I am a professional Opera Singer who loves to sing not only classical music, but also pop-classical (think Andrea Bocelli and Josh Goban) and Standards (Sinatra and Michael Buble). I perform at all kinds of events such as weddings, corporate parties, fashion shows, dinner parties, memorial services, etc. I have performed in Opera productions around the world, as well as events in - Houston - BVI - Valle Monte - Supper Club SF... I would love to perform at your special event. Please check me out on - YouTube and Yelp. And of course feel free to contact me for more information :)
Mette just could not have done a better job for our daughter's wedding. His fabulous voice made the wedding ceremony the most special ever. I could not reccomend him more highly.
Surpassed expectations. Our residents and their family members, staff, etc., all loved the performance. Beautiful voice, professional performance, highly recommend!
The most awesome professional/performer. We are already planning another event to include him.
From the first phone call I made to Mete, Mete made it easy. I was planning a funeral mass for my father during an emotional time for me with a very short timeline. Mete was right there answering my questions and being very sensitive to my feelings that were all over the place. He also followed up to ensure all the details were correct. He allowed us as a family to honor our father with lovely music. Mete's voice was rich and beautiful. Having him sing brought an entire new dimension to the mass, a solemnity but at the same time uplifting. When he sang it truly lifted us. We wanted this mass to be special and having Mete perform the music did just that. He was on time, there were no glitches; he was professional. I recommend Mete for any event that requires a professional with a magnificent voice. I cannot thank him enough or say enough good things about him for making this important occasion special.
My husband and I booked Mete as the sole performer for a dinner opera night fundraiser for our school at our home. Our guests were enthralled by his incredibly beautiful voice, his charm and his all around great performance and charisma. It has been six months and people are still talking about Mete. I have booked him again for a special event next month and I am now checking his availability for a Centennial Ball that I am working on for next year. Mete adds class and elegance to every event he is associated with. Mete is mesmerizing!
Response from Mete Tasin:
It was a pleasure! Thank you so much for your kind words, I really appreciated it.
Can't wait to see you again soon :)
Having Mete sing at my mother-in-law's 94th birthday made it so much more special. The song choices were perfect and his presentation and persona I think really mesmerized our group. I am so glad to have had Mete for this event. I am sure he will be receive bookings from having performed for us yesterday.
Response from Mete Tasin:
Thank you so much! It was a honor to be part of your special day :) hope to see you soon again ;)
Mete performed at my mother's memorial service and everyone was amazed at his skill - even the young people gasped and said "I've never heard anything like that before!" He had us all in tears, it was so beautiful. What a voice!!
