The Electric Cello show is an exciting and sensual fusion of classical and pop music performed by this stunning young blonde. The performance is enriched by dynamic backing tracks to give a full multi-instrument sound and the result is a unique musical and visual spectacular which will keep the audience spellbound.

A typical repertoire includes pop versions of all-time classics such as Adagio for Strings by Barber, Bach’s Toccata and Fugue, Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire and Coldplay’s Viva La Vida.

A popular format for the show is to begin with up to 1 hour of elegant classical cello music as background to a drinks reception or during dinner. This is followed by a dramatic change in both costume and tempo which immediately gets the audience’s attention and the main, high energy performance begins. The length of the main show is agreed in advance with the client but is typically 20 minutes.

For events up approximately 200 guests a PA system is included as standard.

Lizzy is also available for an evening of pop and/or classical background music played on her acoustic or electric cello, for up to two 45 minute sets.
