The Atlantic String ensemble was by far the best string group I have ever heard. It was an honor to have them playing st my sons wedding. They accommodated even our last minute requests for songs. We got rave reviews from all of our guests.

I wanted to get the opinions of a few of my guests before I wrote this review because with it being my wedding, I was too busy to know much of what was going on. I did hear parts of a few pieces myself and they sounded great and the quartet dressed well. From my guests I got comments that they were great, awesome, very classy, etc. All highly positive comments. Ellie was also easy to work with ahead of time and calmed my last minute seconding guessing very well. It also helped that "The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba," which I used for my processional, is on their repertoire list :-) I would definitely recommend them to anyone in the future.

The performers were exceedingly professional, talented and personable. My guests were thrilled by the music which the musicians magically transferred from their instruments and touched, as it were, their innermost being. All comments were in the superlative. The Atlantic String Ensemble is extraordinary, awesome, the best! I would definitely love to book them again for future events. They arrived on time and fulfilled their contract with excellence. Thank you for recommending these very talented performers. They added so much enjoyment to my special Christmas 2017 luncheon.
