About Oliver

Public liability insurance of None
Verified profile
With high-grade diplomas in both the harp and piano, I am able to play a wide range of different musical styles at your event.

Now studying Music at Clare College, Cambridge, Oliver has been performing on both the harp and piano at venues across the U.K for the last five years. Alongside these instruments, Oliver is also proficient at the violin and viola, and also sings in various local choirs. On the harp, Oliver has distinguished qualifications, including most recently being awarded the Trinity Exhibition Award. This award, which is given to the best performances observed by the Trinity examining body, was granted to Oliver after his Advanced Certificate recital where he achieved a score of 98%. Oliver has won prizes at national competitions across the U.K and has performed various recitals at many different venues. Alongside his solo work, Oliver also performs with several orchestras, and has played with notable ensembles such as in the Durufle Requiem with the King’s College Choir conducted by Stephen Cleobury. On the piano, Oliver has a Trinity ATCL diploma with a distinction, and has won many regional competitions just with his harp performances. Oliver prides himself on being able to cater very individually to clients needs. For all events a meeting, either in person or over the phone, will be offered in order to craft the perfect programme for your event. Oliver’s repertory for receptions and parties is typically jazz based, but he is also able to offer a wide range of Classical and Popular music. Oliver can also make special arrangements of particular pieces of music if requested.

Oliver played at our Christmas party and made the whole event feel very special. He was charming and flexible. His playing was absolutely what we wanted. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you!

Oliver was very accommodating in the fact that I had to change his start twice and he had no hesitation in doing so and arrived promptly. I hired him to play at our wedding breakfast and it was a surprise for my wife, the guests really enjoyed the fact there was a harpist playing them in when they were seated, he even allowed them to pose for pictures with the harp they loved it that much. To make it more personal he asked if there were any particular songs we wanted playing and he took the time to learn them. Very polite and friendly and at a very good price too, I would definitely recommend Oliver if you require a harpist. Thank you for making our day that bit more special

Oliver played harp for our Christmas dinner reception at Trinity Hall Cambridge 2015, and piano for our Christmas dinner reception at St Catharine’s College Cambridge 2016. Oliver’s musical skill and repertoire at both events was fantastic, and thoroughly enjoyed by all guests attending our event. We have no hesitation in recommending Oliver, and know that he would be a fantastic addition to any event.

Oliver's playing on the harp at our Christmas event was absolutely beautiful - he played a wide range of different Christmas tunes and various guests said how wonderful his performing was
