"This is my second time booking them for my event. The event was three years apart and it seems that they have gotten even better. On time (early to set up before the event), pleasant and professional and their sound was as if I was listing to a CD: Clear, Pure, Perfect. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed them. It has been a pleasure once again and will definitely use them again."

"String Poets are talented and generous. Our memorial service at Wolftrap was a challenge as it included a classical set, a dove release and several secular pieces interspersed within a program. Extraodinary musicians and professionals, the String poets hit every challenging entry, page turn and pause.
As a modest singer, I would recommend String Poets to enhance any gig. They make you sound like a star. Their accompanment to Josh Groban piece ("To Where You Are") was straight from heaven.

"Great group, unmatched talent based on all the other groups I looked at. All the wedding guests raved about them and asked where I found them. Very accomodating and worked with me the whole way through. All in all, I'd say the best spent money throughout the entire wedding. Highly recommended!!!!"

"Radhi Santos and The String Poets played for our daughter's wedding ceremony in Midlothian Virginia. They arrived promptly, played beautifully and were enjoyed by all. As a special surprise they performed a selection that the bride had requested on short notice much to her guests and her grooms delight.
I would recommend The String Poets to anyone wanting an exceptional experience.

"My guests loved them and even thought the day went by so quickly I made it a point to stop and listen to them, They were GREAT. And they were so very friendly and smiled the entire time. They must love what they do, because they do it so well.

"Although I didn't even have time to speak to any of the performers on the day of. My family and friends that dealt with them thought very highly of them. The music was perfect for the ceremony and Radhi Santos was very accommodating via email when I was working two jobs before the wedding and had little time to go over things. String Poets definitely added elegance to our special day.

"Our previous arrangements with another quartet fell through and within a week's notice, I was able to confirm the String Poet's Quartet for my engagement. They were very accomodating and very professional. Their contact person even returned my phone call while he was on vacation to assure me that all would be well and that they would take care of us. And they definitely lived up to their word. All of the guests at our engagement thoroughly enjoyed them and are still talking about them to this day."

"String Poets set the tone for the entire wedding with their beautiful music and tone. I am a professional musician and I was very particular with the music for my son's wedding. Radhi Santos was excellent to work with and impressed my son's fiance with the time that he spent with her planning songs for the ceremony. I would highly recommend String Poets to anyone. The group is made up of professional musicians who perform as principals with major area orchestras. They are highly trained and take pride in their work. Thank you String Poets for making my son and daughter in law's wedding such a beautiful occasion."

- Kelsey T.

"I couldn't have been more pleased. These guys sounded just perfect! They played a non-traditional piece for me as I walked down the aisle - Dvorak's Humoresque No.7 as well as other pieces we selected for the reception. They are finely skilled musicians and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a string trio (they also have a string quartet) for their event."

"Mr. Radhi Santos and his quartet provided an outstanding performance for our 4th annual awards banquet where we had nearly 200 guests in attendance. His quartet arrived promptly and was ready to perform when our event started. The String Poets added the polish to our event that helped put it over the top. Many guests commented on the quality of their performance and the value that it added to the ambiance of the evening. We will certainly be contacting String Poets for our event next year."

"We hired String Poets for our daughter's waterfront wedding on September 20. We love many styles of music and therefore asked Radhi if String Poets could play traditional classical mixed with popular classics. He was totally enthusiastic and cooperative,even humming a song to me over the phone to be certain we were talking about the same selection. He searched for new music for the pieces which were not already in their repetoire and the performance was magnificent! He could not have been more cooperative and supportive. When it came time for the performance, the group played skillfully and with feeling! LOVELY!

"My daughter's wedding was planned in only three months. The String Poets (and their lead, Radhi Santos) were a dream to work with on repertory. The musical quality of the quartet is outstanding. Friends who regularly attend world-class concerts praised their taelent and overall performance. You will be delighted to have them play for you at any occasion. Gerry O."

"The String Poets group was great! They had no problems with our requested playlist, and we got multiple compliments for them from our guests. We'd definitely recommend them to others."
- Nan L.

"The musicians took care to speak with me & email me before my wedding to check that everything was done as I liked, and they were early & already set up well before the time asked. Also, we put them through additional difficulties- first inside, then at the last moment, outside when the rain stopped, then even a little rain on their beautiful instruments while they played a lovely rendition of Ave Maria! Their professionalism was unshaken throughout this. And, all the music was beautiful! I highly recommend them!"
- Heather T.
in Taneytown, MD
"The String Poets were able to come through for us on very short notice. Having never met them in person I was at first hesitant to book them, but after speaking to Radhi I comfortable I had make a good choice. We are very pleased with their performance during our ceremony. We couldn't possibly be happier. No reason for anyone to look any further than with the String Poets, you will not be disappointed in their professionalism, suggestions, or performance."

"The string quartet was absolutely amazing and they played everything we requested (I even requested the Star Wars theme and they played it). The only draw back was that Radhi, who does all the coordinating, is extremely difficult to get a hold of and to be honest we weren't even sure if we were going to have a string quartet until about 2 hours before our ceremony. "

"When they arrived at the event half of them never met the other half of them. The cello told me they called her to sit in on this event and never met the person. They were so bad, we had to cut one of the hymns in the service.
They told me to send them the music and I did. They told me the needed the music, because they were going to rehearse before the event.
They were an embarrassment"

String Poets Quartet’s Response:
"We did a "GREAT" Job. There was an overwhelming amount of praise from guests including the client. This is a baseless personal Attack. Our FIVE STARS feedback speaks for itself.
We had to have an emergency replacement Musician, because our Regular Cellist was hospitalized. Substituting musicians is a common practice in the performing arts. True professionals always have someone on hand to fill in seamlessly, as our Cellist did. Our substitute Cellist is a member of "Annapolis Symphony". She is a fantastic Musician.
The client never provided "Finlandia" at any point before or during the event. That is why we did not play it. We did our job,and we did it well!"

"These gentlemen were spectacular. Top-tier musicianship and their playing was rich, emotive and flawless. And just the nicest guys you'll ever meet. As others have said, they arrived early and were set up and ready to go. They gave our event that extra special touch of class and pomp we were looking for. I hope to have an occasion special enough to call on them again. Thank you! "
