Corporate FunctionReviewed on May 12, 2023From Grand Rapids, MI

Judy was wonderful to work with. Very Professional and so Reassuring. Her talent was magnificent. I Highly recommend Her for your Event! We booked about 4 months out and our ability to correspond via email was a large load off my mind as we planned our Gala. Judy's presentation and sense of style was so elegant... A true Professional!

Judy Bowen:

Thank you so much for the great review, Dan! I really appreciate it! Thanks for having me - I had a wonderful time playing and everyone was so nice. It was a lovely Gala and beautiful venue with a fabulous piano! Judy
