As a musician myself, I was very choosy when engaging a group for my daughter's ceremony. After much searching, Classical Charleston won me over. I worked with Andrew and he was very responsive and knowledgeable. The string trio performed for the prelude, ceremony music, and postlude. They did a beautiful job. Thanks, Andrew and team, for making our family's day extraordinary.
My husband told me early on in our dating that there is something powerful that happens in his soul when he hears the violin and cello played together...I made a mental note of that and it was one of the first things I began to research when we got engaged.
I could not have imagined a better string duo for our wedding ceremony than Classical Charleston. As the bride, I of course didn't hear any of the prelude, and was a BIT distracted during the ceremony to really pay attention to anything other than the face of my husband-to-be- but in watching and listening to the video recording after the fact, I am can definitely say with full confidence that the music was absolutely phenomenal. CLASSIC for sure; elegant, professional, worth every penny, stunning. Wedding worthy!!!
They were great! Very professional and prompt correspondence. Incredible musicianship. Absolutely would hire again and recommend without hesitation.
The music for our wedding was one of the most important choices for us. Both of us (bride and groom) are very passionate about music so we felt it should be one of the best parts of our wedding. Well, with Classical Charleston it was. From start to finish, Andrew and Classical Charleston were a pleasure to work with. From classical arrangements to modern tunes, every song was beautiful. You will not go wrong hiring Classical Charleston for your special event. These guys (and gals) rock!
Andrew Mille and Tomas Jakubek played strings inside our historic venue during dinner. They played contemporary music and surprised most of our guests. The guests enjoyed having someone sit in front of them playing the cello and violin beautifully to songs they were familiar with. They did a beautiful job! I received compliments all night! They were prompt, professional and wonderful to work with. I definitely recommend their services!
Andrew was amazing to work with! We were pretty picky in that we wanted a trio and we wanted a soloist. The soloist was UNBELIEVABLE and I'm so happy we picked Classical charleston! He helped us with music selections and was easily available through phone or email! One of the best decisions we made!!!
Andrew was wonderful to work with! We wanted a specific song to be played when we walked down the aisle and he was very flexible and accommodating. They played a wonderful mix of songs during our cocktail hour, they did a fantastic job!
Andrew was a pleasure to work with and our solo guitarist did a beautiful job playing the prelude, during ceremony and postlude music. She was extremely professional and everyone enjoyed the musical selections.
Classical Charleston was recommended by my wedding planner and I am thrilled I went with her advice. My ceremony music was probably one of the least stressful aspects of wedding planning! I chose the songs that I liked and they made it happen!
We booked Classical Charleston for 30 minutes before the ceremony, the ceremony and an hour after. It was a great decision. Everyone said the party and wedding was so classy. The music was beautiful. They are well versed and very successful at working with us to suit a mix of religions and tradition. I would happily hire them again.
Andrew and his musicians did an outstanding job at our daughters wedding at the Thomas Bennett House in Charleston. Their musical arrangements were very creative and their level of musicianship was excellent. They even wrote a new arrangement at our request. They were on time, looked great, interacted well with guests, and sounded wonderful.
Classical Charleston provided BEAUTIFUL music for our wedding ceremony. We had an outdoor ceremony next to the Ashley River, which their performances made even more picturesque. Although we did not originally budget for "live" music for our ceremony, their music was worth every last penny!It was so elegant and the musicians were all very talented. The great thing with Classical Charleston (and what made us choose them over another company), was the fact that we could "preview" actual recordings of their performances via their website, so we knew exactly the quality of music we would receive on our wedding day. Without a doubt...Classical Charleston should be your top pick for live ceremony music!
Andrew and Tomas from Classical Charleston were the perfect string duo to play at our outdoor wedding. The music was outstanding and Andrew was professional and helpful through the entire planning process. I highly recommend Classical Charleston.
Classical Charleston did a great job providing the music during my wedding and cocktail hour. They were very patient and understanding as I hemmed-and-hawed about music selections. Ultimately, I just gave them a few specifics and the general feel we wanted and they did a great job. Highly recommend.
We had a classical duo for our ceremony and cocktail hour and it was fabulous! We were so pleased! The guys looked sharp and sounded great :)
Classical Charleston was wonderful to work with! They arranged a special piece for me and everything on the wedding day was just what I wanted!
Loved having the cello and violin. Perfect touch to our ceremony.
Classical Charleston is a great choice for ceremony musicians or any other classical music needs you may have. Andrew was very professional, nice, and easy to communicate with. They did a great job!
I had a string trio play at my ceremony, and they sounded absolutely beautiful. When "Moon River" began playing for seating of the mothers, I actually got completely teary eyed. They have a wonderful selection of both traditional and non-traditional (I used the latter) songs. I would definitely recommend!
Classical Charleston did a wonderful job playing our ceremony music, as well as some more modern/jazzy selections during our cocktail hour. They were easily heard over the din of 170 guests in an outdoor venue, and we received many complements about how lovely the music was and how friendly all of the musicians were. They are very reasonably priced as well and have a diverse selection of music for ceremonies and receptions/cocktail hours. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
