Born and raised in Cochabamba, Bolivia, Valeria has more than a decade of experience teaching violin and performing with many orchestras and chamber ensembles in Cochabamba, La Paz, Sucre and Santa Cruz (Bolivia), as well as in Virginia, North Carolina and Vermont (USA). Valeria holds a dual master's degree in Music Performance and Chamber Music from the University of South Florida.
For starters, I want to recommend Valeria on the highest level possible. Out of 5 stars, I would give her 10. I would definitely hire her again, and I will if I do something like this again in the Tampa area. Valeria is an amazing musician and, maybe more importantly, she cares. She cared about our evening on a personal level and that care showed in all of our interactions leading up to the event and during the “performance” as well. If you are looking to create a 1-of-a-kind, romantic experience, Valeria will deliver, and deliver in a big way.
Here is my story: I had planned a romantic get-away in Clearwater Beach for the Labor Day weekend for my girlfriend and myself from our home in NC. I wanted to make it a very special weekend and do a proposal test-run to gauge her reaction. I found Valeria on the website and we began to talk about songs and pricing. Her pricing was reasonable and she made a great recommendation to add a cello player to add to the quality and texture of the sound produced. This was an excellent idea and made the experience amazing. While I’m certain that Valeria could have easily came up with all of the music ideas with no effort on my end, I wanted her to play songs that were special to us, so she took the time to consult with me to produce the perfect playlist and she purchased sheet music for songs that she did not have and we worked together to find one particular, unique song from a South American musician that was especially special to my girlfriend. Bottom line here is that Valeria went out of her way to make sure that we had all the songs that I wanted for the set list and played in the order that I wanted.
Valeria showed up on time to the beach with her cellist friend prior to sunset. There was fear of rain. They unpacked their instruments and played 1 song and it started raining half-way through the 2nd song. They packed back up and we retreated to our Plan B location where she and John (cello) started song #2 over again. Valeria and John played beautifully and it was literally amazing. My girlfriend laughed, cried, hugged me, kissed me, thanked me profusely, and told me this was the most romantic thing anyone had ever done for her. It was obvious that I had made the right decision selecting Valeria. Valeria gave us some extra time at no additional charge and we could not have been more pleased with the incredible experience that she created. Valeria is a magician with her violin and her sound is angelic. If you don’t choose Valeria for your event, you are making a mistake. If you are having a special event or wedding, you only have this one chance to make it right, so don’t screw it up. Hire Valeria, and rest assured that she will deliver the best experience you could ever image.
Valeria arrived early and was set uo abd resdy when we walked in. her music was beautiful and brought applause from the whole reastraunt. i would not hesitate to use Valeria or Gig salad again. thank you so much for a perfect evening
