"On Behalf of the Committee members of the Musical Society of Geelong, I write to thank you sincerely for giving such a fine performance at teh Winter Recital recently".
"I found your singing to be truly enchanting, and more than once I noticed the absolute stillness of your audience as they, as well as I, were captured by the mood you created. Your highly skilled adn dsesitive accompanist allowed you to execute this difficult program with a beauty adn freedom attained by few vocalists. I especially enjoyed your fabulous rendition of Song To The Moon. I hope I can see you perform again in the future, and possibly catch up with you again at the Gold Coast Vocal Eisteddfod".
"Thank you for singing at our wedding. We were so happy that you could sing the songs we wanted. Thanks again".

"Thanking you dearly Donna for singing at our daughter, Ava Rose's Christening. Your singing was beautiful for the baptismal ceremony, and made the day all the more special and memorable. We and the guests were all left in awe of your voice. The effort you put into ensuring we chose fitting hymns for the day was so appreciated too. There is no doubt that we will recommend you to family and friends in the future. Finally, we can't wait until Ava is older so we can tell her that she had an opera singer at her baptism!!! Thank you."
