“JOANNA JORDAN, THE PHENOMENON:

Jordan is a world-class maestro of the harp. Absolutely superb. The elegance of her music, the virtuosity, the tempo, the intelligent variances and nuances, and above all, the multidimensional mastery of the musical cadence define the magnificent and unsurpassed talent of Joanna Jordan. True, it is an electric harp, but, the warmth of her musical interpretation, the rich choice of her repertoire, and the nostalgically delightful and sweet ambiance she creates, crown Jordan as the first lady of the contemporary harp. This fine musician is a true gem; La crème de la crème.”
Maximillien De Lafayette,
WORLD ART CELEBRITIES JOURNAL DEC/2004-JAN 2005

 

“Our concerts with Joanna Jordan appealed to the wide range of musical tastes in both sold-out concerts. Their ability to move between genres while retaining the integrity of each style is unparalleled. Joanna’s warm personality and charm created an intimacy between the audience and the performers. She’s one of the country’s best musical communicators.”
