“Miss El-Khoury’s vocal instrument is of the Ghena Dimitrova variety. Superbly technically schooled with excellent volume, owning that undefinable vibrato one heard only from the late Miss Dimitrova. This is a vocal instrument which has no issue soaring above all else in ensemble, and the most demanding orchestrations.”
