André Mendes da Costa

Whether you are planning your wedding or organising a corporate function, enhance your upcoming special event with beautiful live piano background music performed by award-winning pianist Andre Mendes da Costa.

An experienced live performer for over 25 years, Andre’s love for music and for the piano is reflected in the feeling and expression found in his playing, and his subtle ability to read the crowd and play accordingly has made him a popular choice for those who want music to suit a wide variety of age groups. Andre's piano music will help your guests relax and enjoy their surroundings as they arrive, while at the same time lending an understated elegance to the occasion that only an experienced musician can provide.

André has since been sought after for other high-profile public functions, such as Wairarapa’s annual Bride of the Year, where discreet yet top quality live music has been an integral part of the proceedings.
