“Carl Johengen stood out with sensitive phrasing. In “Comfort Ye”, he infused his tenor with dynamics and nuance. In “Ev’ry Valley”, he spun out seamless sequences on a single breath. His voice is not powerful but exquisite.” (Syracuse Post-Standard)

“Especially good (was)…the plangent tenor of Carl Johengen” (City, Rochester, NY)

“Carl Johengen…fulfilled multiple assignments with consistent distinction …making especially strong points.” (Syracuse Herald-Journal)

“Carl Johengen’s…crisp diction during the numerous recitatives made those normally dull spots a source of pleasure.” (Syracuse Herald-Journal)

“Carl Johengen carried himself impeccably…the most graceful yet commanding person onstage…a vocal talent worth watching….” (Ithaca Journal)
