MOZART REQUIEM - PHOENIX SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
"Tenor Mark DuBois' lyrical voice sounded blessed with infinite grace." - The Arizona Republic

SOLO RECITAL - BARRIE CONCERT ASSOCIATION
"Canada's most outstanding lyric tenor... is the posessor of a beautifully-coloured, lyrical voice which he used to excellent advantage... This reviewer must confess to not having listened to a more impressive performance (of Ave Maria and Serenade) since the late Fritz Wunderlich... deeply moving and emotionally convincing." - Examiner

SOLO RECITAL - CALGARY CHAMBER MUSIC SOCIETY
"(His) voice remains one of the most beautiful light lyric instruments around... His breath control allows him to take tempi that would break any other singer... DuBois' musicality and intelligence brings forth a Dichterliebe that is a true cry from the heart... a brilliant representative of the composer's and the recitalist's art." - Calgary Herald

THE BARBER OF SEVILLE (ALMAVIVA) - SAN DIEGO OPERA
"He sang the ornate music with uncommon sensitivity, even ventured some welcome flights of embellishment. He gave such a stylish, aristocratic performance, against the contextual odds, that one doubly regretted the traditional omission of the rondo finale." - Los Angeles Times

"Mark DuBois, as Count Almaviva, impressed with his handsome light tenor voice and vocal agility." - San Diego Union


THE GYPSY BARON (BARINKAY) - TORONTO OPERETTA THEATRE
"There isn't a better operetta tenor in the country than Mark DuBois, and every time he opened his mouth, his sense of phrasing identified him as a perfectly cast Sandor Barinkay." - Toronto Star

RECITAL (WITH PIANO, CLARINET & ALLEGRI STRING QUARTET) - WIGMORE HALL LONDON
"Mark DuBois sang with telling clarity and poignantly coloured tone... delivered with delicate restraint and attractively understated humour... a performance which again highlighted a mature musical sensitivity and a voice with a clear focus of words and well-developed interpretive skill, with subtle nuances and magical beauty." - Daily Telegraph

MESSIAH - CALVIN COLLEGE ORATORIO SOCIETY - GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN
"DuBois was particularly impressive. He sings with a marvelous clarity, warmth and freedom. His musicianship is direct and appropriately styled." - Grand Rapids Press

THE BARBER OF SEVILLE - CANADIAN OPERA COMPANY
"...a superb artist, beautifully phrasing every line of melody... captivated his audience." - Toronto Star

"... made a splendid (vocally and dramatically) Count Almaviva." - Globe & Mail


MESSIAH - VANCOUVER CANTATA SINGERS & CBC ORCHESTRA
"... his performance was world class... We heard a delivery that was smooth, a voice that was textured but silken, and an involvement that was deliciously understated and at the same time brilliant... the finest tenor performance I've heard." - The Province

MIDEM CLASSIQUE - CANNES, FRANCE
"And the Canadian tenor, Mark DuBois, physically very handsome and credible, svelt, charismatic, exactly right. Mozartean as Mozart, in one phrase and one breath in a dream-like line in the singing of the aria from Handel's 'Atalanta' (Care Selve)." - Nice Martin

THE DAUGHTER OF THE REGIMENT - NORTHERN IRELAND OPERA, BELFAST
"The Canadian tenor Mark DuBois (Tonio) has a light but warmly burnished voice with enviable freedom at the top; he will surely give much pleasure in the Rossini and Donizetti repertory in the years to come." - Financial Times (London)

"I was much impressed with Mark DuBois, as Tonio with a soft-grained voice of lovely quality. A personable singer, his lyrical performance was most attractive, with the eight optional C's in his first act beautifully encompassed." - Belfast Telegraph


RAFFI ARMENIAN 2OTH ANNIVERSARY GALA - KITCHENER - WATERLOO SYMPHONY
"Mark DuBois reaffirmed his status as our most elegant Mozart tenor." - Toronto Star

A NIGHT IN OLD VIENNA - HOLLYWOOD BOWL, LOS ANGELES
"More satisfying was Mr. DuBois, who displayed a distinct flair for the Viennese idiom along with an appealing, resonant tenor that was ever fluent and beautifully controlled." - The Tidings

AN AFTERNOON OF GILBERT AND SULLIVAN - SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL
"... sang like an angel. Everything he did was absolutely superb, a clinic of purity of tone, phrasing and musical line." - Hamilton Spectator

A COLE PORTER CELEBRATION - CINCINNATI POPS
"... tenor DuBois whose strong, clear voice, precise diction and energetic presentation commanded attention whenever he stepped to the microphone." - Cincinnati Post

SHOWSTOPPERS! (POPS CONCERT) - KITCHENER - WATERLOO SYMPHONY
"Not only was he in fine voice but seemed completely at home... His low notes were amazingly resonant, and his full-voiced upper register never faltered. Added to that were some falsetto and bel canto sounds that were positively ethereal... and he glissed the most beautiful portamento you could ever want to hear." - Kitchener - Waterloo Record

FROM OPERA TO BROADWAY - SYMPHONY NOVA SCOTIA, HALIFAX
"... sings with real artistry in a singularly beautiful voice... the challenge in versatility and variety he meets not just capably, but brilliantly... His voice is clear, light and fresh, displaying even tone, strength and control in all registers." - The Mail-Star

BACH CANTATA 60 - TORONTO SYMPHONY
"... came through with exceptional clarity, tonal purity and emotional intensity... managed to introduce an edge of steel into his performance without loss of lyrical beauty." - Globe & Mail

DON PASQUALE - CALGARY OPERA
"Without question, the most beautiful singing in the opera came from Canadian tenor, Mark DuBois. DuBois' sweet, clear voice, superb enunciation and effortlessly easy style of singing was ideal for the part of the ernest and somewhat sentimental Ernesto. It was worth the price of admission just to hear DuBois sing the serenade at the beginning of the final act." - Calgary Herald

FROM OPERA TO BROADWAY - MONTREAL SYMPHONY
"... the audience heart and soul belonged to DuBois from the moment he walked on stage and immediately established his unquestionable artistry... meltingly beautiful voice... a tenor for our time." - Sunday Express
