Joanne’s recital, though short because of our time constraints was very well received and the common thought was it was the highlight of the evening. More was definitely needed but we ran out of time. Unfortunatly, if I had been more aware, we would have had Joanne’talents on display a lot earlier in the evening
– Roger Beeching (Chairman of East Herts Council) 

The real star of the show, Joanne, put a human face on proceedings, performing a beautiful rendition of Puccini's O Mio Babbino Caro before returning later for the traditional sing along. – Watford Observer (North London Open Air Classical Concert) 

Joanne sang Ave Maria and Panis Angelicus, as well as helping us with our hymn singing. Such a beautiful voice, a real gift. She provided dignity and beauty to the service. I am greatly indebted to her.
