Mezzo-soprano Laurie Rubin has received high praise from The New York Times chief classical music critic
Anthony Tommasini, who wrote that she possesses "compelling artistry," "communicative power," and that
her voice displays "earthy, rich, and poignant qualities." Los Angeles Times special critic Josef Woodard has
lauded Rubin’s "charismatic, multi-textured performance," stating that Laurie Rubin " seems to have an
especially acute intuition about the power and subtleties of sound and she was a compelling force at the
center of the music. Her outstanding artistry was showcased recently at the AT&T Center Theater in Los
Angeles, where LA Times critic Mark Swed described her as "a young mezzo-soprano whose voice is darkly
complex and mysteriously soulful and who adds intense emphasis to every word of text."
