South Florida Classical Review

"The Mahler songs were rich and lyrical, but it was mezzo-soprano Kara Dugan's velvety voice that most vividly caught my ear."

Boston Arts Diary

"All of the other vocal soloists were more than up to their several challenges, in particular mezzo-soprano Kara Dugan, whose burnished tone was a good match to her many prominent moments, both in duet and as a soloist."

John Ehrilch

The Boston Musical Intelligencer

Mezzo soprano Kara Dugan was Cherubino in "Figaro," gracefully singing the sweetly seductive "Voi Che Sapete."

"Kara.....who can easily flip into a jazz singer's croon, proved her mastery of style and languages, and gave expressive, nuanced interpretations of Henry Purcell's Baroque "If music be the food of love," German Lieder, French chansons, contemporary opera and jazz standards."
