Greetings, I am a freelancing pianist, vocalist, and bandleader. My services extend to a variety of special events, including business parties, private holiday parties, weddings, funeral/memorial services, coffee shops, cocktail hour, and local celebrations.
I have had the privilege of playing enchanting classical music as the bride walks down the aisle, smooth jazz or pop favorites during cocktail parties, or assemble a full band for audiences around Michigan. Performing as a solo pianist/vocalist is my specialty. As a current music student at Western Michigan University, I have the connections and ability to assemble a full band to fill the personalized needs of each unique event.
I made the right choice when I selected Ms. Katherine Elise. The occasion was not a happy one; I needed a musician to carry a memorial service in a small funeral chapel. It was a last minute request, but she learned 4 songs the evening before the service and came fully prepared to accompany the soloists. This young lady bright so much light and positive energy in addition to her brilliant talent. She even learned the lyrics and totally surprised me when she filled in the lead vocal for one soloist who became too emotional to complete the song. I was/am extremely impressed with Katherine as well as my family. She set the tone for a Celebration of Life, not a funeral.
Katherine played at a Christmas party at our home. She could play anything we asked for and had a beautiful singing voice as well. She led us in singing Christmas carols and entertained throughout the night. She was also just a delightful, fun person to have as part of our family gathering. I will definitely hire her again.
