Here is some feedback from the audience:

‘The whole evening was wonderful from the canapés and fizz to the stunning a capella performance of One Art…The CD is amazing!’

‘Thank you so much for a brilliant evening – utterly compelling and spellbinding.’

‘I did enjoy One Art & am listening to the Debussy songs at the moment: they’re lovely, and you’ve got a great accompanist.’

‘Spellbinding solo performance by Laure Meloy tonight in Canterbury – songs, poems and letters by Elizabeth Bishop set by Paula M Kimper. It was a privilege to be there.’

‘A thoughtful and engaging performance by @lameloy. Excited to listen to my new CD #ONEART’
