“Giglio sang with great poise and professionalism managing to overcome the extreme difficulties of what Mozart offered her: leaps from low A’s to high C’s, great stretches of notes without a place to breath and florid passages that would make a canary blanch.”

The Observer (Mozart: Grand Mass in C Minor)

“…but the real star of the show was soprano Michelle Giglio, whose voice seems to grow richer,  larger and more beautiful with every hearing….  Hers is a very special gift.  She needs only to open her mouth and sing.  Batteries  needn’t be included.”

The Observer (Dvorak’s Te Deum)

“…the Kyrie opened with the glorious voice of Michelle Giglio.. the Et incarnatus est expressive solo for soprano is what we always sigh for- an elegantly lofted voice, with Giglio doing the honors surrounded by a trio… it was close to magic.”

( Mozart’s Grand Mass in C minor- Gloria Musicae 30th year celebration with the Sarasota Orchestra at the  Sarasota Opera House)

“But in a transcendant moment soprano, Michelle Giglio, was given the juciest quote from St. Hildegarde.. as Joan recounted her forced confession, thus condemming herslf to death…. there was  a sense among those present at this Premier live performance in Sarasota that they had experienced something rare and very special”

(Richard Einhorn’s “Voices of Light” with Key Chorale and Sarasota Orchestra)
