"The most impressive performer, for example, Toni Marie Palmertree, with a bright, big-and-beautiful voice and appealing musicality, sang two very different Verdi roles — Violetta in the Act 2 scene of La traviata and Elisabetta in the first part of Act 4 of Don Carlo.
The soprano from Fleetwood, PA, managed to maintain an affecting lyrical quality in face of Ryvkin's orchestral storm, especially in the deafening Don Carlo excerpt"
---Janos Gereben, San Francisco Classical Voice
"Toni-Marie Palmertree was arresting as Medora in "Non so le tetre immagini" from Verdi's Il Corsaro. Her voice is exquisite and she stood out as the Sandman in a scene from Hansel und Gretel in the second half of the night"
---The Opera Tattler: Reviews of performances and their audiences
"a lovely contribution from soprano Toni Marie Palmertree as the Sandman; earlier, Palmertree had given a first-rate rendition of an aria from Verdi's Il Corsaro
---Joshua Kosman, The San Francisco Chronicle
" of the 23 singers, who had a big night? In order of appearance, the first to make an impact was baritone Sol Jin singing “Vy tak pyechalni…Ya vas lyublyu” from Tchaikovsky’s Queen of Spades. Next came soprano Toni Marie Palmertree's nicely ornamented Non so le tetre immagini" from Verdi's Il Corsaro, sung with appealing legato"
---Mark Rudio, A Beast in a Jungle:San Francisco Performing Arts, Culture Calendar & Reviews
"Act 4 of Don Carlo. Bass Ming Zhao did a beautiful job as King Filippo... Toni Marie Palmertree tore it up as his queen Elisabetta"

Concert Review: April 26, 2015
Soloist in The Reading Choral Society's performance of Brahm's Requiem
"her gorgeous, angelic voice soared, with seemingly endless reserves of breath."
Susan Pena-Reading Eagle
Reading Eagle Concert
Toni Marie Palmertree...gave a gleaming, vocally impassioned solo performance in the "Laudate Dominum" from the Mozart. With its silken, mellow tone, her voice carried the libretto, taken from Psalm 117 ("For bestowed on us is his loving kindness"), with a nuanced precision.
