"Con Brio Trio was great - they were friendly and accommodating. We had a few songs we wanted them to play for our wedding ceremony which were not in their usual repertoire, and they made great arrangements of the songs. They were a perfect combination of fun and classy. "
- Allison C.
in Watertown, MA
"Con Brio were incredibly professional and accommodating. They were able to arrange very specific pieces that I'd requested — I was impressed with their level of communication, and with their skill with the arrangements. I'd recommend them in a heartbeat."
- Kristen R.
in Charlestown, RI
"The Con Brio Trio not only put on a fantastic performance during my ceremony and cocktail hour, but their leader, Bria, was incredibly easy to work with. I had the flute, violin, and guitar trio and the music was up to my standards, and both myself and my now husband are musicians ourselves so our standards were high. They played a mix of classical and Celtic music and really went along with the "feel" of my wedding. I highly recommend this group!!"
- Lauren B.
in Dover, NH
"We could not have been happier with this group of talented individuals. They were very professional yet fit into the casual atmosphere of our venue. Their music helped to make this wedding as special as it was. Lots of people commented on how delightful the atmosphere was with their music all around us. We highly recommend them. Bria was extremely accessible and easy to work with. We had some special classical pieces we wanted; some Celtic pieces, etc and they went along with all of it and performed them beautifully! Will use them again if there is ever the opportunity! They will fit into any venue - casual, elegant, formal. Thanks so much!

"Everything in previous reviews of the Trio is true! I was so grateful for the professionalism Bria Schecker demonstrated, from first phone call, to her thank you/congrats email to me following our wedding. It's so much appreciated when a vendor replies and corresponds so promptly, and Bria did just that. She was always available on email and met our every question/request with reassurance. Even before we hired the trio, I was so impressed with their collective expertise. Talent is in no short supply among this group! They played beautifully, and were so pleasant and friendly with us and guests. Most notably they learned our favorite song and it sounded truly amazing!"
- Chantal S.
in West Dover, VT
"Words cannot say what a wonderful touch Bria and Brad brought to our outdoor wedding in Vermont. They both are so talented, professional, and personable ! Bria reached out to me well in advance to personalize our ceremony which made me feel that she "had it all covered"...something every bride needs weeks before the wedding : ) Thanks Bria & Brad and Good Luck to you both !"
- Dana M.
in Newport, RI
"The music they played during our ceremony was beautiful and made the event that much more special. Bria was helpful with all of our questions, while Brad did an amazing job creating classical versions of our favorite songs. I also loved that Brad sent Elex and I full versions of the songs we requested prior to the day of; it was a great taste of what we’d hear during the ceremony, and it is a great memento from the day."
