Laura Springham, viola/violin
I have extensive experience as a musician throughout the U.S., as well as Europe and Bermuda. Luxurious hotels, Bermuda beaches, and formal church ceremonies are the backdrop for the many weddings and events I've played.
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. Before moving to France, 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 Wynonna 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.
Now performing in picturesque Southwest France, I am available to play 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 craft a unique playlist for your wedding or special event.
