Thank you for your absolutely brilliant piano accompanying., for 
being resourceful, patient, creative and professional in the face of 
rain, wind, lost music, performer's nerves and primadonna-ish ness.

Once again many thanks for doing what you did on the old Joanna on Sunday!

Everybody thought you were just right for the occasion, and provided a good balance of music and variety. I think I mentioned to you that you were a big hit with one of the younger members of the party because you knew the latest hit from Frozen!
So well done and thank you.



I know I speak for all the members of our family when I thank you again for your contribution to our celebration. Your warmth, artistry and musicality were very greatly appreciated, and I shan't hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know in the area that needs a pianist.



A very big hug and a million thanks to you for making our day so special on Saturday. Thanks for accommodating my requests which bought back so many memories, and most of all my impromptu guest participation.
Sue and Mac

Dear Karen,
Thank you so much for the great concert on Sunday - definitely the best person I've ever turned pages for
- how do you remain so calm????? (Jane Schopf, Acton Hill Concert Series, Rákóczi Duo)


I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for your lovely playing and singing on Saturday. 

Martin and I had a wonderful day, and we were so glad that you were able to sing so beautifully for us during the ceremony. It cannot have been easy to capture two such different moods but you did it effortlessly. 

Special thanks for learning the Hippopotamus Song for us. I do hope that you get the opportunity to sing it again - all our family and friends have said how much they enjoyed singing it with you. 

Many thanks again, 




I just want to say THANK you for you outstanding performance in my wedding. It was such a romantic ceremony and joyful reception drinks.

You made it special day for us.
