—San Francisco Chronicle

Soprano Esther Tonea and mezzo-soprano Simone McIntosh, joining forces for a luminous account of the duet “Che soave zeffiretto” from Mozart’s “Marriage of Figaro.

—San Francisco Chronicle

[Mezzo-soprano Simone] McIntosh was joined by soprano Anne-Marie MacIntosh...whose crisp, perfectly tuned parallel melodies sent little thrills of delight into all the assembled automobiles.

—San Francisco Chronicle

There were other rewards as well, including tenor Zhengyi Bai’s vivid, swaggeringly charismatic rendition of Rossini’s “La Danza,” a tenderly shaped duet from Lehár’s “Merry Widow” by soprano Elisa Sunshine and baritone Timothy Murray, and bass Stefan Egestrom’s stylish “Some Enchanted Evening” from “South Pacific.

—San Francisco Chronicle
