I really enjoyed meeting Judith and had a great time working with her. Judith kept in very good communication and was always very punctual to rehearsals and performances. I am also incredibly grateful that she travelled such a great distance to play with us. An obviously capable musician with a huge amount of experience, I think Judith could have, initially, better prepared however by the end of the run she was excellent. I hope we will get to play together again, thank you for being such good fun!

I have known Judith for the past ten years. I have worked with her in the capacity of conductor, accompanist, and chamber music partner. I believe Judith to be both a first class violinist and musician. In my experience, she brings total commitment to her professional music-making activities. She is an excellent communicator, a person of strong character and a natural team- player. This is demonstrated in her successful career as an orchestral musician, including contract positions with The City of Birmingham and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras.
