Jennifer often plays solo violin at weddings and events. This is usually recommended for quieter settings, where a solitary melody can be fully appreciated: as a bride walks down the aisle; during an interlude at a funeral; at a particular moment in a party and even a marriage proposal! Jennifer plays a mixture of classical, popular modern, folk tunes and jazz standards, and caters the programme to each event’s needs. Special requests can be made, alternatively take a look at the repertoire sample below.
A selection of her solo repertoire includes:
- Canon in D – Pachelbel
- O for the Wings of a Dove – Mendelssohn
- All of me – John Legend

From experience, solo violin only needs amplification if performed in a smaller space with a lot of guests e.g. at a function when people talk loudly to be heard over each other. Should you have concerns about solo violin being heard, Jennifer has a Band pick up that wraps around her violin and plugs straight into a Fishman Loudbox Mini acoustic amplifier – creating a beautiful warm sound with a bit of a lift for those more lively situations!
Should you wish to have accompaniment, Jennifer can provide backing tracks through her amplifier for specific pieces, or for a longer performance, accompaniment can be provided by the piano, harp or guitar at an increased fee.
