Celebrations of Life

Sincere gratitude to Stephen Kaplan aka “The Maestro of Magic” for the amazing job he did as MC at our mom’s service and celebration of life. He helped us see light on an unbearable day with his keen sense of humour.....and added levity to such a sad event. Your heartfelt words also moved everyone to tears and was a perfect balance for the event. I would highly recommend Stephen and encouraged him to embark on his new venture “Life’s Last Levity” as I know that he will deliver a memorable send off to your loved one on such an important day.

Just want to say how wonderful you shepherded the proceedings for our Mother's Celebration of Life from beginning to end. Everyone said that the celebration was absolutely wonderful. Thanks a million, you did a fantastic job - the pacing was terrific!"

~Michael Friedman - Musical Artist

I've known Stephen aka Maestro for a long time now. He is consider to be a family friend of ours. To me and my mother.
I remember a Few Years Back in late 2019 when my Mother suddenly passed away. I was literally so lost and confused on what to do. Luckily for Me , Stephen was there to support and help me out thru all of it and by becoming the celebrant service provider during that time. He was extremely professional and made everyone felt at ease during the celebration of life.
Not only was he the MC of it all but he went above and beyond to ensure I was okay and my relatives are okay during the celebration of life service.
I'd give him 10 star rating
Thank you for all that you do.

Game Shows

We invited The Maestro to attend an annual employee recognition event that we hold at our Hotel each year. he performed some magic for our employees at their tables during dinner then hosted his Bingo game show for us afterwards, it was awesome! Our employees were engaged, participated and had fun throughout the show. It really made this year’s event special and most of all fun. I would highly recommend The Maestro!

We hired The Maestro as our MC for our wedding reception and he was absolutely extraordinary! The best MC anyone can ask for! We have numerous great comments from guests saying how amazing he was! He also did a bit a magic to kill some time! Great improvisor and very easy to work with. Many people ask their friends or family but we believe that hiring an MC is well worth it! No stress on family and friends and no awkward silences. Best decision we made and it made our wedding super fun and engaging for guests. He was able to suggest great ideas for weddings. We highly recommend The Maestro! 5+ stars!!
