This was our second experience with La Corda String Ensemble. They performed at our daughters outdoor wedding ceremony in 2011, and for our son's wedding this past weekend. We hired a trio of instrumentalists for the outdoor wedding ceremony, and a duet for our son's wedding that took place in a small church. In both venues they added the ambiance that made the whole ceremony so much more special. They were professional from start to finish. We were not sure what types of music to play other than the bridal entrance and they helped us with that as well. We will be using them for future events for sure!!!

Here's the thank you I send the group after our wedding: "Thanks for providing beautiful music for our June 1st wedding ceremony in Ann Arbor. You helped make our dream wedding a reality. We got several comments on your ensemble. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to other couples." La Corda was the perfect touch at our wedding ceremony. Hearing their music was what made me tear up walking down the aisle. They really helped personalize our ceremony by playing our college fight song during the recessional too!

After a cursory search for ceremony musicians, we discovered La Corda. We were surprised to find that their prices were more budget friendly than other, less experienced groups. My husband's family has a great ear for music (his father plays in a symphony himself, his mother taught music, and he and his sister also play multiple instruments), and they were all singing praises! George was such a pleasure to work with, and he took the stress out of the planning process. On the day of, George took charge in order to make sure that our day turned out perfectly!

Thank you, La Corda!

La Corda String ensemble goes above and beyond what could ever be expected of a string trio or quartet. They were friendly, easy to work with, and even tailored the music selections to make our wedding ceremony and rehearsal perfect.

Skilled and professional, these folks can and will do anything you ask of them. From classical masterpieces to Lady Gaga, you will not be disappointed.

We hired a trio from La Corda to provide music for both the outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour. They were punctual, professional and played beautifully. The music combined with the ambience of the War Memorial made for a magicial day. George was great to work with. His timely responses to emails and questions gave us confidence that the performance on the big day would be nothing short of perfect - and it was. George made a special point of coming to say goodbye at the end of the cocktail hour; just another personal touch from a first-class team. Thank you.

We used the La Corda Ensemble String Trio for our wedding and cocktail hour, and they were truly great. The musicians looked professional - all three men wore matching tuxedos. They also sounded amazing - their performance was flawless. To this end, we continue to receive numerous compliments from our guests about how wonderful the music was.

We hired the string quartet for our July 30th wedding ceremony and could not of been happier with their performance. They played all of the music flawlessly and really made the ceremony unique. We had a number of guests compliment us on how beautiful the music was.
Their large repertoire of music was very helpful since we wanted to stray away from some of the more traditional ceremony music. George was extremely helpful and attentive to what we wanted. He made the whole experience easy for us and I had complete confidence in the La Corda throughout the entire process. We highly recommend La Corda!!

We hired a string trio for our outdoor wedding ceremony. Our playlist was rather unconventional as I tried to avoid ceremony music cliche. However, it was not difficult to program it due to their wide range of repertoire. I have pretty high standards when it comes to classical music as I studied and performed music in college. They played very professionally and beautifully and we heard many good comments about ceremony music from our guests. A bonus, we can now tell people that we hired an ensemble who played at Eminem's wedding!

I can't say enough "good things" about La Corda! At first, I didn't believe I could afford a String Trio on my budget, let alone have them play for a whole hour!

George is a doll to work with! He made planning the music so easy. My guests were so impressed. I am so glad I went with La Corda!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about LaCorda! I hired LaCorda as a string quartet to play during the ceremony and cocktail hour. George was an enormous help! He walked me though the entire ceremony and explained every aspect of it thoroughly. If it weren't for him I wouldn't have been able to design my programs in a timely manner! The music flowed seamlessly during the ceremony. It was absolute perfection! Playing during cocktail hour was the icing on the cake. It was exactly what was needed! The guests loved it and I received lots of positive feedback. The fact that they play current music was incredible. I cannot say enough! Any bride who books them will not be disappointed! Thank you again LaCorda!

Having a string trio play at our wedding was an absolute must and we couldn't be happier that we found La Corda. George had such great suggestions and advice which made planning the music so simple. He also made a recommendation for a vocalist for our responsorial psalms which took a huge stress off of our to-do list. The music at our ceremony was absolutely breathtaking. I will never forget how it felt to be standing at the alter as they played. It was magical and I can't thank La Corda and George enough for making that moment so special.

"I just wanted to express our sincerest thanks for your contribution to our daughter's wedding celebration. The music you provided was beautiful and helped make our daughter's wedding very special. We could not have been happier. My only regret is that I became so involved with so many things that evening that I did not get the chance to speak with the musicians to personally express my appreciation before they left. Please convey to them our sincerest thanks. I will without reservation recommend your services to everyone I encounter who might be looking to engage musicians of exceptional talent and professionalism."

We hired a trio from La Corda for our wedding in Kellogg Park on 18 Sept after having another group back out on us about three weeks before our wedding. George, and his group were professional and the quality of the music was outstanding. I am a musician myself, and have worked with many musicians, and not only would I recommend them, but would not hesitate hiring them again. LaCorda made our day even more special.

I had the string quartet for my ceremony and cocktail hour and they were wonderful!! So many guests came up to me and my parents and commented on how beautiful it was and how much the gorgeous music added to the wedding. George was great to work with; he was very flexible and accommodating. I had two singers perform a song that had to be changed to a different key and George did the extra work to make that possible. They also came early to practice with my singers before the ceremony so that everything would go smoothly. I'm very, very happy with the level of professionalism and incredible talent!

I had a duet play for my outdoor afternoon wedding and they were amazing! It was so worth it to hire real musicians as opposed to playing music through a stereo and speakers. It just added that extra special touch and it sounded absolutely beautiful. The gentleman, George, who runs the show is also very pleasant and easy to work with. Everyone here has a ton of experience and they don't hire otherwise. You have to be a top notch musician to play for La Corda! Thank you, La Corda!

If I had to credit the perfection of my wedding ceremony to something (other than my closest friend singing), La Corda would be it. I hired the String Trio for my wedding, and they were phenomenol.

Now trust me on this one when I say that I shopped around for my ceremony musicians. I contacted every professional string quartet in the lower peninsula of Michigan, and I even looked at student musicians at a renowned University (as so many wedding guides suggested.) One thing I discovered: it is hard to find good talent. And then I came across La Corda.

What I heard on their website is exactly what I got. (I totally recommend asking for George, he is the best!!!) They had a lot of music to choose from (just about every wedding song you can imagine). George had also done a lot of Catholic weddings, so he knew every part of the Catholic mass. He actually walked me through all of the music for the ceremony (including the psalms, Ave Maria, responses...) They also played along with the church organist for the Bridal March and it really seemed as if they had been playing together for years!

I also had a singer for the ceremony, and George came earlier to the ceremony so that she could practice the songs with the String Trio. La Corda played not just the prelude music and the processionals and recessionals, but all of the Catholic music too. They also learned new songs that were not part of their repertoire. How many string ensembles do that? Not very many, I can tell you that.

La Corda was a little bit more than other string ensembles, but please trust me when I say you get professionalism and talent. The ceremony can hit or miss with guests, and everyone has told me my ceremony was the most beautiful they had ever been too (I understand most would say that to the bride, but I have some pretty truthful friends.) My word of advice: don't skimp on the ceremony music... it really does set the atmosphere.

I was extremely pleased with La Caorda's services. I had a trio at the ceremony and a different trio at our evening reception. The wide range of music was great and I was pleased that it wasn't only classical. They were well dressed, punctual and friendly. In fact, they allowed me to play with them, forming a quartet, and were very patient with me during the two songs I played. George (the leader) is fantastic and played a solo for my husband and I right at the head table. That was a nice, romantic surprise. Highly recommend!

They might have been a little expensive but I did not shop around at all. The provided me with a huge list of music to choose from and I was easily able to pick out my ceremony music from the songs in their songbook. They also provided an hour's worth of cocktail music that was well received by my guests.

La Corda was punctual and responded to all of our emails and the music was beautiful. However, instead of speaking with the on-site liaison, I (the bride) was approached about changing the location of their tent when I first got there for the twenty minute ceremony. Then, most of my guests commented on how a member of the quartet was disruptively gesturing to the organizer to send people down the isle. It was a small ceremony so it was noticeable. It didn't ruin my day, but it was a little upsetting and I would have liked a bit more professionalism.
