As professional classical musicians ourselves, my wife and I wanted to emphasize quality of musicianship for our wedding ceremony. Arioso Strings delivered a performance that exceeded our high expectations! They were totally professional in all aspects of our working with them. Arioso Strings elevated our ceremony with their gorgeous playing, and I would gladly recommend them to anyone looking for outstanding music and no-hassle professionalism for their wedding.

It was really fun to be able to play for professional musicians from my Alma Mater, Eastman School of Music. Your scoring of the Mahler for the processional was a treat to play and really made the moment special for us. Thank you for sharing it with us and having Arioso Strings as a part of this wonderful time.

It is hard to put into words the beauty and importance of the contribution Arioso Strings brought to our Son's wedding. Mary and the four musicians she sent for our string quartet music were professional, thoughtful, hard-working and superb communicators. Our requirements for special music - where they worked to secure music themselves and to learn and perform pieces we secured for them - were an important aspect of the service preparation for us and Mary and the folks at Arioso Strings did a great job of guiding us through the process and preparing all of the music expertly. In this regard we were so impressed that they did exactly as advertised; not just playing from their repertoire, as some would, but in being fully open to and capable of taking on unusual pieces to make the occasion exactly and uniquely what the bride and groom wanted. They were on time, sensitive to our needs as customers, wonderfully responsive and beautifully artistic in what they brought to that wedding service. These are excellent musicians working for a well-run professional organization, and they deliver their services not in the aloof or self-important way that artistic groups are sometimes prone to be - just the opposite, these folks care deeply about satisfying the customer. My wife and I and many of our guests were joyfully at the point of tears at so many parts of the evening and these dedicated, talented musicians were there creating the perfect artistic setting and focus for all of that joy. For all these reasons we recommend Arioso Strings wholeheartedly!

My husband and I were very pleased with Arioso Strings from the time we booked them to our wedding day. They were prompt, professional, and attentive. As a busy bride who was also in grad school, their friendly reminders of selecting music, tips on creating a wedding program, making final payments, etc. was extremely helpful and appreciated! We booked a cello player and a violinist and all of our guests commented about how unbelievably romantic the ambiance was for our ceremony!

If you're looking for the perfect string quartet for your wedding, look no further than Arioso Strings! I wanted a very classic wedding, with a string quartet playing classical music during the ceremony and reception. But when I looked at the repertoire online, I was delighted to find modern music as well (Coldplay, for one) that was beautiful when played by Arioso Strings and just perfect for the reception! We also thought of changing the wedding date by a few days (which we did not, in the end), but Arioso Strings was very flexible. I loved working with Mary Block-- she was always very friendly and helpful. Don't waste another wedding-planning moment looking into other vendors-- Arioso Strings was absolutely perfect. :)

I really enjoyed having Arioso Strings at my wedding. They were so flexible and helped me work the song of my dreams into my ceremony. I wanted a song that was not in their repertoire or even written for strings, and Mary and the group were quick to get the ball rolling on making my song work for strings and I remember hearing it as I came down the aisle and it was perfect. This is a group who will truly go the extra mile to give you the musical details you want on your big day.

The professionalism and quality of the service that Arioso Strings provided at our wedding at Bay 7 in Durham on February 28th was incredible. As a musician, I was a little nervous about contracting out this aspect of the ceremony, but I had nothing to worry about. The music was terrific! The musicians showed up promptly prior to the ceremony, played, and exited without any distraction. I can't recommend Arioso Strings highly enough- simply a joy to work with and money well spent!

I thought the Arioso Strings music set the perfect mood and setting for the Wedding Ceremony.
They were generous in the amount of time they played, and with one beautiful composition flowing into the next it provided a soothing yet expectant setting. Aunt Ann

I absolutely loved the string quartet. It really set the mood of the evening.
Brenda

The string group was lovely and set a peaceful mood for the entire ceremony. We enjoyed them. Laura

We were swept away by the music, from the first note to the end note....actually Caroline and I got a little teary-eyed with the shear beauty of the music - I say Bravo!!!! Bonnie

Delightful and I would highly recommend them
Have them come on a tour to Williston, ND concert series (that’s where they’re from!)
