Sally Porter Munro's Resumè
 

REVIEWS
(Sally Munro presented the) "smoothest and most attractive performance of the

evening...gave vibrant readings of Mr. Irving's evocatively dramatized

Emily Dickinson settings...(his) Ave Maria with fluidity and subtle coloration, and the

light touch she applied to The Ostrich is a Silly Bird worked perfectly."
Allan Kozinn, The New York Times

Sally Porter Munro, who sang the Clarke, proved to be a fine mezzo with a clear, firm tone, excellent diction,...great panache…(Dring's) Come Away Death,…a brief lyrical stream of grief that had real pathos and power in it.

Michelle Dula, San Francisco Classical Voice

"...moving rendition of Schumann's song cycle Frauenliebe und Leben...clear, mellow and effortless vocal line...The two encores were richly deserved."
Sarah Ford, The Evening Echo, Bournemouth, England

"...The piece (Rio Grande) came to an unexpected repose with the solo sung by Miss Munro. Miss Munro went on to become the most outstanding feature in the Serenade to Music by Ralph Vaughan Williams."
Andrew Porter, Financial Times, London
