My first professional concertmaster experience occurred on February 9th, 2020 at the Listening Room in Grand Rapids with the Vintage Parlor Orchestra! Enjoy some photos.
In November of 2019, I was a featured soloist with the Vintage Parlor Orchestra at Creston Brewery. I performed Vivaldi's Autumn with the orchestra. Enjoy these pictures from this memorable event.
This summer only, $50 off a solo violin live event. Doesn't have to be a wedding. For booking/inquiries, contact larissa.
I played a wedding last weekend all by myself. It was quite fun! Typically the wedding gigs I play are in ensembles: quartets, trios, duets. So I was excited to do something all by myself. It definitely gives me a bit more freedom to perform pieces I want and have some more creative decisions with the order of ceremony. The bride gave me some general guidelines but apart from that I could play pieces I wanted.
The venue for this wedding was the River Edge Bed and Breakfast in Lowell, MI. What a beautiful outdoor setting! I performed prelude music, Canon in D for the bride, and some recessional/postlude music.
Blessings to the bride and groom!
Today, I am off to perform at another wedding. This one is a violin/cello duet. So be on the look-out for a new blog soon.
P.S. Below are some samples of different ensembles and what they may sound like if you are interested for an event.
Here a some pics from a recent wedding I played with cellist Matthew Heyboer. Violin/Cello.
I performed recently with Jordan VanHemert, saxophonist in his recital at Grace Episcopal church. Really cool times, classical/jazz violin in a small ensemble with sax solos. I love branching out a bit from just classical repertoire. Picture of program is below.
Also, here is a YouTube video of Jordan and a project I was involved in a few months back. Not the same music we played in the 'Grace Notes' recital, but of similar nature.
This Thursday, June 21st I will be performing with the Holland Symphony in the Pops at the Pier Concert with the Moxie Strings as guest artist. Come check it out!! It's a really fun venue. The concert is in a boat shed. More info at link here.
On Friday, April 20th, 2018 The Grand Rapids Symphony performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City. I was able to go along. What a fun and memorable experience! Carnegie Hall is one of the most historic venues in the world for Classical Music.
Put all of your superstitions aside, Friday the 13th was a great day for me this month! I was able to go with a great friend and fellow violinist to hear renowned performer Ray Chen and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
The DSO, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, first performed in 1887. In April 2011 the DSO launched 'Live from Orchestra Hall', it is the first free webcast series to be put out by an orchestra & "In 1934, the DSO became the nation's first official radio broadcast orchestra, performing for millions of Americans over the airwaves on the Ford Symphony Hour national radio show until 1942." -DSO website
Ray Chen was born in Taiwan and raised in Australia. He plays the 1715 “Joachim” Stradivarius violin on loan from the Nippon Music Foundation.
Apart from this great concert, we were also able to explore Belle Isle and the Detroit Institute of Arts.
The DIA's collection is among the top six of museums in the United States, with about 66,000 works.
