“His performance was mesmerizing as he demonstrated his great vocal control, which allowed him to fully explore the emotional gamut of the piece.
His lyric tenor voice was poignantly emotional, which allowed the orchestra to run the full gamut from overwhelming power to amazingly quiet sensitivity.
This excitement spilled over into the introduction of guest artist Justin John Moniz and his dramatic performance of ‘Every Valley Shall Be Excited’ from ‘Messiah’ by George Frideric Handel. His voice was clear, bright and strong, easily heard over the appropriate Baroque articulation of Philharmonic musicians.”
