Extremely professional, willing to meet specific requests, and came timely and performed expertly as promised. They were not the least cost provider of a string quartet but they especially stood out with a very large repertoire and their communication. They played for a once in a lifetime 80th birthday surprise party for my mother. Dozens of guests came from all over the world and everyone had nothing but praise for the string quartet and their absolutely beautiful music.

Ribbons & Strings Ensembles: STRINGS, Piano/Other’s Response:

From the very first contact with Lee, Ribbons and Strings were very impressed with this wonderfully kind family. We were so honored to be a part of such an important occasion. Barbara's 80th Birthday was excellent and we are happy to have contributed to that. Happy Birthday Again Barbara!

My husband and I are incredibly impressed by the exceptional talent, professionalism, and creativity that the Razumovsky String Quartet brought to our wedding! From the start of our listening session last winter to the final cocktail hour song, Deb and the accompanying quartet members surpassed every expectation we had for our event music. The nearly 2-hour listening session, in particular, was so much fun and truly gave us an opportunity to witness how surprisingly wide their repertoire really is. That session alone is worth every penny. And since their repertoire is so large, they were genuinely able to make our event music special and reflective of us. Thanks Deb!

Ribbons & Strings were amazing to work with every step of the way. Deb is very communicative and professional. You can tell that they all love music and are 100% dedicated to their craft and making your day even more special. I have had an endless amount of people tell me that they were so impressed with the music at our wedding and thought it was so fun to hear hits, like Don't Stop Believing by Journey, played by a string quartet. I would recommend them to anyone!
