So thankful for Tona Brown coming to my wedding proposal (in 30 degree weather none the less) and playing beautiful pieces of violin music from the Final Fantasy series! She came prepared and on time! She even accomadated me by coming for a quick rehersal and finding the correct music sheets for the song that I wanted her to play. All in all she did a great job and would recommend her to anyone who needs a musican to play for any event!
