I am a professional violinist, performing in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. Whether as a soloist or with my trio/duo ensemble, I love playing the violin and sharing my music! For over 25 years, I have been performing at weddings, parties, corporate events, art exhibitions and cocktail parties. My traditional and non-traditional wedding music, and cocktail music span the centuries to include classical, romantic, pop, Gospel, musicals, ethnic music, Irish, Jewish, show-tunes and contemporary pop, R and B, rock and more. I have performed in major venues including the Kimmel Center, Academy of Music, The Dupont Theater, The Mann Music Center, The Robin Hood Dell, and over one hundred wedding venues, churches, restaurants, private homes, and parks in the tri-state area.
If you hire me, I will work with you to make your event music awesome! I will provide quality personal attention and guide you in choosing the perfect music to create the atmosphere that will bring joy and elegance to your wedding, cocktail hour or other celebration.
While I can be hired with or without a keyboardist/pianist, I also have a string ensemble named Glorious Strings. It is comprised of one violinist and one cellist for duos, or two violinists plus a cellist if you would prefer a trio for your entertainment. My ensembles are perfect for any size audience.
