20.07.19 - 25th Wedding Anniversary, Bath

"Dear Lizz

Before too much time goes by, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing for Ann and I last Saturday. All the feedback from our friends and family loved your playing, your choices of music and your engaging personality. And of course you were a big hit with the kids. One relative said having you play was a master stroke as this really personalised the day. 

So we can’t thank you enough for sharing part of the day with us." - Simon Ingram-Hill

Thank you so much for your performance at the wedding, it's a shame I didn't get to see much of it because the photographers whisked us away but all the other guests were very complementary and hugely impressed.
Thanks again for everything, everybody said you really made the reception something special rather than it just being drinks at the bar.

Had Lizz play for my 21st birthday private dinner and she was incredible. Played all the songs we discussed and was on time for setting up. She even went above and beyond and played for my guests as they walked into the room. Making it even more special. She played my mum and dad’s wedding song which was not on her list but learnt it for the night. Wouldn’t think twice about booking Lizz she was just amazing and all my family and friends couldn’t stop talking about how great she was. Thank you so much, Nicole x

26.06.18 - Sandford Retirement Village, Bristol

We all enjoyed a splendid afternoon at the marquee yesterday! Day 2 of founders week saw musical entertainment from the wonderful classical violinist Lizz Lipscombe. Lizz performed a variety of music, including classical, jazz and popular songs from the 1930's. 

The way Lizz engages with her audience and encourages participation is truly mesmerising. Thank you to staff for your help and support. We truly appreciate it!

Dear Lizz,

Our thanks are to you for playing so beautifully as usual. 

The day was just perfect. It was magical in every way. We are still in a daze with it all. 

We will be in touch again soon.

Lizz played violin for our wedding day in May and she was absolutely amazing! She played the pieces we chose for our church ceremony beautifully and all our guests enjoyed the mix of pieces she played at our champagne reception. We highly recommend Lizz for any other couples looking for a violinist for their wedding day. Thank you so much!

Hello Lizz

It was lovely to meet you on Wednesday and thank you so much for your wonderful performance. Our residents were absolutely bowled over!
Some lovely comments about you and your performance:

“I don’t think I have heard music so beautifully performed in a long, long time”
“The violinist has a lovely nature, very kind and friendly”
“I found the music so moving, tears welled up in my eyes”
“It was absolutely fantastic, what a gifted lady!”
“Very, very moving…it was lovely!”
“So relaxing and uplifting too, exquisite playing. Please can she come again?!”

Two of our residents in particular, not usually moved by music, were animated and touched very deeply.

23.11.17 Church Concert, Shipton-on-Cherwell

Dear Lizz

It was a delight to meet you and your Dad on Thursday night and to enjoy your marvelous playing in our little church. You gave us such a rich variety.

We especially appreciated your generosity in giving the proceeds from the CDs to the Friends of Holy Cross. We mark our first anniversary as a group a week today and We think we will reach £15,000, against our initial target of £5,000. The concert was one of the best of an almost non-stop calendar of events which have both raised funds and brought local people together.

So, thank you very much again and we look forward to seeing and hearing you again soon

All warmest, Sue and the team

Hey Lizz,

Firstly thank you so much for playing on our wedding day! All the guests feedback was how fantastic you were. Ever since I was a little girl I always imagined walking down the aisle to a violin, so thank you for forfilling my dream. 

Thank you so much for the effort you put in to work the room and get everyone involved after the ceremony. I've been told you even took requests from some of our 'tipsy' guests which made there day. We both really appreciate the extra time it took for you to learn the new songs for us, which made our day extra special. Also thank you for the surprise cd you placed in our post box, it was a nice treat to find 😄

Many many thanks again 
Julie and colin

Hi Lizz

Thank you so so much for playing so beautifully on our wedding day! Gary and I had so many compliments from our guests on how beautifully you played and how enjoyable the music was during our drinks reception 😊  I did manage to enjoy a short piece of Pachelbel's Canon before walking down the aisle, but would love to hear you play it again for us - perhaps in a slightly more relaxed environment!!

I've attached a couple of pictures below - I think the one of you is so lovely and was taken by one of our guests! I hope you like it 😊

I will definitely recommend you to anyone getting married / looking for a fabulous solo violinist for any occasion!

Very best wishes,
