My wife and I would highly recommend The Shaw Strings. When I first contacted Virginia Schawacker about performing at my daughter's wedding she made me feel at ease. She forwarded a DVD with a sample of their performances and recommended music selections. Whenever I spoke with her on the phone it was like talking with an old friend. On the day of the wedding she and her fellow musicians were at the church over an hour early, set up and ready to perform. Their performance was fantastic. Following the wedding many of our friends and family commented on how beautiful the cermony was and how the string quartet added that special touch. A job well done!!!!

Shaw Strings arrived at the event an hour late, without calling, and without a second violinist, which was not only unprofessional but also inconsiderate. I do not recommend them.

Shaw Strings’s Response:

Scott is a freshman at a music school in Boston and booked us within 10 days of the event. In fact there was so little time between the booking and the event I didn't get a deposit. Scott asked if he could sit in with us as our cellist and I agreed to let him play. Our second violinist got sick shortly before we left for the gig so we played with just the 3 of us. We arrived 45 minutes before the bride walked down the aisle. We played in a very tight space which barely worked for a trio and played 8 preludes, then the music for the parents to be seated and then the Canon in D for the bride and her bridal party. After the ceremony ended we played the Hornpipe from
