Description

Price from: £240

Mary is a versatile Violinist with a beautiful tone offering solo violin with backing tracks (some of which are recorded herself) including classical, jazz, Modern Popular songs, Film and TV, and Disney music. She provides a high quality pat tested speaker system which can be used for events of up to 500 people.

Mary studied at Trinity College of Music in London where she was the youngest person to win the TCM Soloist competition in John’s Smith Square. She now performs as a soloist, chamber/orchestral musician and as a session Violinist, more notably she has worked on Littlewoods and Oatibix adverts, with the bootleg beatles, and once for an episode of Rogue Traders! She has also performed live on 'Later Live with Jools Holland'.

She performs with various ensembles and orchestras, including the Kings Chamber Orchestra, New London Soloists Orchestra, Garden Opera, and Adoramus Orchestra, which she often leads.

As a soloist and as part of a violin Piano duo Mary performs with Pianist Merel Van Der Knoop on board P&O ships, concert venues and care homes.

Mary aims to fulfil clients musical wishes, and can learn and get backing tracks for most things, especially if it's either a song or classical music. Please ask if you don't see something particular you are looking for. As long as a track is available or it is easy to record, Mary will be happy to learn up to 5 new songs that aren’t on the playlist. Mary only performs inside with her classical violin, but now has a beautiful wooden electric violin and battery operated amp for performance and with this set up will happily play outside under cover in dry weather.

Mary was amazing. She played absolutely beautifully and helped to give the perfect tribute to my Granny. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Violinist - Funeral Service

Hi, I'm a classically trained Violinist and play as a soloist with orchestras, and with a pianist. At funerals I usually play totally solo with no backing tracks unless requested by you. I am happy to learn new music such as favourite songs of your loved one or any music that is meaningful to you. I often play a solo violin piece as a reflection during the funeral service and the lark ascending (5 min extract) is popular for this, as is ashokan farewell and Albinoni's adagio, but you can choose the music that is best for your service. Because of the sensitive nature of a funeral service, I don't have any film of me playing at funerals but have attached recordings instead, plus a few videos of music for other occasions. This quote can include... 15 mins music pre service Music for coffin entrance Reflective piece during the service Exit music Please also ask if you have other requirements for the service.

FAQs

  • How long do you play for?

    I play for as long as the client requests but the wedding packages are based on specific times that are stated by each package.

  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?

    Yes I have my own PA with two speakers. I also have an electric violin and battery powered amp for outside situations.

  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?

    Yes I do.

  • How much space do you require?

    I can fit into any space really and can adapt the equipment used to fit the space.

  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?

    It's very likely that I will be able to play it. Just let me know what the song is and I will look into it for you.

  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?

    It depends on how long I am playing for. If I was playing for an hour I would take a 5 min break.
