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 - 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.
