Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My warm baritone voice and audience engagement. I am more than happy to tailor my programmes to suit the individual and get complimented a lot on my variety of music.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

In December 2019 alone I have performed solo at: Royal Albert Hall, St Martin in the Fields, St George’s Hanover Square, St James’s Piccadilly, St Paul’s Covent Garden.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I enjoy baritones such as Roderick Williams and Bryn Terfel.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

On December 1st 2019 I made my solo debut at the Royal Albert Hall. Singing operatic arias, including getting the audience of 4000 to join in with Toreador (!), I performed to open the grand final of the ATP Champions Tennis Tour.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

That’s ok. Just let me know far enough in advance so that I can double check my calendar and find a deputy if necessary.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

I can link my iPad to a portable speaker if necessary, but it is not an issue. This will occur an additional fee due to the extra time it will take to source tracks.

How much time do you need to set up?

In a recital - no time. Just a piano and a short rehearsal please! Backing tracks - 10/15minutes so I can get used to your sound system and sound check.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yep. Contact me directly about requests as I only really prepare what is discussed.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Not a grand piano, no, but I do have a keyboard if this is required.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes. Contemporary pieces may result in additional charges due to their complexity and the time it takes to learn it.

"First-class singing and outstanding performance... Robin (Peter Edge) carried the show with his charisma and strong warm-toned baritone voice..."

Ashley C, 6 years ago

Peter Edge is a wonderful storyteller - in our performance of Bob Chilcott's 'Wenceslas' our Community Choir were bowled over when Peter brought King Wenceslas to life with his baritone solo in this dramatic and moving musical work which wowed our audience in Ashley Parish Church, Shropshire. Despite his name, musical accuracy and the rich quality of his voice - there is no edge to this talented singer - Peter is a delight to work with and brings encouragement to our 'amateur choir' which lifts our confidence and performance.
