Events & Weddings

To help support my ballet career, I am so grateful to be able to share my other passion which is playing the violin. I’ve been busking in my hometown since I was 13 years old and have loved every bit of it. Even in the heat and cold, and standing on my feet for hours on end, often after even more hours of ballet rehearsals, I’ve felt blessed to be able to share my passion for music in my community.

Along the way, I’ve met so many wonderful people and have become part of the vibe in my little hometown. I’ve also had lots of requests to play at events, from private parties and business meetings to weddings. To simplify things, I’ve created this page to share some basic pricing and options for me to play at your events. Let me know if you want me to play for you!

General Pricing $150 / hour

For cocktail / dinner parties, I generally play 1 to 2 hours for added ambiance to an event. I will show up for your event a good 15-20 minutes prior for setup (not charged). I bring my violin, stand and speaker. I dress professionally in a black dress. I play an assortment of contemporary pop hits along with classical and fiddle favorites to add some variety to the mix.


I generally play weddings within a 10 miles radius of the Mount Dora, FL area. If your wedding is outside the area, travel would be extra.

I arrive at the wedding 15-20 minutes before the guest start arriving. I dress professional in black. I begin playing 15 minutes before the scheduled wedding begins.*
