All of our Special Requests were beautifully played by Houston String Wedding Music's Piano Quartet which included 2 violins, cello, and keyboard. What a fun as well as professional group to work with. The Lead Player and Artistic Director, Elizabeth, was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and very pleasant with which to work! Everyone is still in awe of our REAL LIVE Music at our Wedding!
We have had the String Quartet & String Trio from Houston String Music play for our Company's Open Houses, Christmas Parties, several employees Wedding Ceremonies, and the list goes on and on....always a pleasure to work with Elizabeth and the wonderful Musicians! Truly the "Best-of-the-Best" for all types of Music from traditional Classical Music, popular contemporary hits, country, show-tunes, fiddle tunes, and religious repertoire. They are always early, enthusiastic, and attractive in appearances. We highly recommend them...but don't take them on our upcoming Special Events!!!
Wonderfully talented "Real Professional" Musicians played for our outdoor Garden Ceremony in May in The Woodlands. Easy and pleasant to work with. They even included their unique WEDDING MUSIC PLANNER to help us select Music. They played our requested Musical selections with much enthusiasm, grace, and set the mood for our Ceremony with their beautiful Prelude Music! I highly recommend the original and official HOUSTON STRING MUSIC!
We highly recommend HOUSTON STRING MUSIC because they have gone beyond the call of duty with us and our Wedding Ceremony & Reception. They had no problem with us changing our minds about our Special Requests and gave us great suggestions! They are very professional, knowledgeable, punctual, considerate, and above all else they are wonderful Musicians. All of our questions were answered and they are very easy to work with and they were very affordable.
Wonderful Musicians who took very good care of all of our needs and preferences as all of our planning was done long-distance. They have a nominal Deposit fee with our reasonable balance not due until the day of Wedding. From the get-go, Elizabeth sent us their handy WEDDING MUSIC PLANNER guide & incredible Repertoire lists for every genre. Elizabeth was wonderful to work with as she is very professional, courteous, witty, and tremendously helpful. Thank you for giving us the Wedding of our Dreams!!!!!!!
Imagine having real, live, Professional String Quartet Musicians planning for your very own Wedding Ceremony! Houston String Music played for our Garden Wedding Ceremony and provided the most totally awesome Music! They were so easy to work with, very helpful during the planning of our Ceremony, and their experience & knowledge really was exceptional. They provided us with their own unique Wedding Music Planner guide to help us get organized and they accommodated us by providing a humongous repertoire listing of Music they play. Their list includes tons of current contemporary popular as well as classical Music. They have Music from almost every genre imaginable. And, they even played a Special Request for which they had to purchase the Music for a nominal amount of $9.95.
We couldn't be more pleased with all of these wonderful Musicians. Before even signing-up, we received their price lists, Repertoire lists of Contemporary, Classical, Religious, Ethnic, Show Tunes, etc. We sent a nominal deposit and began working with Elizabeth to select the perfect Music for the most important day of our lives! The balance wasn't due until the day of our Wedding. Because Elizabeth is so knowledgeable and professional, our planning process was a breeze. Thank you, Elizabeth, for making our Special Day exceed our expectations!
Wonderful, delightful Music and Musicians from Houston String Music. They went beyond the call of duty setting the ambiance for our Ceremony with their beautiful Prelude Music. They always arrive early to warm-up & set-up and began playing Prelude Music which had all of guests eager to get seated and enjoy their Music! They played all of our Contemporary, Classical, and popular requests besides other delightful songs. After the Recessional they played Postlude Music so our guests were treated to even more Music as they were leaving the area. And, Elizabeth was very knowledgeable, helpful, professional, & kind helping us from the very first day. THANK YOU!
We highly recommend the Professional Musicians from HOUSTON WEDDING STRING MUSIC. Elizabeth made our planning process simple with her knowledge, suggestions, and sincere kindness. She provided us with their Repertoire listings of thousands of songs including all of the most popular contemporary selections. Incredible Repertoire. And, they even played our Special Requests not included on their list. They are very reasonably priced, easy to work with, polite, and very experienced at playing Prelude, Postlude, and Cocktail Hour Music besides the Ceremony Music.
Thank you, Elizabeth, for your professional guidance, and kindness helping us plan for our Wedding Ceremony + Cocktail Hour. You provided us with a very detailed Repertoire lists including all of the best popular selections. Your suggestions were terrific, and we couldn't be more thrilled with our Wedding Ceremony and Cocktail Hour of Music. Your knowledge and experience truly made this a very delightful experience for us!
brief complaints: 1. Elizabeth, their admin contact, is horribly unprofessional. 2. They do not have a list of contemporary music they play. You just have to play a guessing game with the admin through e-mail. 2. Keep your e-mails 3. DO NOT pay these people in cash 4. Go over your contract with them word per word at least 2 weeks before your wedding. In detail: Elizabeth acted horribly unprofessional both the day before my wedding and during my wedding. 7 MONTHS PRIOR TO MY WEDDING: I had requested and filled out a contract booking the quartet to play pop music 7-8 months before my wedding. When she sent the contract over, I added a check mark over the cocktail hour and added the extra into the contract price. 1 WEEK BEFORE THE WEDDING: When my wedding planner contacted her the week of the wedding to confirm arrival time, She told her that the cocktail hour was never agreed upon. I saved the original PDF of our contract and when I called her after a week of her and my planner not getting anywhere I was on the way to my rehearsal. I had already told her that we were paying the extra for the agreed upon price for the cocktail hour, then she decided to let us know about the price of the music- which wasn't on the contract. I don't mind paying for something as long as it is in a contract that I signed when agreeing upon a price. She had been aware of the 1 particular song we requested from the 1st email I sent so I feel like the price of anything required to be purchased should have been included in that contract. THE DAY BEFORE: So the day before my wedding I was told they wouldn't be showing up for my ceremony or cocktail hour because if I wasn't going to pay her for sheet music (that wasn't in the price we agreed upon months prior), that she didn't trust that we would have enough money to pay them for the cocktail hour (which WAS in the original contract and we told her we were fine with paying). So I show up crying to my rehearsal at the venue and she calls me back to apologize and say they will be there. WEDDING DAY: My planner and father make sure to hand deliver the balance in cash to Elizabeth while they are setting up--- fast forward to the middle of the cocktail hour. To my surprise, I wander outside in conversation to find no quartet hear nor in site. Apparently, they thought it sufficient to only play half the cocktail hour even though they were paid for the full hour. I even kept every single e-mail we exchanged, including the one when Elizabeth said something along the lines of "I'm sending you the contract, didn't include the cocktail hour, we are still free then so feel free to add it into the contract" where I replied" we added the cocktail hour" and she replied "thank you for keeping us updated." Also we have e-mails where she told us they don't charge for "new" music after she loosley quoted a price for sheet music.
Houston String Music provided wonderful Music for our Wedding Ceremony and Cocktail Social Hour in The Woodlands. Everyone was tremendously impressed that we actually had a real, live, professional String Quartet playing all of the Ceremony Music and then had them play popular songs for the Social Hour following the Ceremony. Their Music was perfect and included traditional classical selections with many contemporary, popular songs for the Cocktail Hour. And, they were very affordable because they are in high demand and play for more Weddings than all of the other ensembles in the Houston area! Elizabeth was a pleasure to work with as she was knowledgeable, experienced, and was quick to respond to all of our questions. Everybody looked great: like real Professional Musicians, which they are! We highly recommend Houston String Music if you want the most highly respected Musicians in SE Texas!
We highly recommend the musicians from Houston String Music because they truly provide the loveliest Music! They have only real, professional Musicians, who are very knowledgeable with acoustics, ceremony protocol, and of course their humongous repertoire is incredible from Mozart to Bach to Bruno Mars to Cold Play to ethnic oldie favorites. And, I found they are flexible and capable of playing all of our specially requested favorite songs! Their rates are reasonable, they are easy to work with and have wonderful personalities.
Houston String Music (Elizabeth) did a great job with our ceremony music! Would highly recommend!
Houston String Music played for our outdoor Garden Wedding Ceremony and Cocktail Hour. Their String Quartet is sensational. No wonder, as they all are experienced REAL PROFESSIONAL Musicians. We highly recommend them as they are not only charming and delightful to work with, they truly love playing. Everyone is still talking about the lovely Music we had at our Wedding which set the entire mood for our Garden Wedding Ceremony!
Thank You, Houston String Wedding Musicians, for giving us the loveliest wedding ceremony, prelude, postlude, and cocktail hour music! Thank you for being so easy to work with, your suggestions, your flexibility, reasonable rates, playing our specially requested songs, and for your professionalism. Everyone was in 'awe' that we could actually have such wonderful Musicians share in our Special Day! THANK YOU, HOUSTON STRING WEDDING MUSICIANS!
Truly the finest Musicians we have had the pleasure of having play at our company's special events. Everybody goes 'beyond-the-call-of-duty' to make sure everything is perfect. They are friendly, professional, and work very hard to provide the finest music including light classical, standard popular, country, and even fiddle tunes.
Thank You, Houston String Music, for providing the most splendid Wedding Ceremony Music! Thank you for playing all of our special requests from Bruno Mars to Bach's Air on G String to Josh Groban. Everyone was so amazed at your wonderful presence, courtesy, and professionalism! You were easy to work with, had great suggestions, and really made our Special Day fantastic!!!!!!!!!!
Houston String Music has played for our Corporate Dinner Parties, Open House, and Awards Banquets for at least 15 years...and we are always thrilled to have them share in our celebrations. We have many famous persons from around the world as special guest speakers, and they ALWAYS remark about how lovely our Music is for the evening! I've even noticed that they arrange to hire Houston String Music for their Special Events!
We highly recommend Houston String Music for any Special Event! They played for our Wedding Ceremony and Cocktail Hour and were absolutely the best Professional Ensemble we have every heard. Everyone is still talking about the wonderful Prelude Music which set-the-scene for the Ceremony of our Dreams! They played our Special Requests including Classical and popular Music such as Only Time, A Thousand Years, What a Wonderful World, and Eine Kleine Nacht Musik. Thank you so much, Houston String Music!
Wow! Thank you Houston String Music for giving us the Wedding Ceremony of our Dreams! Your Musicians were not only terrific Professional Players, but they were very prompt, arriving early to set-up and warm-up, and they were very attractive group of men and women! No one was sloppy, obese, or unsightly, thank goodness!!!
What an amazing Ensemble of Musicians! Imagine having real, live, professional Musicians delighting you and your guests on one of the most important day of your life! Houston String Music has only full-time Professional Musicians with an incredible Repertoire. Elizabeth is extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful, and thoroughly a lovely person with which to plan a Wedding Ceremony of your Dreams!
Musicians from Houston String Music play for our company's special events from Open Houses to Dinner Parties, to our children's Wedding Ceremonies. Obviously, we are extremely pleased, as we call upon them many times every year. They are reasonably priced Professional Musicians with sparkling personalities, and have always surpassed our expectations. All of the players are 'Degreed Musicians' and an enormous repertory of Music from Classical to Waltzes to Cold Play to Irish Fiddle Tunes.
Highly recommending the String Quartet from Houston String Music! They played for our Wedding Ceremony which included beautiful Prelude Music, all of our Ceremony Music, and upbeat Postlude Music. From the very first, Elizabeth was so extremely knowledgeable and helpful with what Music to use for all of our wants and needs. They played special requests and guided us away from selecting Music not appropriate for String Instruments. When she told us they often play at The Woodlands Resort & Convention Center we were thrilled because they already knew about the acoustics and facilities. Highly recommending Houston String Music also because they are reasonably priced.
Truly the Crème de la crème of Musicians in all of Houston, these wonderful Musicians are delightful with which to work, accommodating, and very, very patient with all of our inquiries and variety of musical requests. They are very reasonably priced and actually a bargain. I highly recommend these beautiful Musicians!
