I can't express what a joy it was to meet and work with Gloria on our Dicken's Tea. She is not only amazingly talented, but such a professional and honestly sweet person. I am still hearing from our guests who raved about her beautiful voice, humor, and they all loved her costume. She had the perfect piano accompanyment and really made this event so special. I look forward to working with her on future events.
I was looking for a way to make something special happen for my son on his 30th birthday party he was having with his friends. Turning 30 being a milestone into adulthood...opera seemed the thing to do, and would absolutely be something he would never have anticipated in any way. In setting up the plan, I found Gloria to be very personable, kind, warm, and made great efforts to personalize the occasion by creating lyrics to her song to fit the occasion specific to him. She was not only prompt in responding to my booking, but pulled off the surprise without a hitch. From what I was later shown of the event, she came to the table and not unlike the Maxell tape commercial of years ago, her pure voice simply blew away my son and the others there. A voice that would be suited to fill the ceilings in an ancient cathedral, her voice so pure it could be described as ethereal. So wonderful to be reminded that such artistic talent exists! Of course equally funny was after she had left and my son and friends were singing happy birthday with a cake and candles, they all attempted to also sing in operatic vocals. I absolutely recommend Gloria for an event you may be planning.
I needed someone short notice and Gloria was very responsive... great communicator, gave me more options than i knew were available and came prepared with lyric sheets for all to sing along... she and her accompanying accordionist made a special event unforgettable
I highly recommend Gloria Gazave and can't thank her enough!! I am a classical musician and music contractor. I had hired Gloria for 3 events. Two were for house concerts for which I was to accompany her and the other was for a solo Caroling job. She was very professional, arrived early, very prepared with her music, but had also researched the background of every piece to be able to give entertaining tidbits of information to the guests. She was to also lead the guests in a sing-a-long which was extremely fun for them. She dressed in an elegant Dicken's gown. Not only did she sing the demanding solos beautifully, she was entertaining, engaging, and dynamic for the guests. The host was so delighted that I hired her again for a second house concert for which she had to learn special Spanish Carols and classical pieces in a very short amount of time. That kind of expectation can only be entrusted to a polished professional. She was very impressive! She gave an outstanding performance! She wore an elegant deep red gown appropriate for the formal music. She was graceful & charming. Because of this success, I felt confident to send her out for a solo caroling job for which I received rave reviews! I heard she was asked spontaneously to sing musical theater requests from Phantom of the Opera (which was not part of the program and can only be done with a classically trained voice)...I got reports of thunderous applause after every piece she sang! She went above & beyond - Thank you Gloria!!
Gloria sung a series of arias for my father's 88th birthday party. Her voice is lovely, and her presentation was beautiful!
Talented, comfortable and joyful. Just what we wanted.
