"... robust baritone..." – Opera News
Candide – “Of course, none of this would fly without a strong cast. . . Joshua Jeremiah brings a robust baritone and high style to Pangloss."
“... Joshua Jeremiah gave a powerful performance…” – Seen and Heard International
Frankenstein – “Joshua Jeremiah gave a powerful performance as the creature. His voice rang out rich, free and open and his diction was extraordinary...Jeremiah was just as potent dramatically, intertwining the anger and rage of the creature with his humanity."
"... powerful baritone…” – Voci Di Meche
Morning Star – “Joshua Jeremiah used his keen dramatic instincts to create a believable character. His powerful baritone matched well with Ms. Pulley's soprano. We particularly liked a song he sang in Yiddish which was mostly understood by this German-speaking reviewer. He was reminiscing about what he missed about Riga.”
"... marvelous voice..." – The Addison Independent
Macbeth– “Mr. Jeremiah has an equally marvelous voice and he gives a nuanced, fascinating performance as a conflicted Macbeth. He, again, is also a true singer-actor, bringing a vitality and physicality to the role that is a delight to watch. This Lord and Lady Macbeth engage each other with a sparkling intimacy that makes their “road to hell” a very engaging one.”
"... warmly appealing, burnished baritone..." – Opera Today
A Midsummer Night’s Dream – “Joshua Jeremiah as Demetrius, whose warmly appealing, burnished baritone was wedded to exceptional diction. Both cut strapping romantic figures. . . These four lovers triumphed in the great Act Three quartet, their fresh, youthful instruments soaring, aching, and tumbling over each other in heartfelt, overlapping phrases. It proved to be the heart of the show and the unequivocal triumph of the evening.”
