Erika Gundesen


Pianist and Music Director

ARCT, BMus, MPerf


Looking for some background music for your gala, banquet, wedding or other event? I specialize in Classical piano and opera, but I can also throw in some pop, musical theatre or jazz fusion to suit your tastes.  I am also open to working with singers and intrumentalists within these genres.  I do take requests, but they must be given at least a week in advance.  I prefer to have a complete setlist worked out before the event begins.  See some example repertoire below!


I am very experienced with livery dinners in the City of London.
