Your Event Music’s director Kimi Lye is an accomplished violinist and pianist with a history of performing on stage at top classical venues (The Royal Festival Hall, The Royal Albert, RAM Duke’s Hall) and the best London Event Venues (The Natural History Museum, Kensington Palace, Mansion House).
After founding and making Niche London String Quartet into one of the most popular event entertainment options in the UK clients would often ask for other musicians to perform with Niche at their events – the natural step was to set up Your Event Music Ltd!
Using her links with a selection of the best performing musicians across London, and her many years of experience booking the best modern musical entertainment for events and weddings, now 1000s of guests every year are entertained and thrilled by Your Event Music musicians (millions if you count TV performances!).
Described as highly organised, talented and caring she will personally cater and manage the entertainment for your event with enthusiasm, and will share her vast events background to help you craft the the perfect experience for you and your guests.
Biography – Kimi dreamed of being a musician from the age of 8 and after playing violin for two months! As a student she was awarded a fine instrument loan and was appointed leader of the Hertfordshire Schools’ Symphony Orchestra. Simultaneously, she led four other top orchestras of Hertfordshire, touring Barcelona and playing solo in Barcelona Cathedral and RAM Duke’s Hall. Upon leaving for university she was awarded the most promising musician award and won the Joe Selo Ensemble Competition leading ‘The Cabaret Quartet’.
Going on to study at RHUL with a Founders’ Scholarship she graduated with a Bmus(Hons) degree, specialising in solo performance (taught at GSMD by Prof. Mark Knight), and quartet performance.
