“A stunning moment in this performance was the brief Urlicht movement, featuring Metropolitan Opera mezzo sopano Jacalyn Kreitzer in an appropriately radiant performance. Miss Bower-Kreitzer measured up handsomely to any alto this listener has heard in the part, including some world-famous names. Higher praise than this I cannot muster.” Mahler’s 2nd Symphony/Cathedral Symphony Orch.

“Ms. Kreitzer’s voice, in the 4th movement of the Prokoviev “Alexander Nevsky”, was magical; it had the power to make a heartless man cry” Fresno Philharmonic, Fresno News
“If I had to choose one of the soloists to represent me before my maker, it would be Jacalyn Bower-Kreitzer.  Hers is a voice of a wonderful variety of tone colors coupled with intelligent and subtle nuance.  Her singing was always first-rate, but especially in the “Liber scriptus” and “Lux aeterna”.”  Verdi’s Requiem/Greensboro Symph. Greensboro News and Record, Tim Lindeman
“New to the ensemble is the Erda; Jacalyn Bower-Kreitzer sang her pronouncement with dark shadows, with the power and velvet tones it requires.”  Duetsche Oper Berlin, Spandauer Berlin, Hans-Jorg von Jena
“We loved the debut of the American Mezzo soprano Jacalyn Bower-Kreitzer, who has  an ample and expressive voice with a voluptuous tone and noteworthy technique.  She displayed her professionalism and talent from the very moment she began singing “Parto, Parto me tu ben mio, from Mozart’s “La Clemenza di Tito”…she gave the Ravel “Sheherazade” feeling, style, and impact.”  Mexico City News/New Mexico Symphony/ Ricardo Rondon
“Bower-Kreitzer sang “The Field of the Dead” with a haunting tenderness.  Her voice, richly Wagnerian, with its penetrating power finely balanced by her skill, with sensitive, meaningful phrasing, projected, a tenderly stoic dignity.”  San Jose Symphony/George Cleve/Alexander Nevsky  San Mateo County Times/Cheryl North
“IF, as Swiss psychiatrist and philosopher Karl Gustav Jung once said, “The art of life is the rarest and most distinguished of all the arts,” there should be more of Kreitzer’s kind of recital, at this level of communicative quality.  Kreitzer upholds that great artistic tradition, and she is equipped to do it.”  San Luis Obispo Mission Recital/Telegram-Tribune/Musafia
“On Friday evening, Jacalyn Bower-Kreitzer showed how Ravel’s cycle should be performed.  Her voluptuous mezzo, seductive French and sensitive rendition of textual and musical nuances were beautifully done…”  San Jose Synmphony/GeorgeCleve/Times/Ratliff
