"...the fine quartet of soloists:
soprano Kathryn Papa, mezzo-soprano Kim Lauritsen,
and tenor Timothy Culver. All brought clear, vivid vocal tone and enunciation to their roles..."

"If Saturday's performers are any indication,
the tradition of the Art Song is alive and in good voices and hands.
Any of the ten pairs of singer/pianists would have been capable of
sustaining the interest of an audience for an entire evening, though of
course there were some standouts. Mezzo-soprano Kim Lauritsen
and pianist Lee Schmitz got the audience to laugh out loud with
two irreverent songs from Jake Heggie's Of Gods and Cats, enlivened by
Lauritsen's excellent diction and droll acting."
