“…it was a treat to hear a remarkable singer like Hopkins, fast becoming a real favourite of mine, in songs by Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, and Mendelssohn. Hopkins brings all his operatic swagger and real flair for communication to the recital platform: his expressive range is beautifully calibrated, and he’s capable of great emotional depth. His Schubert and Schumann were particularly moving.”  The Vancouver Sun, David Gordon Duke, March 23, 2013.
