I'm a professional Violinist from Chicago with over 10 years of performance experience.

The music I can provide is perfect for all occasions. Currently performing for weddings, intimate wedding proposals, holiday parties, corporate events, wine tastings, evening soirees, church liturgies, anniversaries, birthdays, bridal showers, baby showers, graduation celebrations, retirement parties, funerals, memorial services and nursing home entertainment.

I can perform as a soloist or can bring in more musicians for a larger ensemble to create a rich and fuller atmosphere.

To amp up the excitement, I can also bring an electric violin setup for a louder effect to perform modern or classic pops songs with instrumental backing upon request!

I have a strong classical music background performing as an orchestral musician with various orchestras in the Chicagoland area. I currently perform with the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra, Northbrook Symphony, Peoria Symphony Orchestra, Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra and New Philharmonic. I'm also an alumnus of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago.

My formal training includes a Bachelor of Music Degree in Violin Performance from the University of Illinois Champaign/Urbana, class of 2013 and a Master of Music Degree in Violin Performance from Roosevelt University's Chicago College of the Performing Arts, class of 2015.

Music has enriched my life and I can use it to enrich the atmosphere of your special event.

I always wanted a violinist to play at my wedding and Brian did not disapoint! Very quick on responding to emails and was able to accomodate any song choice given. Gave excellent recommendations of songs to be played during different parts of the ceremony. His transitions of the songs were flawless! He was nice and early to the ceremony and overall very kind and great to work with.
