Christina was phenomenal!! Very professional and extremely accommodating. Our event was not her normal or usual venue, however she treated our teachers to an amazing performance as if she were at Carnegie Hall!! They could not be happier and I was extremely satisfied with everything she did for us. She made our Italian inspired Teachers’s appreciation luncheon a tremendous success!!
