Hello and thank you for reading my profile. My name is William Yun, and I am a violinist available for all types of performance. I received a Masters degree in Violin Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and B.A from UC Berkeley.
I have over 15 years of professional experience playing weddings, concerts, special occasions, private events, company events, memorials, recordings, and gigs, and I really enjoy performing for all types of events. There is nothing better than live music at a private event or wedding, and I believe I provide the absolute best live music experience available, as a solo violinist and with members of our string quartet, the Jopa String Quartet.
I have played and served as concertmaster/soloist with numerous symphonies, including in the Sydney Opera House, Orange County Performing Arts Center, and San Francisco's Davies Symphony Hall. I have also performed professionally with string groups and orchestras/symphonies.
In addition to well-known popular classical, I also love playing pop/modern, and jazz standards (pretty much anything you request - my song list alone has grown to over 10 pages, which I play from memory!).
For weddings I know all the traditional wedding repertoire, and I always do my best to accommodate special requests.
I love performing and my goal is always to please the audience and leave them happy. I always give my very best effort to enhance my clients' events through music. Reviews can be found below, and referrals provided upon request. I do my best to please!
I also can do duos (2 violins, violin/guitar, violin/cello), string trios or quartets if needed, with the fantastic, talented members of the Jopa String Quartet.
Thank you, have a great day, and I look forward to meeting you! - 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.
