Sarah Marsh created the classical musician network, Symphony Sounds, while she was studying cello performance at DePaul University's School of Music amongst members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Symphony Sounds ensembles and musicians have performed all over the country and world to critical acclaim. Most notably, Symphony Center of Chicago with Yo-Yo Ma, Carnegie Hall for a live appearance, The Art Institute for private fundraisers, The United Center for the Chicago Bulls, & The Allstate Arena.

We hired a string trio from Symphony Sounds to play at our ceremony. We found them on the Internet and then set up a meeting with Sarah Marsh, the founder. She is very sweet and gave us a very detailed information packet as well as a demo CD. They have a very extensive repertoire but will also play songs that are not in their repertoire -- in our case, we wanted them to play a special hymn and provided them with some sheet music for it. The trio played it beautifully. They were also very prompt and arrived at the chapel very eary to set up, tune, and warm up. Symphony Sounds has several forms that make it very easy to plan your ceremony music. We made our selections and they executed them all very well -- we were very satisfied and would definitely hire them again!

We used a string quartet from Symphony Sounds for our outdoor wedding ceremony in August. Sarah was very helpful with song selection, she was responsive to all our questions, and she answered emails in a timely fashion. The music during the ceremony was lovely, we were very happy with our selections – we would definitely use them again, or recommend them to anyone looking for a string quartet.

I hired Symphony Sounds because I wanted my ceremony music to reflect the spiritual aspect of the wedding--and I was not disappointed!!! Symphony Sounds was great from the planning stages to the execution. Sarah Marsh was wonderful and was so organized that it was so easy planning the music. I, like most brides, have a limited budget but wanted my ceremony music to add elegance and solemnity to my catholic wedding. I am so grateful for Symphony Sounds because the trio did a fantastic job. They also performed at the reception and I am very pleased with their service. I think that if you want professionals to perform at your ceremony, Symphony Sounds is worth it. The cost is higher compared with amateur musicians, but for the peace of mind that your musicians will perform well, Symphony Sounds is worth it. I highly recommend Sarah and her group.
