Debut with a Bang
Review from subscription debut with the Minnesota Orchestra, 28 October 2008:

"Hicks brought order amid thunder in Thursday's first performance. Both works felt propelled and controlled, with little lost in the combination. The debut for Hicks is a dramatic one, mostly bold rather than subtle, but admirable all the same. Her confidence was apparent, her abilities obvious."

Hicks leads with skill and warmth
Excerpt from review of subscription concert with the North Carolina Symphony Jan 2010:

"Hicks...coax[ed] rich tones from the strings and burnished hues from the brass. The gorgeous, lilting melodies of the third movement and the exciting climaxes of the fourth were especially satisfying."

Scandinavia Christmas offers joys of the season
Excerpt from review of "A Scandinavian Christmas" with the Minnesota Orchestra Dec 2009:

"Despite being a Hawaiian with a paucity of Nordic blood in her veins, the orchestra's new principal pops conductor researched and assembled a warm and enjoyable program of tunes and traditions from five of Europe's northernmost countries. In addition to conducting the concert and writing four of the arrangements, Hicks took an admirable stab at languages from Icelandic to Finnish, and acted as ringmaster for a concert that featured two choirs, a pair of vocal soloists, and the lively Ethnic Dance Theatre."
