“Soprano Erin Hannon Gives Outstanding Recital”
“Wearing a stunning black gown with a red-sequined bodice, she sang with poise, elegance and insight.”

“Sings Duparc’s Chanson Triste with such a lushly romantic flow of notes that it is like being bathed in a stream of caresses.”

“I am still astonished by the stunning performance she gave to conclude her senior recital, Samuel Barber (1910 -1981) Knoxville: Summer of 1915. She sings with a gentle deliciousness that is dramatic but in an easy way. She finds the exact weight for each word and each phrase to bring us the meaning inherent in Agee’s text and Barber’s setting. It all seems as natural as speech and the fine piano work supports her and dances on its own in the interludes.”

“As Don Giovanni’s former lover Donna Elvira, soprano Erin Hannon sang with force and intelligence.”

– The Boston Globe

“Erin Hannon brought an air of poise and dignity to the role. Her strong voice gave her a commanding presence and, as a character, she was almost as tenacious as Don Giovanni, himself.

—The most memorable aria of the night was Hannon’s Mi tradi quell’alma ingrata. Not only did Hannon sing it with outstanding charisma and inflection, but it was a break in Elvira’s feisty façade that gave the character depth.”
