What if my timings change after I've booked you?
No problem at all. The easiest way to solve any issue is to keep communicating, so just drop me a line and we’ll talk through any changes.
How much time do you need to set up?
I like to get to the venue at least an hour before the start time to ensure that everything is set up and the accompanist and I have rehearsed in situ.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Every performance is tailored to the individual event, and so we’ll have a chat about what you’d like me to sing and whether it’s already in my repertoire. Don’t worry if it’s not, I’m very happy to prepare something new! (See below re new additions)
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
If you’d like me to sing accompanied by organ/piano/keyboard, then either the venue needs to have an instrument or the accompanist should bring theirs. I’m happy to arrange for an accompanist at a separate charge, as I work with lots of talented musicians and am lucky to have many contacts.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Absolutely - we’ll chat about the kind of music you’d like and what I can perform for you. If it’s not a piece I know but will be suitable for me to sing, I’d be happy to prepare it specially for your event.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
I take pride in the detail, and I’m committed to giving the best performance possible. My clients appreciate the support I give them with choosing the music, sourcing additional musicians where needed and turning up polished, poised and prepared on the day to give a professional performance.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
Royal Albert Hall, Opera Holland Park, Royal Festival Hall, Fairfield Halls, Bryn Terfel’s Faenol Festival, Margam Park, Swansea, Millennium Stadium, Cardiff, St David’s Hall, St David’s Cathedral, Millennium Centre, Cardiff, Songs of Praise
