The Durham Violinist - Solo Violinist Feedback

We were absolutely delighted with the service provided to us for our Wedding Ceremony. From first point of contact she has been extremely quick to respond and has a great depth of experience, not just musically but with the finer details too that made it easy for us to know that this was exactly what we were after. There was a vast repertoire to choose from and we were delighted that Emma had no problem catering for the more personal song choices we had for during our ceremony. If you are still trying to decide on whether this is what you are looking for, do not hesitate anymore, you won't regret it. Once again thank you for a magical performance that sits fondly in the memories of our perfect day.

Ger & Emma,

I booked this violinist to play at my birthday party. We had 100 guests, many of whom were not familiar with her music. They were enchanted with the quality of the playing, the repertoire and the originality of my choice for background music. She was certainly a huge hit. She was very professional- arriving in good time and offering to play two sets to fit in with the serving of the buffet. I left the choice of music up to her and it was perfect. Easy to listen to, very enjoyable - suitable for all tastes. She pitched it perfectly- people could listen but also chat with friends. The music complemented the evening, it didn't overshadow the night. I would certainly recommend.

Great violinist for my wedding in February. Very professional and would highly recommend.

Katie Seager-Smith, (February, 2019)

Amazing! If I could give 100 stars I would! I knew from day one how I wanted my wedding day to go and it was an amazing day. All my guests have asked who was playing the violin. Absolutely amazing.
