​Amy Nicole Broadbent     Soprano

Press

"Singing with consummate poise, limpid clarity, and faultless intonation, she took off where the dreamy introduction from cellist Doug Poplin left off. When sung like this, placid and centered in a gently undulating tempo, the Ode is a showstopper. No less impressive and in a similar vein was Broadbent’s duet with Colin St-Martin on the dulcet traverso in “The soft complaining Flute.” ...all in all this was a performance to be treasured."

"Soprano Amy Nicole Broadbent was the best of the solo quartet, all four of whom also doubled  with their colleagues in the choral pieces... in the aria “Hört, ihr Völker, Gottes Stimme”–performed without a conductor due to its light trio scoring–her plummy legato sound was matched by clarity of tone and intonation."

"...with strong playing from the consort and some colorful singing from bit players, including members of the local chorus Cathedra; Katie Baughman and Amy Broadbent almost stole the show as the maniacally laughing witches."

"Broadbent, the very picture of an ingénue, is as sharp and clear as a crystal as she soars through 'Sorry her lot.'"
