"She's an extremely talented performer capable of playing a truckload of different woodwind instruments from around the world. She owns the sometimes hard to find alto flute and also owns an incredibly rare bass flute and plays both with such impassioned expression. I could hear her play the bass flute for hours." --Brian Satterwhite, film composer, February 2008.
