"My Song cycle of poems by Emily Dickinson, The Amherst Chronicles, received its premiere yesterday by @NinaKSoprano and @crossland_neil and they did an amazing job! I'm very fortunate to work with such great musicians and advocates of #NewMusic." Anthony Esland about Nina's and Neil's performance of the premiere of the Amherst Chronicles, September 2019. (2019)

“Nina Kopparhed [was] wonderful…Brilliantly acted” Sally Knipe, Londontheatre1.com, about TimeZone Theatre’s “A Night in Vienna” May 2017 (2017)

There was a magical clarity of interwoven lines, supporting and commenting upon your beautifully nuanced and well-characterized singing. This was an ensemble that clearly loved the music, enjoyed playing together and captured the audience under its spell. The quality of the music-making was compelling as we became increasingly aware of fusion of subtly changing colours and dynamics of independent parts. And on top of this was your gift of using voice, facial expression and discreet body language to convey the changing emotions and moods the songs demanded. The music came alive and I, for one, heard them in a new light. I have never heard a better performance of the Shepherd on the Rock, live or on disc. ...I have had exceptional feedback from members of last night’s audience, all of them overwhelmed by the friendly and informative atmosphere created, and the wonderful music they heard." Alan Lovell, Promoter, Moffat Music Society. Email reproduced with permission (2013)
