"They were great. Wonderful music, professionally attired, arrived early. We highly recommend them."
- Anne K.
Wedding Ceremony in Agoura Hills, CA on 06/30/2012
"I hired International Strings solely based on the reviews on gigmaster and they did not disappoint! They were highly professional (on time, looked the part, great email communication prior to the event) and played beautifully at my outdoor wedding in June of 2012. They even learned a special song that I want to walk down the aisle too. Several people commented on how great they were including friends of mine who are musicians. I picked all the songs I wanted for my ceremony but left the rest of the time (cocktail hour) to them by saying basically "keep it upbeat" and again they did a great job. I would not hesitate to recommend them or hire them again. "
- Hayley G.
Wedding Cocktail Hour in San Diego, CA on 12/02/2012
"Our overall experience with International Strings was excellent! We requested that they play classical music for the first half of the contract, and for the seond helf to play a combination of contemporary pop hits. They rose to the occassion! Their professionalism was wonderful, the players met all of our needs, and most importantly, the music was amazing. Guests were very complimentary as well. I would definitely hire International Strings again, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a group that will deliver an extra element of class to their event."
- Allison D.

- Christine W.
Wedding Ceremony in San Martin, CA on 09/27/2011
"This group was a pleasure to work with and we were extremely satisfied with their overall performance for our wedding and reception. They learned a new song for our wedding and played it just perfectly! They were professional in every way. They provided the perfect musical portion of the entire event for us. They have such a large and varied musical catalogue that they played perfect music at each phase of the event. I would definitely recommend them to others and would also use them again! Thanks so much for helping to make our wedding a dream come true!
Rick and Amy Brooks"

Wedding Ceremony in Irvine, CA on 04/23/2011
"I had the greatest experience working with International Strings for our wedding; they're amazing, talented, professional & so easy to work with - even though they were hired with only 2 weeks notice! They even seamlessly handled a special saxophone request for us with such style that I honestly was blown away. We've received so many compliments from our guests, & even our wedding coordinator (w/12 years of experience) was impressed enough to pull me from our photo session just to see & hear how fantastic they were. We truly and HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM for all performance types. If we could get married again just to hear them play, we would do it in a heart beat!! "
- J. R.
Wedding Reception in San Diego, CA on 04/17/2010
"International Strings did an excellent job. I needed a band that could play some typical ceremony music (Canon in D, Wedding March, etc.) and then seamlessly move to a jazz band for the reception. I was particularly concerned that the jazz portion not sound like elevator music with easy listening versions of "yesterday" or Bon Jovi.
International Strings were spot on. Very classy three piece sting for the ceremony turned into a 5 piece jazz band that everybody raved about."

- Jeremy R.
Private Party in Malibu, CA on 01/26/2008
"The string trio was fantastic. I booked them based on
online samples and when I heard them playing at our
party I knew I made the right choice. They really went
above and beyond our expectations. Everything was
extremely professional. Many guests complimented their
talent and repertoire (from classical to
contemporary). We are very happy with their
performance and will not hesitate to recommend the
International String Trio for any event"
- Joey F.
Anniversary Party in Pasadena, CA on 02/03/2008
