According to Sheila Stewart MBE Wendy has The Conyach – the gift of singing from the heart.
“Wendy has a rare talent, both as a singer and a facilitator. From first meeting her I have been struck by her lively mind and profound understanding of the power of voice and song. Her own vocal flexibility, emotional range and ability to communicate make her a unique contributor to whatever she is engaged in. She has decades of experience in teaching and I’ve been very impressed as to her ability to adapt this to a much more informal mode of working. Her enthusiasm, mischievious sense of humour and intelligence are infectious. As a singer I have experienced her move her audience to tears, laughter,shivers and delight. I can thoroughly recommend her as both facilitator and performer.”
