CP Music Cape Town

Hannelize Gravell

My violin journey began when I was 9 years old. With many years practicing the art, I later completed my music degree at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. After University I started my career as music teacher and violinist at weddings and events.

I use both my acoustic and electric violin depending on the situation. With my electric violin I make use of a Boss RC30 looper pedal (which I have seen Ed Sheeran use… just saying) to create an exquisite sound ensemble -which is so much more exciting than just playing with backtracks. I simply love teaching and making music! It would be my greatest pleasure to share it with you.

Nina Kolev, Violinist

Nina was born into a musical family. Both of her parents play musical instruments professionally for the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra in Durban. They also have their own very popular Allegro strings entertainment enterprise, specializing in live music for weddings and functions. Ninagot her first violin at the age of three and played at her first concert at the age of five.

Throughout her schooling, she started playing for weddings and functions with her parents as a member of their Allegro string quartet.She attended St Mary`s DSG, Kloof, one of the top high schools in South Africa, where she was the head of the string quartet under the tutorship of her father.

They became so popular that they were playing at every function at the school and were on occasion booked to perform for weddings and functions privately. In 2014 she toured Poland, Latvia and Lithuania, accompanying the school choir with her violin at the World Choir Games.

She has made numerous appearances as a soloist with the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra and has won several awards at music competitions such as the eThekwini Eisteddfod. Currently she is studying medicine at the University of Cape Town, but what she enjoys doing most is playing music at weddings and contributing to making it the most magical day possible.
