My husband and I got married in Skaneateles this past October and Candlelight Music absolutely exceed our expectations!!!!! They arrived to the church very early before the ceremony and had everything set up before any of the guests had arrived! Robert and his whole group are just beyond amazing and they have the largest music selection to choose from! The best part is that they are open to any suggestions as well and in fact, did that for me! I requested a song that wasn't on their list and Robert happily accommodated it!!! In a normally stressful planning process, this was by far the easiest choice we made. Our guests are still talking about the beautiful music played before and after the ceremony so clearly they were a hit! Do yourself a favor and check them out, you will be happy you did!!!!!

Robert and the entire Candlelight quartet were such a beautiful addition to our ceremony! It created a very romantic and peaceful mood in our church, from our lovely preludes to our grand exit as bride and groom to 'Trumpet Voluntary.' Robert was extremely responsive, thorough and friendly in our communications, answering all questions my husband and I had and making plans for the wedding day with our wedding coordinator. He was able to accommodate all of our musical requests, and offered his services at our ceremony rehearsal where he coordinated with our church vocalist. On our wedding day the quartet sounded absolutely devine and our guests were very impressed. Thank you so much to Robert and Candlelight music for setting the mood for our enchanting wedding day!

It was an honor to have Candlelight Music play during our wedding ceremony. We chose to have the string quartet play a selection of our personal song choices. They did a phenomenal job and they sounded amazing! They were reasonably priced and extremely professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is considering having a string quartet play during their wedding!!

Our experience with Candlelight Music was a 10! Robert Connell was a pleasure to work with, helping us with the selection of music as well as being open to pieces that were not on his suggested list. He worked closely with us making sure he and his musicians coordinated well with the musicians and vocalists at the church. When I walked in, 30 minutes before the ceremony, they were all set up, ready to go. I received complements the entire day, and after. My only regret was I didn't stand up and applaud after they played "The Prayer" and "Come What May" during the ceremony. Had I done that, I'm sure all guests would have followed.
Thank you Candlelight Music for helping to make my Son's wedding day perfect.

I recently used Candlelight Music at my wedding in Central New York, and could not have been happier with everything they did for us! They played fabulous music during our ceremony, and also during our cocktail hour. The mix of music was wonderful and appealed to all the different age groups of the wedding. Many of my guests commented on how beautiful the music was and what a nice touch it was for the wedding! I would absolutely recommend Candlelight Music to any couple wanting a different feel to their wedding!

When we began the process of hiring wedding vendors we knew we'd book Candlelight Music first. We'd used them for one daughter's wedding & they had done such a marvelous job, we knew we wanted them to play for our youngest daughter's wedding as well. Just as we expected, they played beautifully, & offered a wide repertoire to choose from but still were amenable to learning new pieces if we had special requests. Robert answered each email or phone call very promptly, usually within just a few hours. They were very easy to work with...arrived early, set up quickly, & played beautifully!! The result was gorgeous music on a very important day. We highly recommend them!

Candle Light Music performed at my daughter's wedding this past Saturday. The music was everything we hoped for and more. In a word superb. They also helped us locate a vocalist who likewise was outstanding. They were very helpful in helping us select music, and accommodated all of our requests. We had many compliments about the music from our guests. They were very easy to deal with, and accessible in the planning stages of the wedding.

These musicians are top-notch! From start to finish of the ceremony, the arrangements were beautifully played! We decided to go with some non-traditional songs when the girls walked down the aisle and the recessional and we couldn't have been happier!

At the last minute, we decided to do the Hawaiian version of Over the Rainbow and Robert researched this and found a version for the quartet to play. We couldn't have been more pleased!

Thank you for making our ceremony a success!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Robert and Candlelight music for our recent wedding! Not only was Robert extremely helpful before the wedding with full accessibility by phone and e-mail, he helped pick out an arrangement that went with our wedding theme and vision. He was a wealth of knowledge and answered all our questions before the ceremony. He and the group also went above and beyond when they found a few specific songs I had requested and learned them amazingly. As a matter of fact, it brought my mother to tears for her to hear the special song selection...not bad since she is a music educator herself. It really does speak to their amazing quality! The ceremony went wonderful and my guests absolutely loved their music. The music set the mood of the ceremony and reception wonderfully. I know that our wedding would not have been as memorable without the backdrop of their music. The cost was very reasonable and I would not think twice about recommending them to others or about using them again for other parties/events.

The Candlelight String Quartet was one of the best details of my entire wedding day!! Their playing was exquisite and their choice of repertoire set the perfect tone for the reception dinner. The level of musicianship is of the highest caliber and they captured the true art of Bach, Mozart and Vivaldi.
Most of the guests commented on the beautiful music and thought the Quartet added a touch of class to my special day.
From the first phone call to the last, all of the details were handled professionally and in a timely manner. Candlelight was accommodating to my wishes, organized, and personable. I highly recommend the Candlelight String Quartet for your wedding day or for any special occasion. There is no better musical experience than Candlelight.

Candlelight Music provided the music for our daughter's outdoor wedding/reception & did a beautiful job! They were prompt, unobtrusive while setting up & breaking down, and played the selections we'd previously chosen with style and elegance! Robert was very responsive, easy to communicate with, and extremely accommodating. We received many compliments from our guests about the music they provided, and our daughter & new son-in-law were both extremely happy--and they are both professional musicians! Compared with the quality of the service, I was especially pleased with how reasonable their rates were.....definitely worth every dollar! I would highly recommend them for any special occasion!

Words can't express how pleased I was with the performance of Candlelight Music! I had heard them play at an Easter service in our church this spring and was very impressed with the quality of their sound and their professionalism. Their manager, (who also plays with the group) responded immediately to my inquiry about their services, worked with me throughout, and did everything possible to make the day so special. They set up and performed for both the ceremony and the reception cocktail hour. They coordinated with my organist in playing the specially requested classical music for the ceremony, and they played a wonderful mix of classical and popular music during the cocktail hour. So many people commented on how great the music was. Everything went smoothly and sounded so beautiful; the day will always be one of my favorite memories, and a big thanks goes to Candlelight Music for making everything so unforgetable!

My husband and I hired Candlelight Music to perform the ceremony music for our wedding, and we were very pleased with the service that was provided. From the very beginning, Candlelight Music was helpful and timely in the planning process. Robert always responded to my emails within 24 hours, and he provided me with many different music selections and even researched some songs we requested that were not in their current repertoire. Robert also helped us get what we were looking for while staying within our budget. A string quartet was not in our budget, so we were going to go with a violin duo, but with Robert’s advice we went with a violin/keyboard duo. We were very happy that we took Robert’s advice because the music performed was absolutely beautiful, and like Robert said it would be, our music selections sounded fuller.
Candlelight Music was everything we wanted and more. They performed all of our requests amazingly and even filled in with appropriate music when our ceremony was running a couple of minutes late. If you are looking for musicians for your special occasion, I would definitely recommend Candlelight Music. You will not be disappointed.

Candlelight Music provided the ceremony music for our recent wedding and we were extremely pleased with their service. During the planning leading up to the wedding, Robert from Candlelight Music communicated with both my mom and I regarding all the details from timing, musical choices, contract details, etc. Robert went above and beyond by providing specific recommendations for songs and even helped me choose between 2 songs for the bridal entrance based on qualities I told him I wanted. Since my mom and I were planning the wedding from CA and NY, Robert was very acoomodating, flexible, and timely in his responses and information he provided us. The day of the wedding went very smoothly and Candlelight Music played so beautifully for our ceremony. It was exactly the "feel" that I had imagined and so many of our guests commented how great the ceremony music was. I cannot say enough about Candlelight Music and would recommend them to any couple!

Robert and Candlelight Music were everything we hoped for as ceremony musicians and then some. Throughout the music selection process they were very responsive and provided great feedback. As for the music, they played during our ceremony at Hendricks Chapel and the sound quality was exceptional. The pieces they performed added so much to our ceremony. We received a ton of great compliments on their work and our guests and ourselves were definitely impressed. We would recommend Candlelight Music to any couples who want to work with a professional group who can bring a special touch to a wedding ceremony!!

My husband and I are so pleased with the outcome of our wedding provided by the lovely music from TheCandlelight String Quartet! The quality of music from the quartet was perfect, and we continue to get compliments from our guests. We were fortunate to have them play for both our ceremony and entire reception! The quartet was very flexible at the reception as they began outdoors and eventually moved indoors during the dining hour. Robert, the main contact individual, was also very flexible in meeting with my parents and I the week of the wedding. He spent several hours with us during this time in helping us choose the appropriate pieces of music for our special day. Throughout the entire time leading up to our wedding day, Candlelight Music was always very responsive to my phone calls and emails. They truely put us at ease as we were busy planning our wedding. The group also presented themselves very professionally as their dress attire was very formal and elegant.

My husband and I are so pleased with the outcome of our wedding provided by the lovely music from TheCandlelight String Quartet! The quality of music from the quartet was perfect, and we continue to get compliments from our guests. We were fortunate to have them play for both our ceremony and entire reception! The quartet was very flexible at the reception as they began outdoors and eventually moved indoors during the dining hour. Robert, the main contact individual, was also very flexible in meeting with my parents and I the week of the wedding. He spent several hours with us during this time in helping us choose the appropriate pieces of music for our special day.

Candlelight Music was not initally part of my plan for my ceremony music, but after hearing them perform at my wedding venue a few months before my ceremony, I am so glad that I was able to invest what little extra money we had to hiring them.

I hired a string duo for the ceremony. My wedding processional was Pachabel's Cannon in D along with a pianst that was a family friend of my husband. The music sounded like it was a recording and was absolutely perfect. The duo, which included the "owner" of the company, Mr. Connolly, came dressed in tuxedos and played beautifully. I also had 2 soloist sing, and they were able to work with them as well.

They were very easy to work with. All I did was e-mail them a list of the songs we wanted them to play and the contact information of our pianist and they did the rest. Numerous people told me how beautiful their music was, and they added that touch of elegance and class that I was looking for; afterall, how many people get a string duo at their wedding?

I used Candlelight music for our wedding ceremony on September 16th 2011. I will just say that they set such a beautiful and romantic tone for the service. The string quartet looked extremely professional dressed in tuxedos. I remember arriving to the church and finally hearing what I have been planning for months. The quartet was playing the prelude music which I had selected. I just remember how beautiful they sounded. It was as if we were playing a recording. I was a violinist myself and was very satisfied with their quality of sound. Through the planning process they worked with me every step of the way even providing suggestions which were very helpful. Every question and email I wrote I was responded to either the same day or the following day. The quartet was able to play every movement I selected-some which were not even on their playlist. They even played a hymn that is very special to me during the lighting of our unity candle. So many of our guests just had the best things to say about the string quartet and how beautiful all the music was. They were the perfect touch for an unforgettable wedding ceremony. It was just like the movies :) I highly recommend this company to provide the music needs for anyones events. Cheers!

Just one week ago, on 8/13/11, Candlelight Music String Quartet played at The Cathedral of The Immaculate Conception for my daughter's wedding. They were nothing short of fabulous! (After a show of various musicians almost a year ago, our family knew we wanted this Quartet to perform for our daughter's wedding without hesitation. My daughter is trained herself in both voice and piano for many years throughout childhood, so she decided on the spot, upon hearing Candlelight Music that this is what she wanted for her wedding.) They exceeded our expectations! We were given three pages of music from which to choose for the Prelude, the Processional and the Recessional, places in the service where we could personally design our musical ceremony; this was itself impressive. We signed a contract with them immediately, not wanting to lose them to another wedding. Robert Connell of Candlelight Music was most responsive to the Mother of the Bride (me) and my calls and emails at all times. As my daughter lives out of town, this was extremely important to me as we needed to do extra coordinating. On the phone, Robert Connell spent time with me, at first explaining where all the music would come in, in the service, then even "whistling" tunes to refresh my memory when I had a question like "Ave Maria by Shubert or Handel?". The proof of their excellence, however was their performance on the Wedding Day. They played a great deal: The Prelude, many pieces during the Mass, and the Recessional. It was so beautiful, that afterwards in the receiving line, our family got comment after comment like, "I felt like I was an 'extra' in a movie in this Mass, the music was so beautiful!" and "I felt like I was watching a movie it was all so beautiful..... and the MUSIC!!". A week later we are still getting calls, cards, emails to this same effect. While I did not know that "wedding Wire" existed, I emailed Robert Connell of Candlelight Music and told him that we received such positive feedback that should he ever need a word of mouth referral, as the mother of a Bride, I would surely most highly recommend this group to anyone, for any setting! Our family could not have been any more satisfied with music on such a special day! Susan Hartman Brenizer

We are so glad we decided to use Candlelight Music to play at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We used a DJ for the reception but wanted live music for the ceremony. They were supposed to start 20 min. prior to the ceremony but were there well in advance of that time to warm up. My guests were greeted by their wonderful music and the wedding party walked down the aisle to their music. Mr. Connell was very helpful in recommending music we weren't sure about. They played both classical and popular music during the cocktail hour. We could still hear them playing as we entered the ballroom to begin the reception. They were very professional and looked as good as they sounded. They were well worth the cost and we recommend them to anyone seeking music for their wedding.

Robert, who I worked with leading up to the wedding, was wonderful to work with. He helped in the selection of the music, wihch sounded amazing. The musicians all looked professional, with the men in tuxedos and the woman in a dress. We had a DJ for the remainder of the evening, but the quartet was worth every penny.

Having a string quartet just raised the bar of elegance to the whole ceremony. One of the bridesmaids sang Ave Maria and they worked with her before the ceremony to help make everything run smooth. The quality of the music was nothing short of a 10! We highly recommend this very professional music group.

I heard of Bob Connell and Candlelight Music from my professional association with SubCat Music Studios, who raved about their talent.

Even though our wedding plans at the Cathedral (downtown Syracuse) were more than last minute, Candlelight Music was more than accommodating. As a music lover and a classical musician myself, I was absolutely delighted that I was able to pick out our repertoire. My lovely husband put the musical reins in my hands, and I was able to select the exact music I wanted for the seating of our guests as well as our ceremony proper.

Candlelight Music's online catalog was (is!) incredibly impressive.

Their talent and professionalism enhanced our day. I would recommend Candlelight Music to anyone who is getting married!

It was easy planning with Robert, he and his wife guided me to a great music choice. The music selection was very large.
I was able to work through email which was important as I was traveling around the world while planning the wedding.
I never even got to meet them face-to-face and they just went beyond expectations.
I can't wait to plan another event in NY and include them!

We had the pleasure of having Robert Connell from Candelight Music play at our wedding. We had a solo violin but the music filled up the entire chapel room. When I was in the bridal room, the music was so beautiful I was tearing up. I have received a number of compliments on his playing. It really adds a nice, classy touch and at a great price. Robert was great to work with - he answered my questions beforehand so I felt very confident just providing him with the processional/recessional song list and just let him run with it.

We were so happy with our choice to hire Candlelight music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. They were quite possibly the best money we spent at our wedding. We actually asked them to perform special request music, i.e., "Night Swimming,” by R.E.M., "San Bernardino" by the Mountain Goats and "All I Want is You," by U2, and these songs are not in their normal repertoire. They put in a lot of effort to learn new music that we had never seen before, so that we would be very happy and pleased and the results showed!! These special selections blew us away -they were so beautiful and added such a special element to our wedding. Candlelight Music knew that it was very important to us to have special music that meant a lot to us on our wedding day. I also had several phone calls with Robert Connell the lead musician throughout the planning process, and he was professional and listened carefully to what we wanted for our wedding. They were very flexible and willing to go out of their way to perform new pieces. We received so many complements on these performers it really was money very well spent! Their performance at the cocktail hour likewise was fantastic! We highly recommend Candlelight music to brides who want beautiful music and easy to work with musicians and music for your wedding that will be unforgettable!

I cannot express how wonderful Candlight Music's performance was at my June wedding. It was beyond my expectations. They were incredibly flexible with my special requests, namely "Joy to the World" by Three Dog Night, which was our recessional! We received so many compliments! They also performed an amazing amount of Beatles music, such as "Imagine," "Hard Days Night," "All You Need is Love," "When I'm 64," "I Will," "Here Comes the Sun," and "At Last" by Harry Warren. The music was so beautiful-when I was waiting in the back of the church, hearing it made me cry. Their music really made our ceremony special, and I would recommend them to any bride. And the price is great, especially considering their quality!

Wonderful choice - I highly recommend them! Our wedding was in an old inn and Candlelight Music provided our cocktail hour music (which turned into 2 hours!). What a wonderful presentation and the music was amazing! Our guests (many from out of town) were thrilled to sit and listen - a professional, class-act concert that we are still hearing people talk about in awe. Robert Connell responded readily to our calls and emails. We planned the music out very early on and they delivered all we expected and more! I live in New Jersey and the wedding was in upstate New York, so it was key we worked wtih vendors who were responsive and professional; Candlelight is both and more. Last minute, the night of the wedding, we asked them to put in overtime as the guests were still enjoying the cocktail hour AND the music - they readily accommodated. They are also just really nice people. We asked them to stay for dinner and my 83-yr old Mom was thrilled to talk to them as she played violin as a young girl. I truly appreciate how Candlelight helped make a great night a truly enchanted evening. This may sound like over-the-top praise - it is well-deserved.

At our September 2009 9-11 Memorial we were honored to have Robert Connell volunteer to join us in remembrance of the victims of September 11 2001 attacks.
After a short video of that day�s tragic events Robert came to play for us as the victim�s names were scrolled on a video screen in our front yard for our guests to see. The night brought cold wind and rain and Robert endured the elements to bring us an exceptional performance. His solo violin brought an emotional element to the evening felt by all who attended.

Candlelight Music was a fantastic addition to our wedding. From the moment we called Robert to inquire about availability and cost to the wedding day itself, they were friendly, easy to work with and excited for us. Their fantastic musical talents set a fun and sophisticated tone for the whole day. We asked Candlelight Music to learn a new, very non-traditional song for the ceremony. Not only did they learn the new music but they were enthusiastic about it. Their reaction made us feel even more excited and comfortable in our wedding planning. The opening song is still something our guests talk about and remember as one of the best moments of our wedding. We do too. You can't go wrong booking this group!

We would like to give a heartfelt thanks to Candlelight Music for making our wedding anniversary a truly unforgettable evening.
I had contacted Candlelight Music (Robert Connell) to perform as a surprise to my wife at our anniversary party. After confirming dates and times I had to cancel the engagement. A week later I contacted Robert with a request to change the dates and times to pull the surprise dinner party together. Candlelight Music was more than accommodating at meeting my last minute requests.
After discussing the repertoire for the evening I presented Robert with the sheet music and CD copy of a song that was one of our wedding songs, which had been released by the rock band Genesis in 1977. I asked if he could perform this song and after a quick review Robert warmly agreed.
Robert Connell and Bill Verity did not simply perform as hired musicians at our anniversary dinner they made themselves a special part of our gathering.
We will forever cherish that evening.
As for their performance of the Genesis song, Outstanding!

Thank You,
Ken and Carolyn Francisco

The Candlelight String Quartet played the prelude music and the music after the processional at my daughter's wedding @ the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception on 8/23/08 in Syracuse, NY. It was perfect; they were able to play even obscure Classical pieces as well as Modern ones; they were immpeccably attired (white dinner jackets) and worked well with the organist and the man who sang at the wedding. Many guests commented on the music, always mentioning the String Quartet. They are well worth the cost, which actually is quite reasonable.

What can I say, I'm spoiled and wanted really amazing music at my wedding! I found that and more, from Candlelight Music. A group of well trained, professionals, who added that extra special touch I was looking for on my big day! They were able to play a variety of music and worked well with the other musicians I had involved, that day. Guests that came to my wedding, are still talking about it, 5 years later!

I hired Candlelight Music for my wedding on August 17th. My husband and I were so extreamly happy with everything, from our first email conversation, to the planning of music, to their performance on our big day. They made everything so easy, which I was so grateful for. As I'm sure everyone knows, there is so much planning and detail work that goes into a wedding but it was nice to know that they had everything under control and I didn't ever have to worry about that part of my wedding.

The day of our wedding I walked into the church and was amazed by what I heard. Their music was flawless and seamless. They were dressed very nice in white tuxes and it all just added that extra touch of class and emotion to our ceremony. But the most amazing part was that they came in a little before our event, practiced for a relatively short time with our cantor and the organist from the church but sounded like they had all worked together for years. Absolutely beautiful music.

All of our guests comments on how amazing the music was. They said our ceremony was truly the best they had ever been to and I really feel it was because of Candlelight Music.

I would recommend them 110% to any bride to be. Without a doubt I know they would be a great addition to any wedding.

Thanks so much Candlelight Music!!!

I'm so happy we asked Candlelight Music to play at our ceremony! Robert and the rest of the quartet played beautifully, and required very little of our attention and energy as we planned our wedding day. Their professionalism and experience with weddings was more than we could ask for! They were happy to play any songs we'd like and put my worrying mind at ease. Thank you, Candlelight Music!

Candlelight Music is a group of professional, experienced, and seasoned musicians. They completely set the tone for my ceremony and reception making it an intimate, dreamy, romantic, and memorable occasion. All of my guests enjoyed themselves so much, and they agreed that the reception would not have been the same without the music provided by Candlelight. The quartet had a vast repertoire, and were happy to accommodate requests. In my opinion, anyone who hires a DJ for their special, once-in-a-lifetime wedding day is missing out on a great experience provided by this group.

Robert, the contact person, was never available when I called him but always returned me call within 24 hours. He knew a Catholic wedding with Mass from top to bottom and was helpful at filling in any gaps. The music itself was wonderful and several people told me how much they enjoyed the music. They also arrived at the church ahead of schedule.

We were able to listen to a preview of their music online. A contract arrived promptly in the mail with clear expectations and pricing. the musicians were punctual, arriving well in advance of the ceremony to set up and practice. When told that they would have to move and set up to play during the cocktail portion of the reception, they said "no problem" and went to check with the catering manager where the best place that would be (this all occured before guests began to arrive) The music played throughout the ceremony and beyond was beautiful. Many of our guests complimented them to us at various times throughout the reception.

Candlelight music provided us with a string quartet for our ceremony. The music itself was good, and you can get a demo CD from them if you ask, which is very helpful. The only disappointing part of dealing with Candlelight music is the complete lack of communication. Phone calls are rarely answered and messages are not returned. Email is also rarely replied to. It's like sending requests into a black box. I sent our music selection to Mr. Connell 2 weeks prior to the ceremony and then heard nothing from him. I called and left a message with his wife, and he did not return my call. I finally spoke to him the MORNING OF THE WEDDING when I had to spend 10 minutes on the phone with him (while getting my hair done) giving him directions.

Unfortunately, there are not too many options for string quartets in the region, and since the quality of the music itself is good, you just have to have patience and persistence.
