Samantha did a fine job and several guests commented that they thought that the music was a recording as opposed to being live (it was definitely live). Would recommend her without hesitation.

I invited Samantha to my place to surprise my husband for his birthday, so I set it up to have her playing happy bday song when my hb opened the door! The event was followed by a short violin playing in our place, so it was really just a mini concert. But Samantha was handling everything professionally, she was punctual, understanding everything what we needed. I strongly reccomend her. Actually, she was more than what we needed, if I have friends who would need a sophisticated ensemble for wedding or so, I would like to reccomend her.
