“Pomès has been described as a stunning performer and an excellent communicator with a gift for breathing new life into contemporary compositions.”

Ottawa Citizen

“A nationally acclaimed artist.”

London Press

“Pomès…perfectly engaging…and almost stealing the show.”

Bow Valley

“Elisabeth Pomès is a soprano with a rich voice that could, and possibly does occasionally, work in the mezzo range… She is a seasoned professional with experience in opera, concerts, recitals and radio. Sunday night performance at Carleton University… showed her to be a persuasive advocate of a broad range of modern musical styles.”

Ottawa Citizen

“Pomès handles the melodic vocal line with sensitivity.”

Deauville Press

“Pomès sang the songs with the necessary colour and sexy demeanour…”

Journal de Soisy

“Pomès was at her best in the two unaccompanied items, a wordless aria from R. Murray Schafer’s The Princess of the Stars and Luciano Berio’s Sequenza III. In both cases she succeeded brilliantly in creating self-sufficient worlds of artistic expression… and did it with considerable wit.”

Ottawa Citizen

“It is hard to describe the depth of feeling with which Pomès sang.”

The Sun, Brandon

“Besides a sound technique which facilitates a free, spinning effect that brings the lovely quality of her voice to the audience, the sense of importance she brings to the event creates an excitement in the air.”

The Underground

“Her stance is confident and her sense of communication and sensitivity to the words is never lacking.”
