Thank you again for bringing life to my music in such a beautiful way. You surpassed my wildest expectations with your superb performance!
—Nan Schwartz, composer, Loving the Silent Tears
Thanks for bringing your fantastic voice, sweet spirit, and positive energy to the show. I loved watching you blossom throughout the process. I hope the opportunity arises for us to be creative together again.
—Vincent Paterson, director, Loving the Silent Tears
Another consummate professional. Flo only came here about six hours ago, and immediately got the sheet music, read it down in the studio, put it down for a record, recording it in French and in English, keeping some of her own translations because she wanted to make it just perfect. And then coming here and immediately dancing, singing, acting and making the song her own.
—Doug Katsaros, MD & conductor, Loving the Silent Tears
Sound was a very important part of the film and everything had to be just right so thanks for a great performance.
—Jim Jarmusch, director, The Limits of Control
I want to see everything you have done.
