"Stephanie Krell is an accomplished violinist, who displays the music of an artist in her playing. She has played as part of an ensemble for both of my daughter's weddings, and has also played the violin as part of an ensemble in which I participated. Her reading and intonation are impeccable and she is able to improvise. Stephanie is always professional in all aspects of performance and ensemble work. Her playing is an enhancement to any presentation."
