Emerging soprano in London, with wide experience performing at weddings and concerts and a Masters from the Royal Welsh College of Music
Clare Treacey as a solo singer provided a musical framework for our wedding ceremony. She has a beautiful voice and great control of her pitch and tone, and created a unique atmosphere. Also, her suggestions for the choice of music were perfect for our church wedding. Where there was no background accompaniment music, Clare effortlessly played a guitar herself and sang at the same time. Don't let her youth fool you, she is truly a professional, came to our church rehearsal and did exactly what you'd hope for a quality professional. Top Marks. The guests loved it especially her Ave Maria. Thank you kindly Clare for making our wedding ceremony music special.
