Tóra is a professional singer, classically trained at the Birmingham Conservatoire where she specialised in Opera. She is now based in Stratford Upon Avon. She sings in a variety of styles, using high quality backing tracks, from opera and classical crossover, to musical theatre, 1940's, vintage songs, and beyond!
Tóra is a popular feature at corporate events, functions and concerts, due to her friendly yet professional presentation. Whether your event is in a large venue, or a small intimate space, Tóra is happy to provide what you need. As there is a growing trend for entertainment before and after dinner, you could start the evening with Tóra singing classics in a delightfully unobtrusive manner as your guests arrive, perfectly complimenting any atmosphere. Or should you want to treat your guests to something a little special, Tóra can provide operatic entertainment centre stage after dinner, delighting your guests with well known and popular operatic arias. Should you require a vintage theme, Tóra can provide music from the 'War Years', mixed with more modern musical theatre songs to leave you singing on your way home! This also comes with vintage outfit and set up. All music and timings will be discussed in advance to ensure everything runs smoothly and is a success.
Your wedding day is the most special day of your life, an occasion to be shared with your closest friends and family. A soprano soloist can add an extra charm to your day, in a civil ceremony or a church service. Whether you require singing during the ceremony, as your guests arrive, or during the reception, Tóra is able to provide the music which will make your day as special as it can be. She is happy to learn any new song which may have a personal meaning for you as a couple.

Victoria had prepared well for the day and had done her best to prepare all the tracks requested by the family. She had a smile on her face from the moment she arrived and mixed well with all the guests. Her singing as expected was of a high standard and enjoyed by all. The best complement I can pay her is the fact that some of the younger guests (in their 20`s) and who had previously pronounced that they didn't like opera thoroughly enjoyed the experience stating that their favourite tracks were from operas. Victoria opened up a few closed minds. Good work!. It was also appreciated that she didn`t rush off after her set, but instead stayed for the champagne toast to my mother (90th birthday)

As the entertainment manager of a Black Country beer festival, it was up to me to find acts who would be of interest to attendees. Tóra's performance caught my eye (ok, ears) but was potentially a gamble as we’d never had anyone similar. Nevertheless, gamble I did.
She arrived early, delightfully welcoming and set up quickly with our engineer. And then she began. WOW! It was absolutely incredible. Often festival performances may be seen as “background entertainment” but she stopped people dead in her tracks. I’ve never seen such interest and awe by attendees. Even the regional secretary (who isn’t shy in coming forward), said to me several months later, “That young lady who sang moved to me to tears. I’ve been to many beer festivals, seen many acts and she was by-far the best I’ve ever seen.” High praise but a reflection of many people’s opinion. She got a huge round of applause at the end, with many attendees coming up to pass her thanks. Throughout the day I received about a dozen or so compliments to her performance.
An absolute professional with an incredible vocal range, flexible to the music selection and a genuinely wonderful person to work with (I can compare to many in the past who are quite the opposite). My only regret is that it’s made the task of trying to find acts that are even better for the future, nigh on impossible.

Well gather lilacs
Can't help loving that man of mine
I don't know how to love him
Another suitcase in another hall
