We were so fortunate to have Kimberley for our daughter’s wedding. A beautiful voice and talented pianist, Kimberley was a joy to work with. She has an extensive repertoire, and was more than happy to learn and prepare a new musical piece. Her professionalism and performance style is very impressive. Her music brought all of the other elements of the wedding together to make it such a beautiful ceremony.

Kim is truly very talented at what she does and we got many compliments on her beautiful voice and piano playing.

A gem in Ottawa!

Kimberley is an awesome talent, a true professional, delightful to work with and helped make our wedding day, spectacular! We wrote a song for my beautiful wife and Kimberley performed it live for our first dance. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house. The song was professionally produced and performed just like a fairytale. It truly is overwhelming to have the song as a continuing memory of our day. For those of you who read this, many may already know all about Kimberley’s wonderful talent. For those that don’t, you must get to know Kimberley and experience her work. Your life will change!

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.
– Natalie, funeral client

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.
– Kathleen Manion, funeral client

Kimberley performed at my father’s “Celebration Of Life” ceremony. The entire process was very easy for us at a difficult time.

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. She showed up with lots of time to get setup and understood exactly what we wanted (which is all very helpful when planning an event like this). We couldn’t have asked for anything nicer.

Our school has hired Kimberley for three years in a row, to grace our end-of-year celebration with her piano and voice.

We were very pleased to have Kimberley play at our reception. It was a Private VIP Cocktail Event with Canadian federal and foreign dignitaries, public servants and policymakers, thought-leaders, and key stakeholders. Kimberley added a wonderful ambiance to the evening and helped to make it a memorable evening for everyone.

We recently hired Kimberley to perform at the Daughters of the Vote Gala. The Gala celebrated women in Canadian Politics and Kimberley wowed the crowd of 600 ladies. Dressed elegantly, Kim performed on a Baby Grand Piano (that she helped us source). Kimberley was fantastic to deal with, very professional and came through at the last minute when she was asked to sing our National Anthem in both English and in French. I would highly recommend Kimberley for any event of any caliber, and I can assure you won’t be disappointed.
– Rebecca Trafford, Senior Event Manager, Chic and Swell

We hired Kimberley to perform for a large gala reception in Ottawa and from the moment I made contact with her she was friendly, very quick to reply, and incredibly knowledgeable about the venue she was performing at. She is extremely talented and a consummate professional – we would hire her again in a heartbeat!

Having Kimberley perform at a major international conference that I organized at The University of Ottawa was one of the key elements of success of the event!
