Reviews of Jonathan Beyer include:
“The audience found its treat in a young, fresh-faced baritone named Jonathan Beyer. The 27-year-old appeared natural, plowing through an ambitious program. Beyer’s voice is big and virile. He produced tones evenly throughout the registers, showing no strain when pushing high and loud.” -- The Washington Post
“Baritone Jonathan Beyer (Papageno) was the substantial voice that carried the piece. He brought proportion and context to difficult writing and maturity to his stagecraft. His Papageno was a model of articulation, but also of nuanced singing. An able comedian, he was musically arresting and brightly funny, his timing in both boosting the opera’s impact.” – Broad Street Review, Philadelphia
There is no charge for the concert, which is underwritten by the generosity of the Phoenixville Community Health Foundation.
