Baritone James Westman “nailed his vibrant The Trumpet shall sound” in New York Philharmonic debut
“The New York Philharmonic Magnificent Messiah…..A splendid array of soloists….baritone James Westman’s sonority opened up for the rest of the evening, he nailed his vibrant “The Trumpet Shall Sound” with a ringing, dead-of-center high A that I suspect he enjoyed as much as my smiling audience neighbours.”
