“If you know Jessica for her lovely solos from the woodwind section of the ASO, you’ll be delighted with the warm, personal style she displays on her own or in a duet.” 
- 7/4/11 Roy Harris in Atlantic Overtures

“Bach, as always, wrote instrumental parts that not only support the singers but often seem to converse with them. This was particularly apparent in the Part II arias “Frohe Hirten” and “Schlafe, mein Liebster,” in which flautist Jessica Lizak matched the vocalists with such light and free precision that the arias took on a nearly jazz-like casualness.”
- 12/13/10 Tom Schnauber in the Boston Musical Intelligencer

“...Hindemith's remarkable pantomime for two flutes (Sarah Brady and Jessica Lizak)” 
in Opera Boston’s Cardillac.
- 2/28/11 Jeremy Eichler in the Boston Globe

“We swell with pride when “our” musician – principal flutist Jessica Lizak – has a solo that holds the audience spellbound. (Nothing makes me happier, in fact, than when our Hingham friend Elizabeth – another ASO devotee – compliments the playing of “Eileen’s and Roy’s personal flutist.”) Is our contribution “worth it”? No question there.”
- 11/9/10 Roy Harris in Atlantic Overtures

“Yellow - written for the Xanthos Ensemble - seems to exploit the players’ youthful energy and rhythmic drive, especially guest artist Jessica Lizak on assorted flutes.”
