Paul G, “I haven’t the words to express how utterly precious an experience it was that Emily gave us. A very very special surprise private concert for my wife’s 70th birthday. Just wonderful!” On this occasion I was playing my acoustic cello and the client’s requested program included: 1st movement Elgar cello concerto (solo)!, Prelude, Allemande and Sarabande of G major suite by JS Bach, “Nanna” by Manuel de Falla , “The Swan” by Saint Saens, “Prayer for the rivers” transcribed from my recorded improvisation in the 2016 crypt performance Chartres cathedral, “Salutation & Out of the Blue” (from my 2010 release double album production) For encores: Prelude D minor suite by JS Bach  & an impromptu improvisation as requested giving me free license to surf on the amazing acoustic of the room with the house designed by the famous architect Edwin Lutyens.

April 2023 5 star review for Emily’s cello arrangement to accompany orchestral backing track of Puccini’s operatic aria “Che Gelida Manina” 

5 Star review 23/11/22 providing mellow cello music for a three course dinner party at the officers mess Royal Army Medical Corp, Tidworth. A program of dance movements from the Bach suites by JS Bach,  my compositions in which I utilise looping pedals to multitrack the cello  and covers of pop songs.
“At such short notice, Emily was fantastic in every way. We could not have asked for more from her. She elevated the event to make it a resounding success. Thank you Emily”.

Review Private house concert in Bristol Program request was for the “Suite in G major ” for unaccompanied cello by JS Bach “Emily was amazing, she was so helpful with my last minute booking when another musician cancelled. She arrived on time, happily participated in a surprise entry, was very friendly, respected social distancing and of course her music was beautiful. Definitely recommend”!

(Wedding ceremony)Emily played at our wedding ceremony back in September and put together a beautiful arrangement of Chasing Cars for my wife to walk into. She was very professional and even better that we had expected, it really made our day perfect. Our only regret was that we didn’t ask her to play for longer! We were so happy and can’t thank Emily enough!

(University of Exeter Medical School graduation)Beautiful music played on an amazingly cool modern cello. Just the right backdrop to our celebration event on the lawn at St Luke’s in Exeter.
