Ted was very responsive and professional in responding to our request for a memorial for our mother. When asked to provide a cellist for an ensemble he quickly found one. His performance was beautiful and helped make our memorial a special one. Several guests commented on how beautiful his music was and that it helped set the atmosphere for the memorial. Ted also went out of his way to make setting up and breaking down seamless, so we could focus on our guests. We would highly recommend Ted for any event.
