About Anne

Flautist
London

Anne Allen - The Romantic Flute For me, the word 'Romantic' evokes a wide variety of memories, dreams, emotions and ideals. It can conjure up scenes of beautiful countryside, classic ancient ruins, people walking hand in hand or a beautiful moonlit night. Romantic can also evoke your favourite melody, book or film, moments shared with friends or loved ones. Above all it tells a story that is personal to each individual. Every story has an imaginative and emotional appeal that contains aspects of heroism, adventure, mystery, friendship and love. That is what I attempt to create in every booking; a story without words that is your story, whether it be for a birthday, dinner, corporate event or a private party and both in person or online.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I tailor every performance to your needs. I make sure that I chat to each client before the booking so that not only will you be assured that everything will go smoothly, you will also know that you are able to relax and enjoy the entertainment, whatever the event.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Venues as large and prestigious as Blenheim Palace, Wembley Arena and The Royal Albert Hall, to private homes for intimate dinner parties. No venue is too large or too small. The flute is ideal because I can adapt my playing to suit any location.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I perform a wide variety of music from relaxing classical favourites to film music, baroque, classical, romantic and 20th century to new compositions written especially for me or for a particular occasion or event.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I have performed for members of the Royal Family, Sting, David & Victoria Beckham and many other celebrities. I treat every client as unique and important however and look forward to helping you feel special and to ensuring your event is memorable, professional and runs smoothly.

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

I try to be flexible where possible to help your event run as smoothly as possible. If your timings change in the run up to the event please let me know as soon as possible.

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

I would be happy to recommend a DJ from Encore Musicians who has the experience and track lists to suit your event.

How much time do you need to set up?

For events online all you have to do is follow a link so set up is incredibly fast! For live events I need 5 minutes to set up for solo flute, 30 minutes for flute and harp or flute and guitar because of tuning.

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

I love to have your input to create a set list including pieces I know you love and might have special meaning for you! If you are not quite sure then I have many years of experience and literally thousands of performances to draw from to ensure that you and your guests have an amazing time.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

For online performances all you need is a laptop, ipad etc. For live events we might require chairs (without arms) if you would like flute & guitar or flute & harp or piano accompaniment.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I am very happy to take requests! If there is something that you would like me to play and I don't already have this in my repertoire then there might be a small fee of £15 for the cost and admin purchasing the music required.

Anne's concert online was lovely - such beautiful playing and a beautiful smile! It was the highlight of my week. Unlike other online events it was very easy to find and the balance of flute and backing tracks was just right. Anne had offered to dedicate pieces to friends or family with particular shout outs or messages so it was lovely to be able to surprise a family member who lives far away with a birthday message and dedication. I am looking forward to seeing Anne on our TV screen again soon and would definitely recommend Anne to anyone.

It was wonderful to be entertained by Anne at our lock down dinner party on screen with us at our dinner table.. The family wanted an excuse to have a restaurant style meal, get dressed up and be entertained. Anne created the perfect ambience. Anne was dressed beautifully and the set up simply on a laptop worked perfectly like she was in the room with us. She played an enchanting performance of much loved classics and was open to requests. We were sad to see her performance come to an end! I personally had wanted to see Anne play for so long having purchased her CD in 2016 but being so far away it felt impossible to attend a live perfomance. This online live experience was simply perfect. I highly recommend an online performance with Anne at home.
