“The four soloists were also nearly perfect. Soprano Bethany Hörst has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. In a world filled with too many screechy sopranos, Hörst’s vocals are rich and lush, terms usually more appropriate to mezzos, but there is no other way of describing how she is able to fatten each high note.”

Kitchener-Waterloo Record, December 2011


“Hörst was delightful in the upper register, singing with a bright, round and supple presentation.”

Kitchener-Waterloo Record, September 2010


“Hörst provided a standout performance as the wavering Fiordiligi, her voice deeply warm and lush, filling the room with a rich and beautiful sound. Her delivery in the aria Come Scoglio was golden-hued, emoting conviction and strength.”

Kitchener-Waterloo Record, October 2009


“Hörst is in her element…in Mozart.”

Kitchener-Waterloo Record, March 2009


“Hörst is vocally talented, but it is her professionalism, demeanour and stage presence that reveal her potential for operatic success.”

Ontario Arts Review, May 2009


“Hörst’s voice…soars to the rafters.  The Lord Nelson Mass requires “fireworks” from the soprano, and these she can deliver.”
