A SELECTION OF REVIEWS
“It took me a bit of reflection before I could figure out why the music that you and Oleg provided last evening was so important to me.
“I find that most good music is very entertaining in the moment. However, time with the two of you was a welcome respite from the cares of the world, that I find increasingly worrisome.
“For about an hour, I was able to completely forget about global warming, floods and the circus at Queen’s Park. That unrepresentative government is unravelling the social safety net that has laboriously been put in place over the last 100+ years and it is hacking away at environmental protections that help to mitigate the effects of climate change.
“I find that all of this is very heavy stuff and it was simply laid aside for a while and for that I am very grateful.
“God bless you both in your ministry of music”, TG May 3, 2019 “The Possibilities of Love” concert at Grace United Church, Barrie
“Thank you ! I was caught up in the music – and it was simply wonderful.”

“It was a great success in our eyes, and what fun ! We may just have to do it again next year if you are up for it !” The Rev. Monica Moore; St. James United and The Mary Street Centre, Parry Sound. “Spring in The Sound”, April 26, 2019 Dinner, Piano Bar and Dance. We had a great time, Monica, and would love to come back!!
“Dear Sandra: I want to thank both you and Oleg for “Putting it ALL out there” last evening. Your performance(s) were spectacular and I am grateful to you both for doing such an outstanding job. Words hardly seem adequate to express my gratitude (and so much for artistic people being “difficult” to deal with). You and Oleg make putting on a concert very easy. “ Organiser: J. Brown, May 2018 Barrie Concert, “Come Fly With Me”
“We thoroughly enjoyed last night’s performance!!” Vic & Nancy, May 2018, “Come Fly With Me”
“Sandra, the music was sublime at the concert. I could sense the “breath, sigh and pulse” of the audience around me. It took them to a calmer, more peaceful, more joyful place, beyond words and understanding. That is my take on it, anyway. Good for their spirit! Good for my spirit, too! I wish you joy, as you warm people’s hearts.” Maira M. Feb 15, 2018 Concert “Come Fly With Me”
“When’s your next concert? I’ll be there.” Ellen G. Feb 10, 2018 Concert, “Come Fly With Me”
“Thank you so much. Your voice is beautiful. We just loved it!”
