Lennon Aldort has been playing the piano since the age of three and is a graduate of the University of Washington. He performs regularly at the Canlis restaurant and the Space Needle, and has also played in venues such as The Rainier Club and The Ruins. He can tailor his performance to any musical style in any kind of setting.
We hired Lennon for background music for a Holiday Party for our staff. It was a breakfast, and Lennon showed up early and was professional and easy to work with. He responded quickly to all communication and was able to quickly adjust to last minute changes we had made. He is an exceptionally talented piano player and was a fantastic addition to our environment. If you are looking for great music for your event, I encourage you to hire Lennon!
Although we didn't personally get to experience Lennon too much (so busy during a wedding!), he was absolutely wonderful. All of our guests commented on how wonderful his playing was, and it fit in great with our outdoor wedding venue! I only wish we could have heard more than we did (the head table sat the furthest away from the piano), but what we did experience was great. I hope we'll have a need for Lennon again in the future!
Lennon played the ceremony music for our wedding at Canlis, as well as the music during the cocktail hour that followed. His playing and selections were absolutely beautiful and really helped to make our day more beautiful than I could have imagined. We met with Lennon a few weeks before the wedding to discuss song selections, and he was very helpful and kind. We followed up with him a few days later via email, and he was very responsive. Even though the wedding was a few weeks ago, our guests are still commenting on how lovely the piano music was. I can't recommend him highly enough!
We asked Lennon to perform at a party in my building and play for 3 hours. The event turned out wonderfully. We mostly wanted standards and he matched the tone throughout the evening perfectly. So pleased we found him and that he was available! I also know we only barely tapped into his repertoire.
He was also very easy to communicate with before and during the party.
Would definitely recommend him for your event!
My now-husband and I got married at Canlis in Seattle and we needed a pianist to play for the ceremony and reception. We looked for a while (pianists are a somewhat rare breed) and finally found just what we were looking for: Lennon! He came highly recommended from the venue itself (where he plays a regular shift) and was a definite gem. He is young, amazingly talented, and so easy to work with. I had sent him a list of a few very important songs that I was hoping he could play (mostly contemporary/current songs that sounded cool in piano form) and said he already knew most of them but would learn the ones he didn't! I was extremely impressed by this and even more impressed by his performance on the actual day. People were talking about him all night and I was so proud that he was playing at our wedding. The other songs he picked fit the mood perfectly and I nearly died of happiness when he started playing the Downton Abbey theme during dinner which I had never even thought to ask him to play. His performance during the ceremony was spot-on and he was careful to make sure of the order and timing in the days beforehand. He was also very professional and stayed in touch with my husband about breaks and his end-time. He was worth every penny of his fee!
