Being a professional musician myself, the music for my daughter's wedding was so important to us. My daughter asked if I could select the music for the ceremony so I chose pieces that were dear to my heart but not necessarily in the standard wedding repertoire. Three of the four pieces were new to The Barton Strings trio but they happily searched for appropriate arrangements and performed them like they have been playing them for years. They were so professional and easy to work with. I was thrilled with their attention to detail, their beautiful tone quality and their musicality. They made this mother of the bride very happy!

Tracy and her group were sooo responsive to us and in a very timely manner. They played special requests and even used an arrangement we ordered for them. The music was Bach to Beethoven to Beatles and it was beautiful. We had several professional musicians as guests and they all told me how wonderful the quartet was. They made the sunset ceremony very elegant and complete..I happily recommend Barton Strings Quartet to anyone!!!!

At our recent wedding, Barton Strings played for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and they were amazing! I figured with members of the Austin Symphony I couldn't really go wrong, but they were even better than I'd hoped for. In addition to sounding great, they were punctual, professional and very pleasant to work with through all phases. They have a ton of selections spanning classical, rock and jazz, and their website makes it very easy to listen to samples and customize your individual playlist. They can perform in many different configurations (we used a trio) to fit budget and style, and their pricing is very reasonable! Instead of it being background noise, the music added so much to our event, and our guests raved--thank you Barton Strings!

I worked with Tracey from Barton Strings to choose our playlist for our ceremony. Our ceremony started about 15 minutes late due to late arriving guests, so they kept playing the prelude music without missing a beat. They executed everything flawlessly from beginning to end!

We used Barton Strings for our daughter's wedding ceremony and cocktail hour in October and was so very pleased. The music was exactly as we requested and the changes from one song to the next was flawless. Their music added so much to our daughter's wedding and we received many compliments on their music. From the moment we first started talking to the end of their program, we could not have been happier. Of all the vendors we worked with for the wedding, they were one of the easiest and we give them our highest recommendation!!!!!

One could not hope for a more professional group of musicians with which to work. Our contact, Tracy Seeger, as do her colleagues, has a highly impressive classical music background, and it was a total pleasure to work with her. Her warmth and flexibility were a bonus to the planning process, and we are so very pleased that they could provide the music for our ceremony at Laguna Gloria and the set for our cocktail hour. A talented and wonderful group!

Could not be more pleased with Barton Strings! I actually used them for my own wedding back in June of 2010 and when I was helping plan a wedding this May they are the first strings company that came to mind. We had an unexpected hiccup the day of the event and if it were not for Barton Strings the transition would not have happened so smoothly. To keep it short we had to usher guests to a cocktail hour before the ceremony to fix what we could not control at the time; the ladies of Barton Strings jumped on board and immediately went to the cocktail space to play light jazz type music which inevitably got every guest that way so that we could fix the hiccup and be on our way to a magical ceremony asap!

Thanks again to Tracy and everyone at Barton Strings! We truly appreciate it!

The string quartet that played at our wedding ceremony and reception was exceptional. I grew up classically trained in piano, and my family has long enjoyed listening to chamber music, and while we don't consider ourselves musical experts, we do have trained musical ears. We knew Barton Strings would deliver a lovely performance (just listen to their repertoire on their web site and review the accomplished backgrounds of their musicians), but we were blown away by the high quality and the caliber of their performance in person. We picked classical pieces for the ceremony - Bach, Pachelbel, Vivaldi, and their delivery was absolutely breathtaking. I had multiple guests tell me that the ceremony music moved them to tears! In addition to classical, they have a large list of more contemporary pieces, and our guests thoroughly enjoyed the mix of both at our reception. My parents and I decided early on in our planning that music was one area of the wedding where we would not cut any corners, and we are so happy that we had Barton Strings play at our wedding events as they added an intangible quality to the overall wedding experience. Aside from the music, as a busy bride, I truly appreciated their responsive communication, their helpful suggestions and their extremely professional manner. They truly made my wedding exceptional!

Barton Strings was an integral part of our wedding. Prior to our big day, Tracy worked with us to determine a timeline and finalize our song list. She was incredibly flexible when it came to adding some of our unconventional song requests, which included ones ranging from Mexican rancheras to Depeche Mode ballads. The day of the wedding, Barton Strings' ceremony and cocktail performances were stellar! The guests are still raving about them!

Barton Strings provided a string quartet and a trumpeter for our wedding ceremony. All of the selections were beautiful. We had a classically trained musician as a groomsman, and he raved about what a great job Barton Strings did (especially the trumpeter). I would highly recommend them to other brides!

They were perfect! They played pretty traditional music during the ceremony, but we walked out to "All we need is love" by the Beatles. Then they play more contemporary music during the cocktail hour. They have a huge song list and it was hard to narrow down what we wanted during the ceremony. They arrived on time and were VERY timely with responses - this was a huge deal for me as several other string groups did not get back to me for several weeks.

Barton Strings was very nice to work with. We had a trio for our outdoor wedding, and they sounded lovely.
They have a very large selection of music, and if you want something that is not included in their standards, they do their best to accommodate you. I wanted to have Paul McCartney's "Calico Skies" played, and they did it!
I was nervous about timing, etc. since We didn't have music available for the rehearsal, but Tracy was very patient and reassuring, and the timing was all perfect.
Also, great props to the musicians for surviving for an hour, in formal clothing, outdoors in Texas in July.

Barton Strings was great! Their music selection is large but at the same time they are very helpful in guiding you in which songs work best and the overall flow. Very professional and very easy to work with. We did a tri rather than a quartet since we had less than 100 people and it worked out perfect!

Barton Strings' string quarter provided the perfect accompaniment to our outdoor fall wedding, and most importantly, they were flexible with our budget. Tracy worked hard to accomodate our diverse range of requests; patiently tracking down sheet music for everything from U2 to the Beach Boys to Handel and Vivaldi. I was worried about how they would figure out the timing -- since I never actually saw them in person until I was walking down the aisle -- but they are absolute pros who have years of practice with all the wedding rigamaroll. Highly recommend!

Awesome, awesome, awesome. We went with a string duo for our garden wedding. In retrospect I would have booked the quartet since they did such a great job. They were affordable and very professional and talented. Our guests gave us compliments on how great the duo was and that they'd have wanted to listen to them all night. I'd definitely recommend if you want to add a touch of class to your wedding.
