Reviews & Press

Opera Philadelphia - Venables - Denis and Katya - Katya

Pinchgut Opera - Hasse - Artaserse - Semira

The mezzo role of Semira was sung by another local, Emily Edmonds, surely a star in the making, singing with golden tone and convincing expressivity.

Emily Edmonds sings Semira with smooth open and attractively poised sound.
