I am a classically trained violinist and have been studying violin for over fifteen years. I have been playing professional gigs for ten years. I most frequently play at private dinner parties, weddings, holiday events, gallery openings, religious services, and occasionally with local bands or quartets in the greater Houston area.
The crowd was very pleased by her performance. We will invite her again.
on time professional
Ms Maxwell was very professional. She played great music and came on time for the event. I definitely recommend her.
She played at my wedding and was willing to play any songs I asked for. I went for more traditional songs during the prelude and processional, but I asked for I See the Light from the movie Tangled as the recessional song and it was beautiful. Very easy to work with and very professional.
It was perfect for a Graduation Party in Chelsea Wine Bar, Seabrook.
Kelsey was the perfect addition to our Sweetheart Dinner at Chick-fil-A Silber Road. She arrived prior to the performance to setup, and had a fantastic selection of music for our guests. I would book her again!
Ms. Maxwell was extremely professional and did a wonderful job at our event. She played beautifully.

Maxwell is a very talented violinist. Her selection of music as well her friendly disposition helped make my wife's 60th birthday party a huge success. I would highly recommend her for any event that violin music would add to the ambiance.

My husband and I booked Maxwell Violin to play at our wedding in Dallas in October 2012. They were one of our favorite wedding vendors, both for the amazing performance they gave and the ease of communication and planning!
Kelsey and her associate Sofia played the music for our wedding ceremony and for the cocktail hour that followed. They are both extremely talented violinists, and they played absolutely beautifully. Both their repertoire and their music library is expansive, and the set they played was clearly well-thought out and practiced. I received quite a few compliments from family and guests on our choice of musicians!
They were also really great to work with during the planning process. They were incredibly accommodating of all my specific music and song requests, and provided helpful guidance when I was didn't know what direction to go or when wedding brain kicked in and I lacked the willpower to make another decision (haha). All of my interactions with Kelsey were prompt, professional and easy, which was so helpful to us since we were planning our wedding from out of state.
I can't thank Maxwell Violin enough for the awesome job that they did! My husband and I highly recommend them for any event!

What to Expect
My performances are soulful and engaging to the audience. My client will be incredibly pleased with the musical atmosphere I create.
I started playing professionally through my church and from there started playing weddings, parties, dinners, and various other events. I moved to Houston in 2012 and since then have been expanding my client-base to the greater Houston area. My violin studies were largely classical, and my repertoire includes Baroque, Romantic, Classical, Folk, Spanish Jazz, and Gospel. My most common gigs are weddings, and I have an extensive wedding set-list.
