Tenor Soloist in VERDI REQUIEM

National Symphony Orchestra

“Tenor Russell Thomas blazed into the hushed choral scene in the opening of the Kyrie movement with ringing high notes. His voice was even more burnished in the soft, plangent lines of the “Ingemisco” movement, especially the touching duet with principal oboist Nicholas Stovall.”
–Charles T. Downey, Washington Classical Review

"Thomas’s “Ingemisco tamquam reus (I groan as a guilty one)” solo possessed a nice sheen and confident, bright top notes…”
–Leslie Weisman, DC Metro Theater Arts
