Customer questions

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

I am usually flexible with time changes and just ask that you can provide as much notice as possible if there is a time change.

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

Unfortunately, this is something I couldn't offer.

How much time do you need to set up?

I normally set up abut 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time.

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

Of course, however I am also happy to chat through and make sure we find what works best for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

If I am performing with piano, I will bring my electric piano if there isn't one at the venue. It is a bonus if your venue has a piano, however.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

”Murphy excels as the enchanting maid. Her duet with wide-eyed Scanlon, ‘Take Me to the World’, shows off the considerable dynamic range of her beautiful soprano voice… NI Opera Studio’s continued experimentation with storytelling succeeds in showcasing the young singing talent on the island, and giving a chance for singers to develop their acting skills under a range of directors.” Alan in Belfast

But then, fear gives way to awe at the sight of and sound from Rebecca Murphy's Venus, for both cast and audience. In a matter of minutes we have been both entranced and repulsed by the light and darkness within life and love.
