Violinist Stacey has been in the Outer Banks wedding music industry since 1997. She started playing the violin at just 10 years old in Springfield, Ohio. Under the instruction of John Smarelli, a prominent concertmaster and educator, Stacey developed a deep appreciation and passion for the violin and music. After college, she played two seasons with the Northern Kentucky Symphony.

Today, Stacey has continued her love for the violin and music in the Outer Banks. She is the music director of Grace Lutheran Church By-the-Sea. Stacey plays numerous community events up and down the Outer Banks throughout the year and played several years with Heart Strings & Ivory, a classical trio. To date she estimates that she has played over 1,000 weddings since her start in 1997. If you’re lucky, you may find Stacey jumping into the local music scene at her coffeehouse and pub, Sweet T’s Coffee Beer & Wine in Duck.
