About Susannah

“A heart-stopping vocal performance…her crystal, pure high notes carrying the listener into another dimension.”

– Jennifer Gall, Canberra Times, April 19th 2013, reviewing The Song Company’s “The Prophet”

“Her pristine clarity in arabesques at the very top of her range were of surpassing beauty.”

-Peter McCallum, Sydney Morning Herald, March 25th 2013, reviewing The Song Company’s “The Prophet”

With her fine legato and secure, un-showy delivery, she made the ideal soloist.

…Lawergren was quite special here. Contrasting arias saw some dexterous vocal coloratura jousting with the Olympian athletics of the trumpet, while offsetting that were the finely controlled lines of the central aria spun over cello and chamber organ.
