Professional, Well Rehearsed

For our wedding on 12/17/2022, we hired a string trio to perform our ceremony, and they were fantastic. They went out of their way to play something special for my mom at my request, and of course, they play wonderfully.

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鈥檛 have to worry about a thing. Many compliments from our guests, we were very impressed!

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
