Critical Acclaim: Kathleen Battle
"...dazzled the Kennedy Center"
Washington Post

-Anne Midgette, Jan 29, 2018

"To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from Kathleen Battle’s outing Sunday evening at the Kennedy Center...How wrong I was."

"Battle took the stage, tastefully and not ostentatiously dressed, and let fly with 'Lord, How Come Me Here' — adorned with some of the same floating, gorgeous high notes I remembered from her over two decades ago."

"...the voice as a whole still had the purity and beauty that has always characterized it, and she performed with flair and class — and sometimes without any accompaniment at all."

"It all added up to a long, packed and thoroughly enjoyable evening; the capacity audience in the Concert Hall certainly got its money’s worth. Rather than witnessing a memorial to a soprano’s storied past, we got something vital and compelling and very much in the present; and I came away with new respect and admiration for Battle."
