We just can't express how amazing Sara and the crew at Vivace are - they truly created a magical experience and our wedding guests LOVED their entertainment! They also did a custom arrangement for our processional song - which created a memory to last a life time! If you're looking for fun, creative and extraordinary entertainment - this quartet is who you're looking for!Sent on 05/08/2019

Gorgeous, Magical String Quartet!!
I will never forget, after my husband and I were engaged and started our wedding planning, before we chose our venue or anything else, he came up to me with the laptop and said "this is my one request." And that was how I first learned of Vivace Live. We spent the rest of the night listening to their sound clips on their website, and I wondered, "do you think they sound as good in person?"Sent on 06/19/2019
Flash forward to today and I can tell you having Vivace Live at our wedding was one of the best decisions that we could have made. It was a wedding gift to ourselves and our guests; their beautiful music added an elegance and magic to our rustic venue that made the day truly special. We had guests of all ages (from under 2 years old to 90) and backgrounds; Vivace Live was loved by all!! Their music is timeless with a great selection of songs ranging from classical to contemporary, celtic, film, religious, jazz...something for everyone! Sara and the other musicians themselves were friendly and professional; very easy to work with and a pleasure to have at our wedding. Highly, highly recommend!!

Vivace Live is absolutely AMAZING!!
I had the opportunity of hearing Vivace Live at my friends wedding. I knew immediately after hearing them, that I wanted to book them for our wedding. Sara was very helpful in assisting us to choose songs for our wedding. We booked Vivace Live to play for our ceremony and cocktail hour and guests are still talking about how amazing the live music was. They played every song that we asked them to play and they even collaborated and played a song with our Dj! Vivace Live was such an absolute joy to work with! They responded promptly to my emails and never hesitated to help me in any way that I needed them! I would highly recommend them for anyone who is looking for a live string quartet.Sent on 06/13/2019
If you're looking for music to set your event apart from the rest, Vivance Strings is perfect! Music was just so beautiful! I had the opportunity to talk with them after they were finished playing for a wedding and they all were so personable. Just a great team to work with!
