"A Voice to fill Four Rooms"
Gilbert A. Bouchard, Special to the Journal, Edmonton
June 11, 2006

Guilder's debut CD an eclectic mix of operatic arias, pop songs and mom's fave
"Opera Singer Alicia Guilder's inagural CD boasts an impressive range of material and a quirky musical sense of humour.
...Not surprising given her training as an opera singer at the University of Lethbridge and her work with Edmonton Opera as an ensemble performer. The emerging artist's self-titled CD classic is chock-a-block with well-known and beautifully executed opera arias from the likes of Mozart and Puccini as well as more contemporary opera-style numbers like Gershwin's Summertime.

"Alicia in the Sky with Diamonds"

Edmonton June 8 - June 14, 2006

Opera singer aims for pop crossover
"Alicia Guilder is like any other young singer excited at a bourgeoning career.
...I'm also a little panicky at the moment," admits the 26-year-old Fort McMurray native, just in from battling traffic after a long day at work. That's understandable—everything is happening at once. The night before she performed a set at NextFEst, and now she's preparing for her official CD release at Four Rooms this Sunday.
...Yup, sounds like your standard struggling young vocalist makes good story—except that it isn't.
That's because Guilder is a professional opera singer—her chorus roles at the Edmonton Opera include such productions as
Turandot, Madama Butterfly, South Pacific, Lakme, Porgy & Bess, Filumena, and La Boheme. Click HERE for full review.
"Alicia Guilder/The Roxy"
Conor Tavis McNally, Vue Weekly
June 04, 2006

I've never been a fan of "the opera." The air is really stuffy, most of the attendees are older than time itself; you know how it is. Opera music, on the other hand, is oh so much more personable, and once you've stripped away all the f***ing tuxedos and make-up, all you have is the music, which is amazing, especially when the singer is standing five feet away from you. Every time you look up into her eyes you can see that she is crying. Now if that doesn't move you, then you must be Darth Vader, or maybe "No-Heart" from the Care Bears. He was pretty bad too. Anyway, Alicia Guilder held me with her voice and tore me apart with her eyes. This was a thousand times better then any punk show I've ever seen—this is passion, and this is soul. Go find her CD, and think about your life and what you've done. Nothing! You've done nothing!
"Carousing for good causes brings some great results"
Nick Lees, The Edmonton Journal
October 22 2006

Tuesday, Oct. 17: A plethora of fancy adjectives wouldn't describe the evening wear when some 1,000 guests turn out at the Shaw Conference Centre to support the 10th anniversary of the fashion show supporting Compassion House.

Always so many lump-in-the-throat moments. A poignant one was when classical singing student Alicia Guilder, 26, rattles the chandeliers with a couple of numbers and announces she came to support her Ft. McMurray-based mum Nuccia, a three-year cancer survivor.

"I stayed at Sorrentino's Compassion House and, like so many, enjoyed the camaraderie as I went through one of the bleakest spells of my life," she said.
