About Corey

Violinist

Verified profile
I'm a freelance violinist graduated from RNCM who plays many styles. Musicals, Orchestral, Electric, Pop, Bollywood, Orthodox Jewish.

Hi I'm a violinist graduated from Royal Northern College of music. I've been involved in all sorts of projects throughout my career so far and love trying new things! I play in London, around the country and world as a soloist as well as part of orchestras. I play in musicals in and around London and have played in venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, London Palladium and Cadogan Hall. I run the string ensemble 'Vibellos String Collective' (also on encore!) and also perform solo electric violin at large functions for high end clients such as Bentley. I can also do this as part of a DJ live set up where I improvise over a DJ at wedding parties or large corporate functions. As a soloist I play a large range of styles including: classical, pop, jazz, love songs, Disney, musicals and RnB. I play as part of a Jewish function band and also play solo authentic Jewish music during ceremonies and can offer lounge sets over dinner. I'm also comfortable in front of a camera having done a lot of promo video shoots a few of which you can find on my media page here.

Corey was amazing. She knew exactly what we wanted and did not disappoint. Corey started by playing at our civil ceremony and then went into playing at our reception and our guests were beyond impressed. She created the perfect ambience for our reception! We picked Corey based on her you tube show reels... please be aware that although these are great they do not give her justice, her live performances are something else. We would definitely book Corey again and recommend her!! Beejal & Nirav

Vibellos string trio were absolutely amazing! The song choices were absolutely perfect for what we asked for and everyone enjoyed it, especially the bride and groom who it was a surprise for. I'd highly recommend them!

Corey was an absolute star! Her performance was amazing for my wedding, for the offset was engaged and provided great support from suggesting songs to providing a sample. Corey was professional and I would recommend using her work. (PS she sings too!)

Corey is an outstanding performer! I couldn’t believe my eyes or ears when I looked up at the stage and saw Corey performing in the early hours of the morning at our charity relay. Having just walked throughout the night and feeling a bit exhausted and sore, listening to her music uplifted my spirits and allowed me to shake away my exhaustion. Her positive presence and current song choices transported a new and enlightened way of listening to the violin. It was one of my highlights of the whole event!

We first saw Corey play at a friends wedding and we instantly knew we wanted her playing at ours (which was 2 years down the line at that point). Now it's after our wedding we couldn't be happier with the addition of Corey to our afternoon/evening cross over. Corey's set was modern, upbeat and really well received by all of our guests. We had requests from several of our guests about hiring Corey as they're planning their wedding ceremonies and her performance really makes the whole atmosphere, we couldn't imagine the day without her now. She is a delight to deal with and I would 100% recommend her to anyone getting married, indeed we have already! Thank you Corey, you helped shape our day and it was perfect!
