“A new comet streaked into view…with the OIC debut of Montreal-based baritone Joshua Hopkins. As Pollux, he would seem to have every resource needed for success, with a thickly attractive vibrato and imposing ruggedness that are just part of his full-bodied, darkly coloured tonal armoury.”
The Toronto Star, Geoff Chapman, February 10, 2003.

“The Pollux was Joshua Hopkins, an outstanding young baritone with a virile, vigorous yet velvety sound and an immediately evident dramatic authority.”
The Globe and Mail, Ken Winters, February 10, 2003.
