I have free-lanced in the Baltimore-Washington area for forty-seven years. I play just about all styles, including light classical, traditional/international folk (including Klezmer,) bluegrass, Irish, swing and jazz. I lead a jazz and swing instrumental duos and trios. In addition to my solo work, I can book groups of two to seven, including a vocalist or ethnic dance teacher. For wedding ceremonies, I play violin or mandolin with optional guitar, cello or piano accompaniment. At the present time I am NOT leading string ensembles larger than a trio (e.g., string quartets.) When I am not leading small groups or soloing, I can frequently be found playing as a sideman in bluegrass groups and even a Gypsy jazz group. The audio clips included on this member profile page are of my light classical solo playing in addition to selected tracks (as indicated by an *) from my self-produced CD originally released in 1994: "A Dream of Peace." I just added a track I composed for the Fabrangen Fiddlers' album "American Chai," originally released in 1978, and now finally available on CD. It is "Avrum's Nigun" (Abram's tune) and is a good sample of the ethnic dance material I still perform.

I am recording an album of original contemporary music and needed Alan's violin and mandolin talents to add to the sound of my songs. We set up are a recording session where Alan was to overdub his violin and mandolin parts to selected songs. He arrived early and rehearsed and worked diligently to add his unique talents to the mix. I could not be happier with the results. Not only were Alan's violin/mandolin parts spot on but his creativity in adding his voice greatly enhanced the music. I heard the songs as I had originally composed them. I highly recommend Alan Oresky for violin and mandolin.

Alan was absolutely amazing in the way that he created a relaxing and beautiful atmosphere. His talent was evident from the time he began. The set list was left completely up to him for our wedding and he was only given the direction of what I wanted the feeling of the day to be. He played for our ceremony and cocktail hour and supplied an amp and mic for our officiant. We couldn't have asked for a better violinist/mandolin player. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a reliable, affordable and talented musician! Thank you Alan !!! ~Mr. and Mrs. Mosley
