Solo Violinist, String Duo, Trio, Quartet & More!

Looking for wedding ceremony music with the perfect combination of elegance and fun? Imagining someone serenading a loved one with "your song" on a special evening? Want to book a high energy duo with cello or guitar accompanying electric violin for a memorable event? 

From accompanying beachfront proposals at sunset to improvising music for upscale grand opening ceremonies, to providing ceremony music for San Francisco City Hall weddings to taking requests for popular songs to liven up corporate parties for Fortune 500 companies, I have the experience to deliver the quality you deserve. I am fluent in all styles, including classical, blues, R&B, hip hop, rock, and pop, and if you've heard a song on Spotify or YouTube, chances are, I can play it with the sweetness that only a violinist can provide. 


Whatever your vision, I will help you translate it into reality. I can even help with the vision if you hear distant strains of violins in your dreams, but aren't sure how to incorporate them into event planning. And if solo violin isn't enough strings to satisfy your appetite, I have a roster of skilled colleagues who are happy to join me as a string quartet, trio, or duo to make  sure your event is every bit as magical as you imagined. I regularly travel all over the greater San Francisco Bay Area, and can even travel further if your occasion requires.


Please use the contact form to initiate a conversation about how I can be your "violinist on call". I'm happy to answer any questions you might have.

"Ilana and her son provided the perfect entertainment for our holiday event. The quality of their artistry and professionalism are perfect for any occasion. If you wanna class up your event, I highly recommend them!"..

Perry, 12/22
