Top 40, rock, pop, classical, jazz, and traditional ... all on violin
Strings in Motion is a solo violin performance experience, featuring Stefanie Hutka. Stefanie is a classically-trained violinist, and holds an ARCT in Violin Performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) - the highest academic credential on violin awarded by the RCM. Stefanie has also received specialized training in Cape Breton fiddle, traditional Scottish music, jazz, and composition, and has been performing professionally since 2002. Collectively, these experiences have allowed Stefanie to create Strings in Motion's unique, high-impact performances, with all concerts featuring a dynamic blend of genres. All violin music is custom-arranged by Stefanie; Top 40 selections are prepared weekly, keeping performances cutting-edge.
Strings in Motion will work with you to deliver an outstanding musical performance, tailored to your special event. Upon booking, each client receives a consultation with Stefanie, considering amplification requirements, the musical tastes of the client and guests, timing of the performance (Strings in Motion is often a surprise guest at events), and wardrobe. Following consultation, Stefanie will liaise with the venue to ensure all technical arrangements are set for day of the performance. This means that you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the performance!
With incredible attention to detail and thoughtful consideration of all aspects of the performance experience, Strings in Motion creates an exceptional concert that your guests will remember for years to come.
I would like to say it again: The performance last night was simply fabulous, and made this event very special for everyone there!
Thanks again, and we definitely look forward to future opportunities.

Driving from London to Toronto to hear Strings in Motion Inc. perform at Brookfield Place at Christmas has become a holiday tradition for my husband and I. Listening to Stefanie Hutka expertly perform a range of songs from traditional Christmas tunes to more contemporary pieces is a perfect addition to the holiday season.
Stefanie is an excellent performer who always pleases her audience. Thanks Stefanie!
Christine Callaghan, London, Ontario
Thank you so much for an awesome performance last night! I know Shelley and the girls, and everyone else at the wedding, really loved it. We are definitely adding you to our preferred supplier list. It was great working with you.
Jacquie Conte, Wedding Coordinator, White Oaks Conference Resort & Spa, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON
Thank you very much for helping make our wedding day special with your violin performance. We enjoyed your ability to perform traditional classical pieces during our wedding ceremony, and then transitioning to more modern musical pieces for the cocktail reception. Many of our guests went out of their way to tell us how much they loved your performance! We would not hesitate to recommend Strings in Motion to family & friends in the future. Thank you again!
