**Gigmasters Award Winner Best of 2017, 2016 and 2015 (every year on Gigmasters)! Over fifteen years professional experience. Masters degree in Violin Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.**

William Yun is an award winning professional violinist who performs regularly as a solo violinist and chamber/orchestral musician throughout Southern California. He is available for all types of performance - weddings, concerts, engagements, special occasions, parties, company/corporate/private events, memorial services, studio/session recordings (including arranging string parts), etc.

William received a Masters degree in Violin Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where he was awarded a Conservatory Scholarship, and B.A from UC Berkeley graduating with High Honors. William has served as concertmaster and performed as a soloist with numerous symphonies, including in the Sydney Opera House, Orange County Performing Arts Center, and San Francisco's Davies Symphony Hall. He also performs professionally with string ensembles (duos, trios, quartets) and orchestras for all types of events.

William loves performing music for others. He always aims to please the audience and leave them happy. William happily works and communicates with you to prepare and make sure you are ecstatic with his music service.

William plays well-known, popular classical, romantic and popular jazz standards, and pop/modern up to the present, virtually all from memory. He also enjoys taking special requests - most of his Youtube video samples are by request!

In addition to solo performance, William can also put together duos (2 violins, violin and guitar, violin and cello), string trio or quartet if needed for your event. Please contact for more information on the Jopa String Quartet. Classical to jazz to pop/modern, performing throughout Southern California and beyond.

Note regarding Booking: While William does contract with other performing groups and remains featured on other contractor's sites in videos and marketing, first priority will always be given to bookings made via Gigmasters, or directly via William's website or with the Jopa String Quartet. Additionally, all fees go directly to the musician(s), so we do not need to tack on manager or administrative fees to the client (some less than scrupulous managers charge up to 40%!).

Note regarding Calendar: William's Calendar on his Gigmasters profile only reflects bookings made on Gigmasters and not via William Yun or Jopa String Quartet's websites. To guarantee William performs for you, please book directly with Gigmasters or his website. Please plan ahead and book early, as dates fill up fairly quickly!

Note regarding Authenticity of Video/Audio Samples: Please be aware that Gigmasters apparently does not screen for authenticity of audio samples, as well as audio in videos. To ensure accuracy of sound and presentation, William's profile features only video samples. William's video samples are filmed using simply an iPhone with built-in microphone (no external mic attached) and zero post production editing, remastering or enhancing of sound. This is to provide peace of mind that what you hear is what you will get (and nothing beats live sound so hopefully better)!

Thank you for reading and best wishes!

Dear Bill,

What can I say?  You were true to your words....you played your heart out and I know the ceremony was spectacular because of it.  I am still receiving compliments and I can't thank you enough.  The violin was such a perfect addition to the service and Paul & I were absolutely thrilled as were all of our guests.  If you ever need a reference, feel free to ask-it would be my honor.  

Thank you again.

Warmest regards,
Rashel

Absolutely phenomenal! Everyone loved him and I had so many compliments. I hired him for my wedding ceremony. He was so wonderful and ready to work with. He played so beautifully! And I had a special request with a song that I wanted to be played a specific way and he made it happen. He's amazing and so polite! Hire him for your next event!

There will never be enough words, ever to describe how thankful I am for William. A wedding is suppose to be one of the best days of your life, sadly mine did not go as planned. The Palmer fire broke out & the ranch had to evacuate. William arrived on time, & was able to set up at the ranch. When the evacuation started, William was able to gather info on the change in venue. He waited, our own officiant took off. William waited. He not only set up at our hotel reception but moved for the third time to the golf course. I love that I have video of him playing so beautifully. The one thing that went perfectly at this wedding was him & his amazing talent. Thank you Bill!

Our experience with William Yun was nothing short of spectacular. He took initiative and set up and started playing wonderfully. I had a large amount of people comment on how talented he was. He set the perfect mood for the perfect wedding. He kept constant communication from the day he was contacted. Knowing that he had the music covered made the wedding just that much more stress free. Thank you so much for a lovely evening of beautiful music.
