We booked Calvin for our wedding, and I am thoroughly pleased with his services and pricing! He played every request that I made and even learned some songs very quickly. His communication and professionalism was great! He brought class and elegance to the atmosphere of our wedding. Our guests inquired about him and enjoyed him. I would most definitely recommend his services to anyone.
Violin performance was played on my wedding ceremony. The most beautiful songs were chosen and played. Love the melody, atmosphere, and the flow of the music, it all added up to a romantic and memorable wedding ceremony to us. Music was played in high quality, our pianist and violinist were in excellent harmony, the length and combinations of the performance was just right. It gave a romantic atmosphere, at the same time had a nice effect to draw attention to the sweet of the couples. I like the service and grade overall 5 stars.
