I am so happy I chose Anthology Strings for my ceremony music for my June wedding! They played beautiful music at our wedding! Everything was perfect and I loved how everything flowed during our ceremony. We went with a duo, and the songs sounded so lovely and created the perfect setting for our wedding. Antonia was so easy to work with and was always quick to respond to any question I had. I fully trusted them and knew I didn't have to worry about anything the day-of. Thank you again Anthology Strings!!

Sometimes there is such a gulf between your expectations and reality that disappointment becomes hard to avoid. I'm happy to say that Anthology Strings went beyond my expectations. I received so many compliments on their behalf, I had to literally forward their contact info to 3 different people during the cocktail hour.

I can not speak highly enough of Anthology Strings! These women are insanely talented and such a joy to work with from start to finish. My guests were raving about the unique song selection, from classics to modern day hits. I walked down the aisle to Bittersweet Symphony and I will hear those bars playing over and over again in my dreams. They really helped create the wedding of a lifetime. Thank you!!!

It was a pleasure to work with Anthology Strings for our special day. From our first conversations, we felt extremely comfortable with selecting them to perform during our Wedding. Antonia and the rest of the Anthology Strings team have a genuine love for music and were so easy to collaborate with. They helped make our wedding a truly unforgettable one for all in attendance! Would certainly recommend them to anyone who is looking for wonderful and talented musicians but also a group that will be excited to play any song(s) you can imagine and be very excited! A great find!

Antonia and Anthology Strings were a delight to work with! We had a couple of selections we were really excited about but kind of clueless about the rest -- Antonia was quick to provide suggestions (a number of times) and discuss whenever necessary. She also arranged the music we settled on, and it was exactly what we had wanted! We were so happy to have Anthology Strings be a part of our special day.

The level of class and gravitas that a string ensemble brings to a wedding is second to none. The wonderful people at Anthology Strings take it even one step further. Many of my guests said that the strings were their favorite part of the wedding (besides the food of course!). We had a great selection of modern hits played, and each one to perfection. Antonia took the time to sit down with us and go over all of details of our ceremony, and made us feel perfectly at ease. I can't recommend them enough.

I can't say enough about Antonia and Anthology Strings. They provided ceremony music for us at our wedding ceremony at an Armenian Orthodox Church. They were professional and kept all of our guests entertained even though one of the shuttle buses and bridal party was stuck in NYC traffic for 45 minutes after the scheduled start time. We requested non-traditional music (Rihanna, Coldplay, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra....) and they were able to play them flawlessly. They really added to our event and I wouldn't hesitate recommending them or working with them again.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Anthology Strings. Antonia was amazing from our first meeting and was committed to helping us have exactly the music and mood what we wanted. On the wedding day, the music we chose sounded perfect! I was thrilled. I've had a number of guests comment on how much they loved the music and how it added something unique and beautiful to the wedding. We were deciding between Anthology and another group and we absolutely made the right choice both in terms of professionalism and talent. I'm so grateful we chose Anthology Strings because they made our day that much more special and memorable.

It was such a pleasure to work with Antonia and Anthology Strings. They provided such beautiful music at our wedding! Is there anything more romantic than walking down the aisle to the serenade of a String quartet? They made our ceremony so unique and special, and blended perfectly into the Mass. They continued to play at our cocktail hour in the garden and guests were so impressed with them that I heard people saying, “I’m going to have an event soon so I can have them play at it.” They set a sophisticated, relaxed and joyous tone. While they are serious and professional musicians, they are also charming and engaging entertainers. We feel so lucky to have found them. Antonia was a pleasure to work with, as she is both organized and enthusiastic. We highly recommend Anthology Strings to any couple looking for beautiful music at their wedding.

I worked directly with Antonia, the business contact for the Anthology Strings quartet. She was very easygoing and professional in her dealings. We were very happy with their performance at our wedding and cocktail hour. The quartet was especially accomodating when we requested for a song to be arranged for the ceremony a few weeks before the wedding. Many people commented on what a nice touch it was to have them play during our cocktail hour!
