Large Symphony Orchestra
"There was no doubt that at least some in the audience Friday night found (the) premiere thrilling with Welcher receiving heartfelt cheers and a very considered standing ovation. Such a reception was deserved. Welcher's Fifth is a 21st-century symphony for Austin: urbane, expressive, filled with touches of whimsy and expansively American in its artistic references."
