(Susan Sevier) You might ask what is a "mezzo-contralto"?  Not a common term these days, but in days gone by used to refer to voices such as those of Maria Malibran, voices that possessed the heft and darkness of the contralto timbre combined with the agility and range of the more typical mezzo-soprano voice.

"I've thought that ever since you started Singer Source -- what an important service to the DC choral world.  I always tell people about hiring a tenor for New Year's Eve something like 25 years ago, and he didn't even want to see the music ahead of time.  It was Elliott Carter, Charles Ives, Woollen, and Evett -- really hard stuff.  I said this man is either an unbelievably skilled musician or totally crazy.  HE WAS AMAZING!!  Bless you!"

"Over the past three years Lisa Koehler and her company, SingerSource, LLC, have been an indispensable resource for me in accomplishing my goals as music director at a small Episcopal Parish with minimal choral resources.  Whether my need is for a substitute singer to support congregational singing with a simple anthem, or for a solo voice for a specific work, Lisa’s experience as a singer and professional church musician and her knowledge of the D.C. area talent base is an invaluable part of my tool chest of resources.  She knows the literature and the singers who can sing it best for my particular situation.  The ability to speak with Lisa directly when necessary helps to provide the confidence that I will be contracting the right person for the engagement.  Her personable demeanor and knowledge base make Lisa my “go to” person when I need to contract outside singers.  I heartily recommend her company and the services that it provides".

"I have now completed auditions, as of today,  for the alto section leader at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Alexandria, so please remove the advertisement for this from Singer Source.   I had a large number of candidates audition thanks to your wonderful resource.  There’s nothing like this resource and few candidates for church positions in Richmond where I worked for many years.   You provide a truly valuable service. Many thanks".

"Lisa Koehler and Singer Source provide a tremendous service to both singers and directors. She works hard to connect musicians who might otherwise have no way to find each other and seems to have an intuitive understanding of the needs of both parties. She is reliable, responsive, and unflappable. I feel very fortunate to have her help in finding contract and sub work."   ~  Bob Schiff, baritone

"Singer Source is the No. 1 resource for accessing first-class singing talent.  Not only does Lisa match up just the right talent with your event, she does it quickly and professionally.  Sometimes having the right singer quickly is just as critical as having one at all.  Lisa always comes through." Carol Anderson, Anderson Communications
