Excerpt from The New York Times review, November 6, 1957

Angelica Lozada Heard in Recital

Mexican Soprano Who Won Naumburg Award Makes Debut at Town Hall

"proved to be an attractive young woman with a great deal of poise and a winning platform manner. Miss Lozada's voice is quite small and delicate in texture... takes her voice for what it is, a light lyric soprano, and uses it with skill and imagination. Every song on her program was right for her voice... Her voice is well-focused and evenly produced throughout its range. She has great vocal agility, and can boast something rarely heard nowadays: a clean, seviceable trill...Whatever future turn, Miss Lozada's career may take, she has begun it with distinction." J.B.
