"February's Promise" by Mark FLugge, with Andy Woodson (bass) and me (flute) at Mark's Capital Faculty Recital, November 2010


Particularly well-conducted and performed was Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite," which gave some of the symphony's excellent musicians the chance to display their skills and musicianship. Particularly oboist J. Scott Janush, cellist Mark Votapek, flautists Lisa Jelle, Susan McGinn and Erica Peel* and their dynamic performances made the piece shine.” - Valeria Wenderoth

Honolulu Star Bulletin

It's terrific playing, very interesting music, and well conceived all the way around. Congrats to you and Mark!” - Dr. Thomas Reed, Ashland University, Head of Woodwind Dept.

— Note on CD "Waltz into Madness"

...Finally I have had a chance to listen, and think that you and Mark totally rock! It's such a nicely balanced disc, too--great variety and fine playing throughout. And your pitch is excellent!” - Leone Buyse, Flute Professor at Rice University and former Principal Flutist of the Boston Symphony and the San Francisco Symphony

— Note

Benjamin Britten's witty Matinees Musicales charmed the audience with their five brief movements... Pontomime featured outstanding woodwind principals: flutist Lisa Jelle, oboist Andrea Brennan Hoy and bassoonist Ian Hoy. Felix Mendelssohn's "Reformation Symphony", composed in honor of the tercentenary of Martin Luther's Augsburg Confession, paid homage to J.S. Bach chorale-style writing.... In the finale, the pure gold tones of Lisa Jelle's flute introduced "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God."'” - Patty Knox

Ashland Times Gazette

I just listened to your CD for a 2nd time and was just as impressed as the 1st time- your playing is so beautiful and musical- the whole thing was a joy to listen to...” - Karl F. Kraber, Retired Flute Professor at the University of Texas at Austin and the Dorian Woodwind Quintet
