I am a classically trained violinist, composer and performer. I have 25 years of experience which include the following: Orchestra, accompaniment, band, studio and solo performance. My stage experience includes, concerts, corporate events, private parties, resident artist/restaurants, theater productions, weddings and more. My repertoire consists of many genres of music; however, it can be tailored to meet your specific need. I provide a wonderful music experience for your event.
Johnathan was an absolute gem. His song selections and artistry were perfect. I would highly recommend Johnathan to anyone looking for a talented artist with a very warm personality.
Jonathan has done a couple of events with me and both have been stellar. His professionalisms and musical talents are among the best.
Jonathan was awesome! He was the perfect addition to an amazing night. His wide range of musical abilities made our event outstanding! I enjoyed all the variety he provided. He also had a terrific personality and was fun to chat with. I would highly recommend him for any event that requires music.
Jonithan was punctual, polite, fun to be with, and a SPECTACULAR violinist! He played in the background, I proposed at the MonteLucia, and it was perfect! We talked for a few and thanked him so much!!! What a professional and terrific soul he is!!! He’s our five star man and we will use him as often as we can!!!
After my fiance and I had to cancel our large wedding due to the pandemic, we decided to do a small ceremony with only two weeks notice. Jonathan performed at both the ceremony as well as our "drive around" where we had our guests drive by to say hello. He absolutely elevated both parts of the wedding and it truly would not have been the same without him. With little to no direction from us, he managed to pick songs that perfectly fit the mood of the event and made it feel like a real wedding. We are already talking with family about hiring him again once we no longer have to social distance!
Whether for a small intimate gathering or a larger party, we can not recommend him enough and will be singing his praises to anyone who is thinking about hiring a live musician!
Jonathan put on a memorable performance during a backyard, pandemic proposal I put together. He was very flexible given the circumstances and learned two songs in under a week in addition to playing a number of songs from his eclectic playlist.
He was exceptionally friendly and very easy to work with in the days before the proposal. I would recommend him for any event from an art gallery to a wedding to a dinner party.
He was professional and awesome! He sounded beautiful.
Jonathan was incredible good! From been flexible with scheduling and been flexible with the songs I needed to be played and helping my proposal be a complete surprise to my girlfriend. Jonathan went above and beyond my expectations and really came though for me when playing the Violin to make my proposal special. He was also very proper, on time and professional. I would highly, highly recommend him to any one and I hope to work with him again in the future. He gets a 10 start review in my book!
Jonathan is a class act, he incorporated holiday music in to his play list and played requests given by our guests. I received so many compliments on Jonathan, everyone enjoyed listening to him, it was so relaxing and festive. I would HIGHLY recommend Jonathan to anyone looking for a violinist or musical entertainment for their event or party. He was recommended by one of your employees, so I googled Jonathan Levingston and loved what I heard and saw on his website. I am so happy I booked him for our event. I will definitely have him back for our future events. ~ Vicki Farrington, Voya Financial
Best Violinist hands down. Jonathan was all the talk and rage by my guest after performing at my wedding. I really appreciate the service and professionalism.
Jonathan Levingston did a phenomenal job as our violinist. He was able to provide perfect renditions of our requested pop songs for our bridal processional. It sounded amazing and was a beautiful and integral part of our special day. Thank you!!!
Jonathan is phenomenal! Everyone loved his music and he played everything I had selected and more. The guests all commented on how fantastic he was. He made our wedding extra special!! I highly recommend him if you are planning your wedding. Thank you again Jonathan😊
We are so pleased that Jonathan played at our wedding today. His music was lovely and our guests enjoyed every moment. He was so professional to work with, ensuring that we had the right music selections for the ceremony. He is so talented - can’t say enough good things about him. Hope to be able to use his services again and highly recommend him.
It was the best surprise I could give my wife, and she loved it. He was very professional and great. I will be calling him again to do more events in the future. Thanks again for making my surprise anniversary the best ever.
Jonathan is an artist who is professional, talented, and timely. Your expectations of him will be exceeded! We would hire him for any event! He is absolutely amazing!
Jonathan is an amazing professional musician. He played all the music we love beautifully and with passion. We would definitely ask him to play for us again. Thank you, Jonathan!
Not only is Jonathan an amazing talent...he is also such a professional, so polite and so fun! Our event was a daytime preview of a beautiful home for sale combined with a luncheon for 180 of the top Real Estate Brokers in the Valley. It was mentioned by so many guests how wonderful he was. I intend to have Jonathan at many more of our events! Thank you! He's a hit!
Everyone was amazed by his performance. I would hire him again in the future. Jonathan L. thank you, again.
You made it memorable and unforgotten with the music you played especially the Ave Maria.
Jonathan was our violinist for my engagement proposal. His personality and service were absolutely incredible. We had planned on having him play outside, but there was rain in the forecast. Jonathan was flexible with the location and it went off perfectly. His music truly made the moment and we'll always remember it. Definitely book Jonathan, I know I will for future events!
Wow! Jonathan was flawless and what beautiful music. He's also very personable and dressed beautifully. Highly recommended. Made the wedding ceremony perfect
Great crowd entertainer. We truly enjoyed having him for our event. It made all the difference.
Jonathan made our day so beautiful and special. He is beyond professional and talented. Hiring him and having him part of our wedding was the best decision and one we will make again for our next event. Thank you!
Jonathan was the perfect addition to our ceremony! He played all of the songs we wanted to hear and performed them beautifully. Book him for your event, you won't be sorry! :)
Jonathan was amazing! On time, and played great music for our ceremony. We also appreciated his communication!
Absolutely wonderful! We will have him back again soon!
You were a fabulous addition to our wedding!
Thank you for your professionalism and, of course, beautiful music!
We truly appreciate your coming from Sedona to perform at our special day in Phoenix!

Jonathan was great -- learned the songs I requested for our engagement in less than 48 hours and is an amazingly talented musician. He was the perfect addition to our engagement. Highly recommended.
Jonathan is a great guy and exceptional violinist. He has a great personality and it felt like he was a part of the family. He helped make the engagement perfect! Can't wait to have him at the wedding. :-)
Jonathan added the perfect touch to our art show and auction. He played a variety of music that fit our event and everyone loved him. We will be looking to use him more for future events.
Jonathan dispelled each of my worries about having hired him for my mother-in-law’s birthday party at a local restaurant. He was on time, very pleasant, played absolutely beautifully, and played the songs I’d requested. The 30 guests each made a point of telling me how much they enjoyed his playing. The volume was perfect for the event, though Jonathan told me he could adjust the volume either way. My husband later said, “I don’t know how you found this guy, but I think he was the highlight of the party.”
I would not hesitate to recommend Jonathan Levingston.
How wonderful Jonathan is! I hired him to play a house party last year, a Christmas Gift for my roommates. A Dear Heart, Talented and Entertaining! Playing Classical, Jazz, Original works, and taking requests.
I see Jonathan when he performs locally and his show is always a wonderful musical experience!
Thank you Jonathan!
Jonathan has performed at after parties for the Prescott Film Festival for the past two years. He is a very professional and talented artist that creates an elegant atmosphere that is both entertaining and mesmerizing. As a non profit organization, Jonathan gave us a very reasonable price and was even willing to travel all the way to Prescott to perform. I look forward to having him back next year!
I have heard Jonathan on several occasions and his musical expertise never ceases to amaze me. He is a true performer, down-to-earth and so talented. I would highly recommend him for any event.
Our wedding ceremony was made complete with Jonathan's talent, expertise, and reliability. He learned difficult musical pieces such as songs from Enya and Yanni. He played an extra two hours and adjusted to last minute requests including an improvisation with piano that was perfect during our sand ceremony. We recommend Jonathan for the most memorable events. Thank you

What to Expect
Expect to hear things on a violin that you don't necessarily associate with a violin. Very original approach and experienced subtleties make for a polished performance. Outside of the obvious, I can perform in and out of most genres giving me variety and flexibility to my listeners.
