Lydia was fantastic. She was a fabulous musician, pleasant, efficient and self sufficient. She gave a great ambience to the party and was a complete success. Thankyou

Lydia's repetoire of songs was perfect for my wedding and she was really flexible with what she played - she even played a special arrangement of a particular song for me, which sounded great! She was really responsive over email and so easy to work with :) I'd definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a cellist.

Lidia was AMAZING. We ran a very complicated conference at Shoreditch Town hall, and Lidia was so easy to work with. always ready, played beautifully and added a such a unique dynamic to our conference. I can not highly recommend her enough. We look forward to having you back next year :-)
