"A SONDHEIM SERENADE" - Maria Damore takes us to the world of Stephen Sondheim in "A Sondheim Serenade." We'll journey Into the Woods and to the Forum as we share in the Passion and Follies of Sondheim's fascinating characters. We'll meet on Sunday in the Park With George and "attend the tale of" Sweeney Todd. Merrily We'll Roll Along in the Company of Maria Damore's powerful and expressive vocals. Come smell the fragrant Evening Primrose and listen to A Little Night Music in this wonderful time of storytelling through song. You might even meet Dick Tracy!

"JAZZ ON BROADWAY" - Maria Damore sings wonderful jazz gems from the Broadway stage as she melds two of America's most popular musical forms together with style and panache. As a singer, Maria readily shares her great vocal prowess and two and a half octave range with her audiences. As an actress, she interprets each lyric as she embodies a song. Accompanied by piano, drums, sax, bass.

"THE MUSIC OF ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER" - Maria Damore will enchant and captivate you as she sings the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber. She is an incredibly versatile performer with a soaring soprano voice that can handle the diverse demands of Evita, Cats, and Phantom of the Opera with ease.

"SPIRITUAL JAZZ" is a concert Maria began formulating after having been a part of the choir which presented Duke Ellington's sacred pieces during the Clifford Brown Jazz Festival in Wilmington several years ago. It was first presented during the 2008 Berks Jazz Fest in Reading, PA at the glorious First Baptist Church in downtown Reading. This concert was part of the afternoon vesper service and provided a joyful and uplifting message for those in attendance. The program includes traditional hymns arranged in a light jazz style, gospel pieces, and several of Duke Ellington's inspiring sacred pieces, written for his Sacred concerts in the 1960s.

Maria is such an amazing all-around person and performer! She has been so patient working with a particular song list that we discussed on and off for 8 months prior to the performance. She was willing and able to perform every song that I requested that she was able to get a song track for. She was willing to drive 8 hrs (10 with traffic) for my surprise 50th birthday party for my partner. She was extremely accomodating for anything requested. She performed and dressed for our Broadway theme. We had many people compliment how wonderful her voice sounded and asked for her information. Her on-line music samples and picture do not do justice to her. She's Great

We had never met Maria Damore until she came to the ceremony, but we were very happy with her and her performance. Not only did she do an excellent job singing the songs, we asked her to sing a song she had never performed before and she blew us away. Maria had to go out of her way to get the background tracks for the song and came to the wedding early to meet with the DJ and give him the tracks so he could prepare. We highly recommend Maria Damore as a singer to anyone who is looking for a professional for their wedding or any other party.

Maria Damore and her team of musicians were phenomenal. She is a true professional. Even with only a few weeks notice she was able to coordinate our entire music program. When I entered the church on my wedding day and heard Maria's larger than life voice I felt chills run up my spine. It was Maria's talent that set the tone for our entire event. Our guests are still raving over her amazing performance and we will be talking about her for years to come.
