Cyprus Opera Studio Benefit Recital, Jeffrey B. Brown
“Brittany was superb tonight performing for an intimate group of friends, supporters, and now fans! This beautiful, bubbly, lady is destined to take the operatic stage with grace-filled shyness and a voice as big and moving as heaven itself.” - Jeffrey B. Bowen
Iolanthe, News & Record
“The Queen of the Fairies (Brittany Griffin) was appropriately regal, although she confesses to her court that she, too, is attracted to mortal men. Her rich voice demanded appropriate attention.” - News & Records
Iolanthe, Voix des Arts
“Brittany Griffin brought the otherworldly authority of the Sorceress in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas to the Queen's magisterial pronouncements.” - Voix des Arts
Gloria in excelsis Deo, Go Triad
“Bach’s Gloria in excelsis Deo (“Glory to God in the Highest” — BWV 191) followed intermission...This three-movement work begins and ends joyously (with trumpets) and features a lovely duet in the middle. Saturday night’s fine soloists included Brittany Griffin.” - Go Triad
