Carlaw Ogston Music Prize (2014)

"The tenor Joshua Baxter’s exquisitely sung Cobbler", Keith Potter, Opera Magazine June 2017 (2017)

"As Lensky, Onegin’s best and seemingly only friend whom he ends up killing in a duel, Josh Baxter could not have been bettered either for his glorious tenor singing especially in his second act aria and for his realistic acting." Alan Cooper- University of Aberdeen (2013)

"For singing alone, Josh Baxter as Tamino was not far behind – and his role was far more extensive. His fabulous tenor tones never faltered for a moment, illuminating the entire production." Alan Cooper- University of Aberdeen (2012)

"Carmen was nicely matched in her performance by that of Don Jose. Josh Baxter is a genuine operatic tenor with I reckon a remarkable future ahead of him. Somebody told me he is only nineteen, but what a voice! La fleur que tu m’avais jetée was gloriously sung." Alan Cooper- University of Aberdeen (2011)
