"You had to be there to see it, hear it and feel it.  The performance was sublime.  Dr. Caroline Gibson, Soprano, accompanied by Dr. Keith McCutchen on the piano with the Kentucky State Concert Choir sang 'O Holy Night' like the majesty of heaven.  I was in awe to witness what was surely a divine connection."
The Courier, Frankfort, Kentucky
"At the conclusion of this performance I was left amazed by Gibson's incredible technique, encompassing:  masterful breath technique, incredible diaphragm support, splendid projection, coupled with superb enunciation, and impeccable deployment of vibrato."

           "...the emotional content is something that individuals of all ages and experiences will be able to take from this album ("On Ma Journey Now")...I would like to hear other works from Gibson (perhaps something along the line of more traditional operas) and really hear the ends of her voice."

I was truly impressed with the performance and grateful that you invited me. I will admit, I came in with mediocre expectations. But, I left breathless!!  I was able to close my eyes and FEEL the emotion.



LETTER FROM President Raymond Burse, Kentucky State University ---- May 6, 2016 

3. Not to be outdone, the Music Department presented its Opera/Musical Theatre Workshop “Gala” in which students in the workshop performed. Their performances were superb. I thought I was at The Met! They demonstrated the talent which abounds within the Music Department here at Kentucky State University. I kidded with the students about how they can learn Italian and French, and speak and sing it fluently and correctly, providing just one indication of their mental acumen and ability to master anything before them that should spread to all of their academics. What made the performance even better was the presence of a large contingency of our community family from Frankfort. Hats off to Dr. Caroline Gibson and her colleagues in the Music Department.
