    First rate!

    We hired Karen and her trio to play for our wedding and the guests said afterward they thought the radio was playing! Karen was very professional throughout answered our many questions. They arrived early and although our ceremony was delayed over 20 minutes because our pastor was late they had plenty of music. It was a gorgeous day and no one seemed to notice except me. She told us later that she has learned over the years to bring more music to cover late weddings and at her own wedding they forgot to bake her wedding cake! Karen's duo played beautifully and we give them the thumbs up and highly recommend! We even gave them a bottle of champagne each and a tip for being so extra special.

    I hired Karen's duo, violin and cello, for my son's wedding at The Barn at Shady Lane. They were fantastic!! The song choices were a mixture of classical and special selections from the bride and groom. They were so accommodating and we really appreciate their willingness to learn a few new pieces for the ceremony. Karen performed a special solo that the bride requested that literally brought tears to my eyes! Very professional and fun to work with - I would highly recommend for any event!!
