“Andrew Garland’s Papageno was endlessly amusing as a regular guy who wished he could catch a wife as easily as he caught birds, and who would evidently rather have been down the street at the Red Sox game than here amid thunderclaps, scary pursuers, and trials by fire. The singer’s bluff baritone showed an unexpectedly lyrical side in the philosophical duet with Pamina [Leah Partrige]” – See more at: http://bostonclassicalreview.com/2016/04/boston-baroques-magic-flute-delivers-mozart-with-bells-on/#sthash.nYr5zO6h.dpuf

“Stylistically exemplary, with a seemingly instinctive grasp of Mozart’s frequent infusion of opera seria into opera buffa. ”
“It was great fun to watch the baritone.” “Hilarious.”
“Suave and graceful singing.”
“To his credit, the singer chose the less easy route of nuance.” —Boston Music Intelligencer, January 2, 2015

“Andrew Garland was outstanding. Physically, he was ideal for the role (and for his abbreviated costume), not only moving swiftly as Jove’s messenger should but expressing great tenderness. And he sang extremely well. His voice is rich and surprisingly flexible, including a remarkably good trill.” — Joe Law, Opera News, October 2014

“Garland’s voice is ringing and noble, and was perfect for the “Songs of Travel,” where he is called upon to inhabit Stevenson’s alternately stoic and wistful words. Garland sang in a rapt manner, with sharply defined diction, which was especially effective in “The Infinite Shining Heavens,” where one almost saw the night sky and its myriad points of light as Garland sang of them…Garland was entirely operatic, stretching his powerful voice into strange shapes as he described the birth of the wandering mariner Cifar, and brought to vivid life a metaphorical storm at sea.” — Cleveland.com, May 23, 2014

“If one wants to encounter a first-rank authentic baritone, look no further than Andrew Garland. Here is a young singer who has it all: a distinctively beautiful voice, flawless technique, exceptional musicality, and superb communicative skills. He is also an intelligent and articulate young man with the chiseled good looks of a bodybuilder and athlete. Quite simply, there is no other up and coming classical singer who is a more impressive complete package or more deserving of a major career.” —Gregory Berg, NATS Journal, Jan/Feb 2014

“Selig’s melting soprano and Garland’s firm baritone fusing, in a single song of longing, their respective wishes for a soul-mate was an early moment of perfection that continued to expand throughout the performance.”  — Art Scope Magazine, October 7, 2013
