About the artist
Maestro Angelito (Lito) is a violin instructor in various after-school music programs and has recently established the Student Orchestra of Los Angeles (SOLA) to pool young violinists and provide them with enriching experience in music. He also performs regularly at different assisted living facilities and nursing homes as a music therapist, believing that music is a powerful tool to relax people and relieve them of their pain.
Although he has a business degree, he pursued and made a lucrative career as a violinist and musician. His orchestral experience includes membership in the Filipino American Symphony Orchestra (FASO), Manila Symphony Orchestra (MSO), Manila Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO), Manila Chamber Orchestra (MCO), San Miguel Philharmonic Orchestra (SMPO), Laredo Symphony Orchestra (Texas) and Valley Symphony Orchestra (Los Angeles). In the 1990s, he has spent a good number of years around the world as a musician on board cruise ships such as the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Holland America Lines and Crystal Cruises.
Botchok has years of experience playing as a solo violinist for weddings, corporate functions, and private events in Southern California. His wide repertoire of songs covers music for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hour, dinner reception, and other special events that call for live music and entertainment.
What our past clients say
Jessica C.Los Angeles, CA
This is a long overdue post. Margie and team were amazing. Quick responses, fair prices, and extremely patient with me. I was so late in giving her my wedding songs and she did not complain once. I was overwhelmed with work and school and wedding planning and Margie was so helpful and understanding. The Ventura County Team - String Duet came on time. They were sweet and music was great! I'm so happy we used them 🙂 Live music is such a nice touch.

Ocdamia Music Group helped us realize our wedding vision!! Our solo violinist, Lito, was so wonderful and the music made our intimate ceremony at the Greystone Mansion come together in such a beautiful way!Lito went above and beyond, and it was apparent that he was passionate about music and making people happy. We had chosen pop and rock songs for our processional and recessional songs, etc. for our non-traditional wedding, which Lito played amazingly! He even played additional songs similar to the ones we picked during our family portraits, which he didn't have to do, but it definitely provided a nice ambiance and was greatly appreciated!Margie, the owner who coordinates everything, was so gracious and very responsive!I highly recommend Ocdamia Music Group if you want a smooth and professional process with nice and talented musicians!!

The Ocdamia Strings group are true professionals. Margie was incredibly helpful & responsive to our many questions & sent us an absolutely incredible violinist for our event. Lito was AMAZING! His arrangement was a perfect fit for the occasion & really set the mood we were looking for. We can't say enough good things about the team over at Ocdamia Strings & we will definitely be using them again in the future.
