“Edward Atkinson is a complete musician.  In addition to his depth and breadth of academic, musical knowledge, he has an unusual amount of practical performance and experience for his age.

Janet Jarriel – President, JEJ Classical Artists Management

“I have had the pleasure to work with Edward as Artistic Director with Lawrence Opera Works in the summer of 2012. I can say that it was refreshing to work with an individual that came with so much enthusiasm and eager to work. Not only does he have a passion for the art form, but is also able to motivate others to feel this passion and can conduct others in any scale of musical work.”

Hugo Vera – Principal Artist, The Metropolitan Opera, & Artistic Director, Lawrence Opera Works

In the 25 years that I’ve taken private lessons as a student, graduate student, and eventually professional musician, I’ve never met anyone who has helped me grow in such a brief amount of time as Edward.  Edward is not only an incredible singer, but an incredibly knowledgeable and aware singer, with a great voice, but an even greater understanding of the craft and technique of singing and performing well”

Travis Jeffords – Music Director
