Following her performances this season with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, the Neue Zürcher Zeitung wrote: ‘Sharon Isbin is nearly a legend in the guitar scene. She created such a refined sound & elegant expression…As a guest of the Zurich Chamber Orchestra (ZKO) in the Tonhalle, she played with exquisite colors & poetry, the guitaristic effects & dynamic layers were gorgeous.’

She was recently profiled in The Transcendental Meditation Magazine:
