The following song lists reflect popular event music selections in violinist/violist Laurel Thomsen's repertoire. 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. Many of the songs on the pops list were songs that were in fact requested by a client at some point. 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.
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 can typically play 10-12 songs. If you're enthusiastic about creating the playlist, we'll happily try to fit in all your favorites! However, many wedding and event clients prefer to choose only a few special songs and leave the rest up to us. In this case, the genre(s) or a handful of artists/composers to focus on will help us orient to your style and 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 - firstname.lastname@example.org (best) or 831-224-0913 (call or text).
