Suzanne of Empire Strings was very easy to work with and clearly loves the classical music that she and the other members of the quartet perform. She was very professional, and met with us at length for a consultation, and also attended our rehearsal. Both my husband and I regret that we weren't able to enjoy more of their music, but we did love the little we were able to hear during the processionals. The only downside was the cost: this was definitely a splurge item for us!
Working with them long distance was a little hard, but in the end the music was absolutely beautiful. Even though we only expected them to play for the ceremony (which took about 30 min) they stayed and played the full hour we paid for.
Wonderful music; great personalities during my visit to their practice to hear them (while I was deciding and interviewing ceremony musicians). Performed beautifully at our outdoor wedding; added to the atmosphere of the wedding without taking any of the attention off of the ceremony. Play a variety of music, and "up" to performing requests! A little bit more than we wanted to pay, but a good value as compared to other live ceremony musicians in the Albuquerque area.
