Mozart Coronation Mass (The City Choir of Washington)
Rachel Barham, Francesca Aguado, William Edwards and David Meyer made a fine soloist team, their ample voices precisely articulated and confident, whether alone or with the chorus.

Magnificat (The City Choir of Washington)
The vocal soloists (soprano Rachel Evangeline Barham, mezzo Monica Szabo-Nyeste, tenor Brendan Sliger and bass David Dong-Geun Kim) were superb and well-matched.

Brockes Passion (Handel)
"Ole Hass as the Evangelist, Steven Combs as Jesus, Rachel Barham as the Daughter of Zion, Barbara Hollinshead as the Believing Soul and Tony Boutté as Peter sang their taxing assignments beautifully."
- Cecelia Porter, The Washington Post (2009)
Oblivion (opera by Kyle Gullings)
"The performers handle the challenging score with panache.[...] Rachel Evangeline Barham brings a quiet vulnerability and bell-clear soprano to the role of Howard’s worried wife, Sonia... rounding out a remarkably talented cast."
- Ben Demers, DC Theatre Scene (2010)
"I was humming this beautiful melody of “Plumtree” as I was leaving Oblivion and I could still hear Rachel’s gorgeous rendition in my head when I arrived home. If I had time, I would pop in and hear her sing it at all the remaining Fringe performances of composer/librettist Kyle Gullings' wonderful opera."
- Joel Markowitz, DC Theatre Scene (2010)
L'Incoronazione di Poppea (directing)
"Directors Debbie Niezgoda and Rachel Evangeline Barham molded all the disparate elements of opera into tight coherence..."
- Joan Reinthaler, The Washington Post (2009)
Dido and Aeneas
"Standout singers in this performance were Caitlin Budney as Belinda (Dido's handmaid) and Rachel Evangeline Barham as Dido's attendant. Budney and Barham sang a duet early in the opera with engaging energy and to beautiful effect."
- Karren LaLonde Alenier, The Dressing (2008)
Rachel was chosen as one of the Favorite 2010 Fringe Festival performers by DC Theatre Scene.
