“Alto Carola Emrich-Fisher imbued ... with a mahogany timbre and a supple translucence that paired delightfully with Everson’s considerable trumpet.” ~ The Boston Musical Intelligencer (2015)
“Alto Carola Emrich-Fisher sang “Ach, es bleibt in meiner Liebe” with a creamy tone, ...” ~ Boston Classical Review (2015)
Bach and Ruehr with Cantata Singers: “... communicated more fragile faith, especially in the aspirational dance between Emrich-Fisher and Terry Everson’s stratospherically high, delicate trumpet obbligato.” ~ The Boston Globe (2015)
Schumann’s Vocal Chamber Music with Libella Quartet: “Particularly moving was one duet, “Liebesgram,” sung by Lynch and Emrich-Fisher (...) Emrich-Fisher, ... excelled herself here.” ~ The Boston Musical Intelligencer (2011)
