As a bride who had no idea where to start in selecting music for my wedding, Josie from the Frontera String Quartet provided excellent guidance in helping me select music to create the mood I was looking for at my wedding. Her vast knowledge of music and the suggestions she made helped me to create the perfect atmosphere at my wedding and the quality of the performance was amazing. I received many compliments from guests on how much they enjoyed the music that was played. In addition, Josie and the Frontera String Quartet was a pleasure to work with as they were very professional in responding to questions, working through details, etc. I would highly recommend Frontera String Quartet, as the music at your wedding will be remembered for a lifetime. Sincerely - K. M.
