    Beautiful Job!

    My husband and I could not have been happier with the music they played for our ceremony. It was perfect! Janie worked with the venue to ensure they had what they needed and knew where to go so I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Many compliments from our guests, we were very impressed!

    Highly recommend the Vanderbilt Strings - Exceptional

    Very happy with our decision! Top notch, professional, talented musicians who made our wedding day unforgettable. Our guests all agreed that the music was the perfect complement to the beautiful beach setting. They have an extensive selection of songs to choose from - so many that we had a tough time choosing given all the wonderful options. From start to finish it was a pleasure working with the Vanderbilt Strings and we HIGHLY recommend them.

Great to meet you!

I moved to Naples from the Washington, DC area in 2005 to do two very important things in my life: make a career in a wonderful orchestra and join my viola-playing fiancee there. The good weather here certainly was the icing on the cake.

Once here we began the Vanderbilt Strings as a way for us to branch out and play all kinds of music and meet all kinds of people. And now, We. Are. Hooked. We play over 150 events in the area every year and I get to spend time connecting with clients from all over, each with musical tastes and backgrounds that keep me inspired to do my best to keep our music as top shelf, diverse, and interesting as the people we play for!

Get in touch-- I'd love to hear from you!

Janie
