"We have booked talented Australian ensemble Pot-Pourri for a tour in Korea and for an Olympic Gala performance at the Seoul Arts Centre. Audiences loved the unique blend of classical and Broadway music, beautiful voices and comedy and interaction. The artists even learnt some Korean and Korean songs and won the hearts of the audience with their warmth and special magic. The group were very cooperative and a pleasure to work with. We look forward to working with them in the future and highly recommend their productions for venues and festivals anywhere in the world." CREDIA, Korea

“As event coordinator for the ANZFTA I have organised many conferences over the last 15 years but never have I come across such a unique and professional performance. Thank you so much for making our event such a memorable success. You had our audience captivated and enthralled and mystified with the fabulous performance of Pot-Pourri. We could not get enough of your performance and this was shown through the encore performance that you and your team received. The lively music, wholesome humour and thought-provoking lyrics delivered by Pot-Pourri offered something for every age and taste. I would strongly recommend Pot-Pourri to any organisation wanting a WOW factor as part of their evening.” ANZFTA (Australian Flexographics Technical Association)

“We were delighted that  Pot Pourri were able to celebrate and perform at my parent’s 70th wedding anniversary.  Those present were completely entranced by the performance and we have only received accolades from all. Such descriptions as “perfect” and “best party ever” were indicative of the reactions.  I know my parents were extremely thrilled and “blown away” by Pot Pourri’s appearance. Many thanks to all who were part of the presentation.” Tom Danos

We booked The Pianist and The Diva (Stefan Cassomenos and Tania de Jong) to headline our final concert at Whitehorse Festival. Tickets for the concert booked out in a number of days, and we had record attendance on the day. As Festivals Coordinator my role is not just to maximise attendance, but to provide valuable cultural and artistic experiences to our audience, and Tania and Stefan provided just that. As I sat side of stage I could hear the laughter, applause and utter joy of the audience as they watched, listened and sung along to Tania and Stefan’s performance.”  Whitehorse City Council
