Robert T, 12 days ago

Maya was fantastic to work with. She was very well presented and a credit to Encore artists She provided a good indication of what could be played at the event, in keeping with it being a party, which was helpful. She was also extremely polite and followed up the next day to wish us well, which was appreciated. We would rebook Thank you

Jennifer N, 8 years ago

...I had an absolutely magical and uplifting time at the concert which far surpassed my initial expectations...Maya Irgalina was electric, fusing her pieces with a dark, emotive energy that could be felt with every key that was struck.
