 Osmin in Mozart's Abduction from the Seraglio w/ 'In Series" of Washington DC

       considerable acting skill…and he nearly steals the show.”

            Joseph McClellan


 Soloist in Mozart's Requiem w/ Washington Summer Sings

       "... and Brundage sang musically polished solos, sparkling individually. As a

       quartet they were superb. Brundage matched the upper voice’s angelic

       tones for a mesmerizing effect during the fugue-like sections.

       A powerful performance.”

            Grace Jean

                                         Across the Nation


Soloist in Verdi's Requiem w/Hudson Valley Philharmonic

            Randall Craig Fleischer - conductor 

       "Stirring performance that drew a capacity audience. In the 'Dies Irae,'         Brundage's resonant bass in the higher range trembled with fear. The         soloists also joined in poignant trio and quartet passages."

            James F. Cotter, (Poughkeepsie) Times Herald Record


Soloist in Verdi's Requiem w/Midland Symphony

           Carlton R. Woods - conductor

       "An extraordinary performance. The four vocal soloists added more             highlights to the concert. Brundage had a colorful voice that spoke               beautifully in reserved tones, particularly in the haunting repetition of         'Mors...mors'. It was a stellar evening."

            Grover B. Proctor Jr., The Saginaw News


Sparafucile in Rigoletto w/Lake Charles Symphony

            William Kushner - conductor

       "The four principal guest singers were engaging and a joy to see and             hear. Brundage lent an oily dignity to the part of the assassin, like a             smiling maitre d, serving up murder. His character's ironic humor                 achieved one of the few audible laughs in what is otherwise a rather           grim story."

            James Quick, The American Press


Monterone in Verdi’s Rigoletto w/ Chattanooga Symphony and Opera

        “Handling…with fine voice and dramatic skills...bass David                          Brundage, pivotal as the brooding Count Monterone who utters the            ominous curse.”

            Nikki Hasden, Chattanooga Times Free Press 


Commendatore in Don Giovanni w/Opera Delaware

        “David Brundage…has an extraordinary bass voice.”

            Caryl Huffaker, The Kennet Paper

       "Bass David Brundage conveyed the proper dignity and spirituality."

            Mary Johnson, The Sun in Anne Arundel


Sarastro in Mozart's Magic Flute w/ " In Series" of Washington DC

       "…David Brundage's almost subterranean "Dr." Sarastro..."

            The Washington Times 


Commendatore in Mozart's Don Giovanni w/ Toledo Opera

       "Brundage, as Il Commendatore, lived up to his stage name in all                  ways."

             Sally Vallongo, The Blade 


Simone in Gianni Schicchi w/Sylvan Opera

        "Standing out in the big cast were David Brundage as Simone..."

            Robert Baxter, (Cherry Hill, NJ) Courier-Post 


Capulet in Romeo and Juliette w/Virginia Opera

       "The cast was one of the strongest and most uniform the company               has presented. There are numerous roles that are vital to the success           of Gounod's opera. The lowest voices were in the capable hands of               Brundage as Capulet..."

            Paul Sayegh, The Virginian Pilot
