I have a wide experience spanning the Classical repertory, Jazz standards, Old Time/Celtic fiddling, and anything else that comes my way. As a violinist/conductor, I have Classical training with over ten years of experience in recording sessions, chamber/orchestral performance, and musical theater. I'm open to any style and willing to try anything at least once.
I picked two songs not normally played on a violin. Sarah nailed both of them. On time, pleasant and professional.
Extremely flexible, talented, and overall a pleasure to work with. Played for our wedding ceremony. Absolutely perfect
Sarah showed up a little early, and stayed a little later than planned. She has amazing skills and made my parents special night, that much more special.
Thank you, Sara. You did a fantastic job at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour.
Sarah was great, a perfect addition to the band. She was an easy going player that fit in beautifully. We would definitely recommend her and have her again.
She played at my wedding! She did a great job.
Sarah was a fast-learned. She learned a Bollywood song within 24 hours! She had great communication! She was a real asset to GigSalad, and will keep me coming back here again. She helped with my proposal and she was focused and on point. There were people that came up and tried to talk to her while she was performing to ask if she could perform for them. She kept my song going and made the performance great. I would recommend Sarah to anybody looking for musical skills!!!
