We had a Terra Vista Strings string duo play at our wedding at Chapel Dulcinea. The bus was late dropping off half the guests, so there was more focus on their pre-wedding performance than we had planned. They rose to the occasion and I got great feedback from guests. In planning, they were very responsive and professional and helped us pick out songs that ended up working perfectly. We literally could not have asked for more.

I worked with Terra Vista Strings to provide music for my wedding for an outdoor ceremony on a ranch in April 2014. I was extremely pleased with everything they did, from the planning to the performance on the day of the wedding. They employ wonderful musicians and can basically play ANYTHING, even special requests and all kinds of classical and contemporary music! Just ask! Anthony, the owner, was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. He is very attentive and was helpful in terms of choosing music pieces and advising about the ceremony. I planned everything long distance and he was very easy to correspond with via email and phone. They are also very flexible and willing to work with you on anything! Their rates are also extremely affordable and their talent is superb. It was exactly what I wanted for my ceremony music and I am so happy to have had them as a part of my wedding! I would definitely recommend them and would hire them again!

I have nothing but positive things to say about Terra Vista. They played all of my (non-traditional) song requests, Anthony put together a beautiful arrangement of Eight Days a Week for our recessional, and he was very accommodating at letting my cousin, who is a professional musician, play with the duo we hired. The music was gorgeous and the service was exceptional! I was kind of late in the process in hiring them, but I felt that I was prioritized and that they really did everything to make my wedding music perfect. I highly recommend them, especially since most of the musicians also play with the Austin Symphony!

My husband, Brian, and I got married on March 22nd at Kindred Oaks in Georgetown, Texas. I am an opera singer, so I had a long list of music that I wanted included in my wedding ceremony. I went to college with the owner, Anthony Chen, and I knew many of the players also played with Austin Lyric Opera and Austin Symphony Orchestra. Anthony is so nice and easy to work with. He had great suggestions for the parts of the ceremony I hadn’t thought of and he even arranged a few songs specifically to be played with singers. They played leading up to the ceremony, during the ceremony, and into cocktail hour. I got so many comments on all the beautiful music and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Anthony also has a list of many “non-traditional” songs that he has arranged for his quartet, many of them are fun and lighthearted. If you want an awesome string quartet for your wedding, Terra Vista is definitely one of the best around the Austin/San Antonio area!

These guys were awesome! They were extremely professional, and they were so easy to work with! My wedding was not in Austin, and they still came to my location, which was also outdoors. They have a great selection of music to choose from, and you can pick how many musicians you want based on price. This was great for me since I was on a budget. They were also extremely low maintenance (they set up, performed, everything without me having to give directions the day of), and that was fabulous since I was extrememly busy that day. They are fantastic! Get them for your wedding!

Fantastic experience
Working with Anthony was a true pleasure and the music he and his group provided at our October, 2013, wedding was fantastic. We wanted a mix of traditional and contemporary music and Terra Vista ably provided just what we wanted. The group sounded great, looked appropriate and professional, and fulfilled--no, exceeded our expectations. The music pleased all ages--my late 40's friend played me his iPhone recording of the music weeks later and a friend's 13 year old, impressed, said "Wow! They're planing a Cold Play song! A good Cold Play song!"
Anthony will help you select music and he even gave us good tips about when to start the music and how long/when they should play. Over-all great and I will use Terra Vista Strings again.

I cannot stop thinking about how amazing my wedding music was because of Terra Vista Strings! My husband and I are both musicians so we have a whole lot of musicians, producers and label owners as our wedding guests and the string quartet blew them all away. I won't be surprised if they get signed by some if not all of our friends! From the get-go, Anthony was just so helpful and very responsive to my emails and requests. The ceremony was flawless, they did my cocktail hour too and my reception and I would do it all over again just to hear them play! During the reception, I had to stop dinner and watch and listen to them, mind blowing!

I would rate Terra Vista Strings 5 stars on professionalism and ethics alone. Anthony is incredibly responsive and provides helpful guidance with respect to musician or arrangement selection. I also found them to be competitively priced compared to other vendors in the Austin area. They were a classy addition to our Cocktail Hour.

Anthony, with Terra Vista Strings, is the utmost professional. He met with us several times and provided guidance on all of our musical selections. We wanted the music to be a reflection of us as a couple and therefore had a mix of modern and traditional music. On the day of our wedding it rained and the musicians stayed as long as they could in order to not be late to their next booking. We really appreciated how flexible they were. Not to mention everyone raved about the music during the ceremony!

Terra Vista Strings played for our daughter's wedding ceremony (9/28/13) and for part of our cocktail hour. They were wonderful, and their sound was so rich and full. They were so helpful and easy to deal with, and so professional. They were willing to learn new music, though it wasn't necessary for us, and to help the bride and groom with the planning and suggestion of some pieces we weren't familiar with.

Thanks to the whole group (we used the quartet) who added such beauty and artistry to the bride and groom's special day! We highly recommend them for any event...their extensive repertoire of modern and classical pieces makes them a great choice for any kind of party.

Anthony and his team helped make our ceremony so special. We originally were looking to have UT musicians play but they cancelled/decided they weren't available and so we had to find new musicians within 2 weeks of our wedding. I did quick research and found Anthony and he was so nice and accommodating in such a small amount of time to prepare. He called and we worked out all the details quickly and seamlessly. And even when it rained on the wedding day, they didn't skip a beat and were very flexible to move onto the covered porch. They had all the music my husband and I wanted played and they sounded amazing. I very much appreciate the great service and being apart of our wedding.

Terra Vista Strings played my prelude and ceremony music at my wedding at Vintage Villas in September 2013. They did a fabulous job! Anthony (owner of Terra Vista Strings) is a great friend of mine. I am a classical musician myself. That being said, I can vouch for Anthony in saying he is one of the most caring and professional people I have ever worked with. I have collaborated with Terra Vista from both sides-- I perform with them, and I had them play at my own wedding. They will never disappoint you!! I am so happy they played at my wedding, Anthony made sure that it was catered to exactly what me and my husband (who is also a classical musician) wanted. I would recommend Terra Vista Strings to all my friends and family.

We selected Terra Vista Strings for our wedding and we could not have been happier! We selected the string quartet option, and we had Anthony and his team play some classical selections during the ceremony and some modern selections during the cocktail hour. They even learned some new songs for us! All of their music was awesome and we're so happy that we chose them! They're easy to work with as well and we highly recommend them!

I received many compliments from guests on the music Terra Vista Strings provided for my ceremony. The string duo sounded beautiful. Anthony was wonderful to work with. He met with me to discuss music selections, since I was looking for some nontraditional alternatives for my processional and recessional. I also really appreciated the reminder emails, quick responses and ease of payment, all very important to a stressed out bride!

Terra Vista Strings did a wonderful job at our ceremony and cocktail hour. Anthony was great to work with...I had a few changes from the time of booking to the day of the wedding and he handled them all with ease. All of the musicians arrived early and were well prepared for the guests before arrival. The music was beautiful. Very happy with Terra Vista Strings!

Terra Vista Strings were not only extremely prompt with their communication but they played beautifully! I was almost in tears listening to the music playing while waiting to walk down the aisle. They have tons of options for songs which helped make my ceremony unique. Every email I sent with questions was followed by a response within 24 hours. They were wonderful to work with and I would recommend them to everyone!

My husband and I booked a string trio through Terra Vista Strings for our May wedding. We worked with Anthony Chen, the owner of the company. He worked with us for a few months prior to our wedding to help us decide on our song choices. Terra Vista Strings has such a large selection of music to choose from. You can request anything from Beethoven to Willie Nelson to Michael Jackson. It was really hard for us to choose. We had so many songs we wanted played and Anthony found a way to fit all of our choices into our ceremony.

Terra Vista Strings stands out for many reasons. They have great prices. They are very punctual and always respond within 24 hours. And their music... I can't say enough about how beautifully Anthony and the other musicians played at our wedding.

Other than the music, what I love most about Terra Vista Strings is that they make it so easy for the bride to focus on the most important thing, her wedding. The music was taken care of so far in advance that I didn't even have to think about it again until I heard it on my wedding day. If I ever plan another event where I need musicians to play, I will absolutely return to Terra Vista Strings!

Many compliments about them as the day went on. I had a few special request songs and they were flexible and accomodating. The owner called and went over the list and schedule with me multiple times which made me feel confident that they knew what to do and would come through. They were the most affordable group we found all over Austin and were great to work with.

TV strings was the highlight of my cocktail hour as well as the ceremony (other than marrying my husband)... Anthony & the other two musicians did an AMAZING job with all of the music... He was courteous, quick to respond to any inquiries and flexible when it came to the timing... It was absolute perfection!

We met with Anthony about 6 months before the wedding, and couldn't say no. We went with the String Trio, and requested 2 songs for the ceremony: Portuguese Love Theme (from Love Actually) and Married Life (from Up). They absolutely nailed both songs perfectly and beautifully.

They played our cocktail hour too and were magnificent with each arrangement they put out for us.

Anthony also met with us a few days before and supplied MIDI files of the arrangements for the processional and recessional requests so that we'd have an idea of what they would sound like, and to use for the rehearsal.

They are amazingly talented!

A wedding gift to my niece, who got married in a vineyard outside of Austin. She and her fiance selected Terravista, and it was a wonderful choice. I booked the string trio, and they played everything the couple wanted, from classical to classic rock (they also played for the cocktail party before the reception), and played it all beautifully. To quote my niece: "I cannot tell you how many compliments I have received regarding the string trio; even our wedding coordinator was highly impressed! I have had quite a few people say that was one of the nicest features of our wedding." You can't go wrong with Anthony and his colleagues!

It was a pleasure working with Anthony and the Terra Vista Strings! The quality of musicianship and professionalism was very high. They played the songs we asked for and they even moved to our new venue with only 4 days notice! Addionally, they made the song I played for my new bride incredibly special by accompanying me while I belted out, Your Song! Only thing I could have asked for was just a little more communication related to the receiving of my rough draft prior to making it happen. I would hire these folks all day long for such a special occasion! You should,too!
