    Would definitely recommend!

    Jill was amazing to work with and always very communicative! She sent a two musicians for my wedding ceremony, one played violin and the other, a cello. Everyone complemented the music and I thought it added such a nice touch to our ceremony! Leading up to the event Jill was very open to any song suggestions but she already has a ton on her list to choose from. Overall, I would definitely recommend her to anybody!

    Wedding Wish

    One of the items on my daughter’s wish list was to have a string quartet play at her wedding. A friend recommended Jill Crist. Jill is a true professional and made the process very easy. Her experience and flexibility with performing at weddings/events (no matter what the weather) was a blessing. The string music was so beautiful and truly gave my daughter’s wedding an elegant touch. My guests commented on how wonderful it was to listen to live classical music during the seating and ceremony and how cool it was to hear modern music played on strings during the cocktail hour.

    The Quartet’s repertoire is huge and if there is a piece that you don’t see on the list, Jill Crist can find it for you. It really was a gift to just send Jill a list of music my daughter chose, and have her create a seamless playlist that flowed beautifully from one song to the next. I cannot thank Jill and the Bryden String Quartet enough for fulfilling my daughter’s wedding wish and making her day so memorable.

    P.S. I have a younger daughter and I am looking forward to working with Jill Crist again to plan her wedding music.

    This is lovely Mary! Thank you so much for all of your kind words and feedback. Best wishes and can't wait to work together again soon!

    Amazing Cello and Violin duo for my daughter's wedding!

    Jill was amazing to work with! Super responsive and flexible. We wanted more contemporary music for my daughter's wedding. Jill has an amazing repertoire and was even able to get the sheet music for 2 special requests. We had a cello and violin duo and the music was just wonderful. It added such a nice touch to the ceremony! You will not be disappointed if you have Jill & her team at your event!
