“Tula’s elegant phrasing effectively displayed the harp as a melodic instrument. The substantial cadenza, charged with vigor by Tula, resounded especially vividly in the crisp New World Center acoustic. Tula’s harp line sparkled in the catchy folk-inflected tune of the finale. Throughout the half hour work, her precision and verve were manifest.” - South Florida Classical Review of Ms. Tula’s performance of the Glière Harp Concerto (published March 26, 2018)

“Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra is a brilliant set of variations on a theme from Purcell’s incidental music to Abdelazer… the harp’s solo display turned sweeping arpeggios and glissandos into elegant miniature thematic bursts.”

"Violinists Jessica Ryou and Hye Jin Koh, violist Kip Riecken and cellist Blake-Anthony Johnson spun a sweet and warm fabric of sound, while harpist Chloe Tula elevated the texture with an ethereal accompaniment."

"The prominent harp part was expertly handled by Chloe Tula. She adeptly blended the instrument’s timbres with Mackey’s brass and mallet combinations."

"The 1945 orchestral version of Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring was the program’s lone familiar offering and displayed the New World players at their best. Gaffigan captured the authentic Copland Americana sound. Rhythms were crisp and the slow sections channeled the inherent nostalgia without turning maudlin. Unison strings played with striking clarity in the barn dance like episode. Clarinet and oboe solos launched the Shaker melody “Simple Gifts” and the full orchestral statement of the familiar tune was stirring. Gaffigan kept the tempo moving and fluid in the final chorale theme.  Chloe Tula’s harp emerged finely transparent at the quiet conclusion."

"Despite the work’s thick scoring (which included five horns, three trumpets, three trombones and tuba), the recurrent glissando lines of the two harps were projected with clarity."
