REVIEWS:

"Ang Mei Foong, a Lirico soprano, delivered euphonious melodies with lovely poignant qualities which were mellow, dulcet and soothing to the listener. Her rendition of "Tacea la notte" from Verdi's "Il Trovatore" was well controlled and even though sung in Italian immediately conveyed the mood of the aria through her heartfelt interpretation."
Phillip Chai, "Stelle", May 2016
 
"It was the consensus of the commission that your performances reflect musicality, depth of interpretation, and technical expertise needed to distinguish oneself in the world of professional performance."
Berliner International Music Competition Commission, 1 Sep 2018

"Her (Ang Mei Foong) leading role as Violetta showcased her stunning vocal dexterity and quality that was breath-taking even for us who have watched almost all her previous performances."
