About
I have been playing the violin for over 52 years. I Graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University in 1978 with a Bachelor of Music Education Degree and from Illinois State University with a Master of Music Degree in 1994. I have performed as a soloist as well as being a member of several orchestras and ensembles during this time. I am a former member of the Bloomington-Normal Symphony, the Peoria Symphony, and the Knox-Galesburg Symphony all in Illinois. I am currently a first violinist with the Narragansett Bay Symphony Community Orchestra. I've been fortunate to have played with such celebrities as Bob Hope, George Burns, Pearl Baily, Victor Borge, Shirley Jones, Tony Bennett, Roy Clark, Vince Gill, The Moody Blues, Dave Brubeck, Itzhak Perlman, Nadia Salerno Sonnenberg, Dudley Moore, David Ogden Stiers

I am available for weddings, parties, and special events. I am also able to perform with other musicians as well. I have a variety of music that ranges from traditional classical for weddings to jazz, pop and contemporary for your special event. I have the ability to use a recorded accompaniment as background for the solo violin part to enhance any performance. Special musical requests can usually be accommodated with advanced noticed.

I look forward to providing music for your special event.

Edward Bell is talented and very professional. My husband & I were very impressed with how great of a violinist he is. We hired Edward for our fall ceremony at the Dan’l Webster Inn in Sandwich, MA. Edward told us he could learn whatever songs we wanted to request, as long as he had time to learn. We provided five songs, he said he wasn’t familiar with and played them all beautifully come our wedding day. He allowed our ceremony to sound romantic and elegant. My wedding guests were impressed with his talent and requested his business card afterward. It was indeed a magical moment, due to Edward Bell being such a talented violinist.

Edward bell was great! He played at our wedding this past weekend and it was perfect. He knew all the songs I had originally requested and even sent a preview beforehand. I would definitely recommend him.
