"Gabrielle Haigh’s soprano is ideally

cast in the role of Benjamin."

Gramophone Magazine 2019

 

"Soprano Gabrielle Haigh... successfully conveyed the youth's open-hearted innocence."

Newsletter of The American Handel Society 2017

 

“For her single, airborne aria, an Angel (the soprano Gabrielle Haigh, in fine filigreed voice) hovered above the other singers in a high pulpit.”

San Francisco Classical Voice, December 2016

 

“Gabrielle Haigh was a pure-voiced Angel.”

Mercury News, December 2016

 

“Gabrielle's voice was exquisite,

nuanced and sensitive.  She conveyed

the emotional and thematic lines of the piece perfectly.  Some singers have a naturally

beautiful voice, some are naturally musical, and some have a sound foundation of training; she is among the lucky few who have all three.”

Tuesday Musical Club, September, 2015

 

Gabrielle Haigh: “Best Female Performance”

(Julia Jellicoe in The Grand Duke)

      International Gilbert Sullivan Festival, UNIFest 2015

 

“Soloist Gabrielle Haigh sang with unfailing sensitivity.”

  ArtsNash Music Review: Clare College Choir, 2014 

 

“Gabrielle Haigh… as Carlotta… had the audience giggling throughout.”

   The Varsity (Cambridge, U.K.), 2014

 

“The production really takes off with the first solo from Gabrielle Haigh as Mabel, singing Poor Wand’ring One; her sheer range and vocal control hold the audience breathless.”

                         The Varsity (Cambridge, U.K.), 2014

 

“This is followed by Roderick Williams O Adonai,

et Dux domus Israel… It opens with a haunting soprano solo (Gabrielle Haigh), full of awkward

but evocative intervals.”

Planet Hugill, Harmonia Mundi

“Veni Emmanuel” CD Review, 2014

 

The most remarkable and interesting

work was performed early in the program, Roderick Williams’ O Adonai et Dux domus Israel. A solo very high soprano sings jagged chant-like phrases that are echoed by the sopranos. The stratospheric soprano soloist was Cleveland native Gabrielle Haigh; it was a triumph for the performers.

                    BachTrack, Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, impresses with music for Advent, 2013

 

“The most startling, and in many ways the most satisfying, was an ambitious piece by English baritone Roderick Williams… For this difficult work, …the sopranos sang from above in the organ loft (including a fine solo by Cleveland native and choir member Gabrielle Haigh). … It was a virtuoso performance that showed the skill and courage of these young singers at their best.”

        ClevelandClassical.com: Choir of Clare College, 2013

 

“Cleveland native Gabrielle Haigh sings a

beautiful, stratospheric solo in Roderick Williams’s

O Adonai, et Dux domus Israel.
