Jill Zor and her team were fantastic! I received comments from my guests on how beautiful the music from the string quartet was. Jill was incredibly helpful throughout the entire music selection process and gave me lots of suggestions when I wasn't sure where to go. She was very fair and reasonable and ! I found their pricing to be one of the most competitive from everyone I researched. If you're looking for a solo or string quartet, Jill Zor is the way to go! You won't be disappointed! Thank you Jill!

Jill was great to work with and communicate. She was very attentive and patient with us. She wanted to make sure everything would go smooth for the day of the wedding and it did! I was very pleased with her performance

My family had a special event and requested that Jill select the music that she felt would be appropriate. The result: Jill was very respectful of the occasion with her appearance, her demeanor and was as beautiful as the music that she played.

I have had the pleasure of hearing Jill Zor play violin at a recital she held for her students, and at a private party. She played beautifully! In speaking with Jill I was amazed at the variety of music she has mastered and enjoys playing, and coupled with her beauty, grace and professionalism, I would not hesitate to hire her for any special party or event!

Jill did a beautiful job with our ceremony music. I would recommend her to everyone. She asked what music we wanted and offered to learn new music for us if we wanted anything different than her normal songs. She is amazing!
