From Bach to Beyonce
Sage String Quartet played for our wedding ceremony and reception. They have a huge repertoire of traditional and contemporary pieces and really added a perfect touch to the whole day.Sent on 05/14/2019

If you are looking for an elegant live band to give your wedding ceremony an additional pop, then look no further! Sage has an offering of hundreds of songs to choose from that can be played either pre-ceremony or during your cocktail hour and each song is guaranteed to wow your guests. The individuals we interacted with at Sage were all true professionals who showed up early for our ceremony and interacted easily with our wedding planner and wedding team. The music they played for us was absolutely beautiful and were some of the high points of our pre-ceremony and cocktail hour events. We highly recommend booking Sage for any wedding or event!Sent on 11/17/2019

An Incredible DC Wedding
Let me just say at the outset - if you want the best possible ensemble for your ceremony or event, save your time and look no further - Sage is simply the best!!Sent on 02/14/2020
My relationship with Sage (as "father of the groom" and fellow musician), began from long-distance approximately eleven months before the wedding ceremony, and with some very specific musical ideas in mind - to the point where we had some special arrangements created which would require world-class musicians. Needless to say, everything was absolutely perfect and turned out incredibly - Sage delivered far beyond expectations!
Kyung LeBlanc (whom I now call a friend), was the most pleasant, accommodating, and professional individual you would ever want associated with a once in a lifetime musical performance. Their ceremony performance (which we made sure was professionally recorded and captured) was total perfection, and the most moving and emotional experience that we could have ever asked for. Our guests will never forget the musical quality and the memories that were created during the prelude and ceremony. We cannot thank Kyung and Sean enough for everything they provided us - we wish that we could relive the entire experience all over again!
We also requested a jazz trio (piano/bass/sax) for the cocktail hour, which provided an incredible atmosphere of elegance and performed by some legendary musicians. In addition, we had the strings perform contemporary selections during dinner, which added so much warmth to the start of the evening reception. All in all, we cannot put into words how much we appreciate everyone's attention and dedication to quality and musicianship.
THANK YOU Sage for delivering beyond expectations. I can honestly say that you will not find a more professional, committed, and musically gifted group of individuals - they were absolutely incredible and definitely exceed a five-star recommendation!!
I recently worked with Sage String Quartet - specifically Regino, one of their violinists. His music was BEAUTIFUL!!! His rendering of Ravel's Sonata created such an elegant setting for my bride to walk down the aisle. Plus, Sage String Quartet is highly professional - so save yourself some worry, and put yourself in the good hands of Sage String Quartet!
Sage is fantastic!
I should say up front that I'm a huge fan of string quartets. I listen to them often, and my standards are high. Sage String Quartet is one of the best I have had the pleasure of hearing. They are a true ensemble, not just four musicians playing together. They are well rehearsed, working seamlessly together, and have a classic, sophisticated sound that blends perfectly. At the wedding we worked together their music selection was ideal - every piece was perfectly suited for the event, and performed expertly in a sequence that flowed well. Tone, dynamics, tempo, interpretation, expression, and execution were all superb. As you might expect, the ensemble conducted themselves with exemplary professionalism. I'm definitely looking forward to working with them again.
