“For more than a decade, I’ve listened to Tim Bruneau performing music ranging from Handel arias to jazz standards by Duke Ellington; from French art songs to musical theater gems by Rodgers & Hammerstein. The joy of his gift is that, no matter what he sings, his voice sounds at home, he backs it with solid musicianship at the piano and the message is always from the heart.”
