“SYMPHONY ‘TV SHOW’ GOES LIKE GANGBUSTERS…Five By Design has performed twice before in the pops concerts with the Arkansas Symphony, covering the swing era in ‘Club Swing’ and radio’s hayday in ‘Radio Days.’  Now the group is back with ‘Stay Tuned,’ a tribute to the golden age of TV, with just as much music but more elaborate staging, including some fairly complicated choreography.  The show’s world premiere Friday night with the orchestra and music director David Itkin at Little Rock’s  Robinson Center Music Hall went like gangbusters.”

- Arkansas Democrat Gazette (Eric E. Harrison) 

”Five By Design’s ‘Stay Tuned’ included both forgotten gems and timeless favorites…deft, colorful arrangements…flawless group sound…a complete visual and aural presentation…”

-The  Bellingham Herald (Casey Mullin)
