Debbie Lynne's profile picture
Violinist
Coventry
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I play acoustic and electric music for special occasions and events, and I would love to play for yours. I play solo with or without backing track, and can also arrange a duo, trio or string quartet. Whatever your event, I want you and your guests to remember your day as one of the best you've ever had! I have an extensive repertoire of over 700 pieces, ranging from popular classical to 21st century rock. You can choose from one style or a mixture, and I play requests too. Born in Coventry, studied in Birmingham, London and Paris. Worked as Co-Leader of Orchestre International de Paris, and Principal 2nd violin of Les Soloistes de Berry and Orchestre des Arts Florrisants. I was a “professeur” at the Candela Conservatoire in the 14th arrondissement, where I prepared students for entry to the Conservatiore National de Paris. On returning to the UK, I toured with Scottish Ballet and English National Ballet as well as freelancing with a number of UK orchestras. I'm reliable, adaptable and keen to discuss your requirements.
