Show Producer, Performer & Creator

Ms. Martin is a Juilliard trained violinist, pianist and singer and, most uniquely, the World’s Only Aerial Acrobatic Violinist. Ms. Martin travels the world over performing her one-of-a-kind shows and acts either with her 5-piece band, as a soloist with symphony orchestras or as part of the extraordinary group Cirque de la Symphonie (CDLS).  As part of CDLS, she has performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Boston Pops to name a few.   “She displayed fine spirit and sound communicative instincts…played with engaging tone and exceptional stylistic insight,” says Paul Griffiths from the New York Times.

Martin’s interest in music started when she was 4 years old as a pianist and then became a violinist at the age of 5.  Janice’s unusual musical path led her to join the United States Army where she did her Basic Training at Ft. Leonardwood, MO and following that was stationed in Washington DC performing with the United States Army Band as a violin soloist in the White House, the Capitol, the State Department, and other presidential performances.

Following her enlistment, Ms. Martin had a successful debut at Carnegie Hall and released her first violin CD.

Martin conquered her fear of heights in the Army Basic Training and then became an aerialist that “performs high over audiences.” This feat prompted her to write a children’s book “How I learned to fly” which has offered hope and inspiration to children.  “Don’t let fear stop you from being the person you can be,” states  Martin.

Martin was introduced to the Branson, MO audience while playing as a special guest in “Fiery Fiddles” at the World Fest at Silver Dollar City.   She then went on to become the headlining act at the Showboat Branson Belle in Branson MO for 6 years. With new ideas and excitement to meet the demands of a changing Branson audience, Martin opens her own show in Branson, MO at the Americana Theatre.
