Marie-Claire is a professional classically trained mezzo-soprano.
In addition to her BA in music and multiple awards and scholarships, for more than ten years she has been hired for weddings, funerals, social events, concerts and private functions. If you're organizing anything that needs entertainment, she can be there! Marie-Claire can serenade guests with beautiful opera, jazz it up with some standards, take out the Broadway faves or sing praise with religious music.
We booked Marie Claire to sing at my father in laws funeral.
She suggested a piano player to accompany her and it was a great idea as Marie-Claire and Marie arrived on time, were professional and sounded amazing.
We would absolutely hire them again for any event.
We hired Marie last minute for an engagement event. She drove over an hour and sang her heart out. I would highly recommend
We invited Marie-Claire to lead the small choir at our wedding mass at Holy Family Church. She arrived on time, and helped prep my other friends in the choir. She sang every song we requested beautifully, and many people at the wedding commented on what a wonderful soloist we had! She sang Vivaldi, Schubert, among other gregorian chants from the mass ordinary (in latin!) We highly recommend Marie-Claire as a soloist - she is a highly skilled soprano with a voice that we've never heard before! And on top of that - all for an excellent price considering she drove 2 hours to get to the church!!
Marie-Claire is a beautiful young lady with a very talented voice. She worked well under pressure and helped out tremendously with little communication during my event. Vips were late and Marie-Claire without asking spaced out here set to keep the guests interested and entertained. I would hire her again, wish I had more time to speak with her on a personal level. Money well spent. She is a definite hire. Ed James.
Marie-Claire came to perform at our Retirement Home in Cambridge, ON. She sang some old time show tunes and it was a complete hit. Both our elderly residents and guests loved her performance. Her voice is fabulous and keeps you captivated at every moment. It was such a blessed and a joy for everyone to have Marie-Claire perform and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
