Maria did such a wonderful job on our Palm Sunday service earlier this year. Her beautiful playing was such a blessing and addition to our service. She is such a professional and yet easy to work with - such a joy to have her be part of a blessed part of our church life. You will not be disappointed if you have her participate in your event or church service.
I've worked with Maria in several musicals and have always been impressed with her level of musicianship and professionalism. She's very easy to work with, very dependable, and a great player! Highly recommended!
Maria was hired to perform in a brass quintet for my wedding, as well as in a small jazz ensemble for the cocktail hour. She was very professional in every communication we shared and in her performances. She participated in two rehearsals where she was always prepared and shared knowledgable information with all. On the day of, Maria played beautifully! I still have family and friends that attended my wedding who talk about "that trumpet!" It rang through the church so well and I was honored to walk down the aisle to the gorgeous sounds. During the cocktail hour, more instruments were added to the brass quintet to make a jazz group. Maria showed knowledge of having classical chops and the ability to play in MANY other genres/styles of music as we asked for everything from jazz to movie scores. I absolutely would hire her again!
I hired Maria for a Christmas Morning service. While the service was early, she arrived on time. Playing was superb, with great blending with the organ and singers, and great tone. Highly recommended!
She is phenomenal, professional and kind. She surely made out event unforgettable!
Two thumbs up.

I can provide my musical services as a solo trumpet, or as part of a brass quintet (2 trumpets, French horn, trombone, tuba). I will either perform the repertoire you have selected, or I can provide my own. I can work with you to create an arrangement of your choice for an additional cost.
My quote will reflect the day of the event. I can meet up with you to rehearse for an additional fee. I am happy to work within your budget to find the best solution for your event.
