I unexpectedly found myself needing ceremony music with two weeks to go before my wedding. A very stressful situation turned into the best decision I made for my ceremony by reaching out to Jennifer! She was a joy to work with, and I thank my lucky stars that she was available. Jennifer is incredibly talented, and I highly recommend her!!Sent on 10/19/2014

I booked Jennifer for my July 18, 2013 wedding at the Brooklyn botanical garden for an outdoor ceremony. Jennifer provided cello and violin music before during and after ceremony. It was easy to book her services, communicate and ask questions. I would highly recommend Jennifer for your wedding.Sent on 08/21/2013
A friend and colleague, Jennifer is a most professional, pleasant and talented musician.
Jennifer Girone and her band members were pleasant to work with. They played such a beautiful ensemble for the Processional. I felt like I was in “heaven” when I heard them play-they collectively sounded amazing. Jennifer understood the nature of this ceremony. The ceremony went smoothly- since the Rabbi had to announce different chants to the groom and the bride in between; they nailed the cues on point in the transition of different song selections. Jennifer and her band members exhibit professionalism and able to communicate well with clients. I will definitely recommend Jennifer Girone and her band members to clients that want a string ensemble.
Jennifer Girone is an amazing cellist who's sound is not just heard but truly felt. You listen and you are captured and transported by the music to a much higher place. A truly wonderful experience. A must have.
