Hire Petra for Your Event
A wedding piano player brings a tone of sophistication to a special day. Petra is a classically trained piano player, with an interest in a wide range of musical genres. As a wedding piano player she enjoys a musical life of great variety. She completed her studies in 2011 at Trinity College of Music, London. Then she was awarded a TCM Scholarship and the Raymond Russel Prize. Having has made numerous radio and television broadcasts, Petra is a seasoned pro. These include a live broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Also recording the soundtrack for BBC’s Wolf Hall (Debbie Wiseman) and the ITV period drama series ‘Victoria’ (Ruth Barrett).
In high demand as a soloist, choir accompanist, orchestral and chamber musician, Petra has performed in France, Austria, Turkey, Italy, Palma de Mallorca, Spain and the UK. These have been for the UK’s leading ensembles such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Mozart Players and the National Symphony Orchestra. Also she’s played for London Concertante, European Union Chamber Orchestra as well as many others.
She plays in church and civil weddings on a regular basis as a wedding piano player and also and has a strong repertoire of classical and jazz music. For many years, she’s played as a cocktail pianist in hotels such as Hilton Waldorf and Grosvenor House Hotel. With her own electric piano if your venue doesn’t have a piano, Petra is fully self-contained and highly professional.
Classic and contemporary pop songs can be played as well as light jazz and of course classical. This works well in weddings, where you can start with more formal light classical music, and then move on to lighter, more ‘pop’ music for the drinks reception. Or even a mix of the two for the wedding ceremony. With an absolute love of what she does and a love of music in general, Petra is also a keen Lindy hop dancer and enjoys teaching and educational projects in her spare time.
