    A string trio from Antares played for our ceremony and cocktail hour, and they were wonderful. Tammy was our point person before the wedding, and she was incredibly responsive and helpful with picking out our processional and recessional music, and she was also really communicative with our day of coordinator about cueing the ceremony. It’s very clear that Antares musicians have a ton of experience with weddings. I didn’t get to hear much of the pre ceremony or cocktail hour music, but I received so many compliments about the fun music they played. We asked them to play more contemporary music, and our guests loved hearing instrumental versions of many songs, especially the Game of Thrones theme song! I highly recommend Antares – they’re incredibly professional and experienced, and of course, their music was top notch.

    From the moment I looked at the very organized and extremely informative , complete with wonderful Sound Clips, Antares Musicians website, I knew immediately that I found a very professional and seasoned group to play at my daughter's Wedding Mass.
    Our strings trio + flutist ensemble were simply magnificent and their beautiful music set the perfect tone for the ceremony. The collective raves and praises from our guests ..many music aficionados among them..were endless. We also hired through Antares Musicians a fabulous pianist who provided lovely background music during our sit - down dinner.
    Equally important when planning any musical event is the need to communicate with the hired group. Again Antares did not disappoint. My point person Jill ( flutist) was consistently responsive to any and all questions throughout the planning process and she made EVERYTHING flow seamlessly for me.
    Antares Musicians are perfect in every way! I not only highly recommend them but will unequivocally state.....ONLY hire them for your musical needs!
    Bravo and my very best to Antares Musicians....

    Our daughter's wedding was this past weekend. We had a garden ceremony in glorious 70 degree sunny weather and Antares Musicians helped make the ceremony magnificent. We had a string quartet which included Jill as one of the musicians. Throughout the planning process and even up to the last two days before her wedding when our daughter changed her music for the processional, Antares was professional, responsive and thorough in making sure all changes were clear and all parties were provided an updated contract. They arrived on time, set up easily and played lovely arrangements while our guests arrived. ( I didn't get to hear that music but my family and friends raved about it). I did however hear all the music during the processional. I highly recommend Antares Musicians not only as the Mother of the Bride but I also own an invitations and calligraphy business in Columbia and have had 30 plus years working in the business so from all aspects they are top notch. Thank you Jill! Jan Schub

    Antares Musicians is my favorite classical string group to recommend to my clients. They are comprised of a collaboration of classically trained musicians, but they can also perform classical-style arrangements of contemporary pop music. They are incredibly organized, which makes my job and my clients' experiences much easier!
