-John Sikora, Director of Opera, Kent State University
“Vernon (Hartman) is a wonderful teacher, able to isolate what a singer needs to work on most…and get the most results in a short period of time. He…makes his singers feel at ease…As a director he…knows what he wants to achieve…and more importantly, how to get it.”
- Alan Fischer, Conductor, Educator, Tenor
“…He sees the entire process of putting on the opera, as an artistic partner with me, from first piano rehearsal to final performance.”
- Alfred Savia, Conductor
