Robert Manno and Magdalena Golczewski founded the Windham Chamber Music Festival fifteen seasons ago and in those years have brought classical music to the Catskills as splendidly as any venue in the region, from Tanglewood to the Bard Summer Festival.
—John Paul Keeler, Hudson-Catskill Newspapers, 2012

They [Robert Manno and Magdalena Golczewski] have single-handedly put together a top-caliber music festival for this town, and the response has been phenomenal.
—Jim Wooten, Director of Yamaha Artist Services, 2003

Once in a lifetime something wonderful happens to a small community: the right people with a bright idea fall in with a new physical opportunity and voila! And that is what is happening to Windham. The town is witnessing the birth of an amazing new music festival, and it's the talk of the town. It's like the beginnings of Tanglewood. The townspeople are excited, the summer visitors are ecstatic, the restaurant owners, hotel keepers, and merchants are overwhelmed at the influx of new faces. Ten years from now, when we look back, we'll be able to say we were there when it all happened.
The Mountain Eagle, 1999
