About
I am a professional violinist, performing in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. Whether as a soloist or with my trio/duo ensemble including violin(s), piano, guitar, or cello I aim to find the perfect music for your dream wedding! With over 30 years experience, performing weddings, parties, corporate events, funerals and cocktail hours in various styles and venues have allowed me to build an extensive playlist spanning centuries. No, I'm not THAT old! Great classics, Jazz standards, religious music, ethnic and folk tunes, rock, pop, love songs, Gospel and worship music, musicals, Irish gigs and reels, Jewish music, show-tunes, R and B,and contemporary tunes....up to this weeks top 10, fill my playlists!

I have performed in major venues including the Kimmel Center, Academy of Music, The Dupont Theater, The Mann Music Center, The Robin Hood Dell, and over one hundred wedding venues, churches, restaurants, private homes, and parks in the tri-state area.

If you hire me, I will work with you to make your event music awesome! I will provide quality personal attention and guide you in choosing the perfect music to create the atmosphere that will bring joy and elegance to your wedding, cocktail hour or other celebration.

While I can be hired with or without a keyboardist/pianist, I also perform with a classical guitarist and/or string ensemble named Glorious Strings. It is comprised of violinists and cellists for duos, trios or quartets. My ensembles are perfect for any size audience and we can perform with or without amplification.

Here are some comments and compliments from recent customers.

If we could rate 6 stars we would!! Dottie was the epitome of professionalism, talent and friendliness. We could not have made a better choice for my daughter's wedding ceremony. If you contract Glorious Strings for your venue you will not be disappointed. -Linda M, Philadelphia, PA (gig ID# 2533566)

Dottie was easy to work with and continually responded quickly to my questions and requests. She was detail oriented and thorough, and able to provide a huge selection of various types of music. Many of our guests complimented her beautiful performance at wedding and cocktail hour. Her music was definitely a highlight of our wedding! Highly recommend if you want fantastic music!! I will be recommending her to all of my friends. :) -Shaneese R, Lumberton, NJ (gig ID# 2435572)

Dottie was amazing from beginning to end. She was on time and very professional and was playing music during our reveal before her start time :) Thank you Dottie!! Everyone loved your music and how well it was played. -Stephanie T, Vincentown, NJ (gig ID# 2433457)

I highly recommend Glorious Strings (Solo Violin Trio Classical Pop) to everyone. Dottie Free was there to answer my every question, before and during my daughter's wedding ceremony. I have to say, at first, I was a little skeptical about the Gigmaster's website but there is absolutely nothing to worry about when booking your event with Dottie. You all sounded beautiful and it was a pleasure working with you. Thanks again, Dottie. -Maria M, Lambertville, NJ (gig ID# 2706094)

I had a beauty and the beast theme wedding and Dottie looked up their music to play the songs I requested. She kept in contact with me and made sure it was what I wanted. Since it was new music it was something i had to just trust would sound right (and I was slightly nervous i wouldn't like it) but it was BEAUTIFUL!! So happy with dottie and her team. I recommend -Shamara M, Bensalem, PA (gig ID# 2385527)

I am very pleased with the service Glorious Strings provided! They were a pleasure to work with and made the tedious task of ceremony and cocktail hour music selection very easy. They were spot on with everything! -Suzanne R (gig ID#1789557)

“Thank you for making my wedding day such a special event! I loved your music and the personal attention you gave to the details. I especially loved the Beatles pieces!” Jane B. /May 2017 Corporate Event Philadelphia

Thank you, Dottie Free! Your music was heavenly and I really appreciated your willingness to come on such short notice. You went above and beyond all expectations. -Tina C, Springfield, PA (gig ID# 2558934) Funeral.

“Dottie, thank you so much for playing at my art exhibit. The music added so much to our opening night and brought elegance complimentary to the evening. We will be asking you to play again next fall.” Ginger A. /June 2017

“Thank you, Dottie, for the excellent music and performance you provided at my wedding! So many of our guests complimented you to us and thoroughly enjoyed your playing! Roberta and David S. Aug./2017

I am very pleased with the service Glorious Strings provided! They were a pleasure to work with and made the tedious task of ceremony and cocktail hour music selection very easy. The only reason I did not rate 5 stars for special requests is because I did ask for them to play in the front of the ceremony, however they played in the back which really was not a big deal and probably was not their fault b/c I'm not sure if my wedding planner relayed the message. Also I gave 4 stars instead of 5 for talent only b/c the song my bridal party processed to did not exactly sound the same to me, but other than that they were spot on with everything else!
