About Anne

As seen live on Britain's Got Talent the Champions, you can now book international flautist Anne Allen to play for you at any event.
Flautist
London
Verified profile

Recitals, weddings, corporate events, drinks receptions, private parties etc. No occasion too big or small as Anne can perform solo, with backing tracks, or with accompaniment (guitar, harp, piano, keyboard). Live music provides the perfect atmosphere for any event. It can help us feel excited, relaxed, hopeful & to see beauty in the world. That is what I create in every booking; however big or small, whether you would like music in person or for an online event. I will chat to you before the day to help create the perfect experience. Anne Allen has played the flute for Sting, the Royal Family, David & Victoria Beckham, KPMG, PWC, etc. across the UK & internationally. She first studied at Cambridge University then graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music with Distinction.

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.
