Paula Citron, Opera Canada

“An artist of great artistic range, Barber delivers these songs idiomatically and fearlessly, without operatic artifice, her attention to textual nuance exemplary.”

“Kimberly Barber gave me the tools to access my artistic voice, the courage to be larger than life as a performer and helped lay the foundation for a consistent and reliable singing technique that I still apply daily”
River Guard (BMus 2017, OpDip 2018)
