(She/Her/Ella) "Chapa’s exquisite, velvety voice was a pleasure to hear throughout. Her superb breath control, fluid legato, and responsive phrasing was shaped by an unostentatious sensibility and unmistakable polish. Her careful nuancing in the 'Lux aeterna' did not seem to pray for the light so much as be it." - Edward Forstman, artsBHAM
