Alif was terrific. We made several requests which required him to learn new material, and he did so with no issue, and performed it as if he had been playing it for years. He did a great job with both the ceremony and cocktail hour, with no rehearsal and limited guidance. We had a little trouble with communication a month before the event, which is the only reason this isn't a 5 start review. However, we were able to connect after about a week and the actual event was outstanding.
Alif perforfoarmed like to professional he is and entertained our crowd. Immediately was able to pair with another pianist he had never met and amazed the patrons dueling and playing with the other player.
Thank you, Alif.
He was absolutely amazing. Hired him an extra hour, he was THAT Good.
A must hire!!
