Press

Luther invests the moment with such emotion, such sensitivity, that only the coldest heart can fail to be melted...
Opera Going Toronto
This is a versatile artist, able to convey many moods, projecting with ease, remarkable musicality, [and] a captivating voice.
Winnipeg Free Press
Tenor Adam Luther was in fine voice. In the Lacrymosa, his work was outstanding, but even more so in the Offertorium and its Hostias section.
