Introduction: I greatly enjoy playing for people and creating a special atmosphere for the guests to match the occasion. I think music plays an enormous role in any type of event, but this is especially true for weddings. My repertoire consists of many beautiful selections of classical piano music, movie themes and Broadway tunes. I learn music of any style very quickly and can accommodate any special requests. I offer a complimentary 30 minute session to discuss and help select the music for an event. My goal is to make sure that my clients are completely satisfied with the musical selections. I have a lot of experience playing for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, dinner parties and other social events and my playing will be balanced according to the size of the room and will never be obtrusive. At all the events I have played people always enjoyed the selections and commented on the high quality of my playing. I hold Master's Degree in Piano Performance and regularly perform solo and collaborative recitals. I teach private lessons and work as an accompanist at Northwestern University. In addition I serve as a church organist at the St. Paul's Evangelical Church in Franklin Park, IL. Music is my life and passion and I am looking forward to helping make your next event a memorable experience.

Olga was perfect. She was flexible in scheduling, confirmed and communicated responsively via text. She showed-up precisely on-time and was professional throughout. Her expertly-played Christmas music was the hit of the family holiday party!

Olga was fantastic. From the start, Olga was responsive and so accommodating for a 99th birthday dinner party. The music she played was so lovely and absolutely set the tone for the entire night. Her piano playing was the most perfect backdrop for the dinner party. We will be booking Olga again for future dinner parties. Also worth noting, her rendition of “Happy birthday” was SO good!

Thank you Emma for your kind words! It felt very special to be a part of your grandma’s 99’s birthday celebration. I truly enjoyed playing for all of you last night and hope I get a chance to play for your grandma’s 100’s birthday party next year! I will make sure to prepare all her favorite music!

Olga really made our Christmas party very special. She was very responsive and helped me create the playlist of Christmas songs. We enjoyed her music while the kids decorated cookies. Then they danced like ballerinas to the nutcracker melodies. This was a rental property, so I would expect this will become an annual tradition. Hopefully Olga will be available in the future as well. We enjoyed every moment.
