Helen is a beautiful violinist that was very professional and did a fantastic job at our surprise proposal event. I would definitely recommend for future events.
Helen was hired to play as my son proposed to his (now) fiance and for the dinner that followed. He had a couple of special requests for songs not typically played by violin, but Helen added them to her repertoire without hesitation. She arrived early, played beautifully and was the perfect addition to the perfect proposal.
Helen played at my proposal and she was prompt, professional, and highly skilled. I had to push back the proposal 30mins and she was understanding. If you’re looking for a violinist to beautify your event, Helen is the one.
She did an amazing job!.... She was on-time and very professional! My guest loved her
Helen was invited to play at my small wedding dinner in the heat and mosquitoes. She was very professional and on time. But most importantly, she played beautifully without stopping for the entire time. The price was also excellent. If I have another event I will sure hire her again. Thank you Helen!

What to Expect
I arrive 30 min before my performance time for any last minute changes and prep. I like to perform in formal black or formal black and white. I always provide a music stand and my binder with music.
I have a set of classical music, and a few church songs and pop tunes to balance it out. If you would like a certain style or song, I am open to making a set just for your event.
I believe you can have violin for all occasions! I've classically trained for 18 years and I love playing music with others and for others. I perform full time in the violin section of Midland-Odessa Symphony Orchestra and teach in the Dallas area. I can bring a classical or pop or mix set. I enjoy adding any song requests and style preferences with every experience. Whether playing the ceremony or background music, my hope is to proved an elegant twist for your event.
Additional Booking Notes
My violin is just acoustic -I do no provide pickups or electronic equipment. If my instrument needs a mic for your event space, I can play with whatever equipment you already have at the venue. The violin is medium quiet volume and I am happy to play out or play per your request!
