Event Repertoire


The following list reflects commonly requested pieces from a mostly classical repertoire.


Please note that all pieces listed here are available for solo violin but may or may not be available for a particular ensemble configuration. If you are hiring an ensemble (duo, trio, quartet), please contact Laurel Thomsen to ensure that your requests are available for your desired ensemble. If not, she will try to locate it. If she must purchase sheet music, arrange parts, or transcribe parts when none exist, there will be an additional fee to compensate Laurel for her time and energy.


If you have a request that you do not find listed here, contact Laurel. She can certainly attempt to obtain the sheet music. If no sheet music exists, or if it is for different instruments/ensembles, Laurel can be hired to arrange/transcribe parts. Arranging/transcribing fees are dependent on the nature of the individual project. If you purchase the sheet music, but the piece is new to Laurel, she will charge a modest fee for her time learning and preparing the piece.


The non-classical portion of this list is not exhaustive. Please contact Laurel for information about her repertoire beyond the classical genre or for non-classical song requests.
