Reviews

"Among soloists, Camille Ortiz is the stand-out, as innocent as she is imperious playing first a shepherdess, then a Roman warrior."

       - BBC Music Magazine, October 2018 on PBO's newly released recording

"No one contributed more to the evening’s success than soprano Camille Ortiz... Performing without a score, her face alight with smiles and expressive nuance, Ortiz deployed her vibrant tone and lush tremolo to striking effect. Even as the score exacted its demands for precision runs, leaps, and languid trills, the singer seemed at ease. Everything arrived without any sense of effort or exertion. The Alleluia glittered with light and liquid ornamentation."

       - San Francisco Classical Voice, Philharmonia Baroque, Mozart, October 2018

"...She sang with an energy, gleam and pointedness that enabled Poppea’s magnetism to shine through in the music.

       -Texas Classical Review, Ars Lyrica Houston, Agrippina, November 2018

 

"Camille Ortiz-Lafont excelled as Érigone, the object of Bacchus’s erratic desire."

       - San Francisco Classical Voice, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, 

          Le Temple de la Gloire, May 2017

 

"The lighter, more lyrical voice of Puerto Rico-born soprano Camille Ortiz-Lafont provided welcome contrast and many charming moments."

        - Seen and Heard International, PBO's Le Temple de la Gloire, May 2017

 

"Camille Ortiz-Lafont wowed with her agile trills and runs..."

        - Bachtrack on PBO's Le Temple de la Gloire, April 2017

 

"Soprano Camille Ortiz-Lafont was an alluring Érigone."

        - The Mercury News on PBO's Le Temple de la Gloire, April 2017

 

"...Camille Ortiz-Lafont, whose dark and beautiful mezzo [vocal color] lent considerable character to Act 2."

         - Lisa Hirsch's Iron Tongue of Midnight on PBO's Temple, April 2017

 

 

 

 

"Vocal standouts were the sopranos Popova, Camille Ortiz-Lafont and Rebecca Beasley."

       - Dallas News on Dallas Bach Society's Les arts florissants, October 2016

 

"Then, as if from heaven, she followed with two songs by the Spanish Catalan composer Xavier Montsalvatge from his Cinco Canciones Negras...Ms. Ortiz-Lafont favored the room with the delicious encore Del cabello más sutil by Fernando Obradors."

       - NY Concert Review on Música de Cámara's Recital, February 2014

 

"Her voice is sublime, neat...Camille sings 'Madrugada' with text by poet Luis Lloréns Torres and the music flows without the need of ever stopping; without anything to correct or redo."

       - El Diario NY, July 2013

 

"Ms. Ortiz herself provided some delightful singing..."

       - Meche Kroop for The Opera Insider on Opera Hispánica's Soneto de Amor y Muerte, NY, 2011

 

"...Ms. Ortiz showed us what a fine singer she is. She produces lovely sounds in all parts of her range...These performances were characterized by brilliant high notes, lots of vocal colors, and close attention to the meaning of the words."

       - NY Concert Review for Música de Cámara's Recital, 2009
