About Ezme

Experienced and versatile cellist playing classical and pop music for weddings and events.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

My name is Ezme, I am a classically trained cellist (Purcell School, RCM) with years of experience playing worldwide for all kinds of events. I really enjoy providing a musical backdrop for weddings, corporate events, parties, funerals, wakes and many other kinds of functions. No event is too big or too small- I've played at intimate dinner parties for 2, and to live audiences of 30,000. I can provide elegant classical music, or recognisable pop tunes with some film/tv and jazz standards mixed in. And best of all, I love learning new music so if you have a couple of pieces that are special to you then I can usually learn them for you :) I'll arrive smartly dressed, on time and with everything I need for a smooth set up. I am very experienced in liaising with venue staff and finding the most appropriate spot to set up. I'm happy to dress to blend in to the background, but I also love to dress up so I can fit in with any theme you have planned. I usually offer 1-2 hours of playing spread over a 2-3 hour period; this is totally flexible and can be tailored to your event. As an example, this could be music for your wedding ceremony and then your reception, or three 40 minutes background sets of music. I will need breaks but these can be discussed and confirmed in advance and often can be coincided with things like speeches to make your event feel seamless. I charge 55p per mile from which covers my fuel, and time taken to get to you. I have Public Liabilty Insurance up to 10million, and I always have an up to date DBS.

I was absolutely blown away with how quickly my booking came together. Ezme is quick to respond and really puts your mind at ease. My father adored her and described her as super talented. He has attended some very high up classical events in London and in Europe and can honestly say Ezme is an amazing musician. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you ❤️

On behalf of the Aston Martin Owners Club (Area 10) I wish to thank you for the three performances you have given to our club at our annual dinners. After the first one members came up and congratulated us on finding you. The following year we were asked if we could book you again, which you may remember we did. Once again it was very successful. When we began promoting our dinner for this year, the word had got round and our numbers increased. People were keen to hear you again and had been spreading the word. However the performance itself is not the only part of the experience. As an organiser I found the process of working with you was easy, professional and a total delight and I look forward to booking you again in the future.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My music creates a lovely elegant backdrop of non invasive music, and is a lovely talking point for guests who may not yet have met.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Ooh, a big question! Too many to mention, but notable venues include: Buckingham Palace, Edinburgh Playhouse, Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Burg Al Arab Dubai, Barbican Centre, Glastonbury Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival...

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I love ELO! Steven Isserlis is my favorite cellist. I end up loving the music of the people I work with as I get to know it really well- Cinematic Orchestra, Kojey Radical, Yolanda Brown, Dillie Keane... All fantastic musicians in such different ways.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Buckingham Palace Jubilee Celebrations. Guest entertainer on BBC CBeebies 'Yolanda's Band Jam' I am also a D'Addario Orchestral Featured Artist.

Do you have different line-up options?

I also run a string quartet if you would prefer, please contact me to discuss.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I am usually pretty flexible as long as I have no other gigs either side of your booking. Please contact me to discuss. Obviously extensive changes in performance times will affect my fee.

How much time do you need to set up?

5-10 minutes

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yes, no problem. Part of the planning process is discussing what kind of music you like best and creating a set list especially for you from the material I already have, plus I can learn 2 special pieces just for you.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I just need an armless chair but I can even bring a folding stool if necessary!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, I offer 2 pieces as part of my fee, any other pieces you would like add an extra £30 per piece/song. I need as much time as possible before your event to source and learn music.
