Start planning your event with this list of suggestions. This is only a sampling of what's available and the sky is the limit as far as what I can perform for you. My repertoire encompasses hundreds, even thousands of songs, so please just inquire if your dream song isn't on this list. Even if a song just topped last week's charts, chances are that I can adapt it for the violin. Or, simply craft your occasion by choosing from these popular classical and contemporary favorites.
