“Without a doubt, Louise Pitre is one of the foremost interpreters of the Edith Piaf songbook and for that matter any song worth singing. Her audiences leave the theatre soulfully fulfilled and with a smile in they hearts. She is a joy.”

“I’ve watched and admired Louise in performance for longer than she’d like me to say. Several times over the years I’ve thought if Louise were American she’d be a household name by now. She’s the complete package – a beautiful woman with a superb voice who knows just how to engage an audience. Her years in the theatre give her an advantage on the concert platform because she knows how to shape a song, pace a performance, build a climax – and at the same time she shares with us her love of music and life in the most naturally delightful way.”

Elaine Calder, President, Oregon Symphony

“When Louise Pitre sings a song, you know what it means. As a writer, that is the first thing about a song that matters to me. She has charisma to burn and a voice that goes straight to the heart. She has no superiors.”

Terrence McNally, Playwright, Composer (Ragtime, Master Class, Catch Me If You Can)

“Louise Pitre is a rare breed – a terrific singer who is also a superlative dramatic actress. Her performances with our orchestra were knockouts!  She commands the stage with aplomb, and had our audience in the palm of her hand from the first note.”

Rob McAlear, Artistic Administrator, Edmonton Symphony Orchestra

“Louise Pitre is one of the most passionate and soulful singers I have ever worked with. It is a total joy to perform with her! She never fails to thrill an audience, whether in French or English, on Broadway or around the world.”

David Charles Abell, Music Director, Les Miserables, Montreal and Paris

“Louise Pitre is a consummate musician, with a beautiful rich voice and great style. In  Mamma Mia!, she never gave less than 100% of her voice, talent and spirit. No one has sung The Winner Takes it All like her since!”

David Holcenberg, Conductor, Mamma Mia! Broadway Production

“Working with Louise was absolutely delightful.  She could not be a more warm, kind and generous colleague.  But watch out when she launches into a song, as a ferocious drive and intensity take over.  It is truly transporting.  She had the orchestra eating out of her hand from the start of the first rehearsal, and the audience hanging on every word.  She is deeply musical, and I hope that I will have many more chances to work with her in the future.”

Steven Osgood, Conductor
