My husband and I hired Silhouette Strings to play at our recent wedding ceremony. Yuriy was very helpful in helping us choose ceremony music, and was flexible to accommodate our requests. We had never heard them play, or even met them, in person, but the violin/cello duo that played our ceremony music was absolutely wonderful. They sounded terrific! Their performance exceeded our expectations. Thank you, Silhouette Strings!

Silhouette Strings was a great addition to our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Our guests liked the wide variety of songs they played during cocktail hour. They sounded great, and Yuriy was very flexible and nice to work with.

We had the trio play for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour at the zoo. The trio stayed professional even when a peacock tried to play along with them all throughout the ceremony :) Yuriy was extremely flexible in meeting us a few days prior to the wedding to set my mind at ease with those last minute details and always responded to my e-mails in a timely matter. They were great, I would recommend them to anyone!

We used Silhouette Strings for the ceremony and the cocktail hour. We got a trio to save a little bit of money, and honestly, I thought it was fine for our space. They were really accommodating to learn a piece that they don't usually play for the processional. And it sounded fantastic! I even went out to see them when they were playing at a local market so I could hear how the song sounded. Overall, they did a great job with the music and I would recommend them! They played both classical and contemporary. The one thing I would change is I probably wouldn't have used them in the cocktail hour because the room was large and people were talking - it was hard for them to play loud enough for everyone to hear.

As the bride, I didn't hear as much music as I would have liked during the ceremony but they sounded great. They were professional and arrived on time.

Yuriy was helpful via email and I thought his prices were great too!

We lost our string quartet last minute and they were able to step in on short notice. I really appreciated that. They played well, but weren't so great with the song I picked to walk down the aisle to. It was one on their list, but they struggled with it a bit. Other than that, they were great.

Silhouette Strings played at our wedding ceremony and they were fantastic. Yuriy was so responsive and flexible to work with. A couple of my selections were somewhat out of the ordinary, but the musicians were able to learn the pieces and they sounded beautiful! Also, we have two friends who play the trumpet and Yuriy was cool about playing with them for the recessional. The music just really added to the ceremony and made it so special. I highly recommend this ensemble. They are very professional, friendly and a great value compared to some other ensembles in the city (but you won't be compromising on quality at all).
