From the first time I contacted Radhi Santos from String Poets, he was confident and enthusiastic about performing the ceremony and cocktail hour music for our wedding. He listened to what I wanted the atmosphere to be like, and suggested music to create the happy environment I wanted. Radhi was responsive, super professional, and the trio that played at the wedding sounded incredible. When I think back on my wedding day, one of the things I actually remember is the music String Poets was playing. It was nice not having to worry about this part of the wedding; completely worth it!
I couldn't have been more pleased. These guys sounded just perfect! They played a non-traditional piece for me as I walked down the aisle - Dvorak's Humoresque No.7 as well as other pieces we selected for the reception. They are finely skilled musicians and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a string trio (they also have a string quartet) for their event.
We had the String Poets play at our Catholic ceremony and their music was beautiful! The whole day was a big blur but I knew that the music was great after all of our guests asked about them and complimented them. Then when we watched our video - we again saw how wonderful they were! Highly recommend and Radhi was Super easy to work with!
I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for the wonderful job you did at my daughter Sarah’s wedding at the Baltimore Basilica Saturday. It sounded so wonderful and made the wedding even more special. So many of our guests commented on the beautiful music. I was glad our wedding planner Elle knew about you! Thanks again!
Philadelphia String Quartet's set the tone for the entire wedding with their beautiful music and tone. I am a professional musician and I was very particular with the music for my son's wedding. Radhi Santos was excellent to work with and impressed my son's fiance with the time that he spent with her planning songs for the ceremony. I would highly recommend String Poets to anyone. The group is made up of professional musicians who perform as principals with major area orchestras. They are highly trained and take pride in their work. Thank you String Poets for making my son and daughter in law's wedding such a beautiful occasion.
Many thanks to the String Poets for playing at our wedding. The music played a very important part in our wedding, as you know, and you performed the pieces just as I wanted them to be played! At one point I was swaying to the music(I think it was Vocalise) and my husband even noticed me doing it, just in the moment and enjoying everything about the day. I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you in person! I was running a bit late from the hairdresser and I just had to get upstairs and get dressed and be ready in 30 min. Thank you again for making our day special for us! -Chris
Everyone loved Philadelphia String Quartet's performance. I was very happy and satisfied!
Thank you all very much for a wonderful performance at our wedding! Your professionalism, timing and etiquette were above reproach. I am just sorry that I wasn't able to enjoy every minute:) As the bride, I was a little busy getting ready and posing for an endless string of photographs. My new husband and I were very, very pleased. Please let all of the musicians know that they were an integral and enjoyable part of our wedding. All the best, Jenn and Bernie
"My daughter's wedding was planned in only three months. The String Poets (and their lead, Radhi Santos) were a dream to work with on repertory. The musical quality of the quartet is outstanding. Friends who regularly attend world-class concerts praised their talent and overall performance. You will be delighted to have them play for you at any occasion. "
