I highly recommend Diana Briscoe! I am a music contractor and a classical musician. I had hired Diana to sing for a funeral service. I also accompanied her for the entire event, so I can speak from both roles on her professionalism and musicianship. Diana was outstanding in every way! It was a very unique service with lots of special requests and all at the last minute for her to learn everything. She was immediately accommodating and responded in a very warm & sensitive manner for this very sad occasion. She was extremely professional. She spent a lot time in the preparation & research of finding the sheet music to very important requests and worked hard on matching musically with the various voice styles required of the music and even sing in a different language. She was hired to sing for the Catholic service for solos and be the Cantor to lead the congregation which requires skill, confidence, and leadership. The requests were in both English & Spanish for a bilingual service. Diana had learned everything and sang beautifully! As a musician, I was very impressed with how totally prepared she was, especially because of the last minute requests there were pieces we had to perform without a rehearsal! Only a true professional can do that and still make it a seamless, polished performance! The clients also wanted her to sing at the burial site. She sang a very important request of the mother of the deceased. Diana sang with sincerity, poise, and grace. So beautifully done and so touching. Diana was perfect!!!! I can't thank her enough for all that she did to make this funeral service one of most beautiful and for going above and beyond the call of duty in order to please the clients with the songs that meant to so much to them!!! Thank you Diana!!!
Ms. Briscoe did an amazing job performing for our school. Our students enjoyed it! She is a nice and genuine person and you can tell through her music that she loves what she does.
