About Thomas

Acton, London

Thomas Shelley is a versatile and adventurous musician, equally as comfortable premiering new works as he is with period-performance practice.

He plays on a modern cello by Wolfgang Schnabl

Thomas was outstanding, and all the guests at our garden party commented on what a lovely touch it was to have him performing. Thomas was easy to work with, listened to what we wanted, and did a spectacular performance. Very happy indeed, and we shall use him again!
