I have hired Synchronicity Strings five times over the past 3 months for various events that I have produced throughout California. They are reliable, professional, and wickedly talented. No matter your audience, Synchronicity Strings will be able to entertain. I HIGHLY recommend Synchronicity Strings for your next event.

I got married this past weekend at Shakespeare Garden and commissioned Synchronicity Strings to perform during our ceremony. While Rachel manages her team, the trio that came out to perform was spectacular!

Rachel is a complete professional - we mainly communicated over email and finalized our plans over the phone a couple weeks before the wedding date. We had Rachel arrange 2 pieces for us (processional and recessional) and the trio was amazing when they performed it! She also has quite a list of songs already that you can choose from, so it was basically seamless!

I'd highly recommend Synchronicity Strings for your event; they sounded beautiful and guests were complimenting how great they sounded throughout the day!

I know that most people who look at this will be looking to hire Rachel and her wonderful team of musicians for some sort of an event. I approached Synchronicity Strings for something a little different. I composed a string quartet and wanted it recorded. They were fantastic. Rachel was a pleasure to work with and her group was so talented. I recommend them to anyone who may need strings for a recording session or live event. Rachel is an excellent arranger and will work with you until you are 100% satisfied. I am not good at writing reviews, so I will just copy and paste my "thank you" email to Rachel, so you get the idea of how happy I was with their services:

Hi Rachel,
I just wanted to say thank you for setting up today's session. The musicians were awesome. I could not have been happier with how it went. Other than a little technical difficulty on our end, it went perfectly. And they were a lot of fun too. I really appreciate the enthusiasm they put into the session. I realize that my music is nothing compared to the wonderful music they have had the privilege to play in their careers, so I appreciate that they were so down to earth and approached my music with an open mind. And we were also treated to the culinary skills of Keith too :) What a bonus!! I can now scratch "write a string quartet and record it" off my bucket list :) It may take a week or two before the editing is done. If you like, I will send you the finished product so you can hear it. I will be going back to Keith's home tomorrow night to record a quick vocal for a friend of his. Thanks again Rachel. I thanked the quartet as they were leaving today, but please thank them again for me. They were amazing.
Marty

Don't be surprised if I contact you guys for String Quartet No. 2. In a year or two.

Outstanding! We were absolutely delighted to have the beautiful music from the Synchronicity Trio at our wedding last month at the Jefferson Street Mansion in Benicia.

I first heard Synchronicity at a wedding as a wedding guest several years ago and knew that I would want them for my own wedding. Having live classical music at the ceremony and for the reception was just magical.

Highly recommended in every way! Thanks Rachael and Synchronicity!!

I hired Synchronicity Strings for ceremony music for my wedding in Millbrae. The music was beautiful! Better than I could have imagined. Rachel and her team put together two songs that they hadn't done before and they sounded wonderful!! She put together Dave Mathews- Crash into me- for the bridesmaids to walk down and Stevie Wonder- Sign, Sealed, Delivered as our walk out song. I walked down the aisle to Somewhere Over the Rainbow and they played it so beautifully- it brought tears to my eyes. They made the ceremony perfect! They were very professional and kind and I would recommend them to anyone. :)

Review for Rachel Turner Houk & Syncronicity Strings:

We recently had the pleasure of having Synchronicity Strings play at our wedding. The string quartet arrived on schedule, set up quickly and played a wide variety of songs prior to, during and at the dinner after our wedding. The music was perfect in the background allowing for conversations while still providing a very classy background for our guests. Synchronicity Strings played a wide variety of music including classical string music, Beatle and modern day music with a classy flare. Many folks commented to us how special the music was and how it added to the evening. Our wedding and dinner took place in the winery caves which presented an acoustics challenge that was handled perfectly by Rachael and Synchronicity Strings. We want to thank Rachael and Synchronicity Strings for making our wedding so special and we will look for opportunities to use them in the future.

Our wedding was being held on what seemed to be the busiest day in San Francisco. The Blue Angels were flying, America's Cup was going on, and the Giants were playing at home in the playoffs. Even with all that going on Synchronicity Strings showed up on time and looking great. We have received countless compliments on how great they were and how they really helped to pull the event together. They definitely set the tone for how the rest of the evening would play out. I highly recommend them!
