Thank you Vicki for the beautiful music
We asked Vicki to play for our father's memorial service. We had one piece of music in mind, but she was very willing to play all of the other hymns as well as search for the music. She went out of her way to get all details and was very flexible in playing along with the established church organist. If we had been more familiar with the church and procedures, we may have insisted that it be only Vicki playing, as we really enjoyed her accompaniment.
Response from Violin by Vicki:
Thank you Lauren! I'm so glad I met your expectations...that's what I always strive to do. I enjoyed hearing about your father from your brother's eulogy. Sounds like you all had a very principled upbringing.
All the Best, Vicki

Vicki is a classically-trained violinist, having studied under Edgar Muenzer and Eric Wicks, former members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

She was an orchestra and band instructor for 22 years in the public schools.
Additional Booking Notes
If an event is outside, an active electrical outlet needs to be available in order to plug in the amp. String players need to be sheltered from the sun, due to the harmful effects it may cause to the varnish on our instruments...so, under a tree, an upright umbrella, or small canopy. Weather is an important factor...must be 40 degrees or higher, and not raining in order to play outside.
