$75 - $150 per hour
Hello, my name is Brenna Carey, I am a student violinist from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I study violin performance at the University of Minnesota under the instruction of violin professor Sally O'Reilly.

I have an extensive background in the classically-trained arts and I spend most of my time improving my skills and knowledge of music. I began my violin instruction 12 years ago when I was 6 years old, and the influence that music has played in my life throughout the years inspired me to pursue music as a career.

I have participated in 4 different orchestras over the course of 8 years including the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies, the nationally touring and competition award-winning South High School Chamber Orchestra, Minnesota Allstate orchestra, and the University of Minnesota Symphony Orchestra. I have been playing and studying chamber music for 5 years under the instruction of my former and current violin teachers, and many great coaches such as Bruce Coppock of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. I am a violinist in a student-formed string quartet called the Aerios String Quartet that performs for a variety of occasions in the greater twin cities area and has been performing since 2010. I have had many amazing opportunities to travel in and out of the country to play music as well as grow as an artist within my own community. I've been fortunate enough to work with coaches from both the Minnesota Orchestra and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and play in venues such as the Ordway and Orchestra Hall. I plan on continuing my musical studies to eventually become a symphony musician and private violin teacher.

I have multiple years of experience in performing solo violin and chamber music for weddings, fundraisers, holiday events, and pretty much any occasion you could think of! I mainly perform classical works, but I can also perform violin repertoire from a variety of other genres. I can learn and memorize practically anything you would need, as long as I have sheet music for it. If I have the opportunity to rehearse and play with a band, I can also improvise. If need be, I can even arrange versions of your favorite songs for me to play!

I have a flexible schedule and negotiable pay rate, and I have a contract that I like to use with my clients to ensure a professional engagement that is beneficial for both parties. I would be thrilled to work with you and help make your occasion even more special with the gift of live music!
