For beautiful, excellent, and memorable wedding music, look no further! I have over 18 years of experience performing professionally in weddings and promise to make your ceremony music everything you've dreamt of and more!

I perform 20-30 weddings per year and I have a very large repertoire. I can perform almost any style of music: classical, jazz, world, pop, and fiddling. I am willing to do special music arrangements free of charge. Most other wedding musicians that I know charge quite a bit for special music arrangements (or don't even offer it at all) and make you stick to a certain list of music. With me you are not bound to selecting music from a certain list. I am happy to perform whatever music you envision for your wedding, whether it is standard classical music or "out of the box" requests!

For sound clips, please visit my soundcloud.com site at: https://soundcloud.com/emilyannthompson

Emily provided a jazz violin/guitar duo (think Django Reinhart) for my June wedding. She is very personable, professional and easy to work with. I had a requested a specific style and she went over and beyond in making sure the "sound" she provided matched with my vision of the event. She even took several requests from guests as well... the music really made the evening = much more interesting than general back ground music and not so in your face as a band with a singer might be. she's flexible and versatile in her musical styles and approach, so if you don't think you can find what you're looking for, be sure to talk to Emily! the sound system was also great as well...

Having Emily Ann Thompson and her group play for our daughters wedding reception was truly a joy. We had them playing as our guests found their seats for dinner and they continued to play beautiful soothing music as we ate. After dinner they played more upbeat music for some group/country dances which were taught to our guests. We had several comments from guests about how much they enjoyed the music!

Emily Ann Thompson was amazing. I wholeheartedly recommend that anyone wanting a violist for their wedding should use her. She plays beautifully and will play whatever songs you want. She is a pleaser and really tries so hard to make the evening perfect. Several people who attended the wedding commented about how nicely she played.

A good example of how Emily goes above and beyond is that a wedding guest asked Emily if she knew a particular song, and Emily downloaded it from the internet and played it later that evening.

Emily was a pleasure to work with. Prior to the wedding she made herself available to meet with and discuss our music selections. She gave us great suggestions for songs that were "outside the box" for our ceremony which is exactly what we wanted. She was even happy to play Bruno Mars and Bob Marley on her violin at our request! On the wedding day Emily arrived early and her music before, during and after the ceremony really set a happy tone which carried on throughout the day! I would definitely recommend her services!

If budget is a consideration, skip the shrimp cocktail and go for the music!! We hired Emily along with an associate cello player for our daughters wedding. Our selections were a little different, our venue as well, but Emily was completely flexible, and the music set the tone perfectly for the event. We were extremely happy with her services and would recommend her without hesitation.

Emily played solo violin for our wedding ceremony on September 12. She did a wonderful job and everyone loved the music. We met with her once before the wedding and she was great to work with. Her music sounded great outside and it was a pleasure to work with her. Her price is excellent for the service you get. I don't think you can find a better violinist for your wedding! Thanks so much Emily you were a great addition to our ceremony.
