Marie is known as a versatile freelance violist and violinist, playing solo, chamber music and in orchestras.
I booked Marie to play for a string quartet function yesterday. She arrived in good time and was good fun to have in the quartet. It was a long booking covering music through the ages which she sight read professionally. I would recommend her to anyone wishing to book a player for work of this nature.
