Opera News, February 2015:  "Soprano Michelle Trainor gave one of the most thorough and satisfying performances of the evening as Isolt's loyal servant Brangain.   Trainor, an alumna of the company's Emerging Artist Program, has clearly emerged.  Musically, her voice is richer and more expressive than ever, and she in particular embodied the simultaneous passion and restraint of Martin's musical approach to the legend."

 ..."exhibited both vocal virtuosity and superb acting"...

11/5/14 - The BLO recording of Clemency is now available and the reviews are in: "Soprano Michelle Trainor as Hagar, joined by the piano of Brett Hodgdon, in this most appropriate of Schubert songs, with Trainor in fine voice, full of passion and emotion, with beautifully clear diction and moving from fierce emotion to a sudden lighter Schubertian vein with consummate ease."
