Jill and Musical Discovery were excellent!! Their string trio provided a touch of class to our wedding ceremony, and the music selections were stellar. We were able to walk down the aisle to a contemporary favorite by Death Cab for Cutie, and walk out to a song from one of our favorite video games. We couldn't be happier and Jill was very easy to work with. Overall, Musical Discovery was a splendid choice.

I knew that ceremony musicians were a must at my wedding and I'm so happy that I went with the best! Jill is super easy to work with and incredibly responsive! I wasn't too picky about the songs for the prelude and processional and leaned upon Jill for guidance on best selections and she did a great job at providing suggestions.

Her team of talented musicians were phenomenal and added to the fairy tale wedding.

musical discovery chamber players were recommended to us by the wonderful ladies of our wedding venue (the winfield inn -- also fantastic!!), and we were totally pleased!! jill was very communicative leading up to the wedding and provided us all the information we needed to plan the music for the service -- and was also great about letting us choose some more contemporary numbers for them to play during the cocktail hour. they practiced with our friend the singer in advance, and everything went totally smoothly. . . they even were flexible about playing "on the fly" when our priest accidentally switched up the order of the ceremony. i would recommend them for sure!!

We hired MDCP for our ceremony/cocktail hour music - it was perfect!! The string quartet played beautiful mix of contemporary and classical music. Jill was very helpful throughout the planning process. MDCP has a large selection of songs that they play- and they are even open to learning a new one if there is a song you have your heart set on! We were very happy with the selection and not did request anything new but it was nice to know that was an option. Everything went smoothly from the arrival, setup, timeline of music, etc. It's reassuring to know you won't have to worry about a single thing with this group- peace of mind on your wedding is priceless!! Musical Discovery Chamber Players are highly recommended!!!

Musical Discovery Chamber Players were recommended to me by my wedding coordinator as I live outside the Austin area and my daughter was being married in Dripping Springs in June 2013. While I did not have very much communication with them, they always responded promptly and were extremely easy to work with. They arrived at our wedding venue exactly when they said they would and started playing 30 minutes before the wedding. I was afraid I would miss the fullness of our church orchestra in Houston but they filled the chapel with the most beautiful and rich music! I wish I could do it all over again and I would certainly have the Musical Discovery Chamber Players be a part.

We had chosen the string trio for our wedding and I don't think we could have made a better decision. We kept on going back and forth between a quartet and a trio because some of the songs that we were wanting were normally played by a quartet, but we were constantly trying to cut back where we could. But when I reached out to Jill to see if these songs could be done with a smaller group, she showed zero concern... and she was right. The songs they played were all very, very special to my family and the trio played them so beautifully that there was not a dry eye among every family member. I just wish I could have sat in the chapel and heard them play from beginning til end! Any bride who is having trouble selecting your ceremony musicians, look no further. Musical Discovery Chamber Players are worth every penny, and more!

I worked with Jill Dalley and Musical Discovery to organize a string quartet for our outdoor wedding at Camp Lucy. She was extremely enthusiastic from the get go and totally open to learning the new songs I requested for a reasonable fee. At one point we thought we'd have to extend the hours they'd play due to some changes of plan and they were very flexible in that being possible. There are so many things going on that day that you just don't want to have to worry about anything going wrong or happening on time. The quartet was fabulous! Professional, energetic, and quality. It was pretty wonderful to hear our song selections being played on string and made for a very memorable walk down the aisle! I absolutely recommend them!

We had a small ceremony and we wanted something other than recorded music for the room. Jill was so easy to work with! We had a duo, violin and cello for an hour and it was more than worth every penny. Jill helped us with music selections, and after the ceremony I had several guests comment on how warm and lovely it was to have the live music. They were a dream to work with for a bride who planned everything with veyr little help. They showed up when they said they would, were very low maintenance, and did exactly what they promised!

My daughter (the bride) and I became acquainted with Musical Discovery Chamber Players at a Bridal show at Palmer Auditorium (Austin). Their repertoire was extensive and their musicality was mesmerizing. I appreciated that they provided suggestions to guide us in choosing appropriate selections for the seating of the families, bridesmaids processional, bridal processional and recessional, etc. We received many compliments from guests after the wedding about how beautiful and moving the music was. I could not have been happier with this group of professional musicians.

We are so happy that we found Jill and the Musical Discovery Chamber Players for our outdoor wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. The string duo was the perfect match for our Texas Hill Country Wedding. From the very beginning Jill was very easy to work with and always responded promptly to our emails and questions, which was very important, as we were planning our wedding from out of town. Jill took the time to meet with us prior to the wedding to discuss the flow and relaxed feel that we wanted for our ceremony and cocktail hour. From the beginning she had a list of songs and recommendations for music during guests arrival, procession, and recessional. It was also very helpful that she has posted YouTube videos of Musical Discovery Chamber Players playing many of the songs, so we could listen to each one and compare songs before selecting our music. On our wedding day Jill and her string duo partner arrived early to ensure proper set up, and played beautifully throughout the ceremony and cocktail hour. Their music provided a soft elegance to the beautiful Texas Hill Country views of our wedding venue and we couldn't be happier in our decision to book Musical Discovery Chamber Players.

The string duo was the perfect match for our Texas Hill Country Wedding. From the very beginning Jill was very easy to work with and always responded promptly to our emails and questions, which was very important, as we were planning our wedding from out of town. Jill took the time to meet with us prior to the wedding to discuss the flow and relaxed feel that we wanted for our ceremony and cocktail hour. From the beginning she had a list of songs and recommendations for music during guests arrival, procession, and recessional. It was also very helpful that she has posted YouTube videos of Musical Discovery Chamber Players playing many of the songs, so we could listen to each one and compare songs before selecting our music. On our wedding day Jill and her string duo partner arrived early to ensure proper set up, and played beautifully throughout the ceremony and cocktail hour. Their music provided a soft elegance to the beautiful Texas Hill Country views of our wedding venue and we couldn't be happier in our decision to book Musical Discovery Chamber Players. Read less

I used Musical Discovery for my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. They were wonderful. We used a string quartet because of the size of the venue. We were a little hesitant and not sure if we needed all 4 but it was recommended and we are glad we did. They were right about needing a larger group for the area we had. The price is based on the number of players so can change depending on how many you need. Our guests loved the playing while they were waiting for the ceremony. They also offered a wide variety of music for both ceremony and cocktail hour and can even do special pieces if you give them enough advanced notice. For the plaining stage I dealt with Jill and she was on of my most favorite vendors to work with. She was polite, honest, prompt in replying to all my questions and just a joy to interact with. She provided a range of music that we could pick from for both ceremony and cocktail hour and gave great suggestions for both. Probably the guest favorite moment was the groom/groomsmen walking down the aisle to the Imperial March. We also wanted a little of an Italian feel for the cocktail hour because of the venue and they were able to incorporate those songs with others that were very pleasing to everyone. The musicians were also very professional, dressed appropriately and were prompt.

Jill was so fantastic and easy to work with. She was VERY quick to respond to all of my emails and any questions that I had. Once you hand in your music, you don't have to worry about a single thing.. these professionals will take care of the rest and do such a great job! As I was in the bride's quarters at Camp Lucy waiting to enter the chapel, tears just came to my eyes as I heard the music play. So beautiful!

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Jill and Musical Discovery! We wanted a string quartet to play at our wedding ceremony in memory of my Nana, a beautiful violinist, and Jill made it more special than we could have hoped for. Jill was absolutely wonderful to work with - she answered all of our questions and even went out of her way to find a unique piece of music for my husband and me to exit to. Musical Discovery is so talented, they are such a pleasure to work with, and we HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!

I was insistent on a string quartet for our ceremony music. Walking down the aisle to Pachelbel's Canon in D has been something I've dreamed about since I was a little girl. Jill was such a pleasure to work with from start to finish as I was selecting our music for the ceremony. The sound was simply beautiful and the moment I heard the first chords start, I was absolute waterworks. Their wide range of options (we requested from Beauty and the Beast for pre-ceremony) from classical to contemporary was refreshing and gave me as more options than I could even comprehend. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a wide range of musical and instrument arrangements.

I emailed her 7 days before the wedding and Jill wrote up a contract had me sign and I sent the check by mail hoping that it would arrive in time for the wedding. I had a duo and all of our guests enjoyed the ceremony music. I just wish I could have heard more of it the way my guests did.

I really liked that they provided extensive YouTube videos showing examples of duo, trio, and quartet versions of songs, as well as demonstrating their versatility in switching from classical to the Beatles to pop. They played our ceremony (classical) and our cocktail hour (Beatles, pop, modern). They were very reasonably priced, easy to work with, prompt communication, and played well. I would highly recommend.

It turned out beautifully! I highly recommend them.

These four musicians are wonderful. They played from 30 minutes before the wedding through the cocktail hour. You can find many of their pieces on you tube and I highly highly recommend them if you are looking for a quartet to play during your ceremony. The only thing I wish was that we would have put them closer to the ceremony site or hooked them up with a microphone. Probably just putting them 5-8 feet closer would have been nice. They did a very nice job with Canon in D as well as our exit song, The Wedding March. Jill, the coordinator of the group, is very nice and so easy to work with. The first time she played Canon in D for my parents was when we met them at a bridal show, and I knew right away that we were about to hand them a check to guarantee our spot on their calendar.

The Musical Discovery Chamber Players helped make our wedding day that much more special! When we contacted them they were very helpful in the options we had whether it be a string quartet or a string duo there are many combinations to choose from. Planning our ceremony and picking music selections was made easy by the Musical Discovery Chamber Players with their song list and samples on their website. After our ceremony I had many guests approach me and say what a great job they did playing at our ceremony. I was very pleased and would recommend them to all brides! Thanks again for making our wedding flow so great with your music.

I had a lot of trouble with some of the vendors for my wedding - I had actually put a deposit down on another orchestra group that took my money and ran off with it. I contacted the Chamber Players very last minute and Jill was absolutely wonderful to work with. One of the very few vendors I dealt with that was super responsive, put me at ease, and actually sounded interested and excited for my big day. They played exactly the music I had in mind and it couldn't have been more perfect. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!

She is extremely professional, and it made the vibe of our ceremony so romantic! We chose a string duet, as that fit our budget best, and it was lovely.

Just breathtaking!!!  When I walked through those church doors and heard the strings, I was blown away.  Brian and I received so many compliments on our musicians and song selections. And the extra effort the quartet made in cooperating with a longer than expected homily was above and beyond the call of duty!  Having the Musical Discovery quartet in our wedding truly made the Mass special and ever so sensory.  

If it was possible to rank Jill and MDCP higher than a 5 out of 5 on this site, WE WOULD!!! 10 gold stars!!! And please check out their affordability! Better than so many other pricier quartets in Austin! Ms. Jill even sent US a thank you nite after the wedding thanking US for allowing them to celebrate our day! Professional and gracious!!!

Thank you for the art and friendship of Musical Discovery Chamber Players !

We had a great experience with Musical Discovery and Jill Dalley. The music I did hear was beautifully done. We had a violin, viola and trumpet and it was lovely. It added the right mood to our wedding. Jill was so easy to work with getting the music just right for our ceremony. I asked my family their thoughts on the music (since I didn't hear all of it), and they said it was perfect. I couldn't be happier with them!

Musical Discovery Chamber Players was able to work with my budget to provide exactly what we needed for our ceremony and reception! Jill helped me with the instrument and music selections, as I was clueless, and I was really happy to have the help.

Can't say enough good things about the Musical Discovery Chamber Players! Jill always responded promptly to e-mails and was extremely helpful with suggestions for the music. They showed up on time, looked professional, and we got several compliments from our guests on how much they enjoyed the music. I can assure you that you won't be disappointed and this will be the one aspect of your wedding that won't give you a headache!

Musical Discovery plays beautifully, and for a great price. They have a good selection of contemporary music and are willing to learn new pieces given enough notice. Jill is fantastic and helpful!

It was a financial stretch to have strings at my wedding, but from what I have heard, it was well worth it! I vaguely remember the beautiful music helping me float down the aisle- so many things during my wedding are a blur, but I know it was beautiful. My video will be confirmation of what my guests said about it and what I remember. Well worth the $ and Jill was wonderful to work with, very sweet and professional!

The Chamber Players were fabulous! They were quick to respond to emails, and were willing to play hymns we wanted that were outside their typical repertoire. On the wedding day, they arrived right on time with everything they needed. The ceremony went smoothly and the music was lovely. I definitely recommend these guys if you are getting married in the Austin area!

Jill was great to work with - quick to respond, offered good suggestions, and was honest and professional with her opinions. They created a wonderful arrangement of my daughter's special request song to walk down the aisle. I would definitely recommend Musical Discovery to add a touch of class to your event!

I had a quartet play during the half hour before the ceremony while my guest arrived and had wine and horduerves and then they played the ceremony.

They added a definent level of sophistication and style. Everyone loved the music.

They are very professional. You can pick how many musicians and what instruments, you can select all of the music or they can make recommendations. They are very attentive to your requests. They followed my timeline and music selections to a tee.

It was a little bit pricey; however, they really worked with me so that I could have what I wanted within my budget. It was worth the extra cost. In addition, any live music is going to cost more, that is just how it goes.

The Musical Discovery Chamber Players performed during the cocktail hour at our wedding reception and were a big hit. Per our requests, the set consisted entirely of (relatively) contemporary pieces (Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Elton John et al.) – all of which were a part of the great selection already available. Additionally, Jill & team learned a list of even more modern custom songs (Nirvana, Mumford & Sons, Death Cab For Cutie), which were received with a ton of smiles and we got a lot of (positive) comments.

Jill was very accommodating of our special requests both in song selection and the day-of and was always very courteous and professional in her correspondence. On top of the great experience, MDCP were by far and away the best value we found, while actually getting the music we wanted. We definitely recommend this group to others and look forward to the possibility of using them again.

I have mixed emotions about our experience with Musical Discovery Chamber Players. I originally heard the group play at our venue's open house, and hearing them play Canon in D was the first time that the reality of our upcoming wedding REALLY started to sink in. Since they were one of the venue's preferred vendors and I'd just heard them play beautifully, I was confident in hiring them. Leading up to our event, I was SO impressed with how professional and responsive Jill Dalley was about all our concerns and requests. There were truly no stupid questions to her; I asked about pricing on endless configurations of instruments and song requests, and she patiently and thoroughly responded to everything. Her group had an extensive song list from which to choose, and they offered arrangement services if you had a special request (for a price). We ultimately arrived at the perfect package for us - a string trio for the ceremony that would play personally selected songs from the list, including one special song that we asked to be arranged for us.

As the bride and groom, we actually didn't get to hear very much of what was played during the prelude and part of the processional. For part of this review, then, I must rely on input from my guests. Those with musical inclinations reported that there were many intonation problems and that you could tell which songs the group had played a lot and which weren't requested often. That makes me sad because I know some of those songs weren't very common (though they were on the group's song selection page), but that's what was supposed to make the ceremony personal and special. In effect, that means that the more personal the music was, the lower its quality was.

This inversion was most evident during the special unity candle song for which we paid an extra $50 to have arranged. We had them arrange 3 verses for us to give us flexibility in how long the song lasted. Since the unity candle lighting itself is very short, we had wanted to use the rest of the song as a reflection piece after the candle lighting, so we had arranged a signal for when we wanted the group to stop in case the reflection time became awkward for some reason. However, we had planned to listen and reflect through all three verses.

At the end of the first verse, the musicians messed up in a very significant way such that it was hard to overlook it and return to our reflective state of mind. Then, the second verse was not recognizable...I guess it was an interpretive statement on the song to maintain interest, but it was busy and not at all suitable to reflection. We gave our cue at that point to end based both on not liking the arrangement and on the previous disruption of the mistakes.

To be fair, I hadn't specifically explained to Jill that the song would be used for reflection, but I honestly hadn't imagined that the song could have been transformed into something that was so loud and unpretty. It's from a hymnal, after all :) And I had accepted the risk that I wouldn't have much control over the arrangement. The point to future brides, though, is that asking for a special arrangement of this group is probably unwise because 1) there's no way to hear it beforehand (though I didn't ask if there was...maybe there is?) and 2) it will be the song they've practiced the LEAST of anything in your wedding, so it's most likely to have mistakes amidst it. I wouldn't say this ruined the ceremony or anything; it just ruined a moment that would have otherwise been a highlight for me.

So, in conclusion, I appreciate that Jill was so easy to work with and had great intentions of making all my personalizations come to life, and the group was very professional and timely, but their attempts to be flexible were not well executed and somewhat embarrassing I think. I'd only recommend them if you want fairly standard wedding music...like Canon in D...
