He has a wide repertoire which includes opera arias, songs from the shows and many other songs both sacred and secular.

Customer questions

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?


How much time do you need to set up?

30 - 60 minutes would be appreciated just to get to know the venue and acoustic

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

I have a broad repertoire of songs and arias including opera, musical theatre, lieder and songs from around the world. I am able and willing to sing in English, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Estonian, Swedish, Finnish and Afrikaans... so far.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely. For church and similar events, if an organist or keyboard player is not able to accompany me, I can perform to backing tracks instead.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I am happy to take requests to learn new pieces but I have a broad repertoire to choose from.
