Tania’s performance delighted women of the third sector, reflecting her work and the event’s aim, which is to inspire women to express their creativity and expertise and to achieve success in their endeavours for Australia’s not-for-profit industry. It was great to work with Tania and Third Sector is grateful for her for her support.”

“Tania and Jonathan were beyond what one could expect, their warmth and music were remarkable. I had one woman who rang me this morning to say she was ‘transported’. This lady has a terribly unwell daughter and believe me what the performance did for her was more than money could buy. Many, many thanks for the beauty and healing of the music.”

We booked The Pianist and The Diva (Stefan Cassomenos and Tania de Jong) to headline our final concert in the 2013-14 Whitehorse Festival Season. 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.”

“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.
