I have been a professional musician for 30 plus years on Major Cruise lines, 20 of those years were with Cunard and 8 of those were on the QE2.
I am delighted to recommend Rebecca. I had the pleasure of working with Rebecca on about 3 contracts for P&O, she is an extremely knowledgeable musician on so many aspects of the profession, and has such a gift for knowing what is required from the woodwind section in any given musical genre. Snap this talented young lady up asap, I highly recommend her.
