    Top Notch Performers and Service

    Diane and Vanessa were a joy to have playing at such a special occasion. My girlfriend loved the surprise and, for me personally, transformed an event so surreal, asking her to marry me, into a very real moment full of life.

    Throughout the process, Diane was very patient with me. I changed the location and date of the event multiple times, and each time she was flexible in accommodating me. Always responsive, Diane and Vanessa showed up on time and even offered to help me out by setting up the room with some last finishing touches (lighting candles, etc).

    You can rely upon Vintage Strings and expect a treat when they perform. If I ever need string musicians, Vintage Strings is my go-to. Do not hesitate to request their services.

    Beautiful presence & performance

    Diane was so responsive throughout the process and helped us think through the ordering of the classical and contemporary pieces we chose. The two custom arrangements that Vintage String put together for us were so charming and captured the spirit of the original songs beautifully. I'd very happily recommend them to anyone who would listen.
