Clea Huston was outstanding in the Verdi Requiem.  Her mezzo voice was rich and beautiful as she expressed the dramatic subtlety of the vocal line.  She is a true artist, a very passionate and intelligent performer."

Clea demonstrated that she is a first-class artist - she possesses a sublime voice, refined musicianship, full knowledge of the repertoire and great professionalism.  Her performance of Saint-Saëns's 'Mon cœur s'ouvre à ta voix' was simply mesmerizing.  It is always a pleasure to make music together."

Clea Huston has been a featured soloist for Con Brio Choral Society several times, in repertoire ranging from baroque to contemporary.  She possesses a beautiful voice, with a wonderful, clean, rich tone that she carries throughout her range. Audiences love her.  We have paired her with a soprano who has a large voice (to say the least) and full orchestra: Clea’s mezzo line comes through clearly and powerfully.  She also excels in ensemble work, blending well with other soloists and feeling the music together with the other soloists (and with the director).  Clea is thoroughly professional (responds to requests for publicity and bio materials, arrives on time, knows the music, participates eagerly), makes our chorus feel good about what we are doing, and is a delight to be around.  In short, great voice, thoroughly professional, a pleasure to work with.”

Clea Huston is a truly lovely artist with a beautiful, warm mezzo-soprano voice that has a burnished timbre and an impressive range.  Mrs. Huston is a wonderful musician with a winning stage presence and is an admirable colleague.  She is at home in a variety of repertoire including the more spinto and dramatic operatic heroines, all styles of oratorio, and music theater roles.  She is equally at home on the operatic stage and in the concert arena."
