“The moment signified the earliest moment in this opera that I have ever burst into tears before. […] Haji has a tone that is perfectly Italianate, very musical and yet seemingly effortless.”
— barczablog (October 17, 2015)

“Tenor Andrew Haji […] brings his beautiful, bright, sweet, and aristocratic lyric tenor to Alfredo. […] He’s also a very fine actor, moving well on stage and offering a most ardent and endearing characterization. He’s a singer who’s going places.”

Dichterliebe (April 9, 2015)

“Haji has a glorious tenor, bright, clarion, sweet, rich, always used with musicality and discerning taste. To sum it up in a few words, his singing on this occasion was marvelous.”
— La Scena Musicale (April 10, 2015)

“His voice sounded flexible and easy throughout, and most importantly, he sang with an honest sound. […] He spoke each word as though it were happening to him at that moment. […] Whatever Haji was thinking about during that gorgeous final piano postlude, it was stunning to watch.”
— Schmopera (April 9, 2015)
