David has 25 years of performing experience on the violin, piano and church organ at many society events including black-tie galas, weddings and private parties. He specializes in Wedding ceremony music and the art of strolling violin fulfilling guest requests with an impressive repertoire of genres - classical, Broadway, ethnic, popular, gypsy, bluegrass, blues and jazz from the Great American songbook. As a virtuoso violinist and pianist, David has a brilliant technique which lends itself to expressive interpretations of music. Always tailoring his performances to reflect the spirit of the occasion, David receives compliments from hosts and guests on a regular basis.

Critically acclaimed by Washington Post music critic Tim Page and complimented by entertainer Harry Connick Jr, David is a veteran of the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland where he played original compositions in a unique world music ensemble which opened for the Brecker Brothers, Tito Puente and the Mingus Dynasty.

"David has a flare for making each event his own. He made our wedding a completely unique experience with his remarkable solo violin performance and great organist and pianist skills. Not many people are willing to take the time to help with every selection and layout, and he did. David is talented and his music is truly beautiful." - Tracey H, Bride, Newington, CT

"David is blessed with a gift of creating beautiful music. David shared his expertise in helping us select each musical piece for our wedding ceremony. Our musical selection was exquisitely rendered using the violin, electronic piano and organ. Thank you David for helping make our wedding ceremony truly elegant and unforgettable." - Larissa R, Bride, Newington, CT

"David Dyson's deep, rich and expressive sound adds color and beauty wherever he plays, whether in the concert hall or in a church setting. His versatility in style is impressive and enables him to play both serious violin repertoire and lighter sounds with ease. David is truly a gem in the Connecticut music scene." - Father David C., Director of Music, Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center

"Through his musical talent and appreciation for beauty, David brings an exceptional level of rhythm and expression to each of his pieces. Whether performing before a capacity group in an auditorium, providing violin background for a formal event or leading congregational singing on the organ, his ability to fit the music to the occasion enhances the quality of each performance. We are indeed fortunate to have his services available to us." - Maureen Reardon, RSM, PhD, Senior Vice President for Mission Services and Compliance, Mercy Community Health

"The President's reception was all the more elegant-and melodious-for your wonderful performance. Thank You for sharing your talents with Mercy Community Health!"- Christine Looby, Director of Community Relations, Mercy Community Health



"David's music was truly a highlight of our wedding day. After listening to our ideas, David presented selections that perfectly complimented our taste and expectations of how the day should be. Arriving early for our ceremony, David played the church's magnificent pipe organ, as well as the piano and violin. During the reception, he paid tribute to our ethnic backgrounds by playing traditional Irish and Chinese music which delighted all guests. David's professionalism and music was a significant contribution to a wonderful day. " - Patrick Collins, Providence, Rhode Island
