I am a mezzo who loves to snag opera, musical theatre, show tunes and standards. I have sung at wedding, funerals, dinner parties, receptions and special events. I have sung with opera companies throughout the country including, Center City Opera Theatre, Delaware Valley Opera Company and Manhattan Opera
Lisa Mezzo entertained us at my husband’s 70th birthday party. She was wonderful, singing opera and broadway tunes. Lisa was very professional, dressed beautifully, and showed up exactly on time. The guests loved her and I would highly recommend her for any event.
Response from Maja Lisa Mezzo:
We hosted a birthday party at our home and Maja Lisa's performance made the evening so special, especially for the person who loved opera the most. She sang beautifully and prefaced each song with a short introduction that made the performance more fun and accessible for everyone.
Response from Maja Lisa Mezzo:
Maja Lisa was very professional and we worked well together. Everything was as I expected and more.
Thank you Maja Lisa!
Maja performed at my wedding and was fantastic! The tone of her voice fit perfectly with the room size. The best thing about Maja is that her face emotes the feeling of the songs. It draws you in. There wasn't a dry eye in the congregation.
And she was on time! True professional.
