BIOGRAPHY

Jessica is a passionate violinist who thoroughly enjoys performing. Since starting her soloist career in early 2015, she was named Thumbtack's #1 Solo Musician in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2015 and 2016
 
"Music is profoundly powerful," Jessica says. "It has the ability to touch the soul in unbelievable ways. I have yet to come across a person who regrets having music present at memorable moments in their lives."   ​
 
Jessica has played the violin for 18 years. In 2006, she pursued her passion for music at Snow College, where she majored in Music Education under the direction of reknowned professors and instructors such as Dr. Brent Smith (Director of Orchestras, Snow College), Victoria Ferris (Utah Symphony), David Porter (Utah Symphony), and Jack Ashton (creator of YACP). Dr. Smith was quoted as saying, 
    "Jessica is an exceptionally bright young woman,                  naturally talented leader, and an excellent violinist."

Over the years, she has continued to hone her musicianship by participating as a first violinist with multiple symphonies, including the Cache Symphony Orchestra (2008-2010), and the Murray Symphony (2010-2014). She was also priveleged to be included in the first annual "Utah Symphony Pro-Am" in 2012.  

"I absolutely love being able to meet new people, perform at different venues, and help make someone's day extra special. Quite simply, I can't get enough!"

"Jessica and BreAnne (Harpist) were absolutely awesome!! They were a surprise for my bride for our wedding ceremony. Now, my wife and I can't stop talking about how wonderful their performance was. Very professional and very awesome people. Thanks again, Jessica and BreAnne!!!"
"Our family was planning a graveside service for our Dad it was a very emotional time and we wanted to make his service very special. When I got online to find someone to do his music I read about Jessica. I must say she far exceeded our expectations. Her music is so beautiful, she even learned 2 of my Dad's favorite songs in just a few days. She is very professional and answered me right away and helped us to plan the music and she arrived early and made it very easy for us in our time of need. I would say if you are looking for the perfect violinist for your event you have found her. Jessica is a beautiful violinist and a very sweet lady."
"We had a dinner for about 25 couples at an outdoor pavilion. Jessica played the violin while we ate and talked. Her music was awesome and fit the event perfectly."

"Jessica is so talented! You can see how much she loves music by watching her face as she plays. My favorite song so far was Silent Night for our ward Christmas program. She is amazing!!!"


"I had Jessica play during the graveside. It was a beautiful touch to a nice graveside service. I will recommend using her and contact her again when I need a violinist."
"Jessica is a very talented violinist. You can tell she feels the music and it speaks to her. She has played since 5th grade and knew from her first lesson that she loved the violin. She's dedicated and always does her best for whatever function she's playing for. I highly recommend her."
