An Enjoyable Experience!

I thoroughly enjoyed Taresa's latest performance at the Lowes Landmark in Jersey City on March 22, 2014. She is graceful, and elegant in her singing at the same time. She sings with such spirit that I was moved beyond words. I look forward to her next live performance.

Wonderful Preformance

My lady and I had a wonderful experience at the LANDMARK JERSEY LOWES THEATRE.
Seeing Taresas's performance was an exciting and touching. You can see the feelings that she puts forth with every word she sings.
We are very anxious to hear her again and we were very glad to meet her after the show.

Perfect Performance !!!

I hired Taresa as a singing telegram for my husbands 60th birthday. She was much more then I expected and sang 5 beautiful songs my husband enjoyed. She is a classy lady and well organized. Our venue was a little challenging but she was spectacular!!! Everyone loved her and asked where I found her :). Would hire again and highly recommend.....

Talented & Professional

Taresa sang arias and Italian classics at the artist reception, "Inspired By Italy" at my fine art gallery, Santa Bannon / Fine Art on Oct. 4, 2013. She was prompt, courteous, professionally dressed for the occasion, and talented and sang all of my favorites. She was flexible as far as a room change even after she had set up her equipment and she was competitively priced. I recommend her!

Such an big voice from this little girl. Amazing!

I have had the pleasure of joy seeing this young lady sing at several different venues & a wide range of music. My wife loved her so much that we asked her to sing at our wedding. We were honored to hear her stellar performance of both sacred music at our mass and classical crossover songs at our reception. What a gift! ...Elegant, classy, and down-to-earth performer! ...Attended her Dec. 2012 'Concert of Classics' where she performed with 2 great male tenor vocalists. Simply breathtaking... as always!

Such an IMPRESSIVE singer!

Teresa ("TT") sings like an angel!! She is a very talented young woman with an incredible voice! She performed at my wedding ceremony and during the reception and everybody present raved about her performance. Recently she performed at a Christmas Concert at a church in Passaic, NJ (Dec. 15, 2012). Everybody in attendance were very impressed by her voice and her varied selection of songs. She sings opera, classical, religious, as well as contemporary songs...all with professionalism and flare!

Wonderful ..talented professional and pleasure to work with.

My wife likes the songs of Sarah Brightman and Phantom of the Opera, so my aunt told me to hire TT who sings these types of songs.... so she performed at my wife's 50th surprise birthday party.  Amazing singer who looks like a celebrity walking into the room... the look... the voice and she is super friendly and easy to work with.  No diva attitude at all.  I also knew she sings pop songs and my wife likes Pat Benetar so I requested in advance two 80's rock songs after the opera and TT cranked out the 80's rock tunes without effort and did it in a different outfit to look the part.  Definite "A List" performer here.  ...We are hiring her to sing at our daughter's church wedding mass and reception for 2013. Love her!

This singer should be in Vegas! She rocks :)

I attended this "Night of Stars" concert because I heard there were some wonderful singers performing. When I heard Teresa, I then realized that I had seen/heard her perform years back at CAMI Hall in NYC at a concert called "POPRA" (pop and opera songs) where she performed solo and with the late Phoebe Snow (who I read was also a student of Teresa's voice coach, the late Mario Lisanti). All the sopranos at "Night of Stars' concert were awesome but I especially will always remember Teresa because she is so pretty and is one of a kind and stands out in a crowd. Her voice is a "must hear" and her stage presences is a "must see". Her voice clearly reflects the inner beauty within her heart and soul and she shares it openly with audience members. She even spent time mingling with guests after the concert and it was very late in the evening. She sings opera as well as she sings pop and it's like hearing and seeing 5 different sounding/looking performers all wrapped up into one powerhouse female singer. You rock TT. See you at your next concert and I'm bringing the family next time.

Truly magical.... the voice of an angel!

I am a young guy who doesn't know much about opera but my mom and dad are lifelong opera fans who have seen concerts at big venues like Lincoln Center and Metropolitan Opera so they know about great singers. I hired Teresa for to perform at my parents' surprise 60th wedding anniversary party and she floored everyone with her voice! (and looks absolutely stunning in her opera gown by the way :). My parents cried tears of joy and wouldn't stop hugging her when she finished singing so i asked her to stay a bit longer/overtime to perform a few more songs and she suggested some pop songs and she quickly changed gears... and also her voice style and sequins pants to match the pop songs she then belted out from different decades and the guests started dancing!. Truly incredible performer she is and pretty as a picture, down to earth and totally professional attitude. She greeted my Mom and Dad as if they were a real "royal couple" and they haven't stopped talking about her since. The best gift ever! We can't wait to see her in her next public concert. 10 stars for you Teresa and my entire family loves you! Thank you for your gift of voice! Hugs from my family.
