About Violinist Simon Jordan
Simon Jordan started playing the violin at age 5, and by age 14 had already passed the ultimate violin exam – ABRSM Grade 8 – and passed it with a distinction mark. At age 13 Simon gave his first violin recital (a sell-out) and at age 17 was gigging with bands in London, playing jazz at the Royal Festival Hall, and performing with legendary gypsy bands behind the Iron Curtain in Hungary and the former Czechoslovakia.
You may want Simon to play solo violin at your wedding – or to perform with a pianist. His regular performing partners are pianists Jon Spanyol, Christopher Warner and Martyn Croston. The combination of violin and piano is much more versatile than a string quartet and will work better than a solo violin if you require a musical performance for a long period of time. Simon is also a pianist – he can provide and bring his own piano; and also amplification for both violin and piano, if the wedding or the venue is big enough!
Whatever you choose, Simon will work with you or to your brief to compile a carefully crafted programme of music, making his own arrangements of music weeks before the event. Contact Simon now for a competitive quote – happiness is guaranteed!
