“Jessica can make the flute sing. We did not need a vocal soloist for our daughter’s wedding – just the lovely tones from Jessica’s flute.”

– Jane Brzoska, wedding client

“I have worked with Jessica in many venues for more than 20 years.  She is always prepared, is an excellent sight reader and possesses the ability to play accurately and musically with a unique, pervading sound that is not ‘breathy’ but full and round.  She has an extensive repertoire, nothing fazes her and she is a delight to work with.”

–  Frederick A. Tripodi, MM, organist

“As a colleague of Jessica Raposo for several years at Stamford Young Artists Philharmonic, where she leads SYAP’s two flute ensembles, I can attest to her preparation, commitment to teaching, and strong work ethic. Her caring follow-through with students is exactly in keeping with our commitment to the creation of the pursuit of excellence in a nurturing environment.”

– Joyce DiCamillo, Executive Director, Stamford Young Artists Philharmonic

“What makes for great teachers? They have an in-depth knowledge of the subject matter, and just as importantly, are able to convey the information to the students. Such a teacher is Professor Raposo. I have taken two music courses with her and they were a joy. Every class was well-planned and exciting. I hope to be able to take more of her classes. And catching her in performance is an added bonus.”

– Dr. Anthony Tosti, former student, NCC

“I have had the distinct pleasure of performing with Jessica Raposo in several chamber music concerts over several years.   She is an extremely solid, strong but sensitive musician.  She has superb solo and ensemble skills.   She is tireless in her goal of putting forth a flawless and moving musical performance.  She is one of the easiest persons to work with. She is entirely professional in her interactions with other musicians.  She shares her insights freely and is open to others’ insights.   Her outstanding skills elevate those of others.  It has been a privilege and an honor to perform with Jessica.”

–  Ralph Kirmser, oboist

“I have had the great fortune of working with Jessica Raposo in many venues, from solo recital, to pit band, to recitals with other musicians. I have also had the pleasure of seeing her conduct, and as a professional musician myself, I consider myself quite fortunate. Her musicianship, professionalism, and musical expertise place her among the very best of the flautists with which I have had the pleasure to work. As a flautist, in tone, skill and artistry she is a force to be reckoned with!! Every performance of hers that I witness or participate in shows growth at her craft. I have worked with flautists around the world, and Jessica continues to be a musician that keeps growing at every level. I would recommend her without hesitation for any job I could imagine: performer, teacher, conductor and mentor. She is a joy!!”

–  Kyle Nobles, MM, pianist

“I have employed Jessica for many years as a flutist for our Christmas concerts and masses.  Her artistry and professionalism make her a pleasure to work with.”

–    Marjorie Donalds, music director, St. Mary’s Greenwich

“A thorough and insightful teacher for adults and children-alike. A kind-hearted professional who brings passion to every lesson.”

–  Britney, former student, NVCC

 “Jessica played at our daughter’s seaside wedding ceremony. It was magical! Her music complimented beautifully with the ocean sounds and views. Amazing!!!”
