I have performed for religious funerals of all faiths, non-religious funerals, and celebrations of life.

You may choose any songs that are special to you and your loved ones, they don’t have to be chosen from my repertoire. My Song lists are offered as a helpful guide of common requests:

Kimberley delivered a wonderful performance at my father’s funeral. It was a very moving performance and a very fitting tribute to my father. Her angelic voice and flawless piano playing were truly what he deserved. She worked with our requests for some very specific pieces and did it all in a very professional and empathetic manner.

I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have found Kim. It was very important to us to honor my brother-in-law with a service that would include music that we knew he would love. I provided Kim with the songs and was so appreciative that she professionally managed everything for me from that point forward. It was comforting knowing that I could put my trust in her and no longer had to worry. Kim exceeded our expectations. She has the most BEAUTIFUL voice, warm personality and a very classy demeanor.

Kimberley recently played at my mother’s memorial service and she was superb. Everyone loved her beautiful interpretations of the music we chose, and her amazing voice. Kim is very professional – she responded quickly by email, and was very helpful in finalizing the musical choices. We couldn’t have asked for anything nicer.
