Francesca was a delight and a wonderful Violinist. I highly recommend her for any venue and/or audience. She has a diverse selection of music she can play with equipment to accompany. This gives her the ability to play music with the sound of a full orchestra. She is a true professional, and it is apparent she loves what she does. I will definitely hire her again should we want live music with a class act!Jul 6, 2019Verified
What a joy it was to work with Francesca! She was very responsive, helpful and the music she played at my daughters wedding really helped to make the day absolutely lovely. The timing was perfectly coordinated with our officiant and coordinator, you’d have thought they’d rehearsed it prior. Francesca made me feel so comfortable before the event, I knew we had truly hired a pro. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the music. She even learned a specially requested song for the bride and groom - remarkable.Jan 20, 2019Verified
Francesca was great to work with. She did an awesome performance at our wedding yesterday. She was very involved with the prep leading to the event and made appropriate suggestions. She was also very accessible & very responsive. On the day of the wedding, she was punctual and worked well with my wedding coordinator, photographer, & officiant. Overall, a real professional that I would not hesitate to hire again, if I ever have the need for a musician:). Thanks Francesca!!!Mar 18, 2019VerifiedFrancesca Jourawleff - Violinist's reply

Thank you so so much for making our wedding day much more beautiful than we could imagine!Nov 5, 2018Verified
From the moment we got in touch with Francesca we knew she was the one. We chose her to play the violin at our wedding ceremony in Naples, FL on April 18th. What immediately stood out to us was how much she cared about making our wedding day special. Francesca allowed us to personally select all of the songs for our prelude, too, not just our processional and exit song! She had a huge variety of over 100 songs in her repertoire and was even willing to learn a new piece for us if needed. This allowed us to completely personalize our ceremony. Meanwhile, in the planning stages, Francesca was readily available to answer any questions via text or call within minutes. She even took the time to call our officiant to finalize the details! When it came to the day of the ceremony, she arrived nearly an hour and a half earlier than the start time to ensure our day ran smoothly. But what we appreciated most about Francesca was knowing we were not only working with a professional but a truly kind person. She genuinely cares about her couples. When the weather report stated it would rain on our wedding day, Francesca assured us she was flexible with us moving the ceremony a day early. Despite the short notice, never once did she charge us more or treat it like it was a hassle even though she had to change her hotel reservation. I thought I could not be more grateful to have hired Francesca until the day of the ceremony when I heard her beautifully play the prelude of songs my husband and I chose with each other. Her natural gift for playing violin brought our guests to tears. Thank you, Francesca, for making our ceremony truly unforgettable.May 13, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?If you want solo violin, that is the most economical for my clients. It depends on the amount of musicians you would like and the amount of hours you need us for. The price goes down per hour , after the first hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I usually text , speak on the phone. and/or email the potential client. If I am hired , I will send him/ her a contract and leave the "lines of communication open" . I want for my clients to know that they will be free to call , text or email me as often as they need with any questions or ideas they might have.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I hold both a BA and an MA in Music with a concentration in the violin. I was previously a free lance violinist in New York , before relocating to Florida.
