“Naomi was sensational. Once she started to play, the audience was utterly spellbound and captivated by her music and performance. She has a unique ability to mix classical and modern music in such a way that it appealed to everyone in the room, aged between 18 and 80. Some of the guests even got up to dance to her music! I cannot recommend Naomi highly enough…”
