Hello There!


Welcome!  My name is Carmen Lasceski-Custers, and I am a professional Toronto based violinist, vocalist, and pedagogue.  

"Hmm," you might be thinking.  "That's an unusual combination.  What is it that you do?" 

In a nutshell, I create uniquely curated concert programs that combine classical violin with jazz vocals.  I am also the owner of Cavatina Violin Studio, where I teach students of all ages and ability levels.  

I am available for hire both as a violinist and vocalist for concerts, special events, and weddings throughout the Greater Toronto Area, Southwestern Ontario, and Midwestern United States.  To learn a little more about me, explore the links below!
