Sandy Foster was such a highlight, helping to create a lovely evening for our department's Christmas dinner party. Sandy took care of all the details with the venue host with regard to the room, instruments and sound set-up. The sound was perfect!
During our cocktail and dinner hours, the beautiful richness and purity of her voice and piano skills, together with her fun nature and sincerity added so much to our evening!
A true professional, Sandy Foster is such a pleasure to know and work together with.Rebecca Braun — Misericordia Hospital
I first heard Sandy perform here in Leduc at our Performing Arts Center as part of a concert series. I left that night feeling as though I had just had my soul washed. It was quite a wonderful experience!P. Carleton — Leduc Music Teacher
Sandy sings with passion which will move your soul. I would highly recommend her for any function you may be planning.David Heppner — President, Global Neighbors Canada/Thailand
I hired Sandy Foster and her Band to perform for our 35th Anniversary Appreciation and Fundraising event to show appreciation to our donors and sponsors. Sandy's voice is exquisite and she and her band members are top of the line musicians. After the event I received many positive comments on their performance and I now have several of her CDs that I listen to at home. Sandy was easy to contact and very personable. Further, the group really grasped the mission of our organization and Sandy's comments during her performance reinforced our messages. This sensitivity enhanced our guests' feelings that their support of our organization positively contributes to the community and is worthwhile. I would wholeheartedly recommend Ranenpur to anyone who wants to have beautiful, special music to enhance their event.Sheila Stauffer — Executive Director, Cornerstone Counselling Centre
Having produced and played for Sandy I can tell you first hand that her vocals are lush, warm and compelling with a great deal of stylistic range. Her songs always tell a story and are told with wit and charm. Energy and joy are hallmarks of her performances. Sandy sees life on the bright side and will not be deterred in pursuit of her dreams.Wes Caswell — Producer/Engineer/Arranger/Bassist, Gracenote Studio
Some individuals stand out for their great qualities and Sandy is one of those people. Her positive personality and love of music caught the attention of my grade 6 students, as well as myself. She has a positive, caring and motivated personality.
During her time in my classroom, she quickly developed a rapport with my students and they looked forward to her visits. Sandy taught my students various musical concepts and songs. She shared her resources with me and was willing to model and teach me, alongside the students. She taught my students two songs for their grade six farewell celebration. She also led the class in singing the songs and played keyboard during the celebration. She is a wonderful music teacher and a great role model.T. Williams — Teacher, Edmonton Catholic Schools
Sandy is a consummate professional with a natural gift for creating the ideal musical backdrop for any event. We have worked with her for both a formal staff function, and a school Grand Opening, and we were delighted with the way her performance enhanced our events.Kent Dixon — Manager of Communications, St. Thomas Aquinas Roman (STAR) Catholic School Division
Sandy's rendition of the bilingual version of the National Anthem was remarkable. Her live performance was reflective of a professional recording artist. Thank you for sharing your musical gifts with us.N.Dargis — Division Principal, Black Gold Regional Division No. 18
In my experience, Sandy understands what I need and delivers it with creativity, professionalism and intentionality to help me achieve my goals. Her passion is not just for the medium of music artistry but also for the people who will be moved by it. She knows when to be front and center and when to support from the shadows. Ranenpur is a bold adventure with the potential to involve clients in powerful innovative experiences with ripple effects in their lives and in their communities.Leslie Precht
