Press and Reviews
"Ms. Rodda’s splendid soprano soared and flooded the room with joyful abandon."
"Rodda was a vocal symbol of the strength and resilience of her songs. They spoke for the winners past and present who, despite obstacles beyond belief, have emerged with messages of freedom of expression and universal love."
"Rodda has a lovely voice, full of color and body in every register, and the poise to perform unselfconsciously in an intimate space, which can be more of a challenge than a large hall with 3,000 people."
"As Alice, she was convincingly emotionally frustrated and physical uncomfortable, and as Nora she was almost serenely dignified, with a gentle demeanor cloaking a granitic backbone."
