We would highly recommend Ptarmigan for several reasons. First, they were pleasant to work with. Second, they were every bit as professional as we would have hoped for. Last, they impressed us with a custom arrangement of a piece by Ludovico Einaudi and charged, what seemed to us, an impossibly low premium for this service. They took it from piano to string quartet and it sounded every bit as magical as we imagined.

Vicki and the other musicians were excellent and their work profound! They were dedicated to my wedding and did everything to make sure it was a smooth event. They even took time to attend my rehearsal which was a far drive from where they lived to make sure they knew the right moments to play for a catholic wedding. If you are not catholic a nuptial mass can be confusing. They also took the time to create a script to ensure they played everything on que. My husband and I were so fortunate to have such professional, dedicated, and talented musicians for our wedding day. There music was excellent and they sounded great. All of our family and friends complimented how great the music was for our wedding. I would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone!

Vicki was an absolute delight to work with! I live in NJ & was planning my daughter's Wedding in CO, so we basically did everything over the phone. The Quartet played during the Ceremony + the Cocktail Hour and absolutely elevated the level of the affair. They were also very accommodating re playing all of my requests. Many of the Guests commented to me on how much they enjoyed the Quartet's music. I couldn't have been more pleased and would certainly recommend them to anyone who would like to add a touch of class to their affair.
