My name is Alejandro Olson and I perform classical guitar concerts, provide background music, and enhance wedding ceremonies. I have been playing the classical guitar for over half my life and I want to share my experience with you. My wide variety of music and styles of playing will adhere directly to your needs. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Alejandro worked with our MC just prior to the event. He performed the most lovely music as people were settling into their seats, then in between poems and recollections about my Mom that people would read. At the end he performed a much longer piece. Everyone enjoyed the music. It added so much.
Alejandro provided his website, pricing and a short video in a timely manner prior to the event. I was impressed with his professionalism from start to finish. His music was lovely and just the right mix. Not too overwhelming, but excellent selection, and just the right tone. The ladies loved the music and I would highly recommend Alejandro for any of your entertaining needs! He made my Party Perfect!
Price Range: $100 and up
Gig Length: 30 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
You can expect a well-rounded musician that will give your event the added musical touch you are looking for. Depending on what you want, you can expect to hear songs like Scarborough Fair and Yesterday or you can hear Bach, Giuliani, and Coste.
Whether the event is a wedding or a private concert, I will provide music to make it an experience no one ever forgets.
