We used symphony a la carte for our ceremony music and ceremony amplification. They were absolutely amazing! They have an extensive song list, and we chose contemporary music (think Vitamin String Quartet) for our entire ceremony. The music was beautiful, and the ceremony amplification was flawless. I would highly recommend!Sent on 03/01/2018

It was a fun experience picking the songs for the wedding.
We got so many positive comments from family and friends about the string trio. It was a lovely combination of a traditional sound with modern songs.Sent on 05/10/2019

I booked symphony ala carte with a short notice due to a cancelled booking. Allison was prompt and thorough with booking and follow through, allowing me to be assured that we would have everything taken care of without worry. Their services were perfect, with no complication. I would recommend this company for any event.Sent on 05/11/2019
Allison is a fantastic ceremony violinist. She arrives on time, is prepared with the music selections, Cliff (her husband) gets all the equipment in place and it's always a treat to hear her play before and after the ceremony. She is, by far, our most often booked violinist and favorite!! She plays a variety of music--even the theme to Star Wars once! Her recommendations for other musicians is spot-on, and can always be trusted. We love Allison!!
Allison is a true pro. In addition to her amazing talent on the violin, she is easy to work with. I appreciate her working with us to customize each ceremony so that each wedding is truly a reflection of our couple. We look forward to working with Allison again and again!
