"Wheeler matched their restrained introspection with a velvety richness of tone, especially in her lower register. It was all the more remarkable for conductor and soloist to achieve this balance, as Wheeler had replaced a stricken Elizabeth Campbell at extremely short notice."

Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Meg Matthews, The Northern Herald

"Kimball Wheeler (mezzo-soprano) as the Angel was rich, mellow, yet fully clear in the upper reaches of the part. The three singers themselves took the performance to dizzying heights; more well-suited and sympathetic artists could not have been found."

(Elgar Dream of Gerontius)
Melbourne Symphony

Robert Judd, The Australian

"Wheeler's rich mezzo was one of the evening's unanticipated delights. It has the vibrant color and silky texture found in the best of the English school of such voices. Coupled with an even articulation, her contribution to the work was exemplary."

(Elgar Dream of Gerontius)
Melbourne Symphony

Clive O'Connell, The Age
