I was a violist with Opera North then a violinist in the Liverpool Phil. I left to freelance for variety, which has been amazing over years
Performance with Quartz String Quartet
The Cawley family were deeply appreciative of Encore who were superb ,magnificent and incredibly sensitive to the music requested . Truly the music performed was beyond perfection and allowed grace to be poured into a family that was hurting - our deepest appreciation to each of you and all the gifts you were able to provide . You were able to turn a difficult day into a joyous day . Sincerely Gerald Cawley
