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

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,

Dear Hazel & Lizz

I am writing to thank you so much for your amazing contribution to our show last Saturday evening.  Your performance as Elektra was positively sizzling hot hot hot !!!!!  The feedback I have received, brilliant and it would not surprise me to find you appearing in Germany sometime in the future.  I only wish Judy and I could have spent more time with you during the evening but there was so many things to do.  

With all our love & best wishes
