RIBBONS and STRINGS ENSEMBLES consist of THREE FABULOUS STRING ENSEMBLES; RAZUMOVSKY STRING QUARTET, TRIAD STRING TRIO, and DEBONAIR STRING DUO!
IT REALLY IS ALL ABOUT YOU - AND THE MUSIC TOO! Elegant and exquisite STRING MUSIC and equally elegant RIBBONS. We are the WEDDING MUSICIANS EXTRAORDINAIRE! Visit our website and see why.


RAZUMOVSKY STRING QUARTET is the standard string quartet with TWO violins, ONE viola, and ONE cello. TRIAD STRING TRIO has three different possible combinations of instruments (your choice of course); 1) ONE violin, ONE viola, and ONE cello; 2) TWO violins and ONE cello; and 3) TWO violins and ONE viola. Combinations 1 and 2 may be employed within the SAME performance because I play the viola and violin and therefore I am able to switch back and forth, no problem. DEBONAIR STRING DUO consists of any two of the following instruments: TWO violin, TWO violas, ONE cello.
We offer 1) traditional wedding music; 2) non-traditional; 3) a combination of traditional and non-traditional; and/or 4) theme weddings such as a royalty theme, Renaissance theme etc. Just let us know what you have in mind. You will notice that we have lots of Mozart, Beethoven etc., as you would expect for string ensembles, but we also have Broadway tunes, Celtic music, movie music, dance and ragtime including waltzes, folk music, and rock including Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. Of course, we have all of the great wedding music you could possibly want! You have the music YOU want when you hire us. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me to have your questions answered and to talk about your wedding and its music. I will help you plan the music as much or as little as you’d like me to. We offer IN PERSON listening sessions to help you choose your music. YOUR MUSIC, YOUR WAY? Hire us! Read less

What music genre does your band play?
Acoustic, Classic Rock, Classical, Dance, Folk, Jazz, Oldies, Pop, Rock, Strings
Do you have liability insurance?
No
What is your band's usual attire?
Black formal attire. We usually wear very dressy black slacks/skirts and blouses. The fabric is usually black silk/satin or black velvet. We will wear less formal attire if the client wishes that.
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
Yes, we have couple's evenings. You can come and listen in a friendly and casual atmosphere in which we play for you and help you choose music for your wedding. We also offer a CD in addition to our on line sound files. See out site.
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
Of course, anytime. I am a professional music arranger so you may count on a good arrangement of the song(s) you want.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
1/2 hour.
How much space do you usually require?
10 - 14 feet by 10 - 14 feet roughly, depending on which ensemble you hire. We can also make it work with a similar amount of total square feet but in a rectangle rather than a square.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
We have one. The client decides whether we have it with us or not. Usually not at weddings, usually at fund raisers.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We offer an extra touch of elegance besides our music. You let us know your wedding colors, and we have our instruments decorated to match with beautiful ribbons. It makes your wedding pictures even more fun since we match with your color scheme.
Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
No, not unless you want us to. We have introduced special songs, like couple's first dance etc., and we have introduced the couple and wedding party before, but generally not between each song.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Play dance music and remind them. Many of our performances are not for dancing, but for dinner or ceremonies, cocktail hours.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
It depends on the length of the performance, the distance from Denver/Boulder and if we are playing for the dinner or not. Let's talk.
Do you play recorded music during your break?
No, our breaks are not that long.
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
We have alternate musicians who know the repertoire so this is not a problem.
What is your overtime rate?
Our rates are simply so much per the first hour and then the rate is by the 1/4 hour after that. See price lists.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
We do not charge for travel expenses if the wedding is within the Boulder/Denver metro area. The cost for travel out of these areas depends on where and the time of year. Let's talk about it. It also depends on which group you hire. We only charge for performances OUT of the Denver/Boulder metro area.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Usually $300.

Ribbons and Strings Ensembles did an excellent job during our ceremony-they provided an ample number of song choices and offered to learn a couple too if we had songs in mind that were not already on their list. They were always responsive to emails and correspondance, showed up early, and performed excellently. We had several guests comment on how good they sounded. Highly recommended!

Our daughter was recently married in Louisville, Colorado. One of the best decisions we made was to have Ribbons & Strings play at both the wedding and reception. Their music is exceptionally lovely and was one of the most beautiful elements of the wedding.
Beyond that, this group has a large repertoire and is extremely professional and flexible. They are absolutely great to work with!
This was my first experience planning a wedding and they were extremely helpful. I don’t know a lot about music, but they sure do! They really put my mind at ease, so I could focus on other things. I wouldn’t want to do another wedding without them.
Thank you Ribbons & Strings for being part of our families big day!

The Razumovsky String Quartet performed for our ceremony and cocktail hour. It was very important to us to have non-traditional music at our wedding and and they worked with us to make sure we got excactly what we wanted. Deb even arranged two new songs for our ceremony. They were wonderful during our ceremony! We did not get to hear them at all during cocktail hour because we were taking photos, but we received rave reviews from all of our guests! Highly recommended!

I highly recommend Deb Corisis and the String Trio--they were wonderful to work with! They were very professional, responsive and just fun to work with.

We picked out every song for our ceremony a month in advance, and they spent an evening playing samples for us and another couple. They make good suggestions, and will also play anything you want! They played beautifully at our wedding and were able to spontaneously keep playing music when something ran long or there was an unexpected delay in the ceremony.

They also sent us ribbons and samples of the sheet music they used at our wedding for our scrapbook, which was very special.

I definitely recommend Ribbons and Strings Ensembles and would use them again.

I always remeber the songs and quality of the sound Razumovsky String Quartet and Triad String Trio brought to my wedding. The band members coordinated coherently with each other and I've never heard a song so harmonious. The songs suit everyone's taste. The trio were so professional, on hearing those beautiful melodies, I was drawn back to the old memories when we were courting. They also played fast beat songs that everyone danced beautifully.
