Ms. Russo is a complete artist, able to blend genres and styles with an authentic Italian touch. Her vivid interpretations of both classical and modern songs show how an advanced vocal technique such as hers can naturally express different feelings and intense emotions while leading the listener through a variety of exciting musical adventures.

Elisabetta is gifted with a disarmingly beautiful and lyrical voice. The guests at UKRO's fundraising dinner at the Beverly Hilton were blown away and delighted at her amazing and heartfelt rendition of "La Vie En Rose". She is a simply wonderful soprano in addition to being a very beautiful lady. She can handle popular and operatic music with equal grace. She sings with remarkable and memorable emotion.

I have always admired Elisabetta Russo for her superb vocal abilities and technique.
Her music knowledge is deep and solid as her performance qualities.
It was a honor and a pleasure when, recently, she asked me to arrange "Pietà, Signore" by Alessandro Stradella for her to sing during a special concert in Napoli - Italy.
I look forward to more collaborations in the future.
Elisabetta Russo is one of the most talented, fun and passionate professionals that I have
worked with. She is not only technically gifted as a singer but has a marvelous vision of the
music she performs.
In addition to that she is a warm and understanding colleague, with a particular ability to
bring out the best in people.
Elisabetta and I have known each other for almost fifteen years and have performed a
variety of pieces, ranging from famous works of the great masters to lesser-known pieces,
and I have invariably been impressed by her competence, passion and curiosity.
Miss Russo is without a doubt one of the best singers of her generation and I have always
truly enjoyed working with her.

The first time I heard Elisabetta sing I thought I had dreamt that voice. It was so beautiful, so natural, and yet too perfect to be true. Her voice has the depth and the warmth, the colors and the strength that make you shiver. Her voice touches you deeply, pulls you from within. It was impossible to refrain the tears. I had witnessed a miracle. And I feel the same every time I hear her sing.

Elisabetta Russo is one of my favorite soprano vocalists. She possesses an incredibly pure and expressive voice that can float to the heavens and soar to the moon. Miss Russo's musicianship is superior in training and taste, plus her technique is flawless. She sings music from multiple centuries and in multiple languages with effortless and passion. I really enjoy working and performing with Elisabetta Russo because she is a true artist and a true professional.

Elisabetta is incredible!
As the Executive Director of Caterina’s Club, I had the chance to work with her more than once, singing for our biggest fundraiser of the year. Her performances always end with standing ovations. Elisabetta’s personality and her music bring moments of joy to all in attendance. I am definitely looking forward to seeing her again soon.
