Wedding Ceremony in Mechanicsville, MD on 04/27/2013
"International Strings were a pleasure to work with. They are an incredibly talented group and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Our guests were blown away by them and our wedding would not have been the same without them! "
- Rachel L.
Private Party in Arlington, VA on 02/24/2011
"They were fantastic! I had them come play privately for a surprise dinner where I proposed to my girlfriend and they were above and beyond my expectations. Not only did they play beautifully, they also showed up exactly when I asked them to in order to surprise her and were willing to take any requests we had during the dinner performance. I'd recommend them in a heartbeat. "
- Dave J.
Wedding Reception in Georgetown, MD on 06/18/2011
"The International Strings were the perfect touch for our wedding. They played at my ceremony as well as at the reception. They did not miss a note. Their precision on their instruments brought tears to peoples eyes while I walked down the aisle. They were also the perfect touch to the cocktail hour at our reception. Everyone commented on how talented they were. I am so glad that I went with having them perform at my wedding and reception. It truly added a touch of class to the event."
- Anthony M.
Wedding Ceremony in Sandy Spring, MD on 10/23/2010
"We hired International Strings to play at the ceremony and cocktail hour of our wedding. It was an utter pleasure working with the band from the moment we contacted them. Very responsive and accommodating, International Strings was able to learn/arrange and play a song that was not in their repertoire. Aside from their beautiful sound (we've been receiving rave reviews from guests), the band's professionalism left us completely confident that everything on the music side of the wedding was under control. Other than briefly touching base with the musicians upon their arrival, they were completely self sufficient and did an all around fantastic worry-free job. Thanks!!"
- Tara L.
Wedding Ceremony in Arlington, VA on 05/21/2011

"International Strings did a wonderful job at my wedding cocktail reception. I have a classical music background and so I have very high standards for musicians and I could not have selected a better group. We also received rave reviews from our guests for their music. They were the perfect touch to the perfect day and I highly recommend them to anyone."
- Jill E.
Wedding Cocktail Hour in Baltimore, MD on 06/18/2011
"International Strings did a fabulous job for our wedding. We had classical music for the ceremony and more jazz-based selections for the cocktail -- they played a wide repertoire and our guests loved them. They were even willing to learn a new arrangement of a song that my bridesmaid sang during the ceremony. Overall we were extremely happy with International Strings, from booking through performance. Thank you!!!!"

Private Party in Alexandria, VA on 04/17/2010
The International Strings was wonderful and made our special event perfect. I was extremely impressed by their professionalism. They showed up ahead of time, did everything I had requested and completed the job perfectly. It’s rare to come across such a wide range of styles delivered by a string group. Our guests absolutely enjoyed their music! I would highly recommend them for any kind of event."
- Matvei S.
Wedding Ceremony in Ridge, MD on 07/23/2011
"Like all weddings, the day was completely hectic. During all the chaos before the walk down the aisle, the sweet, melodic sounds of International Strings could be heard throughout the venue. It was AWESOME!! Not only were they an amazingly talented group but in the oppressive heat of the day they were nothing but smiles and compliments for me and the groom. I would without a doubt recommend International Strings and have given them nothing buy rave reviews to the future brides that I know. Again, thank you Slava and group for making our day so special (and classy)!! ~ Cathy & Alun"
