"This was another highlight, as Garbutt played through the difficult and diverse piece with clarity and poise." 

R. Derek Wetzel

The Harvard Crimson

"Dr. Garbutt is an excellent example of the 'organist-scholar' we need in the field. Her extensive research of women composers and organists active in France from 1872-1954, the era mirroring the tenures of César Franck through Marcel Dupré at the Paris Conservatoire, is an excellent resource for exploring the wealth of music outside of standard repertoire lists.  Her presentation for our Pedagogy Class was fascinating, informative, and yielded many new possibilities for teaching and performing."

Dr. Nicole Keller

Assistant Professor of Music and University Organist
University of Michiga

"Her playing transcended the academic aspect of the compositions and touched the soul of each of the composers. How marvelous it is when scholarship and art join together and are manifested in an outpouring of pure artistic expression." 

Michael Varlas

Concert Presenter

"Dr. Garbutt’s lecture and recital at OU were exceptionally well-delivered and well-received. Her program of music by women composers from her recent Fulbright research was superbly played and complemented the sonorities and sounds of our Fisk organ at OU. The students were captivated by her lecture notes, and she willingly spent extra time with them personally in studio class to answer their questions and encourage their own projects. It was a joy to have her here and I hope to invite her again!

Dr. Damin Spritzer

Area Chair and Associate Professor of Organ University of Oklahoma

"Joy is a natural teacher who instantly connected with the students. The presentation was fascinating and opened up a whole new ​segment of our repertoire that has been overlooked. Best of all, it wasn't a lecture but a conversation that engaged the students in thoughtful discussion." 

Dr. Daniel Aune

Coordinator of Organ Studies
Peabody Conservatory, Baltimore, MD
