all the performers were astounding...Such rare artistic fun was a fine demonstration of the depth of talent to be found among young British musicians at the present time.

Nottingham Philharmonic Family Concert, January 2015

Adding vocal splendour to the concert were Charlotte Hewett in Dvorak's Song to the Moon and Rachel Maby in two Frank Sinatra classics. Their combined voices in Delibes' Flower Song was one of the evening's many highlights.

Sideshows, King's Place, London August 2014

Rachel Maby was wonderful in the various roles allotted her, chameleon-like in the way she changed characters.

Sideshows, Cockpit Theatre, London, July 2014

energetically conducted by Geyer...he wryly announces the arrival of malleable mezzo soprano, Rachel Maby, in her various guises (fire-eater, dancing bear and daughter of the bearded woman, to name a few). It’s a lot of fun, and if shattering expectations is the aim tonight, this troupe is the clear winner.

Soldier's Tale, Rose Theatre Kingston 2013

The portrayal of the Devil rose above... because Maby was so wonderfully malevolent.

Robert Hughill, classical music critic, 16th July 2013.
