REVIEWS

“…her specialty, German cabaret, brought the house down. From her visceral, bright-edge high notes to the cool reflection of the lows, she transported Kurt Weill's politically-driven music from the turbulent 1920s and 1930s of Berlin to the oil fields of Iran ...  "McNaron is one of Birmingham's cultural treasures, unafraid to voice her world view through cabaret song, freshly mapped from a decades-old genre.”                                                              ~M. Huebner, Birmingham News, 2006

MASTERS CABARET: 

KURT WEILL RETROSPECTIVE 
WITH THOMAS BAGWELL, PIANO

" ... sung with spine-tingling bawdiness and cynicism. McNaron was masterful at morphing from a sassy cabaret singer to full-voiced operatic soprano and back again. Together, she and Bagwell created a unique ambiance of artful entertainment -- a gritty time travelogue that spanned cultural boundaries and human frailties."
       ~M. Huebner, Birmingham News, Birmingham, AL ,USA, May 2008
​ 

"McNaron gives each song a life of its own. Her bold interpretations 
may have opened a door for singers in search of great art songs."
                                           ~M. Huebner, Birmingham News, July 2010

CD, "ROSAS DE PULPA, ROSAS DE CAL" 

"Ms McNaron comes across as a vivid soprano of splendid intonation 
and beautiful  timbre, surely interesting to watch on stage for she has 
a strong dramatic sense."
                              ~Pablo Bardin, Tribuna Musical, Buenos Aires, 2011
