Diane Fox (Teacher) has won critics with her compelling performances in the dramatic mezzo soprano repertoire.
“Singing that rarely featured contralto role is Diane Fox who, as the Princess, magnificently duets with soprano Karole Lewis, in this priceless soprano/contralto masterpiece. Their exquisite voices make me wish there were more fine roles for voices that great!" — Art Ritchie, Community Contributor and "Mezzo soprano Diane Fox gave a galvanic reading of 'Adieu forets' from Tchaikovsky's Maid of Orléans. With her flaming red hair and taste for the large gesture, she appears ready to take on the most dramatic roles in the repertoire.” — Peter Spencer, The Star Ledger.
