ChicViolinista is comprised of sisters Pauline Taylor (violin and piano), Adina Taylor (violin and piano), and Lydia Taylor (cello). We play classical music and also cover songs in a variety of genres. With our instrumentation we can provide a piano trio, string trio or duo, or solo violin/cello with or without piano accompaniment. Our performances range from weddings to business parties to holiday orchestras and we would love to include your next event!
ChicViolinista could not have been a better investment for our wedding in John Bryan State Park. I inundated them with messages, song requests, and various questions only a week before the wedding, yet ChicViolinista was quick to respond and ultra-accomodating! My fiance, now-wife, had some pretty specific song requests, and they immediately furnished a playlist of songs that was PERFECT.
Also, they showed up 30 minutes before their report time, the guests LOVED them, and I only heard soaring reviews from the people who interacted with them. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much for being so great for our wedding day--we're very thankful.
My wedding was absolutely beautiful! Thank you to ChicViolinista for playing at my garden ceremony. It really added a classy, elegant, soft touch to my event. I can't thank you enough!
My boss and I and the entire staff we so
Pleased and happy
Very kind, professional and played wonderfully at our charity dinner party.
Thank you very much for making our evening more special and beautiful.
I highly recommend Pauline and Adina for any event, big or small.
Excellent performers, extremely friendly, professional and easy to work with.
I would highly recommend them for your special event!
ChicViolinsta duo were great! The sisters added so much to my daughter's wedding ceremony. They were very timely with their communications and arrived ahead of schedule. I very much appreciated their contribution to give her the wedding she wanted.
Describing the ChicViolinista ladies at our event in one word.. PERFECT! They were pure class with an abundance of talent! Thank you ladies for providing the beautiful music for the Mercer Health Charity Ball! God Bless!
The Taylor sisters, Pauline and Adina gave my mother's 100th birthday party a touch of elegance. After arriving right on time, they played beautifully for an hour and a half without a break during a lovely outdoor dinner in our backyard on the first day of summer. Their music gave the event a touch of class, subtle enough to allow for comfortable conversation, yet bold enough to command one's pleasured attention during the inevitable pauses in congenial discourse. Classically trained, their performance was precise and disciplined but it was not lacking in emotional content and they were kind enough to accommodate my request for a number of specific popular Italian selections played with their own provocative interpretation. Thank you to ChicViolinista for helping to make our event a happy success.
This pair of violinists was a great addition to our wedding mass. They played beautifully and worked well with the cantor and organist.
We were very pleased with chicViolinista's professionalism and ability to play whatever we requested.
They were very easy to work with & our ceremony music was beautiful.
