I have hired Sofia several times and she is very professional and has a great sound.
Sofia was amazing. She arrived early and exceeded expectations! Highly recommend her for any event.
Played a few times with her. Phenomenal tone quality on trumpet, and she has a really professional sound. Definitely a good addition to any horn section, or even as a solo musician!
