WELL HELLO THERE
MUSIC FOR ANY OCCASION
Let me tell you a little bit about myself.
I have been playing cello since I was the ripe age of 7. I studied at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and Queen's University, Belfast, whilst playing with local event ensembles and teaching cello in local schools.
In 2012, I up sticks and relocated to sunny Perth, Western Australia. Here, I played with the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra, Perth Symphony Orchestra, Fremantle Chamber Orchestra and the West Australian Philharmonic Orchestra, performing with many highly acclaimed musicians, including Olivia Newton John, John Farnham, Tony Hedley and Rudoph Koelman. I also performed with many local event ensembles, such as Dolce Ensembles, Sweethearts Music, Heavenstrings and Les Trois Amies, the latter of which I was a core member. I also performed in my own ensembles: Mill Point Quartet and Cut Common Duo. I have since moved back to Ireland, where I frequently perform with the Ulster Orchestra and RTE orchestras, as well as other Belfast-based event ensembles including The Ulster Quartet, Aria String Quartet, Arco String Quartet, Ionian String Quartet and The Cellists Ensemble. I have recorded on several records for local artists including Malojian, Arborist, Ryan Vail, Ciara O'Neill, Mandy Bingham, Amy Montgomery, Jess McAllister, Sam Wickens, Robocobra Quartet, Phil Kieran, ROE and the Wood Burning Savages, and work regularly with producers such as Declan Legge (Jealous of the Birds) and Declan Gaffney (U2).
But enough about me, how are you?
YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!
How exciting! You must be under a lot of stress. Well, let me help you tick the music off the list of things-to-do. I am able to provide pre-ceremony music at your venue, music throughout your ceremony, whether it be religious or civil, as well as during pre-dinner drinks. I can provide advice on when to have music played during your ceremony and will happily suggest appropriate pieces. However, if you have 'your song' in mind, all you need do is let me know and I will have it ready to melt your heart.
TIP: A STRONG HANDSHAKE SPEAKS VOLUMES
Out for a drink with your colleagues? No problem. Some light background music is just the ticket to lighten the mood and help you forget about work. I have a wide selection of beautiful pieces that will soften the atmosphere, help you and your workmates relax and enjoy your night out.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! MERRY CHRISTMAS! SHHHH, IT'S A SURPRISE ENGAGEMENT ....
Whatever you might be looking music for, I can help. Solo cello is such a wonderful way to add something extra to the occasion you are planning. With such a vast range of repertoire and styles, together we can find just the right soundtrack for you.
