The following song lists reflect popular event music selections in violinist/violist Laurel Thomsen's repertoire, and are available with various instrumentation, including solo violin, violin-guitar duo, violin-guitar-doublebass trio, violin-cello duo, a larger string ensemble, or a band featuring the addition of vocals.
If you have particular songs in mind for your event, please contact Laurel as soon as possible to ensure we have arrangements available for the instrumentation you’re interested in booking. The violin-guitar duo and violin-guitar-doublebass trio offer the most diversity and flexibility - most songs on these lists are possible. The bowed string ensembles are best for events focusing on the Classical music list.
If you have a music request that you don’t find here, most songs can be arranged and learned given enough notice, though an additional fee will apply. Such fees cover the time and costs associated with purchasing, learning, arranging and/or transcribing new music, and will be negotiated before any work is done or sheet music purchases made.
We know there are a lot of songs to choose from and the choices can be overwhelming. For weddings, please click here for ceremony music suggestions. When narrowing down your selections, note that for each hour of continuous music, we'll typically play 10-12 songs. Many wedding and event clients choose only a few special songs and leave the rest up to us. If you are enthusiastic about creating the playlist, we'll happily try to fit in all your favorites, but if you'd prefer to choose just a few songs, or the genre(s), or a handful of artists/composers to focus on, we can easily fill the time with a nice selection based around your preferences.
If you have questions or need help, please don't hesitate to reach out - email@example.com or 831-224-0913.
