Despite the measures that were in place in Frittemahof, the residents really enjoyed Anna This is certainly worth repeating on a special holiday.
It was less suitable for this target group
Performance went very well. Many positive messages from other guests. Very happy with it. -Rick & Gwenda
On behalf of our residents (residential care and treatment centre Ielânen, Sneek) I can say that for one hour we enjoyed Anna's talent and the beautiful violin concert. It was very quiet, sometimes with your eyes closed you could enjoy and sometimes you could hum along with the recognizable classical sounds. Anna was the very first small-scale concert we were allowed to offer the residents after the Corona period. We will certainly invite Anna again, to take us with her in her beautiful violin music. Thank you Anna!
It was great what Anna has played beautifully. Completely to our liking
Satisfied, there was a miscommunication between the bride and Anna. But apart from that it was very good!
Anna gave a great performance during the buffet at my wife's birthday party (SARA). Virtuoso and sensitive! She played all the songs that were asked for and added something herself. That someone with such a CV was available for us...Chapeau Anna!
