We chose Nadia out of 8 quotes, and we were so pleased we did. Nadia played at an outside funeral for us. We had a short call beforehand to discuss logistics and timings. Everyone we have spoken to has commented on how beautiful her music was. Very talented. Thank you so much to Nadia for making this easy for us at this difficult time. Best Wishes Chris and Georgina
