Allison is a Missouri-based violinist specializing in classical violin, but can play other styles such as Jazz standards, Broadway, etc.
Allison can provide strolling violin music and can also put together duets (harp/violin or 2 violins), string trios and quartets.
Allison did a fantastic job helping me propose to my now fiance'. :)
She arrived early, played BEAUTIFULLY, and was soooo kind. She is a most gifted violinist, and I hope to have a reason to invite her to play agin - a MUST HAVE if you need a violinist in Springfield!
The music was perfect and our guests loved it. Thank you so much for making our day even better.
Allison did a great job playing as a string trio at our wedding. She was easy to work with, very friendly, and the music was absolutely incredible. Everything began and ended very well and flowed throughout the entire ceremony. I was thankful to have a violinist I could rely on and trust on my special day! Thank you, Allison!!
Response from Allison Steiner:
Thank you so much, Olivia! I loved playing at your wedding, and you were such a delight to work with!
We had Allison on a couple of different occasions. Allison's amazing music was over the top every time. A beautiful girl with great talent and a pleasant personality!!
I would tell anyone that she will make your event!!!
Allison recently played at our wedding ceremony at the Drury Stone Chapel in Springfield. She was fantastic! Extremely easy to work with, responsive and absolutely beautiful music. Would highly recommend her!
Allison was the violinist for a wedding I coordinated last week at Dogwood Canyon Nature Park. Allison was professional, pleasant, accommodating to the bride and groom, worked with me well on cues for switching songs, a beautifully skilled musician and a genuinely nice person. I will be highly recommending Allison to any of my future brides looking for a violinist!
Allison and her quartet provided a beautiful musical backdrop for our son's wedding. She was always pleasant to work with, arrived on time (even with a drive of over two hours in substantial rain), and delivered exactly what we wanted. We couldn't have been more pleased.
It was a pleasure working with Allison and the string quartet on a wedding that I coordinated. I cannot comment on value, pricing was negotiated with parents of the couple and I have no knowledge of value. But, read on! Allison is very professional and I would be thrilled to work with her again. They arrived on time together. They began playing on time and the selections were beautiful and appropriate. Communication before and during the ceremony was excellent. We did not have the opportunity to practice together before hand but it didn't matter. She returned all my phone calls, we discussed the ceremony timing by phone ahead of time. During the wedding, Allison and I were able to watch each other closely for cues and it went perfectly. She paid close attention. I would be glad to work with Allison again on any project.
I was so excited to have Allison play at our outdoor wedding. The scenery was beautiful and Allison's talent with the violin made for the perfect atmosphere. She was very professional, on-time, and the guests loved her. I would definitely recommend her services and be willing to use her again for any special event!
Allison was not available for the wedding I coordinated, but her recommendation of her talented student, Claire Burrell, was perfect. Claire did an amazing job, sounded excellent and was very professional & easy to work with. The wedding ceremony was greatly enhanced with her performance.
The string trio at our son's and daughter-in-law's wedding was truly awesome! All of our guests enjoyed the beautiful sounds and talents despite the rain drops and made the celebration truly a memorable event. Many thanks to all of the very talented musicians, it was amazing!
My wife and I hired Allison and company for our wedding ceremony recently. No long winded explanation is needed to express simply that she was the perfect musician for the job. Incredibly helpful in helping us choose songs for the ceremony and even was able to cater to my somewhat eclectic taste and learn new material I was insistent on. Very easy to work with from start to finish! Top Notch Artist.
Allison played the violin at my wedding recently. She did a wonderful job communicating with me prior to the wedding. I had two songs that I wanted and asked Allison to help with the rest. The most important piece was from a scene in my favorite movie, and when I walked down the aisle to this song, everything was perfect. Allison played it so beautifully, and I could not have dreamed of a more perfect day.
We just hired Allison and her trio to play during a wedding ceremony in a remote farm location for a very special group. They were outstanding. Allison was so wonderful to work with during the song selection process and was also so flexible and accommodating as there was travel involved and logistics to handle to pull this particular ceremony off. I highly recommend her as well as her trio. They completely made the event for us!!
I have recommended Allison Steiner as a single player as well as with her ensembles and all of our guests have always been pleased with their experience. She is a fantastic violinist and truly a professional. Highly recommended!!
Allison is a fantastic violinist! She is always easy to work with, ready and willing to learn new material and give her expertise on song selection. She is always dressed professionally, always prompt to an event, and stays until completion of time hired. I have also experienced her larger ensembles which are great as well. Allison is truly a professional and should be desired for any wedding or corporate event.
Allison and two others performed at our wedding and did a fantasitic job. They sounded great and played beautiful pieces for our occasion.
Allison Steiner played for my wedding ceremony in Eureka Springs, AR and she did a lovely job. She called me prior to our event to ask if there were any request, and when I told her no and she could select the music- she selected a beautiful piece. It was a great experience and I appreciate her enduring the heat so we could have music on our special day! Thank you!
Allison was wonderful to work with. I needed a string trio for my wedding ceremony in Branson/Kimberling City MO. She easily accomodated some really unsual pieces I asked for and the quality of music was wonderful. Communication with her was a breeze and the price was reasonable as well. If you need strings for any occasion Allison is who you want!!!
St. Louis MO
She was fabulous with her duo.
Price Range: $150-and up
What to Expect
Allison handles her violin as if it were an extension of herself. She plays the violin with such grace, tenderness and passion that her audience takes part in a true musical experience.

I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated both you and Allison's efforts in providing amazing music for our son's wedding. Although it was a very formal wedding, it was small and unrehearsed. Allison had worked with our son and his wife on their selections and the timing of the music at an earlier time. The bride and groom chose not to have a rehersal. It took a professional (Allison) to anticipate the needs of the music in the ceremony and respond to it as needed. She played beautifully, chose the perfect songs to fill in and helped make the night a very magical one. She was very pleasant to work with and we would highly recommend her to anyone needing a "special musician" for a "special occassion".
We will be sure and send the pictures of her playing on the top of the hillside as soon as we get them developed.
Thank you again for all of your efforts on our behalf.
Susan and Mike Lamphear
