....I have to tell you I was blown away by your performance. We had many wonderful singers and musicians that week. Yours, by far was the best. Despite difficult working conditions, your voice was phenomenal, in its quality and virtuosity. Your repertoire held the most interest for me, as I have been working on and am growing to love Baroque/early music. So all this was great. But what made this a sublime listening experience was the following. I have never heard anyone else sound like you, or do with their voice what you did. I was transported to another more compelling, more mysterious time space. I was also struck with your distinctly un-diva-like can do positive attitude. I have long suspected that raw talent can stand on its own, without really needing the diva props. Refreshing. I wish you well in all your singing endeavors and look forward to the next time I hear you sing.All the best,

Alyssa is incredible! She has a gorgeous voice that would please any opera afficionado and is so gracious and professional. She also really cares and works hard for her clients- my friend was getting married and she went out of her way for her singing outside in the middle of winter after a blizzard so that my friend could have her dream of an outdoor winter wedding. She also found her a great harpist through her connections. I would hire her again in ten seconds and I highly recommend her to anyone! Feel free to email me if you would like to hear more about how wonderful she is!

Alyssa did an incredible job at my wedding. She sang Ave Maria as my processional and everyone raved about how beautiful it was. It was incredibly moving and truly made my wedding ceremony amazing! Thank you! -Laura J, Fredericksburg, VA
Alyssa had the MOST BEAUTIFUL voice and made our ceremony feel so personal. Our guests raved about her for long after the wedding and the organist from our church told us she was one of her favorite musicians she has worked with in the 25+ years she's been at the church. She also got Alyssa's card to recommend her to other brides. She's the BEST!

Our service took place on the very day that Hurricane Sandy was fast approaching our location. Alyssa arrived precisely when expected. We were overwhelmed by her performance. ~ Her rendition of "Going Home" by Dvorak was beyond remarkable. Alyssa brought incredible emotional expression to the song with her powerful, yet angelic voice. ~ We received many compliments on her performance. ~ I wish to add that prior to the service Alyssa responded quickly to our concerns and generously provided her wisdom. Her knowledge and advice helped us to create a very successful program. ~ A most lovely person. ~ An exceptionally beautiful voice. ~ With gratitude

She was great! While practicing before mass, my husband tells me our best man thought she was a recording. Alyssa has a beautiful voice. She was easily accessible via email when I had questions and was willing to work with us on the music selections. She worked well with the organist at our church as well as with my husband's family members, who played trumpet/flute and viola for our ceremony. I would definitely recommend Alyssa to anyone looking to hire someone professional and talented! Thanks Alyssa! Gina Trasatti-Parisi -Patti T, Philadelphia, PA -Wedding
Alyssa went above and beyond to help prepare music for my wedding. Alyssa is a beautiful artist and person. The recording on the web doesn't do Alyssa justice. I would highly recommend Alyssa for any engagement. J
-Jacintha M, Orwigsburg, PA- Wedding
Ms Staron performed two pieces ("Going Home", and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow") a capella as part of a memorial service. She has a strong and rich voice, lovely phrasing, and delivered both pieces in a tempo and with coloring that was perfectly suited to the occasion. She is quite a talented singer.
-Bruce G, Whiting, NJ - Memorial Service
I wish I could rate her a 10!!! She was fabulous! Everyone raved! Thank you so much Alyssa! -Peggy S, Vineland, NJ
My mother, sister and I were very graciously treated to a surprise private performance by Alyssa in honor of my mother's 90th birthday. Alyssa took our collective breaths away. She so impressed us with her charm, demeanor and, of course, her beautiful voice. The sheer joy of watching and listening to her sing brought tears of joy to our eyes. She is simply a delight!
-Chris H, Philadelphia, PA- Birthday
Alyssa was such a pleasure to work with and she made the whole process seamless! She was very familiar with the order of the Mass, and she worked with me on our music choices (she knew what was and was not allowed in the Church). Her “Ave Maria” is easily the most beautiful version I have ever heard. She is so talented, professional and brought our wedding experience to the next level. I received so many compliments after the ceremony. I would most definitely consider her for future events and would highly recommend her for any kind of engagement. Her beautiful voice was one of the highlights of our ceremony and helped create memories for a lifetime! -Ashley K, Philadelphia, PA
Alyssa was an absolute blessing and a dream come true to work with! I hired her to sing "Ave Maria" as I walked down the aisle at my wedding, and she went above and beyond for me. She visited my house to sing for me and ensure that we were all on the same page about everything. She stayed in communication with me via email leading up to the wedding, and she even attended the rehearsal. The day of the wedding she sounded like an absolute ANGEL!!! Her voice is truly blessed by God, and I feel so lucky she shared her gift with me. It made my walk down the aisle so magical. I am eternally grateful. Thank you, Alyssa! -Melissa G, Camden, NJ
Alyssa gave a phenomenal performance at my wedding. Many of my guests are saying that their favorite part about my wedding was the classical music. Alyssa is highly professional and has great appearance that fits her genre of music as well. As a bride, I feel fantastic to have chosen Alyssa to perform at my wedding. Job well done Alyssa. Among all of my vendors, she was the best to work with. She is very accommodating and does her best to meet any requests. She is also very punctual. I will certainly recommend Alyssa to my friends and family for other upcoming events. My wedding planner also enjoyed working with her. A+++
-Francesca L, Garfield, NJ - Wedding Reception
We would rate her a perfect 10. Professional, a beautiful voice, would recommend her for anyone needing a high quality singer. We listened to several wedding singers and audition 8, she was the best by far. Our guests at our 50th Anniversary Mass were very impressed. Thank you Alyssa
-Richard G, Philadelphia, PA - Anniversary
A life-long lover of music, I wanted nothing more than to give my mom the gift of song at her funeral today. Alyssa was that gift. Her voice is beautiful and so is her heart. Alyssa's magnificent voice, professionalism, dependability, and willingness to go above and beyond, is what puts Alyssa head of the rest. We hired Alyssa during a time of profound sadness; a time when even minor decisions seemed too much to grasp; sensing that, Alyssa took control and very simply said "don't worry, everything will be beautiful." And it was. Thank you Alyssa, I know my mom is smiling.
-Aileen E, Bath, PA - Funeral
She was fabulous...most accommodating, always responsive to my emails/requests....guests raved about her all afternoon at the reception...I can't recommend her highly enough
-Meredith B, Washington, DC- Wedding
Alyssa was absolutely wonderful to work with and her beautiful voice made our wedding ceremony so special and memorable for both my husband and I, as well as our guests! Alyssa helped me to craft our ceremony music, which was incredibly helpful, and she was very proactive in working with my violinist and organist. All in all, she made my ceremony music something I simply didn't need to worry about. Perhaps more importantly, she has an absolutely beautiful and majestic voice that our guests are still raving about, a week and a half after the wedding!!!
-Katie Y, Lancaster, PA - Wedding
Alyssa exceeded my expectations not only was her voice wonderful- her personality is a joy. She is a gift - her singing is pure and makes you feel like you are in a cathedral. She explained the history of each piece and really gave us a full appreciation for the music. I will recommend her with the highest reviews!
-Tammie V, Washington, DC - Party
Alyssa has a beautiful voice, I can't count the number of people who came to me at the reception to tell me as much! She was the epitomy of professionalism, staying in contact and doing what ever needed to be done to help accommodate me! My husband I couldn't have been any happier with the wonderful job that Alyssa did, and we would recommend to her to friends in the future! Thank you, Michele & Mark Flamini
-Michele S, Paulsboro, NJ– Wedding
Alyssa was great. She met with me and went over everything prior to the wedding, and a week before my wedding when the church objected to a song selection, Alyssa helped me make another selection. She was wonderful to work with, and her voice was amazing.
-Ivory D, Philadelphia, PA– Wedding
It was an absolute dream to work with Alyssa for our Catholic wedding liturgy. Not only is Alyssa energetic and delightful to get to know, her gift of song made our wedding celebration more than we could have dreamed. Alyssa is super responsive and professional, providing thoughtful and constructive recommendations to help our liturgy become more prayerful and beautiful, and our other musicians loved working with her, too. We highly recommend Alyssa to any couple who wants to work with someone truly talented and who clearly loves and delights in sharing her gift of song with others. Thank you, Alyssa! You made our wedding liturgy truly beautiful. We are so grateful.
-Erin M, Bryn Mawr, PA
Alyssa has a very beautiful voice. Her performance during our wedding ceremony was outstanding, especially when she performed an amazing and very beautiful Schubert's Ave Maria. Alyssa was very accommodating during the music selection process, giving us excellent recommendations and guidance on music choices. The selection process was very smooth and time efficient. She was easily accessible via email or a phone call away. She worked very well with the pianist at our church, making coordination arrangements simple and straight forward. I definitely recommend Alyssa to anyone looking for a professional and talented soloist! Thank you so much Alyssa! Erin & Jorge
- Jorge L R, Trenton, NJ - Wedding
Alyssa Staron is a true professional, both talent and in service. She made our wedding ceremony magical! Her exquisite voice sounded angelic. In preparation for the ceremony, she was very tenacious and well-organized handling all details directly with the music director and making some excellent recommendations. I can truly say that Alyssa gave a stellar performance, above anything imaginable.
- Martina M, Paoli, PA - Wedding
I could not have been happier with Alyssa. Her recordings on her website don't do her justice! Not only did she do an incredible job with the Catholic mass, she was an absolute pleasure to work with planning the music. Highly recommended!
- Ann G, Philadelphia, PA - Wedding
Alyssa Staron is a talented professional. Her voice quality was beautiful. She was accommodating, pleasant and flexible. She was extremely helpful in helping me to select songs for the occasion as well as providing English translations. We had a power outage in the middle of her performance but she she never missed a note and continued with the aid of a flashlight. My son and daughter-in-law will long remember their 20th anniversary celebration because of Alyssa's performance. My guests and I truly enjoyed her performance. I would recommend her to others and would certainly request her for future engagements.
-Ramona B, Philadelphia, PA - Anniversary, Private Voice Recital
Alyssa came to my home to sing for my parents retirement party. Alyssa was just wonderful all around. From the very start she accommodated my special requests for song choices. She was very prompt in returning e-mails. She arrived right on time and had her music all prepared so I didn't need to do anything! She introduced every song and was very well spoken. My parents & guests were thrilled Her voice was amazing to say the least. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!
-Adrienne D, Philadelphia, PA - Party
Alyssa was wonderful!! She was so great to work with. I received so many raves after the wedding. Someone said it sounded like angels were singing in the choir loft.
-Beth S, Philadelphia, PA - Wedding
Alyssa Staron is an amazing singer. Great communication!! I had a million and one questions about songs and when to sing them. She knew everything.

My sister in law is getting married next her and will be contacting her ASAP to sing for her. GREAT JOB!!!
