EXCELLENT STRING GROUP -- HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I have nothing but praise for Forte Strings. Sharon, the group's contact person and lead violinist, was an absolute pleasure to work with. I needed a trio to play for my mother's funeral at very short notice, and Forte Strings provided exactly what I was looking for. Sharon was professional, communicative, prompt to respond to questions, and very knowledgeable about appropriate music. They were able to play specific pieces I requested as well. Fair price, appropriate attire, punctual, professional. Absolutely excellent. I would use them again, hopefully under happier circumstances.
