I recently asked my carolers if they would be willing to write testimonials for this recruitment site, and within hours I had about half a dozen! Names are removed for privacy, but please see what current TOR carolers say about singing for the company:
"Terrific caroling company to sing with! Colleen is extremely well-organized and professional, great at communicating, very thoughtful of singers and clients, and quick to pay. The caroling itself is all the more rewarding because she sets exacting high standards for every aspect of the work. Can't be beat!" — M, alto
"Colleen is highly organized, sets clear and reasonable expectations, and communicates well. You can tell that what drives her to do this work is that she genuinely loves Christmas music. I enjoyed singing for The Other Reindeer during the 2015 holiday season and hope that my schedule permits me to do the same this year too." — A, tenor
"This coming Christmas season will be my 4th year with 'The Other Reindeer.' I consider myself a little bit of a 'mom' of the group - only because of my age - certainly not because of any superior musical ability. These people are really good! I had the opportunity to do a lot of studio work when I was younger and absolutely loved it. So singing with this group of men and women is so vocally satisfying and continues to challenge me in my sight reading big time! The charts are fun and fresh and I so enjoy getting out there in the community or at private parties and singing the songs of the season with such wonderful singers. Our fearless leader, Colleen, is a stellar arranger, impeccable director, and an administrator extraordinaire. TOR is a great caroling company!" — D, soprano
