She's amazing and very punctual 👍

Donna was such an amazing musician. She played nice soothing music throughout the reception. Not to mention she played amazing during my wife's entry and the chapel. I highly recommend her for anybody who wants to hear a really good musician play in your special event.

Her performance was the highlight of our event. Her repertoire was perfect and she also prepared a few special song requests. Excellent communication during the planning before our event. She gave our 25th wedding anniversary party that special touch. Extremely happy we were able to book Donna. All our guests really enjoyed her music!

thank you so much for making it memorable for her...

"Thank you so much Donna, you were awesome and exceeded my expectations!

You asked what kind of music I wanted for my wife's surprise party and everyone was blown away with the music, from Prince, to Tina Marie, to Frank Sinatra.

It was a great birthday party and you were the cherry on top, thank you so much for making it memorable for her.

May God bless you, and we will see you again."

She even hide saxophone when my wife looked in to the window, after Donna knocked to our door, to make sure surprise will not expose to soon!

The song she should perform was Russian song, so she played it by ear and played very very well!

Highly recommend her for any event

Donna was awesome!

She arrived early setup quickly and took requests. I couldn't ask for a better experience. She is very talented and you can really feel the music when she plays. Her prices are also way better

She is very talented and you can really feel the music when she plays. Her prices are also way better than other saxophonists I looked up who didn't sound as good as she did.

I highly recommend her for any event! Thanks for doing such a great job!

Donna is an extremely skilled instrumentalist...

Ms. Schwartz arrived on time, prepared, and with zeal. She honored each request that was made of her and the birthday girl was so pleased by the entire set; especially her rendition of "You & I" by Stevie Wonder. Many of our guests raved about her virtuosity. Donna is an extremely skilled instrumentalist and she plays with love and passion. Thank you so much, Donna!


Rick Tate

Plays With Passion

To engage an audience a musician must play from the heart. When Donna Schwartz takes the stage and picks up her saxophone she moves past her heart and reaches into her soul. Donna plays with passion and her dedication to her craft is apparent not only by the comfort with her instrument but through her stage presence and awareness of her audience. The result is a very entertaining and memorable performance. So sit back, relax and enjoy the music of Donna Schwartz.

Gifted Musician

As an artist, you strive to translate the ideas inside your head into an emotive work- which conveys your message. In many cases, the most perfect pathway is a collaborative effort with a gifted musician. Donna S represents a wonderful channel of tone and expression and I am thankful to have her talent as an ongoing feature on my releases.

On top of that she is one of the nicest entertainers I have had the pleasure of personally meeting !! Rock on Donna !!!! We love you!!
