I’ve worked with Simon on several projects, at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and at numerous church performances. He is a first rate, intelligent player who is particularly sensitive to liturgical music. I would recommend him without any hesitation.

Simon's trumpet playing was nothing short of stunning. His brilliant tone and perfect intonation truly brought the music alive.
