Why Pay for Live Classical Music?

 

When planning weddings and other events with live musicians, many people automatically turn to solo violinists.  

  • Live music brings elegance and class to any event.

  • Live musicians can instantly alter the style, mood, and dynamic level of music to adapt to a variety of circumstances.

  • Experienced live musicians like myself can customize timing of pieces precisely to fit any aspect of any event, such as a bridal processional.

 

Why hire me?

  • I play on a high-quality instrument that offers a full and rich sound.  

  • I provide a high level of musicianship and skill as a violinist.

  • I have many years of experience performing in all settings, from concert halls to churches to beaches.

  • You will deal directly with me.  I do not have a manager or any other middleman.

 

Where will I play?

  • I perform at events throughout West Michigan.  I am located in Holland, Michigan, and play in cities ranging from Muskegon, Grand Haven, Spring Lake, Grand Rapids, Allendale, Hudsonville, Jenison, Zeeland, Saugatuck, Douglas, Fennville, South Haven and beyond.

  • I play at churches for weddings, services, and funerals.  

  • I play at restaurants, reception halls, and corporate headquarters.

  • All I need is a space about 4 feet square, one armless chair*, and an electricity source (for my music stand light) if the location is dark.

  • I will also play outside under the following circumstances:

    • I require a shady location or tent covering, as direct sunlight is harmful to the varnished wood of my instrument.

    • Temperature must be above 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

    • If it is raining, even slightly, shelter needs to be provided (preferably with sides).  If any rain is blowing into the shelter, I cannot play until the rain subsides due to the valuable nature of my instrument.  There is no refund under these circumstances. 

*For events approximately 60 minutes or less chairs are not necessary--I am happy to stand.
