About Sandra

Sandra Brus, versatile & passionate violin player.
Violinist
Dorking

I'm a professional violin player available to provide live music for functions, weddings, private parties, corporate events, hotels and restaurants. I completed my degree at the Conservatory Giuseppe Tartini in Trieste Italy and played in several professional classical orchestras. Music gave me the chance to meet nice people and travel and play at Tamworth Country festival in Australia, USA, Germany, Italy, Croatia and Slovenia. I play in a duo with my partner Paul on guitar and occasionally we team up with the singer Lucy Layton. We've recently being hosted by Global Radio London, London Live TV, The Shard and in 2017 we played at the Westminster House of Parliament. We're very versatile musicians with a colourful and vaste repertoire and we can learn any requested song. We can create the right atmosphere for any occasion. Our music can be elegant and refined at a reception party or upbeat and wild at a party.

I've been collecting material and working on my solo record for about two years collaborating and recording with Sandra & Paul. They are very creative musicians and working with them is a real pleasure. They have the ability of developing creative arrangements that enhance and complement the song writing. The record will be finished soon and I can't wait.

Sandra & Paul made my birthday party the most enjoyable in years!! Their happy and energetic music ignited the party and got people on their feet, dancing the night away. They are very versatile and have been able to satisfy my guests requests. I highly recommend them and will be booking them again!

I performed with Sandra at the Mercato metropolitan last week and was really impressed with her stage presence and ability to fill up a space with good vibes with her violin. She really managed to wake up and excite an initially poorly interested and lazy audience. Sandra is an amazing performer and a true talent!
