"Jennifer Fair was sensational on the MVSO annual holiday show! Her beautiful voice and poise were equally evident in styles from 'O Holy Night' to 'Stable Down the Road (Classical to Gospel Blues). What a pleasure it was to work with Jennifer!  Dayton is lucky to have such a talented artist.”~David Dietrich, Conductor, Miami Valley Symphony Orchestra

"Jennifer Fair has extraordinary talent and it was on full display with the Jersey Shore Pops. Jennifer captured the moment as she showed her range and ability to go from Broadway, to Pop to Opera. Jennifer was the most amazing singer I have heard and the audience agreed. Three standing ovations proved that! Jennifer had complete command of the Andrew Lloyd Webber arrangements and it was a show stopper. I look forward to seeing her again as we plan on bringing her back!"

~Jon Ready, Board Member, The Jersey Shore Pops

"Ms. Fair is the ultimate professional. Selecting her to perform at   our recent conference was an excellent choice. Jennifer has a fabulous voice, an electrifying stage presence, and the ability to connect with her audience. Our attendees are still talking about her performance months later, which means they are thinking about our company, because we brought her to them. Ms. Fair will be a highlight of your meeting."

~Julius Anderson, CEO; First Heartland Capital; at Waldorf-Astoria NYC

"...Jennifer Fair (playing Despina) almost stole their thunder. Fair's voice was lovely and facile. No matter what Fair was singing, she had the undivided attention of everyone in the house."

~Martha Fawbush, Asheville Citizen-Times~Asheville, NC

"We in the cool mountains of North Carolina were excited by the performance of Jennifer Fair at our FORUM series. Her mix of classical arias and popular songs were beautifully handled. She had a great rapport with the audience and this added to the performance. It also doesn't hurt that her wonderful voice is accompanied by a stunning appearance. All in all she is a delight to the ear and to the eye."

~Cliff Williams, FORUM Arts Foundation President; Boone, NC

“The fabulous Jennifer Fair wowed the audience with her powerful voice. Her repertoire was eclectic in its variety. The audience loved her. A few times she had Club members join in on the chorus. She brought many operatic and show tunes to the stage and received several standing ovations. She is an awe inspiring soprano.”

~Larry Liebers, Record Gazette; Banning, CA

"Ms. Fair's voice displayed an extraordinary range and was 'crystal clear'  in pitch which was stunning. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed her performance, and she received numerous standing ovations. It was an inspiring evening. Her concert was the highlight of our season."

~Patricia Vansant, Executive Director, Frankfort Arts Foundation; Frankfort, KY

“I had the privilege of booking Jennifer Fair for a fundraising performance at our clubhouse in Boynton Beach, Florida.  Her show was fabulous.  Jennifer's voice, repertoire, stage presence, and rapport with the audience was magical.  What a wonderful evening!”
