REVIEW- A Gershwin Celebration, Long Bay Symphony, April 2017

“Soprano soloist Amanda Horton took the stage for the first of her performances, and she began with the beloved “Summertime” from Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess” dating from the middle 1930s. Her clear articulation and spot on intonation in this unaffected performance embraced the audience in the poignant emotion of the song. And, in a completely different style, she then sang “By Strauss” which as program annotators Joseph and Elizabeth Kahn point out, was Gershwin’s last song. Horton was charming as she spun out the melody, swaying in the waltz rhythm of its light hearted and appealing movie-music style.”

“Horton returned to offer “The Man I Love” and her performance once again demonstrated how expressive her lovely voice is in presenting the emotional content of a song.”
