Mallory played at my church for our annual Thankoffering service. The music she selected was calming, beautiful and added so much to our service. My congregation was very impressed with her music and ability! It was our honor to have her at our service and I highly recommend using her if you need a highly qualified violinist! She arrived on time, was always available via email and had such a pleasant attitude...I would give her 6 star rating if I could!! You will be glad if you hire her!!

Mallory did an outstanding job playing for my daughter and son-in-law's wedding! She arrived early and played exactly what we had asked her to. She began with some music on her guitar as guests arrived, then played her violin when the ceremony began. She was helpful in giving the bride a list of suggested repertoire to play. Extremely professional and courteous. Thank you, Mallory!
