I'm a musician & music contractor. I hired Lubo Velickovic of "Divertimento" to play the violin for 2 memorial services. He is extremely professional and an accomplished musician of the highest caliber. One service called for violin & harp duo, during which Lubo was required to play solo for half the time. His playing was exquisite. His choice of musical selections and manner of playing was so sensitive, intuitive, and respectful of the occasion and situation. As a chamber musician, he is an extremely versatile player of all styles and can improvise on the spot if necessary. The other service called for a chamber ensemble. But the challenge was that the client had a very usual request and we had only one day (on the Thanksgiving Holiday) to fulfill getting the instruments and create an arrangement for the next morning. Lubo worked with me, above and beyond the call of duty, on a holiday to make sure we had what we needed! We couldn't have done it without Lubo! Thank you Lubo!!!
