Exitoso debut de Nicole Peña-Comas con la Sinfónica
2014-09-28 Webpage, Santo Domingo
""Nicole interpretó el  Concierto No. 1 en re menor, para violonchelo y orquesta, de Édouard Lalo, cuyos tres movimientos abordó con pasión y entrega, recibiendo cálidos aplausos y elogiosos comentarios."

"A seguidas entró al escenario Nicole, serena y sonriente, demostrando con su interpretación su absoluto dominio sobre el violonchelo, considerado tradicionalmente como uno de los instrumentos de cuerda que más se parece a la voz humana. Nicole se desenvolvió libremente en su conversación con la orquesta a través de los tres movimientos, desde el Preludio, pasando por el Intermezzo, hasta el Finale."
