Jacobs, Associate Artistic Director- American Musical Theatre of San Jose, Co-Director- Music Theatre Conservatory, Belmont, CA. ? ?'A few years back, I attended a performance of 'Rent' and I found that I simply had to know who the lead chorister with the outstanding voice and musicianship was. It turned out to be Francesca Camus and her name has equaled 'quality' ever since. Not only does she exude sex appeal and charm, her vocal stylings are a highlight of any show in which she appears, as is her versatility. If there's anything she *can't* do, I've yet to hear it. Francesca is a constant wellspring of joy to her listeners.' - David McKee, Managing Editor at 'Francesca is an absolute dream to work with. From being professional and efficient in her craft to capturing every eye and ear with her knock out showmanship, Francesca is the complete package.

You'll have to witness her yourself to truly understand what a remarkable presence she has.' - Chris Felix, Bass/Guitar ?
