Excellent Strings Ensemble
I highly recommend the Queen City Ensemble for your wedding or event! They are extremely professional and communicative. We had to move our wedding due to COVID-19 and they were so accommodating with our new date. They also play beautiful music and had a great selection to choose from.Sent on 04/22/2021

Fabulous to work with
Queen City Ensemble was so easy to work with and provided excellent music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. I very much appreciated all the guidance they gave on what songs worked best for what part of the ceremony. They also know all types of music, traditional and contemporary. I also loved how professional they were. 10/10 would recommend!Sent on 04/27/2021

Wonderful Wedding Musicians
Queen City Ensemble played for our daughter's wedding celebration in March 2021 and did a beautiful job. They were easy to work with, wonderful communicators, and most of all, provided beautiful music for our celebration. We had an out of town vocal soloist, and they had clear communication with him before the event, and everything worked well in their rehearsing prior to the wedding. Queen City Ensemble has my highest recommendation.Sent on 04/21/2021
