Thank you so much!

I thought the wedding was fabulous! The music was great.... Thank you. I had received many compliments that day. Some people told me they thought the music was a recording but the closer they walked to the front they saw you guys playing and thought, Wow, how cool is that?

Simply cannot than you enough for all the work you put into last weekend's concert at Woodlake. Your musicianship and virtuosity really showed in the Mozart, your ensemble-sense in the Dvorak, and your flexibility in the Vivaldi. You simply cannot put a price on the sense of accomplishment that the choir feels; it's all they've been talking about since!
I hope you would consider a similar type of program in the future; your group is definately concert series material! If you'd ever like a recommendation, please let me know. I'd be more than happy to help in any way that I can! Best of luck to you in all your future music-making!

Thank you so much for being a beautiful part of our wedding. Even though I was standing at the alter, I remember every song played and it was better than I imagined it would be. As a musician myself, music has always been very important to me and I had always imagined a string quartet on my wedding day. I have several family members as well who play and appreciate classical music. They all told me that the string were beautiful. One of my aunts was brought to tears when hearing Claire de Lune. I would recommend your group to anyone for any occasion.
Thank you agian,

April 17, 2004 Wedding
I just wanted to drop a quick email to you to let you know how much we enjoyed your playing at our wedding. We have had many people who attended say how much they enjoyed the string quartet. It truly added to the specialness of that day.
Our only regret was that as the people getting married we were not able to kick back and listen to your wonderful music. The day felt wonderful but went by in a blur.
Fortunately, we received the wedding video last night and were able to more fully listen and appreciate your efforts.
Thanks for making our day even more special. You folks are great. You even found Marystown!

Thanks for making our ceremony so touching and special!

April 26, 2003 Wedding
I just wanted to write real quick to tell you how pleased we were with the Birchwood String Quartet. Our wedding ceremony was simply beautiful. It sounded wonderful. I got a lot of
comments from co-workers here at the orchestra who wondered who you guys were because you sounded so great. Many people thought you were larger than a quartet because your sound was so full.
Thanks for all the work you guys did to make the ceremony happen. It was perfect. You have our recommendation.

I experienced the Birchwood String Quartet at my ordination into ministry and at a wedding I officiated. Both times the music was compelling, professional and deeply felt. The quartet added beauty and meaning to the ceremonies. The spokeswoman for the quartet was easy to work with and dedicated to making the music congruent with the whole service. I offer you my hearty recommendation.
