Classy, reliable violin solo player (or playing in a dynamic duo – with piano, keyboard or accordion player, both – Moscow Conservatory graduates) for corporate and private parties, weddings, and romantic occasions, Maestro Igor Antipov is a fantastic, thrilling performer playing different music genres - from classical to popular to jazz and country - with perfect technique and passion. Your special event will turn into an unforgettable action, feeling together with Igor and basking in charming sounds of his music. His technical and sound equipment makes him second to none financially as a one-man orchestra, and all at the price of one. Nobody can beat it!
He was an amazing violinist. Perfect fit for our Vinyard wedding. He knew his cues when to change up the song for me to walk down the isle. Very professional. Even let the officiant use his microphone. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks so much for being a part of our day.

What to Expect
I play alone with recorded accompaniment, so you will hear "full size" music. I have all necessary equipment for playing indoors or outdoors venues. I have a big experience of playing for different kind of events, and I can help customers to choose an appropriate music. If needed something specific I can learn your favorite tune, especially if you provide a sheet music in advance.
