5 stars - Dorel Oprea are Highly Recommended
booked Dorel Oprea for their event in West Sussex May 2023

“The function Dorel Opera played at on 26 May was a Celebration of Life for my late wife held at the spectacular Bailiffs court Hotel in Climping, West Sussex. My daughters and I had 40 guests in a relatively small room with a buffet lunch and wanted gentle background music during the event. I submitted a list of 25 songs from the classic Broadway musicals which were a huge part of the theatre life my wife and I had together for over 40 years. Dorel did exactly what we wanted, played superbly all afternoon, and ran through the entire song list we had provided. A brilliant afternoon of background music which was exactly what we wanted. A lovely man and a fabulous pianist.”
