Cristina is an engaging singer. Her songs sung in French and Italian were superb. Cristina draws the audience into her performance not only with her voice but with her expressions and feelings. I highly recommend Cristina to anyone that appreciates opera.

Christina was a spectacular entertainer. Her vocal style, knowledge of a variety of cultural songs and musical versatility was outstanding. Our resident community commended her interaction with them as well as the overall quality of the performance. Many of our Italian community, families and residents, remarked how "it was as though they were at the Opera". The birthday celebrant as well as her family stated that "not only was the show superb, but after the program, Christina took the time to engage with our family in dialogue about the birthday event and positive life experiences". We would gratefully welcome her back. Thank you Gigmasters.
