Adagio Weddings is owned and operated by Daria Apostolova, violinist from Ukraine. She started playing violin at the age of five, with her first performance on national TV just two years later, at the age of seven. Years of practice, commitment, and dedication to her chosen craft rewarded the young girl with being the winner and Laureate of many national competitions and festivals. After graduating with a Master’s degree and receiving her Red Diploma from the Music College of Dankevich in Ukraine and then Conservatory in Odessa, Daria obtained a position with the Chamber Philarmonic Orchestra Odessa. In 2014 she released her first CD “Violin Stories”, which is available on iTunes.com and CDBaby.com. Tours of Europe and North America as a solo violinist and leading her own string quartet “Adagio” helped fuel her love for travel.
Since her family moved to the US, she is a member of the South Florida Symphony Orchestra and works with different ensembles all around Florida, doing symphony, television, and film work.
Daria and her husband Alex live in Jacksonville, FL with a little Jack Russel Terrier named Juja, which was found in the forest and flew to the US, all the way from Ukraine! In their spare time, they love to cuddle with their dog, raise cute chickens on their land, spend time with friends and cook traditional European meals. Daria also mastering her sourdough bread recipes and growing a decent collection of different orchids species.
