Absolutely phenomenal. Vasili is an amazingly talented operatic Tenor (I have a background in classical music myself therefore should be in a good place to make that call). He is also a consummate professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish with the booking process. Impeccable manners, smart and en pointe throughout! Vasili is a star!!

Vasili is an absolute superstar. An experience we will remember forever. He's very responsive and worked with us to agree our song choices he was also happy to coordinate and plan the performance directly with the venue that we had booked. Would not hesitate to book again.

I was arranging a special 'covid-safe' 80th birthday surprise and was asked to find a tenor who would be prepared to serenade a very special lady in her garden. I listened to/watched around 50 singers on the internet until I came across Vasili and knew he was just perfect! Vasili was very good at responding to all manner of queries and came up with suggestions as to a suitable repertoire. On the day itself, the weather was absolutely terrible, but Vasili was a real trooper and a consummate professional, not just giving a great performance whilst the heavens opened, but making it a truly touching and personal experience as well. I would highly recommend booking Vasili if you want to give your event that extra sparkle of flair and brilliance! Thank you Vasili!
