    The perfect touch to my wedding

    I hired Musical Heart Strings for my wedding back in November and they were such a joy and pleasure to work with!! Gretchen was so nice and personable! They are very professional and their performing is magical. In addition, their website made choosing between songs SO easy!! They were the perfect touch at my wedding and would definitely hire them again in the future.

    Lovely to Work With!

    We hired Musical Heartstrings for our daughter’s wedding ceremony and reception. We loved their wide range of music from classical to rock, their professionalism and flexibility. They were flexible and gladly worked with our vocalist and daughter to ensure that the music was perfect. Gretchen was a pleasure to work with from the initial inquiry all the way through the end of the event .

    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!
