"Newcomer Caitlin Gotimer, doubling as Sandman and Dew Fairy, impressed with a full, focused soprano that penetrated easily and perked up listeners’ ears in her two brief appearances." 
Robert Croan, Opera News
Ms. Gotimer holds a Master of Music degree from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and she received her Bachelor of Music in Voice from Binghamton University, where she was introduced to classical singing thanks to Professor Thomas Goodheart.
"Caitlin Gotimer, in the title role, delivered an object lesson on the art of classical singing...she seemed undaunted by the demands of the role, negotiating the most intricate ornamentations and sustained, high-flung passages with equal agility."
