Of Handel's Messiah

Of Mahler's Symphony No. 4

"When Emily Truckenbrod sings, the angels sigh with envy. Her voice has the sweet clarity of a songbird … it was a pleasure to hear her dulcet voice again." ~ The Dispatch and The Rock Island Argus


Of Donizetti’s D’Elisir D’Amore

“Soprano Emily Truckenbrod also acquitted herself ably as Adina, singing the bel canto style with robust energy for so tiny a performer. She appeared doll-like next to the towering Klein, but their onstage chemistry delighted the audience and carried the story along nicely.” ~ The Wichita Eagle


Of Beethoven’s Mass in C


“Truckenbrod's impressive soprano had little trouble cutting through the orchestral texture.” ~ The Oklahoman

Vance George, San Francisco Symphony Chorus

"Ms. Truckenbrod has a clear, beautiful, lyric voice that is particularly wonderful in singing Bach.  She is a consummate musician who understands style, articulation, and musical expression.  Our work together on the Bach (B mi Mass) was a delight and brings back memories of music-making of the highest quality"


Of Mendelssohn’s Lobgesang

"The vocal soloists were wonderful. Soprano Emily Truckenbrod sang with a clear, pretty, penetrating tone."  ~ The Wichita Eagle


Of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro

"Singing the role of Susanna, Emily Truckenbrod gave an impressive performance.  Her crystal clear diction and seemingly effortless technique helped deliver the plot. ~ The Daily Iowan

“Soprano Emily Truckenbrod was appealing in the title role.” ~ St. Louis Dispatch

“The score by Dunphy requires the soprano to perform across a very wide range, and she does so with aplomb.” ~ Broadway World


Of a Solo Recital

"Truckenbrod has a clear, bell-like voice which she uses with warmth and flexibility and the right blend of feeling and style. She is always in complete control, has perfect diction, and obviously enjoys singing. In fact, that night at the Tarble Arts Center, she was positively radiant. Dominick Argento has called the voice "our representation of humanity."  He must have had Truckenbrod in mind." ~ Carl Leibovitz, Reviewer-at-Large for the Times-Courier (Charleston, Illinois)
