Carla Rigolin Hassett

Vocal Coach comments from Jenn Bostic

I love the attitude in your vocal Carla. The little moments of grit you’re adding in are what makes a vocal interesting and engaging. Your tone is beautiful and you use it well with really great dynamic variations. It’s obvious you love what you do and you’re really great at it. I’m amazed at how much energy you’re able to communicate seated on a stool. Wonderful job!

Why I chose Carla Rigolin Hassett as a Finalist

I have chosen Carla Rigolin Hassett to go forward in the VoiceCouncil competition because of her well-crafted and versatile vocal performance filled with passion.
