West Bay Opera—Don Giovanni, 2012
"Credit Singher—who enforced brisk tempos, drew dynamic playing from the orchestra, and supported his youthful singers at every turn—with the lion's share of the evening's success. There was nothing lightweight about the orchestra under Singher... Singher understands that Don Giovanni requires propulsive drive, firm tempos and keen dramatic tension, and he delivered on all counts. The results were buoyant and unflaggingly engaging."
San Francisco Classical Voice
"The orchestra members under Michel Singher—in tireless brilliance throughout the opera—outdid themselves in this scene, their speedy sixteenth notes emerged from the orchestra pit like the laughing flames from hell. Their small number works in Mozart—they sounded more like chamber music than an orchestral accompaniment, which is wonderful. From overture to finale, Singher took brisk tempos, clocking in at under 2.5 hours."
San Jose Classical Music Examiner
Roméo et Juliette
"The Colorado Symphony plays like a dream for conductor Michel Singher, and the fight scene and 'O jour de deuil' chorus in Act 3 are superb."
The Denver Post
"From beginning to end, he conducts this astonishing music in the right way, with a passion that's always tempered by refinement and the highest standards of musical execution."
Arizona Daily Star, Phoenix
"Singher cultivated a vibrant transparency in the orchestra and coaxed first-rate singing from the cast."
Arizona Republic, Phoenix
Un ballo in maschera
"The full-bodied orchestra, with its large string section, was in fine form Saturday night under the baton of Maestro Michel Singher, giving Verdi's orchestrations the necessary robustness without ever overpowering the voices."
The Anchorage Press
"We could feel a new, fresh wind blowing through the score, fanning blazes of passion as well as purer emotions, with exceptional sweep."
't Pallieterke, Antwerp
The Merry Widow
"The orchestra, conducted with sureness and lightness by Michel Singher, imbued Franz Lehar's famous melodies with the bubbling vivacity or the enveloping languor one would ideally expect."
Le Soir, Brussels
Le Rossignol (Stravinsky)
"From the loudest fortissimo to the softest pianissimo, everything jelled perfectly."
Oper und Konzert, Munich
"Conductor Michel Singher had everything firmly in hand and made splendid music."
