“The central lovers received excellent performances — impassioned yet beautifully articulated musically and textually  — from Andrew Garland (Prior Walter) and Aaron Blake (Louis Ironson).  Garland, in fine shape physically, is a skilled, specific actor. His baritone radiated healthy security.” — David Shengold, Classical Voice North America

“The afternoon’s other showstopper was Tom Cipullo’s superbly crafted “America 1968,” given a riveting performance by baritone Andrew Garland, with Donna Loewy at the piano. Garland’s expressive, burnished voice was deal for Robert Hayden’s texts, as he balanced moments of searing power, poignancy and humor.” — Janelle Gelfand, Cincinnati Enquirer, April 8, 2017
