"Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without."  Confucius

I have a Bachelor's degree from Eastern Washington University and a Master's degree from the College-Conservatory of Music, University of Cincinnati. Both degrees are in viola performance. I've performed both violin and viola with professional orchestras, chamber groups, for weddings and special events since I was a teenager. Most recently I was employed at the Bermuda School of Music in Bermuda as a music teacher and performer for 9 years.

I've had the privilege to play in orchestras that accompanied world-renowned artists such as Smokey Robinson, Kenny Rogers, John Legend, and Wyonna Judd. I was principal viola for the Bermuda Philharmonic Orchestra, and before moving to Bermuda was a very active performer in the Greater Cincinnati area. I was principal viola for the Huntington Symphony Orchestra and also performed with many other regional professional orchestras.

I am now available in picturesque South West France, Poitou-Charentes region, to offer my services for your perfect wedding day or special event.

I can provide music before, during, and after the ceremony, and additionally during cocktail hour and/or dinner to add a beautiful ambiance. Classical, pop, rock, fiddle, traditional. folk, or religious music can be a part of your special day. I will work with you personally to provide the music for your wedding or special event.

"Laura was very helpful selecting quality music that was not the same typical pieces played at every other wedding. I'm pretty sure she even arranged a specific piece that I had wanted specifically for the occasion! Her playing is obviously excellent, and it enhanced the service rather than overwhelming it. I would definitely recommend Laura for thoughtful and unique wedding music!"

"My wedding day was fantastic. It was a beautiful  intimate morning held outside in a garden setting so the amazing flowers decorated the scenery.  The guests were happy and the food was delicious.  The best thing of all was having the violinist Mrs. Laura Springham playing at the wedding, something I always dreamed of while the guest were mingling,  Laura was playing my favorite songs, including classical favorites by Bach and Handel. The most exciting part is when I was walking down the aisle and she played "Here comes the Bride."  The guests loved Mrs. Springham.  She fit right in the occasion and best of all the fantastic music she played.  I am so glad I had a violinist and not a D.J. to play the music. It was so unique and romantic.  Thank you, Laura!!"

"Laura's performance added a beautiful and elegant touch to our wedding. It was a warm spring day, so the doors and windows were open and guests could hear music in the air as they approached the church. During the ceremony, Laura played my special request - "A Time for Us" from Romeo & Juliet - and I don't think there was a dry eye in the room. Laura's performance was not only memorable for my husband and I, but made a lasting impression on our guests as well. "

"My husband and I were married in 2008. Walking down the aisle to Laura's beautiful music made our day seem enchanting and magical! Fast forward to January 2013, our eldest began violin lessons...lo and behold our appointed teacher was Laura! We were very pleased! Our daughter flourished under Laura's instruction! Laura has a special way with children that motivates and encourages them. She is mild mannered and makes learning fun for parents and children. We miss her and are forever grateful to her for the impact she has had on our lives. We love music and we love her!"
