Jacqueline Bruce

The Whole Review- Vol. 4 Issue I Mar-Apr '23 (page 14 & 15)

From Food and Music, American Modern Ensemble NYC:

"(Pianist) McMillen returned with soprano Jacqueline Bruce, for a well-conceived set including Bernstein's La Bonne Cuisine: Four Recipes for Voice and Piano, and William Bolcom's riotous send-up of regrettable salads, Lime Jello Marshmallow Cottage Cheese Surprise, the latter taking particular advantage of Bruce's persona and vocal pyrotechnics. (And the actual recipe, presumably followed faithfully by Ms. Bruce, made an appearance at the post-concert reception.)" MusicWeb International
