Hello, my name is Sadie Glass and I am available to perform at your next event. I play the french horn and also teach trumpet. If you would like a historic performance, I also play the natural horn and baroque horn. Please contact me with any questions, and I would be happy to provide music for you.
I had the pleasure of having Sadie Glass perform at my wedding this past May. To say that I was impressed with her musical talent is an understatement. She plays beautifully and has excellent taste in sophisticated repertoire. Sadie handles her clients with a high level of professionalism and respect, and is very thorough with all of the details that needed to be communicated. I could not have been more pleased to work with this very talented and professional musician.

What to Expect
I am able to provide any genre of music from classical to pop. If you wish, I may also be able to contract other musicians to form various small chamber ensembles for your event, such as woodwind, brass, strings, and harp. I perform on period horns, the natural horn and baroque horn, and would be happy to provide historic performances. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and visit (link hidden) for more information.

Additional Booking Notes
I do not need very much in order to perform, I just ask that you let me know the venue (indoor, outdoor, etc...), and that the weather isn't too extreme (ie - too cold in the winter). I am able to bring my own stand and chair.
