Violetta is awesome! A very skilled player, everyone complimented our ceremony in large part because of her playing. She provided an extensive list of music to choose from and also welcomed my requests. Very friendly and professional and responded to emails in a timely fashion. Contact her for your event, you will not regret it.Sent on 09/12/2018
