Performance review for Alison Saunders:
"A famous vocal coach once said " the real test of a singer is not only their technical excellence, but also how convincingly they convey the meaning and the pathos of a song". Alison Saunders qualifies on both counts, particularly the latter with her beautiful rendition of Roger's, My Funny Valentine - absolutely priceless for its simplicity and poignancy. Yes, Alison performed with distinction on the more esoteric works such as Verdure Clad from Haydn's The Creation and duets with Robert Pyper, Mein Madel Hat Einen Rosemund by Brahms, Gershwin's Bess You is my Woman and Phyllis and Strephthon from Iolanthe."
Alison beautifully delivered a passionate aria under the glistening winter stars at my recent 50th birthday party. Her harmonious, soprano voice and visual representation of this classical song captured and delighted the gathering of family and friends.
This was a memorable highlight of my birthday celebrations, delighting me with her ardent rendition which took us on a musical journey filled with emotion. Maria
Death of a family member is one of the most distressing times for a family. When planning my dad’s funeral, my mum asked if Alison would be available at short notice to sing one of her and dads favourite songs, Alison didn’t hesitate. It wasn’t a song Alison had sung previously but she learnt it overnight. It just meant so much to us all to have such a personal touch added to my dad’s funeral. Alison sang “Memories” so beautifully it lifted me on a day that was so very difficult. Alison is so committed to her craft and her commitment to it shows in every song that she performs. Thanks Alison for the beautiful gift that is your voice. Dallas
