I am a classically trained violinist with extensive performance experience. I pride myself in offering high quality music for any event. As a recent McGill graduate with a master's degree in violin performance, I am fortunate to work regularly with an extensive network of highly trained and talented musicians and can arrange for almost any type of ensemble. Some examples of popular ensembles include:
String duo (violin, cello)
String trio (violin, viola, cello)
String quartet (two violins, viola, cello)
Violin, flute, cello

I recently contracted Mie to play for a special occasion. Her performance was beautiful! I requested a special song and Mie was very accommodating. She suggested adding a cellist which worked out even better. Given the challenges I presented with the song, timing and location, Mie made everything work perfectly. I would highly recommend hiring Mie for you next event!
Response from Violinist Mie Hirschfield:
Thanks Mike, it was a pleasure to work with you!

What to Expect
I am ready to take care of the music for your event, as a soloist or part of an ensemble, and to help you find the perfect musical selections. I take pride in quality music and well organized communication, and I will work with you to make any occasion more special. Although my background is classical music, I have experience with pop and jazz ensembles as well.
I am happy to play at outdoor events. However, string instruments are sensitive, and can't be exposed to extreme conditions or sudden changes in weather. Please note that for outdoor events, we require a shelter, even in good weather as direct sunlight can be damaging. We reserve the right not to perform in case of: rain or other precipitation, extreme wind or humidity, temperatures below 65 degrees fahrenheit or 18 degrees celsius. In the case that a performance does not happen, you will be refunded all but the deposit (which is only what we need to cover the costs of any work before the event)
