"Heidi recently played for our private dinner on a balcony overlooking the golf course at Torrey Pines. Her music added a fantastic touch to a magical evening! Heidi also gave us a lot of flexibility in song selections. She played classical for twenty minutes, contemporary for 20 more and some sentimental favorites for the last twenty minutes.
The evening musical entertainment built into a great crescendo!
Thank you Heidi!!!"
Private Dinner at the Lodge at Torrey Pines
"We were fortunate to have found Heidi Thomas to play violin for our wedding in July of this year.
We met with Heidi prior to the wedding at a local coffee shop. We expected her to have us listen to taped recordings of her music. Instead she proceeded to play various pieces on her violin while we sat and listened.
I will never forget how beautiful the sound of her violin was. People from the coffee shop stopped talking to listen and one couple asked her to come to their table to play.
On the day of our wedding the sound of her violin gave such a sense of beauty to the ceremony and to the reception it is hard to describe in words. All of the guests were impressed by Heidi’s talent. She played each piece from our selection flawlessly and was able to transition seamlessly from one violin piece to another demonstrating her skill as a violinist.
In addition to being a talented violinist Heidi was highly professional and a joy to work with.
We highly recommend Heidi Thomas to other couples who wish to have the beauty and elegance that Heidi’s music adds to the event.”

"Heidi is amazing violinist. My husband John and I got married at the Point Loma Lighthouse and because it's located at Cabrillo National Monument were given many restrictions on what our ceremony could and could not have. One of our restrictions was that we could not use any type of amplification system. We were worried that having someone play at our wedding without amplification would be hard to hear and easily drowned out by the windy conditions on the cliff.
The park ranger suggested we choose a string instrument because the sound would carry. After listening to countless hour of guitar solos, harps, and other stringed instruments, we finally heard the the most beautiful sound. It was a demo from Heidi. I instantly knew that having a violinist was the perfect match for the type of atmosphere I wanted at my wedding.
After a few quick emails, Heidi met John and I at the Lighthouse where she played Over the Rainbow and a handful of classical songs. Within seconds of being at the wedding location and listening to the music, I was overjoyed with happiness. She was a perfect fit for our perfect day. In our emails, I gave her parameters of what I was looking for but didn't give her too many specifics but during her 'audition' she played everything I was looking for. She was very well versed in classical music and was willing to learn any other music I had in mind for the big day.
During the audition we stood at different distances to test out how audible the violin would be. To my surprise we could hear it far beyond where our guests would be. This eased my fear that the wind would drown out the music.
Heidi was professional and a good communicator. I was impressed that she asked us if we needed her to wear a certain color for the wedding to make sure she matched/ fit in.
Heidi was personable, sweet, and most of all an excellent violinist and musician. She was easy to work with and made a beautiful addition to the wedding atmosphere."

“Heidi is an amazing violinist! She adds so much to any event. I am a financial advisor and I had Heidi play background music for the dinner and other activities (we had artists displaying their works) at one of my seminars. My clients loved her and even pulled up chairs and just sat to listen at the end of the event. I had great feedback from everyone who attended. Heidi is really pleasant to work with, dependable, and fantastic musically. I would highly recommend her!”

“We were extremely pleased with Heidi as a musician for our wedding. She was professional, flexible, easy to work with and an excellent violinist. We had a couple last minute changes to the music (as most weddings do) and she stayed up to the challenge. She also was flexible when it came to working with our pianist and other violinist. I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a quality musician.”

"Beautiful Violin, amazing skill! Heidi really helped to set the atmosphere we wanted for our special day. If you want a lovely and professional violin player definitely give a Heidi a call!"
"Definitely beautiful music throughout the ceremony. We were VERY satisfied with the quartet and very pleasant to deal with. Everything went smoothly. Will absolutely recommend for the ceremony as it gives a nice ambiance."
"You can image the grief one goes thru when a loved one has passed on and you feel duty bound to truly honor them with a uplifting service. We contacted Heidi and asked if she could play a few of our loved one's favorite songs. Not only was the call done on short notice but Heidi agreed immediately to help celebrate the life of our loved one by playing at his service. She was not only early, but the music that came from her violin was absolutely beautiful and made the service that much more special. Thank you Heidi for your warm smile and inspiring music. I just hope the next time I need a violinist, that its for a happier occasion. Thank you so much."
“I had Heidi play her violin on my wedding day and it was beautiful. It was everything I had imagined and more. We got married on pacific beach and it was the perfect touch to our ceremony. Heidi was very professional and easy to work with. Our ceremony ran a little longer than expected and she just went right along with the flow. It was so nice to have one less thing to worry about on my special day. She showed up early and stayed until the entire ceremony was over, dressed professional, and played flawlessly. I had many people tell me after the ceremony that her music gave them goose bumps and have beautiful it was. I would highly recommend her for any occasion and am so happy I used her for mine.”
