"Bermudez’s dark mezzo added some beautiful color to the “Benedictus” and the “Agnus Dei,” where in her solo work she demonstrated an admirable smoothness of line and sensitivity."

-Greg Stepanich, Palm Beach Arts Paper

(Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass, Master Chorale of South Florida)

"The role of Dido, Queen of Carthage, went to mezzo-soprano Misty Leah Bermudez, a Seraphic Fire veteran whose royal status was indicated by her glittering jewelry and regal manner. Bermudez gave an affecting performance of the early aria Ah, Belinda, taking advantage of the intimate space of the church to allow for subtlety of vocal expression. In the famous concluding aria When I am Laid in Earth, as the despairing queen bids goodbye to the world, Bermudez gave a performance that was more defiant and less despondent than most, emotional but with the emotions of a queen."
