About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

I have free-lanced in the Baltimore-Washington area for fifty (50!) years. I play just about all styles, including light classical, traditional/international folk (including Klezmer,) bluegrass, Irish, swing and jazz. I lead jazz and swing instrumental duos and trios. For wedding ceremonies, I play violin or mandolin with optional guitar, cello or piano accompaniment. At the present time I am NOT leading string ensembles larger than a trio (e.g., string quartets.) When I am not leading small groups or soloing, I can frequently be found playing as a sideman in bluegrass groups and even a Gypsy jazz group. The audio clips included on this member profile page are of my light classical solo playing in addition to selected tracks (as indicated by an *) from my self-produced CD originally released in 1994: "A Dream of Peace." I recently added a track I composed for the Fabrangen Fiddlers' album "American Chai," originally released in 1978, and now finally available on CD. It is "Avrum's Nigun" (Abram's tune) and is a good sample of the ethnic dance material I still perform.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on May 30, 2021From Baltimore, MD

Alan was a phenomenal performer. He showed up early to go over the space, was accommodating and polite to all of our guests, and provided phenomenal musical accompaniment throughout the ceremony!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 10, 2020From Phoenix, MD

Mr Alan Oresky was absolutely wonderful in every respect performing his music at my daughter's wedding. He arrived early, set up, warmed up, was ready to perform on time, played a variety of beautiful music. He was quick to respond to all emails and texts. I would recommend him highly. Thank you Alan!!!!

Review by Damien C.

Nursing Home EventReviewed on November 21, 2019From Arlington, VA

A five star rating isn't even an adequate number of stars to describe my experience with Alan. Prior to hearing him, I was leaning towards another violinist, but boy am I glad that I decided to give him a listen. Not only is he a PHENOMINAL musician with a vast musical repertoire, but he also has a BEAUTIFUL spirit! (feels genuine, not forced for the purpose of winning you over) He performed for our pre-Thanksgiving celebratory dinner at the nursing facility I work for, and to say that the residents and staff ABSOLUTLY LOVED him would be an UNDERSTATMENT! I totally recommend Alan to anyone looking for an accomplished violinist. He is truly a gem!

Alan Oresky:

Thanks, Damien! It was a pleasure working with you and your very friendly and accommodating staff as well! All the Best for the New Year!
