    A wonderful vendor!

    We hired the violin + cello duo for our wedding day. Gretchen and her team was wonderful. They were super responsive via email throughout the planning process and they have such an extensive song list that it was difficult to choose! We had Musical Heart Strings play during both our ceremony + reception and all of our guests loved the live music they provided us. I'd highly recommend Musical Heart Strings! They are awesome!

    Amazing music & Caring musicians

    Beautiful music and friendly musicians. I can truly say that they made my event extra special. I had a string trio play at my wedding and they were able to play beautiful heartfelt string versions of both classical and modern love songs from the Beatles to Talking Heads to Colbie Caillat. I felt that the artists genuinely cared about my event and worked extensively to make sure every last detail was just the way I envisioned it. Because they cared so much they really contributed to the atmosphere of my wedding. I wholeheartedly recommend their work.

    Kerry Borgen and Gretchen Egan of Musical Heart Strings are talented musicians whose name says it all. If you're looking for a professional string ensemble that pulls at your heart strings, look no further than Musical Heart Strings. I've had the pleasure of working with Gretchen and Kerry frequently over the past several years and I'm always impressed by the unusual music selections they play that are tailored to each couple's musical tastes. They are gifted musicians who beautifully render traditional wedding songs, and delightful, adventurous souls who work with you on non-traditional music, too! They are a joy to work with and I highly recommend them. Rev. Lisa Joslen, Ceremonies of the Heart

    Musical Heart Strings duo, Gretchen and Kerry, never cease to impress me with their wide range of music from the classics to one-of-a-kind arrangements by client request. I have worked together with them in over thirty weddings, even having a bride walk down the aisle to Rockelbel and a groom (a law enforcement officer) come in to the theme from Cops. Never caught without a smile, they seem to take pleasure in their work and bring “heart” to every event their music graces. They are always timely and professional. Clients just love them!
