My husband and I are both classically-trained opera singers with a variety of stylistic abilities. We have professional backgrounds in opera, classical music, art song, sacred music, musical theater, and jazz.
Depending on your needs, one or both of us can be hired to sing. We have a variety of repertoire for you to choose from, or you are more than welcome to make a special request.
So send an inquiry, and let us show you how music can invaluably enhance the beauty, elegance, and spirit of your special day. Looking forward to hearing from you! :-)

I work for a nursing and rehab facility in Cincinnati, Ohio as an activities director. I wanted to bring something new, exciting and to provide an entertainment that some of our residents have never had the pleasure of experiencing. What better than Opera! I went straight to the internet and found GIGSALAD. Once on the website I found Dana & Pedro Willis - Barbosa. Booking, communicating, planning and payment was made easy thanks to Dana and the website. The day of the show Dana and Pedro arrived prompt, they were so patient with our residents and had QA after the program, they sang so beautifully I get chill bumps thinking of it. Dana was graceful and Pedro was so animated while performing and quite funny at times. It was an experience that our residents will never forget and I can't wait to have them back at a later date.
Price Range: $375 and up.
