Voices of Musica Sacra, John Kendall Bailey, conductor
“In the midst of all this, the lovely voice of soprano Christa Pfeiffer was like balm to the ears. Pfeiffer's low range and midrange have a grounded, mature quality that brings to mind the late-career Arleen Auger at her finest. Here as well as in the lovely, lyrical "Esurientes" — the most successful movement of the piece — Pfeiffer's artistry elevated the performance." San Francisco Classical Voice

Oakland Lyric Opera’s Valentine Event
“…the aria from Handel’s Giulio Cesare, was a wonder. Pfeiffer has a vocal quality a bit like Gundula Janovitz’s – with nearly vibrato-free high notes that ring more purely the higher they go. In the ballroom of the Scottish Rite Center, with an echo to rival that of a cathedral, the effect caused jaws to drop.” The Montclarion

Wedding Cantata/J.S. Bach
Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra, Jonathan Salzedo, conductor
“The performance featured Christa Pfeiffer, a full voiced soprano. She combined expressive German with a keen sense of style and humor.” San Francisco Classical Voice

Recital, Gualala Arts Concert; Gualala, CA
Kristin Pankonin, piano and Roger Wiesmeyer, oboe
“The opening Wedding Cantata set a high standard for the evening. Piano and oboe framed and supported Christa Pfeiffer’s full, rich soprano. From the first note her voice was relaxed, controlled and gorgeous. The oboe and soprano duets by Ralph Vaughan Williams were pleasing, and Pfeiffer was particularly entertaining with the Cabaret Songs by William Bolcom.” Independent Coast Journal

Il Tabarro/Puccini
Oakland Lyric Opera, Mark Narins, conductor
“The smaller roles were very well performed, especially Christa Pfeiffer and William Gorton as the shore side lovers.”
The Montclarion
