2014 - 3rd Place Winner of The American Prize - Friedrich and Virginia Schorr Memorial Award in Art Song
"As Violetta, Steyer sang with tonal beauty and dramatic conviction. Her legato was seamless and she was impressive at both ends of the vocal range - we were in tears at the end."
---WFMT's Andy Karzas
