    Perfect addition

    Lauren on violin and Jonathan on cello were the perfect compliment to a 50th anniversary party filled with various types of entertainment. Played many songs we requested and even added a few to their normal repertoire. They even played one twice (after asked) so the couple could have a personal concert. They were amazing! Highly recommend for weddings or any event.

    Thank you, CJ, for trusting us to provide music for your event. You were super easy to work with, too, and the 50th anniversary was so much fun.

    A great choice!

    Lauren was a great musician choice for our ceremony. She has a great selection of songs, and is willing to learn new if asked. She was prompt with her email responses and was great to work with for the selection process. Her music was beautiful at the ceremony and really added to our wedding. I鈥檇 highly recommend Lauren to anyone looking for an excellent violinist for their event!

    Lauren Canitia, Violinist's reply:

    Thank you, Rachel, for your kind words. It was such an honor to be trusted to provide music for your ceremony. I wish you and your husband the best in your life together.

    Perfect for ceremony music!!!

    We are so thrilled we hired Lauren to play violin for our ceremony at Anderson Japanese Gardens on 6/18/22. She sounded absolutely amazing and really set the vibe for our wedding. Her catalog of songs is so large it was easy to find songs that created the vibe we were going for. I also asked if it was possible for her to do 2 songs that were not in her catalog (by more niche artists) and she was more than happy to learn them for us. Lauren helped make our wedding day an absolute dream! Highly recommend!
