Musical elegance and Black excellence!

Edward, thank you so much for making my wedding a truly unique experience. Our family and guests were so impressed! We love the way you play and pull at our heartstrings. Thank you again for being so accommodating with our crazy music selections. I can't wait to (officially) call you Dr. Hardy! God bless you, young man. Stay well.

Edward - proposal

Edward performed during my proposal. From the moment I reached out to Edward until the time came to propose, Edward was punctual, communicative, and accommodating. His catalog of songs that he can play was far deeper than any other violinist I spoke to. Edward is a true professional and incredible performer. We are so lucky and grateful to have been able to share such a special memory with him.
