forte management

great musicians + great music = great occasions!

Forte Management is a small agency dealing with
musicians of an exceptional calibre who have a passion for their art.

The Director - Rod Faulkner - was leader of the renowned Colibri Guitar Quartet for 13 years,
and brings his wealth of experience of performance and audience needs to this venture.

Although fees are quoted for the performers, these are open to negotiation where small 'tours' are arranged in liason between several venues over a short period of time. For instance, a three day tour in East Anglia would allow maybe three or four venues to share travelling costs and each benefit from reduced fees!

For further details of availability, programmes or bookings contact
the Director - Rod Faulkner by email at
or by mobile phone at 07974 801 682.
