About Karen Rose

Born into a family of musicians, I have been performing violin music for weddings since I was very young. I joined the Musicians Union when I was 15. I love to make couples happy. I help brides plan for every step of their ceremony. I have a song list and fill-in-the-blank music order. I also learn new songs easily. Planning is made simple with my experienced ear for music.
