    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!

    The Vanderbilt Strings's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words, Allison! We pride ourselves on taking the worry out of planning your music and are so happy you felt at ease and were able to enjoy the music and your day! Best wishes to you both!

    Naples beach wedding

    The Vanderbilt strings performed at my wedding ceremony on the beach. I had an ‘off list’ request and they didn’t hesitate to learn the song and perform it flawlessly. They exceeded all expectations. Would hire 1000x over

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!
