"Other outstanding performances included soprano Susanna MacRae, who played a delightfully flirtatious Manon from Massenet's "Gavotte", hitting the top notes like a songbird filled with the joys of life." - Richard Davies, Essential Surrey (2017)
"Susanna MacRae as Mabel has a thrilling voice with top notes that reminded me of "The Lark Ascending", so high and beautiful are they. A petite and pretty Mabel, who has grace, command and so much else in her slim frame, Susanna is clearly destined for a great career in music and theatre." - Jon Fox, NODA (2016)
"Susanna MacRae, who in her devotion and sweetness of voice caught perfectly the style of this much-celebrated music. One could not help feeling that Mendelssohn could have been composing with her in mind." "For the Vaughan-Williams Benedicite Miss MacRae stepped forward to deliver the contrasting solos of personal devotion with a most pleasing attention to the intimacy of the dynamic range and a tender and expressive sense which never faltered." - Mike Sproule (2016)
"Susanna's stylish interpretation of 'Deh Vieni non Tardar' from Le Nozze di Figaro was presented with poise and control and demonstrated clarity of tone, clearly articulated rhythmic precision and vivid characterisation so well suited to the Mozartian style." - Helen Grand, Guernsey Press (2016)
