"...the mezzo soprano Kristin Gornstein, pacing the lawn as Ramiro, whom Arminda rejects, spun lines of an uncannily silky legato that transcended the tricky acoustics of the open space." - The New York Times, On Site Opera's la finta giardiniera
“Kristin Gornstein, a fine actress with a deep, spacious sound, acted Lucretia touchingly and sang with earnest beauty, from the calm of her entrance to suspicion and alarm to the depths of depression.” – Parterre.com, Loft Opera's The Rape of Lucretia
"The premiere of Steven Mackey’s Madrigal for voice and percussion quartet proved another highlight, the clear-voiced mezzo-soprano Kristin Gornstein singing an evocative, liturgical vocal line enhanced by a colorful percussive underpinning."
