CD: Swim Kiss

What others are saying...

Whether she is singing for my Musicales concerts, presenting a voice workshop for my choirs, or teaching an eager student, Amber Nicole Dilger has always impressed me with her skill and dedication.  But what sets her apart from the many fine musicians with whom I work is her indefatigable joy.

-Dan Broner, Music Director for First Unitarian Society, Madison, Wisconsin

The score is challenging, and handled expertly by both Dilger and pianist Mark Wurzelbacher. As a result, the moments when Sarah Jane is speaking and singing merge together seamlessly. Dilger's strong, clear soprano sails easily through the phrases, highlighting her character's naturally cheerful disposition and youthful naiveté. ...Many of the complicated emotions of a conflicted military wife come through in performance, and that, in conjunction with Dilger and Wurzelbacher's masterful musical talents, makes the evening worthwhile.

James and the Giant Peach
This production saves its vilification for James' twisted aunts, presented with wacky weirdness by Amber Nicole Dilger (Spiker) and Jenny Wanasek (Sponge). They sing delightful music-hall numbers from an excellent score...

- Mike Fischer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Her lilting, clarion soprano was always perfect, both in pitch and the embodiment of her character.  Dilger managed to create a real flesh-and-blood human being.

- Rick Reed, Windy City Times

Guenevere, played by Amber Nicole Dilger, was simply exquisite.  She has a bell-like voice and is a lively, convincing actress.  Her "Simple Joys of Maidenhood" was a comic tour-de-force.

Arlington (one woman show) made The Cap Times list!  Best of theater 2016: The year in 12 shows in Madison (and beyond)

Arlington soon becomes clear Sara Jane's chatter is simply a mental trick to dance around the edges of her rapidly fraying reality. ...As her sunny demeanor gives way to doubt and a healthy shot of bourbon, the changes are reflected in Dilger's facial expressions, vocal tone and demeanor. ...Dilger's voice is strong and sweet, and the passages that let her stretch it are the show's strongest.

- Aaron R. Conklin, Madison Magazine

What a pleasure to watch an exceptionally talented soprano like Amber Nicole Dilger embody bubbly, sweet Sara Jane...

- Lindsay Christians, The Capital Times

Sweeney Todd
...and Amber Nicole Dilger as Johanna, are strong and well-matched in their acting and singing, both handling the difficult Sondheim melodies with ease...

- Bill Beard, Stateline News

The Elephant Man
Dilger gave a spirited performance, handling the most  intimate scenes with poise and grace.  

- Delonda Hartmann, Muncie Star Press
