Suffolk churches: concerts and events

As part of my project to play the cello in all of Suffolk’s medieval churches, I am giving fundraising concerts and playing at church fundraising events around the county (and a few just over the border!). If you would like a fundraising concert at your village church, or cello music for a service or other church event, please contact me.

I am also now offering cello lessons to adults; please contact me if you are interested.
