La Guirlande
'Haute-contre tenor Lawrence Wiliford was a powerful and passionate Myrtil, dazzling in his runs''
- Jeffrey Gantz, The Boston Globe, February 17, 2014

"The firm voice of tenor Lawrence Wiliford also shone in part two. Wiliford’s nuanced theatricality and powerful voice made his portions – none of which normally stand out – some of the more memorable sections of this Messiah."
- Cy Ashley Webb, Stark Insider, December 16, 2013

Albert Herring
"The large ensemble cast was delightful, though Lawrence Wiliford was a standout in the title role—not just as a tenor, but also as an actor. He was meek and pitiful after Albert’s overbearing mother (mezzo Rebecca Hass) and the committee’s domineering Lady Billows (played by superb soprano Sally Dibblee) bullied him into taking on the May King title. But as the story unfolded, he transformed into a hilarious drunk—withering helplessly into his seat, his legs folding like pretzels when he later tried to walk down the street."
- Alyssa Noel, Georgia Straight, December 2, 2013

"In the title role, tenor Lawrence Wiliford excelled in Albert’s darker moments. [... H]is second act turn as a drunk and frustrated Albert (a cheeky male version of the conventional mad scene) was spectacular, with just the right touch of bitter desperation to move from comic turn to psychodrama."
- David Gordon Duke, The Vancouver Sun, December 2, 2013

"In addition to a lovely lyric tenor, Lawrence Wiliford has a natural gift for comedy. […] Wiliford was absolutely believable as a naturally sweet young man pushed to anger and rebellion by the expectations both of society and his overbearing mother."
- Robin J. Miller, Opera Canada, Spring, 2013
