Love is in the Air

‘Let’s do it, let’s fall in love’…. so goes the chorus of Cole Porters memorable song ‘Let’s fall in Love’.
With spring in the air and blossoms on the trees, Shepstone’s Garden was a perfect setting for this mid-week engagement event… and she said yes!

Dinner for Two-Socially Distanced

By |2021-10-09T08:44:32+02:0011 Aug 2020|Categories: Live Music, Music for Events|Tags: , |

A Chef and a violinist make the dinner for two a special event. With the violin way up high on the balcony and the romantic couple below make sure social distancing is observed. It was lovely to see a couple finding a way to celebrate life and love amidst the restrictions of lock-down.

SAMA #26 Nomination

By |2021-10-09T13:39:11+02:0016 Jul 2020|Categories: Awards, Music, Recordings|Tags: , , |

What started out as a project to help violin students practise for their music exams, evolved into a recording project and subsequently has received a SAMA Nomination (South African Music Award). So delighted to find that my Classical album ‘Vignettes for Violin’ released in 2019 has been nominated for an award under the Classical Music category.

The #SAMA26 awards will be held virtually mymuze.com, and Mzansi Magic, 3-7 August @ 9:30pm to catch the winners and all the industry buzz!

Special thanks goes to Rory Gaddin who engineered the recording, piano whizz Ashlea Martin who accompanied me on all the pieces and master of mastering Keith Forsythe who added the finishing touches to the album.
