Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

I can include a pianist if asked in advance.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Contact me as soon as you can. If timings change slightly in the run-up to the event make sure you let me know.

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually I need 10 minutes if without a sound system to tune my instrument and test out the acoustics of the environment.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Of course! I am happy to chat through and find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I will bring a music stand and additional outdoor equipment. I will need shelter if playing violin outdoors to protect the instrument, for example a marquee.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn we are happy to do this for you for a small additional cost.

The Amadeus Orchestra delivered a stunning performance cleverly tailored to welcome its audience to what was probably their first post Covid musical experience. The string section, in particular gave a moving account worthy of Rachmaninov with memorable sections from the brass and percussion. An unforgettable performance.
