    Amazingly beautiful music & amazing people!

    Jill was a pleasure to have as our cellist at COVID wedding #1 in 2020, I immediately booked her for the 2021 wedding, and she coordinated a trio for us for July 31st, 2021! Her team was professional and their music was absolutely beautiful for the cocktail hour! And to top if off, not only are they talented but they are all nice people!!

    Talented cellist, great price!

    Jill was fantastic at our wedding! We had to reschedule a couple times because of COVID restrictions and she was very understanding and accommodating throughout the whole process. She played all the songs we requested and I can't recommend her enough for your big day, too!
