Testimonies of Fran

“Francesca brought our St. Valentine’s Eve Supper and Cabaret Evening which was attended by over 100 people to life with a truly superb performance. The scope of her repertoire is very wide and varied and her choice of songs was just right for the wide age range present. There was something for everyone.
Her voice is truly beautiful and she sings with great feeling. She brought joy to us all and made the evening a great success.” 

Keith Arnold of Ruislip Lions Club and Ickermen

“We wanted to thank you for the beautiful soprano voice you shared with us on Saturday’s matinee and evening performance…”

Alan Kauffman (Concert Commitee Chairman) 

“The variety show included spellbinding Classically-Trained young soprano Francesca Mepham”
