John Malveaux of tells AfriClassical:

Gordon Getty Concerts series presented Metropolitan Opera Artists Saturday, April 16, 2011. The Concert complimented the exhibition Spirit of an Age: Drawings from the Germanic World, 1770-1900. The all-German program included African American clarinetist Anthony McGill and bass baritone Terry Cook with guest pianist.

“Anthony McGill is a master musician who performed for President Obama's inauguration. He was talkative and visually expressive while performing. Terry Cook never spoke but sang with detailed gestures and a magnificent voice. The sold out audience was captured and expressed great appreciation.”
