I could not have been more pleased with the String Poets Quartet! They sounded beautiful, were professional, and they were extremely grateful to have been a part of the ceremony. I had quite a few special request and they performed them above and beyond what I could have ever expected!

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!

Hi Radhi, I am writing to let you what an amazing addition you and your string quartet were to the wedding. I only wish I could have been more appreciative on Sunday and that I could have talked with you at length, but alas, I was quite caught up in my wedding. When I first heard you playing I was getting ready in the bridal quarters and, while I am proud to say that I did not cry at all during my wedding, I almost became a faucet when I first heard you play! It was so beautiful! When I heard you play the very first notes, it was like my wedding was starting at that very moment and the whole day was brought to life. It was at that moment that it all began, as all my bridesmaids and flower girls prepared for the processional and scampered around the room to the lovely music that you played. All of my guests have repeated the sentiments to me that you added a beautiful touch to the event. I will recommend you for future weddings or any lovely event where your playing would be appropriate. You are a very talented man for having put together such an amazing group, but even more importantly, you espouse a love and happiness that transcends your music. The extra effort that you made to specialize the songs was more than many others would have done for me! Last, when you played my first dance, "Stand By Me," it was a dream come true and I will cherish that moment always. Deepest and sincere thanks,

Danielle,  

Thank you so much for serving our wedding. The music was beautiful and I want to let you know that we've received many compliments! I'll definitely look out for you if we help out in any future events in the area. You guys were wonderful to work with. THANK YOU!

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

Radhi, I cannot thank you and your colleagues enough for the beautiful music at Sarah's wedding. When I had my final review with the owner, Mark Lynch, I urged him to add the String Poets to their list of preferred vendors -- so I hope he does follow through. My husband still raves about how beautifully played the two musical interludes were (Puccini & Bernstein) and we had many friends at the wedding who are serious chamber music loves and they could not stop talking about the music -- with thanks, Gerry Otremba
