You touched my soul.

If everyone started the day listening to Darlene Koldenhoven's Infinite Voice, there would be no savage breast left un-soothed on the planet.
Beck/Smith (nationally syndicated entertainment newspaper column)
She truly does have an outstanding voice. Oftentimes I look for what I call 'the voice of angels' for the channel. Well, I certainly found one in Darlene. She truly is incredible.

Your CDs (Infinite Voice & Heavenly Peace, sic) are delightfully produced, arranged, and of course, sung! Congratulations on finding a home as a recording artist, and a fellow soprano, with unusual arrangements of familiar repertoire.

I appreciated Tranquil Times serene vibe and the floating feeling I was left with by the end – tranquil times indeed. . . Although Darlene has the voice of an angel, it is wonderful to see her spreading her wings to reveal her other equally impressive musical gifts.
Music and Media Focus, 11/27/2013 & Awareness Magazine 1/5/2014
Rarely have I been so captivated by a singer throughout an entire album. . . Every song on Solitary Treasures is a stunner. . . No matter your musical taste, this is really a winner.

"I remember buying this LP [Clare Fischer's Salsa Picante and 2+2] in the 80’s and being shocked by Clare’s concept of Latin Jazz with voices, he really crafted this sound, and listening to the stratospheric high notes of Darlene Koldenhoven blew my mind!"
