Susannah is available for wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions, wedding breakfasts, corporate events, birthdays, anniversaries, galas, product launches and private parties.

Biography: She was one of the youngest pupils attaining a scholarship to the prestigious Chethams School of Music at the age of 7. She then went on to study with acclaimed violinist and chamber musician Krysia Osostowicz at the Guildhall School Of Music and Drama in London. Since 1997 she has worked as a performer, private violin teacher and chamber musician in London but also has a wealth of performing experience in the fields of TV, radio, session, and orchestral, playing in venues such as the QEH, the Royal Albert Hall, and the Bridgewater  Hall,   amongst others. Susannah now dedicates most of her time performing as a classical and electric violinist in the UK, managing the South East String Quartet.

Susannah played on our wedding day. She was absolutely brilliant! - very accommodating and easy to chat to about what we wanted - and also what she required in order to play. It was all really easy. Her playing gave exactly the atmosphere we wanted for our wedding day. Lots of people commented on how lovely the music was. Therefore, I cannot recommend her enough and must say there is nothing like live music played by a talented musician to make the day!
