What people say Help

  • Dear Maria, thank you for playing for us yesterday. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed listening to you and how beautiful you looked. I am sure you will be very successful in your career and I look forward to seeing you perform again!

    Mr J.C., Private Event, London, August 2016
  • Hi Maria, I just wanted to say how happy we were with your performance. It was beautiful and was exactly what I wanted. If I could change anything it would be to walk a little slower down the aisle and take in the moment. Thank you and take care!

    Mr & Mrs Pyne, Wedding, London, July 2016
  • Last September my wife and I stayed in a Lake Garda hotel and Maria played at the end of season party. Like many of the guests we stayed and listened to Maria, captivated by her music and charm, rather than move on to the other entertainment. This year we planned a garden party to celebrate out 25th wedding anniversary and we looking for some musical entertainment an discussed a number of options.

    I remembered Maria but as we did not even know her name my wife thought it would be difficult. We tracked her down and she agreed to perform.

    She was once again a delight, with her music and the intensity of her concentration, in a wide range of music. Afterwards many of our guests praised her performance and asked about her. It follows that we would not hesitate to book her again or recommend her to others.

    Mr P.B., Private Party, London, July 2016
  • Maria, we would like to thank you for playing the harp so beautifully at the reception following our civil partnership ceremony on Saturday. We received so many wonderful compliments during the rest of the day; clearly everyone enjoyed your music and it will enable them to remember the day for a long time to come.

    Jeremy & Cham, Civil Ceremony, London, April 2016
