The Leicester Violinist - Solo Violinist

This professional violinist offers both Bollywood music and Western classical and popular repertoire specialising in weddings and events across Leicester, the Midlands and beyond, playing acoustically or on electric violin with backing tracks.

She studied Violin at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and has since worked as a violinist in London, across the UK and abroad. This has included work for the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra,  the Royal Philharmonic and BBC Symphony Orchestras, English National Ballet, West End shows, recording sessions and for stars such as Barbra Streisand and Vanessa Mae.

Now living in Leicestershire, she has launched herself as a solo performer providing high quality live music at weddings, corporate functions and other events. Whether classical, pop, jazz, Latin, folk, film themes or Bollywood, she plays music of many different genres, enjoying making her own mark on each style.

Once booked, she will get in touch before the event to plan with you or to advise you on your choice of music. This can be left to her discretion but a rehearsal meet-up is available if you would like more guidance. She can usually accommodate special requests that she doesn't already have in her repertoire list. 

“We saw you play at Leicester Tigers and you were amazing. You are the only thing so far my husband to be has said he wants at the wedding!”

The Leicester Violinist - Solo Violinist Feedback

This Act's Average Star Rating

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. I loved having you play me down the aisle, as well as bringing my own great grandfather’s composition (for solo violin) to life. This was such a special part of our wedding and the only time that many of my own family had heard this piece played!

Sarah,

I just wanted to thank you for playing violin at our wedding. I thought it would be a nice touch but it turned out to be a really fantastic addition to the day. Everyone we talk to was truly blessed by your playing, as we were, so thanks a million.

John and Angie,

Thank you very much for your wonderful playing at our wedding. It meant so much to me to walk up the aisle to a piece I love, played so beautifully by you.

Hannah,

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. It was so special and meant such a lot to us. It added a really beautiful element to our ceremony and many of our guests commented on what a lovely treat it was to listen to you as we signed the registers!

Anne,

You were fantastic! I’m sure you will get the best exhibitor award – I voted for you! I love the violin but didn’t think it would be possible at my wedding until I saw you play Bollywood!

Delia,

Thanks so much for playing at our wedding. I loved your playing of Adele in the signing of the register - one of my highlights of the day!

Rosie,

Thank you so much. It was all just so wonderful to listen to. As predicted I didn’t get to hear much of the Bruch but the effect of those opening bars on leaving was enough to stir my soul and make the day so memorable. There were nothing but positive comments from everyone so feel very proud of a job well done. The personal personal touches we added, of which your performances were a huge part, made the day really special and the whole family feel that we “did Dad Proud”. I hope not to be planning any more funerals in the future but you will definitely be my goto girl for upcoming violinist needs!..

Paul,

The Leicester Violinist - Solo Violinist Set Up

She will arrive with her own PA equipment and a wireless microphone so that, if the amplified option is chosen, she can move freely, serenade tables or be in a processional. Alternatively, she can be linked with the sound system of the venue. 

She sources high quality backing tracks to accompany the violin or she can play on her own for a more intimate atmosphere.
