What if my timings change after I've booked you?
Just keep in touch - pick up the phone and I'm sure we can work something out. I try very hard to accommodate the client.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Happy to oblige although this is not something I usually do.
How much time do you need to set up?
I need to do a sound check with backing tracks through the sound system, without the guests present, if possible, so usually an hour before guests arrive is sufficient, if this is agreeable with the venue.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
You are welcome to make suggestions or pick something from a list. I will usually discuss the programme with the client in order to tailor the repertoire to the event and the guests/attendees. For example, lighter operatic music, big operatic numbers....
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes I can bring a small battery operated amp to play backing tracks on for a small space/church/room or a larger system with two speakers, or alternatively I can play my tracks through your sound system.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Yes I can - I am open to suggestions and we can discuss whether it is an appropriate song for my voice type, or whether you may be better off choosing a different performer. I am an opera singer, but I do perform a certain amount of cross-over and lighter numbers. I don't sing pop music - not that I don't like it! It just sounds wrong in my vocal style :)
What do your clients love most about your performances?
I am an experienced performer, having sung all over the world in all different kinds of venues and for all kinds of people. I am flexible and easy going and love to entertain. I would say that people "love me" in my performance. My voice is me, and I am sharing it, through singing and if I can make people smile, laugh or cry then I am suceeding in my job.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
I have sung at a private dinner for Placido Domingo at The Pearl, Dohar, Qatar. An event for the King of Jordan held in Dubai. At the European Space Agency, Frankfurt. The Houses of Parliament. On the Orient Express. For Mathew Parris in his house on a Spanish hillside. At Printemps in Paris, sponsored by Eurostar. A marriage proposal dinner in Putney.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Montserrat Caballe. Maria Callas. Joan Sutherland. Angela Gheorghiu.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I have performed at so many events (pls see my websites for details), I suppose high profile would mean the King of Jordan dinner for 1,500, but maybe also something like Elton John's party at his Windsor pad where guests were Naomi Campbell and Bob Geldof etc etc.
