Greetings! I am a violinist based in Cleveland, OH, and I love music.

Here is my bio:

She also enjoys playing the viola. In addition, she regularly plays in many orchestras, including the Orchestra of Opera Circle Cleveland, Ashland Symphony, Mansfield Symphony, Youngstown Symphony, West Virginia Symphony, Warren Philharmonic, Erie Philharmonic, Cleveland Women's Orchestra, Akron Pops Orchestra, Chagrin Studio Orchestra, the Orchestra at Kent State Theatre, the Orchestra at Stark Kent, the Orchestra at Porthouse Theater of Blossom Music Center, the Orchestra at Weathervane Community Theater, Cleveland Virtuosi, and Ensemble du Monde.

Aside from performing frequently in solo, chamber, and orchestral concerts, I have extensive experience playing for weddings, funerals, church services, parties, ceremonies, corporate events, and many other occassions.

If you are looking for music to make the next significant event more special, please consider my services. Chamber ensembles such as a string quartet can be coordinated upon request. I look forward to hearing from you! wanda@wandasobieska.com
