Christine is an outstanding violinist! She exudes confidence and set the tone through beautiful music for my son's wedding. I enjoyed working with Christine and would highly recommend her as well as Debbie Curry, the pianist who accompanied Christine. They make an incredible team.

Christine made our wedding ceremony a memorable one. Guests were raving about her musical abilities on the violin and the flute player accompanying her as well. They both came in beautiful matching formal attire and were nothing less than two high class professionals. Our ceremony would not have been complete without their music and we highly recommend her to anyone.

Christine performed on our wedding ceremony on April 11, 2014. She is a very talented musician and a nice person, responsible and punctual. From the first telephone call to the event itself everything went smoothly. Christine helped us to select music for our ceremony. We got many compliments from our guests about the music selections and Christine's performance. Thank you Christine for being a part of our big day!!!

Christine was absolutely wonderful. She's very professional. We contacted her about two weeks from the wedding because our original arrangement didn't work out. She responded to us so quickly. She was able to provide us so many selection of music. We got all the songs we love. She was able to help us to find other vendors as well. The beautiful music she performed us was exactly what we wanted. All the guests love the music. We were super happy with her fantastic service.

When we stepped inside St. Mary's Chapel, Christine was playing her violin for a future bride and groom. The music filled the Chapel, our hearts danced, and we had to have it! She was very professional and could offer so many music choices right off the top of her head. In just one short meeting we were able to make the perfect music choices for our daughter's wedding. I strongly encourage you to reach out to Violin by Christine. She has a truly God-given talent. The music at your wedding will touch the hearts of your guests as it did ours. Best of luck!

Christine was absolutely amazing! She was very thorough during our first phone conversation and immediately put me at ease. Since we were having a bit of a destination wedding (wedding in NC, reside in VA), she was extremely flexible and even arranged for a Skype "meeting" to determine what music we wanted for our ceremony. I would recommend her to anyone!

We didn't get to hear all of Christine's music on our wedding day because we were getting ready before the ceremony, but we watched the video of the ceremony several weeks later and she did an amazing job. We let her decide most of the songs during the seating of guests and the songs were beautiful. She was very helpful when we met before the wedding to select the processional, ceremony and recessional music. Christine's music added a wonderful dimension to our perfect day.

I hired Christine for my wedding this year and loved her. She was wonderful to work with! The music was beautiful and so memorable, so happy I decided to go with her instead of using the DJ for the ceremony. I would definitely recommend using her!

Christine's playing offers more than music at an event, but a blissful and elegant atmosphere. My guests were impressed! Her talent adds depth to such a special day through her obvious passion to play music. She is most certainly a professional and a very kind lady. If you want a top of line wedding....just add Christine! I love classical music and my husband loves Phantom of the Opera. Somehow, she managed to incorporate our personalities into our special day. She played a timeless song when I came down the aisle. It honestly said here is your princess without actually saying it out loud!!! ...Every eye was wet when she played my song! I trusted her with the most important day of my life and she successfully went over and beyond! Weddings with live music are so much easier to be a part of because everyone can enjoy, relax, and leave the details of the timing to Christine!! Also, let me quickly add, my husband loved the music as well. He was so happy with her playing! Thank you for making our day reflective of passion and sincerity.

Our organization has worked with her for several years and Christine has provided us with high quality music that not only delights our clients, but also adds so much to the overall professionalism and atmosphere of our events. I would highly recommend Christine to perform at any event here music is needed and quality is essential.

My husband and I met with Christine and she played a few different sample selections for us to choose from. She was AMAZING! We wanted a violinist and flutist and she and her daughter played for our wedding. She had tons of music to choose from and helped us decide what songs to play during the ceremony. I would highly recommend her for brides that want a classical, elegant musician for their wedding day! She was great to work with.

Christine was great! She spent over an hour with us going through music selections, the ceremony plans (to allign each selection with the walking of the wedding party), etc. My daughter wanted to walk down the isle to the music from The Legends of the Fall. We found the music on the Internet and Christine started playing along (she can also play by ear). She ordered the sheet music (for the pianist) and it sounded beautiful. Christine is easy to work with and extremely professional. Her violin music give me chill bumps!! We highly recommend Christine.

Christine is very professional and very easy to work with. She has been playing the violin for events for many years, and I'd heard great things about her before I actually got a chance to listen. She doesn't have an extremely large selection of songs she can play (3-5 choices for each section of the wedding), and many sound best as a duet (she does duets with flute, guitar, or piano--we also hired her recommended flutist, who was also wonderful), but what she does play is done with excellence, precision, and feeling. My wedding coordinator commented on her professionalism, and my officiant, commented on how sensitive she was to what was going on during the wedding as far as timing, and the emotion of the pieces she played, compared to many musicians he's seen who just look at their music and play mechanically the whole time.
One of the best things was that I decided to change and rearrange some of the pieces I selected about 2 weeks before the wedding, and she was totally okay with it, and in fact, helped me a great deal in my final decision with recommendations.

Also, Christine has a large number of gowns to wear so that she'llcoordinate with your event colors (or she has the typical black or black and white).
