Lauren is an outstanding musician and an accomplished violinist. At my invitation, she has performed in a number church services including weddings. On each occasion her performance has been inspiring, adding significantly to the dignity and enjoyment of the event. I have never been disappointed in any recital — on the contrary I have always been delighted in the quality of her contribution and the response of the congregation. She is a consummate professional and her wide repertoire should be suitable for a wide range of tastes and circumstances.

Lauren is one of the most trusting musicians and people I have ever worked with! She's a fabulous violinist with impeccable technique and tone. She handles every situation very professionally and with optimism. I hired Lauren for a church service at my church and the music she was asked to play was so beautiful--all our members loved it! Many have asked me to hire her again. I highly recommend working with her.
