About Nelly Rodríguez, clarinet: I booked her last minute to play some duets in one of my work colleagues birthday party, and it was a big success! She's very versatile, and we could play basically all the requests from the guests! I would definitely hire her again, and would highly recommend her. Regards, F.

NELLY RODRIGUEZ It was a real pleasure to have Nelly play a recital at St Matthew’s Westminster. She is a very fine performer who has the ability to engage with an audience and communicate the music warmly. Her programme was interesting and she showed off the versatility of the clarinet in many contrasting ways. She also used the fine acoustic of the building in a musical way. A fine young musician who is worth hearing. Nigel Groome Director of Music, St Matthew’s Westminster
