Lara was super easy to work with and was such an amazing and gifted violinist. There were so many changes to my wedding ceremony and Lara just rolled with all the changes. We provided a list of songs we wanted her to play and she delivered! Most of the songs we asked her to play were contemporary/modern songs which sounded great on the violin. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Lara for your event.

Lara is an absolute professional and did an amazing job at our wedding. Thank you Lara!
Lara was excellent! She is extremely talented and quite a professional. Her playing was great. We asked that she do some speaking/education between songs and she was wonderful, very personable.
She has a wide selection and was very flexible. Hire her! You won't be disappointed.
