Roger Hughes

I visited Cardiff Violins for the first time in the hope that I might find a cello that would suit me. I am in my seventies and have played my first cello for about 35 years. On arrival, I immediately felt the warmth of the greeting from Cecile and Chris and was offered a coffee which was most welcome after my long drive. I was taken up to a room full of cellos and met a young student from the Welsh College of Music and Drama. She was most helpful and played the various cellos so that I could hear the sounds of the different instruments. She also listened to my playing and then left me to myself. Amateurs often feel intimidated when playing in front of strangers but she put me at my ease and I was able to concentrate on playing and ultimately choosing a new cello. I’m very happy with my Con Brio and look forward to many years of playing, even at my age!  Thank you Chris and Cecile for a very pleasant and rewarding morning and I hope to come again in the future
