About
*****Bash Award Winner Every Year On Site. Over 15 Years Professional Experience***** William Yun is an award winning professional violinist who began his violin studies at the age of five. William received a Masters degree in Violin Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where he was awarded a Conservatory Scholarship, and B.A from UC Berkeley graduating with High Honors. William has served as concertmaster and performed as a soloist with numerous symphonies, including in the Sydney Opera House, Segerstrom Hall, and San Francisco's Davies Symphony Hall. He also performs professionally with string ensembles (duos, trios, quartets) and professional orchestras and symphonies.

William is available for all types of private events - weddings, concerts, engagements, special occasions, parties, company/corporate events, memorial services/funerals, and recordings (including arranging string parts).

William is passionate about performing music for others. He always aims to please the audience and leave them happy. William happily works and communicates with you to make sure you are ecstatic with his music service.

William plays popular classical, pop/modern, romantic jazz standards, and movie soundtrack/musicals, virtually all from memory. He also enjoys taking special requests - in fact most of his Youtube video samples are recorded by request. William also enjoys taking requests on the spot from guests!

In addition to solo performance, William can also put together duos (2 violins, violin and guitar, violin and cello), trio or quartet if needed for your event. Please contact for more information on the Jopa String Quartet. Classical to jazz to pop/modern, performing throughout Southern California and beyond.

The Jopa String Quartet is comprised of highly trained musicians who collectively have decades of experience playing weddings, private events, professional concerts. We are good friends and have played professionally together for many years; we are not an agency that puts together unknown or inexperienced musicians or students who have not played together regularly, which can lead to inadequate performance. We strive to bring the highest quality live string music available for our clients.

Regarding Booking: While William does contract with other performing groups and remains featured on other sites in videos and marketing, first priority will always be given to bookings made via the Bash, or directly via William's website or with the Jopa String Quartet. Additionally, all fees go directly to the musician(s), so no extra manager or administrative fees are charged to the client.

Regarding Calendar: William's Calendar on his Bash profile only reflects bookings made on the Bash and not via William Yun or Jopa String Quartet's websites. To guarantee William performs for you, please book directly with the Bash or contact directly. Last minute inquiries are welcome, though early booking and inquiry is recommended.

Regarding Authenticity of Video/Audio Samples: Please note that the Bash apparently does not screen for authenticity of audio samples, as well as manipulation/remastering of audio in videos. To ensure accuracy of sound and presentation, William's profile features mainly video samples. William's video samples are filmed simply using an iphone (no external mic attached) and zero post production editing, remastering or enhancing of sound. This provides peace of mind that what you hear is what you will get (and nothing beats live sound so hopefully better)!

Thank you for reading, and best wishes!

Dear Bill,

What can I say?  You were true to your words....you played your heart out and I know the ceremony was spectacular because of it.  I am still receiving compliments and I can't thank you enough.  The violin was such a perfect addition to the service and Paul & I were absolutely thrilled as were all of our guests.  If you ever need a reference, feel free to ask-it would be my honor.  

Thank you again.

Warmest regards,
Rashel

William Yun is an INCREDIBLY gifted violinist with unbelievable range!! He plays the classics exquisitely (Eg, Mozart, Bach, etc.), and also plays the modern songs divinely (Coldplay, Lady Gaga, etc.) He made my wife’s birthday one of the greatest nights of her life! Moreover, William is a deeply kind, classy and warm-hearted person who was patient with my delays and super accommodating with my unique requests. I cannot recommended William highly enough! I am undoubtedly going to retain him in the future, and you definitely should too!!! ?????? ????

There will never be enough words, ever to describe how thankful I am for William. A wedding is suppose to be one of the best days of your life, sadly mine did not go as planned. The Palmer fire broke out & the ranch had to evacuate. William arrived on time, & was able to set up at the ranch. When the evacuation started, William was able to gather info on the change in venue. He waited, our own officiant took off. William waited. He not only set up at our hotel reception but moved for the third time to the golf course. I love that I have video of him playing so beautifully. The one thing that went perfectly at this wedding was him & his amazing talent. Thank you Bill!
