I am a professional violinist that has over 15 years experience playing at weddings, parties, etc. Classical
repertoire. I am Concertmaster of the Two River Chamber Orchestra, and Assistant Concertmaster of the Maryland Symphony. I am also adjunct professor of violin and viola at Shepherd University. You can have confidence in hiring me because this is not my hobby, violin is how I make my living. I can even do strolling violin, and have a string quartet or trio if you would like more than one violin.
Heather made my step-daughters wedding absolutely ethereal! Her playing added elegance to the occasion. It was absolute perfection and I'm so glad we booked her!
Heather organized the string music after listening to our preferences. She performed beautifully and communicated well throughout the whole booking process. We were 100% pleased with the process and 110% delighted with the music!
Response from Heather Austin-Stone:
Thank you so much for the kind words!
