About

Jill is a classically trained violinist specializing in weddings. She is located in Calgary, Alberta but has performed at hundreds of weddings and events throughout Western Canada, the United States, and Europe. She has 20 years of experience playing the violin as both a solo and chamber musician, performing at her first wedding when she was only 10 years old. She is willing to travel throughout Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan.

Services offered

Jill will provide music for 20 minutes before and after your ceremony to set the tone for your guests' arrival and departure. She will then provide music throughout your ceremony. She is available as a solo violinist or a violin duet.

Jill has an extensive repertoire of classical, traditional, religious, and modern music, but is always eager to take on special song requests. If the sheet music is not available then she is able to handwrite it and has experience doing so for numerous weddings.

If you would like her services to extend past the ceremony, she is available to provide music throughout your cocktail hour. Please send Jill a message to view her pricing and repertoire, read testimonials, and hear samples.

Other services

On top of wedding ceremonies, Jill is available to perform at other events such as galas, anniversaries, birthdays, corporate functions, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers or any bruncheons and functions you may have during your wedding week. Please send her a message to discuss your upcoming event.

    Beautiful music, great experience!

    Hiring Jill was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! She played our ceremony and cocktail hour, and the music was beautiful throughout! We had so many compliments from guests. Her repertoire is extensive, and her communication was excellent. I also found her prices were more than reasonable for the quality of services we received. 10/10, would definitely recommend!

    Hi Madison,
    Thank you very much for your kind words. I had such a great time performing at your wedding - the view was just stunning in the tent. Wishing you and Roberto all the best!

    Ceremony and cocktail solo services

    We highly recommend Jill! She was so easy to work with, affordable and has such an extensive repertoire.
    Hiring Jill as our silo violinist took so much pressure off our plate -we didn’t have to worry about the timing of our music and seamlessness of the ceremony.
    She was the cherry on top of our wedding ceremony!

    JL Strings's reply:

    Thank you for your lovely review, Elizabeth. Wishing you and Drue a lifetime of happiness together, it was such a joy to be a part of your beautiful ceremony!!

    Beautiful music. Easy to work with.

    Jill and her violinist duet played for my outdoor ceremony at Baker park. Jill had a great selection of songs both classical and modern, and she was open to learn new songs. She responded to my emails quickly and sent me a sample of my entrance song when I requested.

    It started raining half an hour before the ceremony commenced, but as soon as Jill and her partner started playing, the rain magically stopped!

    The timing of my entrance song was perfect. Jill knew how to pace the song and loop it in a way that sounded so natural. I'm very impressed with her professional skills!

    JL Strings's reply:

    Thank you for your lovely review, Jessie. It was such a joy to be a part of your ceremony. Wishing you and Kevin a lifetime of happiness with one another!
    Thanks, and best wishes for the future.

    Phenomenal music made our ceremony magical


    Jill was absolutely excellent! She had to improvise a little on the fly when we moved through our ceremony too quickly and it sounded absolutely amazing!! We hired her and a cellist for our ceremony and it wouldn’t have been the same without the gorgeous music. Thanks Jill!

    JL Strings's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words, Rachel + Larry! What a gorgeous autumn ceremony - I am so happy I was able to be apart of it.
    Cheers!
