Jill and Troy did a wonderful job for our daughter's wedding on the promenade at the Inn at Henderson's Wharf in Fells Point. From the pre-ceremony music to the processional and recessional to the cocktail hour, their performance was spot on and set a lovely mood. The processional was the very traditional Pachelbel's "Canon in D" but Whitney chose "Brown-Eyed Girl" for her recessional and we received so many compliments on how wonderful it sounded on flute and guitar! We worked with Jill through the planning process and she was on top of the details from step one and made it very easy for us. I would recommend Antares to anyone!

Antares was a pleasure to work with! Despite hiring them at literally the last moment, they came through and did a wonderful job. Everyone loved the music that they played before, during, and after our wedding ceremony. I would recommend them to anyone.

We were so pleased with Antares Musicians. The Peabody Library does not allow amplified music in the cocktail hour space, so Antares provided a string trio for the cocktail hour. Admittedly we didn't get to hear their whole set because we weren't in the cocktail hour the whole time, but what we heard was wonderful and our guests raved about it. We asked for a mix of classical, jazz and pop so there was a something for everyone! It was easy to work with them in advance and they were quite flexible. Highly recommend Antares Musicians!

I worked with Jill while planning my daughter's wedding, and she was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. She contacted me weeks prior to the wedding to prompt me for necessary details. They are extremely thorough and professional, and their music is just beautiful. We selected the string quartet for the ceremony. They played 30 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony (30 minute ceremony), and we actually used the musicians' start time as the start time of the wedding on our invitations. This worked out wonderfully by ensuring that the guests arrived on time, enjoyed a mini concert prior to the ceremony, and the ceremony was able to start right on time. They played a wonderful variety of both classical and contemporary music, and they have a very large music library from which to select. We had many compliments from our guest, and I highly recommend the Antares Musicians.

The best!! We got married at Corpus Christi church (which they were very familiar with) so it was really easy for me to just pick the music and let them know what time to show up. They took care of the rest! They even added a song at the last minute that they had to order music for. They asked that I send a check in the mail (I forgot!) and they still played it anyway. I really appreciated their excellent customer service. All of Jill's emails were professional and she always offered her time to talk things through if something didn't make sense or I needed clarification. Everything was so thorough, I only spoke with her once in the beginning to introduce myself.

Having a string quartet was really important to me, and they went above and beyond. They have an amazing range of song options so I did a mix of classics and some more familiar songs from recent films/pop hits. Actually, just before I walked down the aisle they played Moon River, and it was so beautiful I burst into tears. A happy memory :)

We had a excellent experience. The musicians (flute, violin, and cello) were familiar with the venue (The Cloisters), very professional, and completely self-directed. Their selection of music was very appropriate for the occasion. Many guests commented very favorably on the music. it was way, way better than the more traditional organ or prerecord music.Jill was our contact person and she made the planning part easy. Very accessible and prompt responses via email.

The Antares Musicians performed wonderfully at our daughters recent wedding. The samples they provide make selection easy and Jill T. was helpful answering our questions. Many of our guest complimented their skill; the string quartet for the ceremony and cocktail hour was one of my favorite aspects about the wedding!

I called around to various musician groups, and Antares Musicians had by far the lowest fee. I thought we might be sacrificing quality, but that was not the case at all. They were a pleasure to deal with and they sounded amazing. I recommend them without any reservations.
