Alyssa is not only a gifted singer but an amazing young woman with a beautiful spirit . She was totally professional and no nonsense. Not a dry eye in the Church. Bravissimo !
Her experience in sacred and religious music has given Alyssa the knowledge in choosing appropriate music for weddings, services and ceremonies of various religious denominations. In particular, her expertise as a cantor for the Catholic mass provides her with the understanding of the required music and sung responses for the mass, as well as the physical and ministerial logistics of the role of cantor, giving music directors and celebrants peace of mind. She is also trained in using her voice to match appropriate styles needed for religious and sacred music.
A lover and advocate of art song and chamber music, Alyssa plans and presents numerous musical programs for large and small private events. She is available for vocal recitals, concerts, parties and other special affairs, and can customize her programs according to your themes and preferences.
Alyssa encourages live auditions as she is often told that, "The recording on the web doesn't do Alyssa justice". Please contact her to find out where you can hear her or for a private hearing. Rates for weddings include travel, a music rehearsal on the day of the wedding, music consultation, preparation and the performance, but can be negotiated depending on the client's needs and budgets.
"Music is an expression of our hearts and souls. It paints our feelings in a form that words alone sometimes cannot do. When deeply felt from the core of our beings, it can elevate and inspire us in an unforgettable and intangible way. With that belief, my desire is to not "perform", but to sincerely, deeply and humbly express the song's words and music through my instrument. It is my hope to bring joy, comfort, healing, love, inspiration and warmth to those who listen.
Thank you for considering me for your special event."
