    Perfect Ceremony!

    From the very beginning when my partner and I first contacted Gloria, she was always very friendly, professional, and responsive. We really appreciate how she accommodated every song request of ours. Gloria never missed a beat in performing our song choices for each part of the ceremony, and she performed each song so beautifully. My wife and I couldn't be happier with how the music turned out - it was so perfect to have an amazing violinist in Gloria perform at our wedding. Thank you, Gloria!

    Amazing violinist

    We hired Gloria for our wedding pretty last minute and are so happy we went with her. We contacted several violinists but many were rigid and could not accommodate our requests on such short notice. We had one cultural song for her to play which she learned with only 2 weeks to go, and played beautifully for our grand entrance. She also played a song for the bridal party entrance and for our ring exchange which a lot of people loved, as well as played our first dance song and a few more when the dance floor opened. Overall, very talented player, responsive, and organized. She helped me compile the list in sequence and it was appreciated as i had a ton on the go to finalize. The guests loved her and me and my husband both think she added a magic touch to our big day. If i ever need a violinist for any other occasion, i will 100% book Gloria again!

    Entirely wonderful

    We were referred to Gloria by a friend and we could not have been happier.
    She was enormously helpful in guiding our music selection, our correspondences leading up to the big day were concise and professional, and through the set-up to the ceremony to the reception Gloria and her colleague performed masterfully with minimal guidance or instruction. On a potentially stressful day, Gloria allowed us to entirely forget about our music because it was beautifully executed.

    Amazing performers and personalized service

    We had Gloria and her partner (violin/cello duo) play at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour - they were absolutely amazing!! It was the best add-on to our wedding day. We have received so many compliments how well Gloria’s music flowed with the ceremony. Working with Gloria leading up to the wedding day was also easy; she was very responsive and provided a lot of great recommendations/suggestions based on the vision we had in mind. We highly recommend working with Gloria for your wedding day music.

    Thank you again Gloria!

    Wonderful Wedding Violinist

    Gloria was a delight to work with from start to finish. She was great at communicating with us prior to the wedding and making sure we got the songs that were important to us at the wedding service and cocktail hour. She played beautifully throughout the time she was at the wedding. We’ve had many complements about her playing and would highly recommend her to our friends and family. Thank you so much Gloria!

    Absolutely amazing!

    Gloria is extremely precise and easy to work with. She was able to offer sound advice with confidence and doesn't try to oversell. She performed numerous modern and classical numbers during our ceremony that lit up the room and brought on the goosebumps! Fantastic performer, punctual, affordable, and reliable. Definitely worth it!

    Thank you Gloria!

    Great performer! Highly recommend

    From the very beginning I contacted Gloria she was very responsive and very accommodating. She made sure that everything that we wanted and envisioned for our wedding in regards to the music aspect was met to our expectations. She took personal suggestions and had no limit of what she could play. On the day of the wedding, she was early to set up and even accommodated our delay of the ceremony. She played amazingly and my husband and I are so happy we decided to go with Gloria! We recommend her 10xxxx times over! Thank you so much Gloria for truly making our wedding ceremony !
