Dr. S in The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat

"Consistently fine singing from tenor Brian Joyce. He and his colleagues projected their voices clearly and expressively over the accompaniment." - Jay Harvey, Jay Harvey Upstage

Nick in La Fanciulla del West
Knoxville Opera

"A real standout here, both vocally and dramatically, was Brian Joyce in the role of Nick, the bartender of Minnie's saloon." - Alan Sherrod, Metro Pulse

Pang in Turandot
Austin Lyric Opera

"On opening night a few scenes stood out. The ministers Ping, Pang and Pong make stunning use of the library’s rolling ladder, as the trio pines away for better times with exquisite timing, tone and movements." - Luke Quinton, The Austin American Statesman

"The Ping/Pang/Pong trio of Craig Verm/Joseph Frank/Brain Joyce was very entertaining. They all have good voices and produced lots of laughs." - Pat Dixon The Austin Post

"...deserving of special accolades are Craig Verm, Brian Joyce, and Joseph Frank (playing the trio of ministers Ping, Pang, and Pong) each of whom brings colorful detail to the production through his carefully wrought acting and vocal inflections." - Adam Roberts The Austin Chronicle

Dr. S in The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat
Austin Lyric Opera

"Tenor Brian Joyce was impressive in his ability to bring forth the mixture of clinical detachment, compassion, and scientific sleuthing necessary for the portrayal of Dr. S." 
- Sara Hessel, Music Director of KMFA 89.5

"...we were near enough to catch the subtle gestures and expressions that revealed the depths of their feelings: the cocked eyebrow of Brian Joyce's Dr. S when he found another piece to the puzzle..." 
- Robert Faires, The Austin Chronicle
