Here to give you the timeless and soothing music of my solo violin to your wedding ceremony, special dinner, party, or other event. Book your date today!
Sonja is a very sensitive and acute musician. Playing with her is comfortable as she knows where her sound fits best and her timing is great. With this and a high degree of integrity toward her craft, you can trust her in making you event one of grace, beauty and simplicity. Timely, wholesome and a very genuine person.
I have had the pleasure of working with Sonja over the past several years and have found her to be a very professional and accomplished violinist and fiddler. I have performed with Sonja in a few different settings and have watched her perform with several different musicians. She is able to adapt her playing to fit the musical style and definitely compliments the performance. All in all, Sonja has a wonderful stage presence and is a musician I enjoy playing music with and watching perform.
Sonja always adds a special touch to any occasion. I have played with her many times over the last few years. Many of my friends use her talents whenever she is available. She is a consummate professional.
We were so happy having Sonja as our violinist in our wedding. She did such an amazing job! It was just like I pictured a violinist would be at my wedding. She definitely put the elegance. My mom fell in love with her music, our guest loved all the songs. She played in our ceremony and the cocktail hour and it was so beautiful! She was so happy to coordinate the Ave Maria with my brother for our ceremony, my brother with the vocals and the Sonja with the violin, just beautiful... We were so happy. 5 star rating from us for sure!

What to Expect
I always scope out the location days or weeks ahead of time if it is not already familiar to me. Also, on the day of the event, I arrive at least an hour early to set up and test out the acoustics and my equipment. At times, I have found myself with extra time and was able to jump in and lend a hand here and there with last minute preparations. I play a wide range of genres including classical, Celtic, latin, traditional old-time, jazz and blues, pop, country and some bluegrass.
I have been making music on my violin all of my life in all kinds of settings, from symphony orchestras to jazz bands. I love to play with other musicians, but I also enjoy the sound of my instrument on its own. I love to be a part of of the magic that beautiful music can add to a gathering of people, whether I am playing at an art show, a friend's birthday party, a beautiful concert hall, or on a street corner.
Providing the timeless music of my solo violin to your wedding, special dinner, party, or dance is my specialty. I will learn your special song for your event as well. I have my own amplification. I also have a mic and mic stand if it is needed.
Additional Booking Notes
If it is hot and the event is outdoors, I would like to have some shade.
