beautiful music, perfect song reccomendations
Amati Chamber music provided a trio for my wedding ceremony and it was absolutely beautiful. They provided amazing recommendations on songs and were great about coordinating the order/timeline of the ceremony music. They were very professional and responsive to my many questions. I can't recommend them enough!Sent on 07/20/2020
Amati Chamber Music's reply:Thank you very much for your kind words, Emma! Our trio was so pleased and honored to play for your beautiful wedding! It was great working with you, and we wish you and Matt all the very best!

Divinely Musical Performance and Seemless Experience
Amati Chamber Music performed as a string quartet for 1 1/2 hours during my daughter's wedding and the coffee hour that followed. The performance was divine and took the emotion and reverence of our gathering to a height that we would not have experienced without them. These musicians are professionals and deliver musicality, not just music. In the planning, Sarah Paul, the leader and cellist, was extremely helpful, courteous, and comforting. She made it clear that all of the musicians of Amati Chamber Music were committed to making one of the most important days of our lives exceptional. That they did. I only wish I had another event to plan, so that I could invite Amati Chamber Music to perform. Bravo, ladies!Sent on 01/10/2020

Fantastic mustiy for my wedding ceremony
I hired a trio from Amati Chamber Music for my wedding's ceremony. They were incredible. Our guest were stunned by the live music and it made the ceremony elegant and beautiful. They were on time, played before, during, and after the ceremony, made communication a breeze, and helped make the ceremony music choices streamline. I would recommend them to anyone! Thank you for all you did!Sent on 11/20/2019

We think this group was absolutely fantastic, both in the music they played and simply to work with prior to my daughter's wedding. They were extremely accommodating with all of our requests and also had excellent suggestions for us to consider. The pre-ceremony music was perfect, and what we requested, and of course the processional and recessional was right on target. They were also very honest in saying it would not be worth the money to spend to have them at the reception as it would be so loud no one would hear them. Very few people would say something like that. They were pleasant, professional and perfect in every way.Sent on 09/15/2019

This quartet is simply SPECTACULAR and was the nicest surprise on my wedding day!! I grew up playing piano, and loved classical music from a young age. I learnt about Amati through following a celebrity's instagram (haha) and connected with Sarah shortly after. She was SUPER helpful and responsive from beginning to end. I cannot give glowing enough of a review for her and the team! She gave me a lot of detailed and specific guidance on the music selection which makes the process so much easier! The musicians played BEAUTIFULLY on the wedding day, and I even heard a lot of praises from my guests after the wedding. Amati blew all my expectation out of the water. The only slight disappointment is that there isn't a shade at the ceremony venue, so the musicians were playing at the back of the guests. Definitely keep that in mind as you decide to hire them, some kind of shade structure at the front will allow the ceremony to become a nice mini-concert for the guests!! They also had a beautiful and strong sound, and were tight and very musical. I really cannot overstate how surprised and pleased we were by how good this quartet is. They were also incredibly professional when they got there -- on time (appropriately early), and looked great!Sent on 06/14/2019
For all of this, they are absolute value choice. I cannot recommend them highly enough to everyone I know. If there were 10 stars that's what they'd get.

As talented as they were (and they very much are!), working with Amati Chamber was a positive and convenient experience! It was a pleasure talking through details with Sarah and would hire and recommend them again without question.Sent on 05/14/2017

My husband and I both really love music and so we decided to splurge on a string trio for our wedding. For people who aren't familiar with the costs of such talented musicians like the Amati Chamber Group it can be a little surprising to get their quote; however, it is the absolute best decision we made and set the tone for our entire ceremony. They are well worth every penny!!! I worked directly with Sarah and she was fantastic! She cared so much about making sure that they played music we wanted and even helped me think beyond their classical music selections on their website to curate a selection of songs personal to us. For instance, my husband and I are big Disney fans and so she and her team even learned a few new Disney songs for our wedding to play during the prelude and postlude. Guests came up to me after the ceremony just to share how wonderful the strings were and named favorite songs they heard too! So, it makes a big impact. I highly recommend using their service and compared to other music groups in the area that I talked with Sarah is hand's down the most professional and wonderful to work with!Sent on 10/07/2016
Amati Chamber Music's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words and thank you for including us in your gorgeous, elegant wedding, Mallory! Lee, Lisa and I loved playing for you and Michael, and it was such a pleasure working with you! We wish the two of you every happiness in your marriage! Thank you again for allowing us to be part of your very special day!!

Sarah, with Amati, was extremely responsive and enthusiastic from the moment I first contacted her about performing at my daughter's wedding. She provided a guide, lists of music, and basically helped walk her through the planning of her entire ceremony. When we discovered there was no music to be found for the song she wanted to walk down the aisle to Sarah found someone to write the music!! I highly recommend Amati Chamber Music for your special event.Sent on 08/28/2016

Sarah and Amati Chamber Music had been recommended to my by another musician to consider playing at my son's wedding and I must say they were great. Sarah was exceptionally responsive to all my questions, was very helpful in music suggestions and was a pleasure to work with. The string trio's music was beautiful and was enjoyed by everyone in attendance. They definitely were a factor in helping make my son's wedding day very special.Sent on 06/27/2016

Amati Chamber Music accompanied our wedding at The Basilica of The Sacred Heart in downtown Atlanta in April, and we were absolutely thrilled with them. What a beautiful quartet! The played our selections perfectly, and combined wonderfully with the church’s organist to form a truly memorable accompaniment to our big day. The experience the quartet has of playing with each-other means that the quality of the playing, as well as the huge amount of pieces that they were able to advise us with, took a huge amount of pressure off us on the day itself.Sent on 08/07/2016
Although our choice of recessional (the intermezzo from Mascagni’s “Cavelleria Rusticana) wasn’t a piece that they had played before, they performed it absolutely beautifully. It was just as we imagined it would be when Clare walked down the aisle.
Amati were incredibly easy and professional to communicate with, and a joy to work with. We can’t recommend them highly enough.
Penny · Married on 03/12/2016
Amati Chamber Music exceeded my expectations. I hired them from two states away to play at my daughter's wedding ceremony. Sarah was easy to communicate with and very professional. I felt very comfortable hiring this group after speaking with Sarah and getting quick and honest feedback. At the ceremony, the trio played beautifully!Sent on 03/21/2016

Absolutely perfect from beginning to end. Sarah Paul provided a professional and knowledgeable voice from our first point of contact. If I needed musical suggestions, she had plenty. And when I made a request, she either already knew the piece or quickly found an arrangement.Sent on 01/24/2016
There was plenty to stress about when the big day finally arrived. Thankfully, because of Sarah and her quartet, I never worried about the ceremony music for a moment. Every piece was played beautifully and it added so much to the experience. We were completely satisfied.
It seems that many people forget how much of a role music plays in a wedding. Find somewhere else in the budget to skimp if you must, because a professional quartet is completely worth it.

WONDERFUL!!!! Sarah and the ladies from Amati Chamber Music, Inc. are so amazing and talented. I surprised my husband with the string trio and Sarah helped me keep it under wraps. I can't say enough wonderful things about Sarah, she is such a pleasure to work with and made the whole process delightful. The music was fantastic and all the guest raved about them!! Thanks ladies for making our day so perfect.Sent on 04/16/2015

Sarah Paul and her trio from the Amati Chamber Music were a perfect addition to our rose garden setting at the Botanical Garden. They played every selection of music we asked for and was flexible in providing the timing of each selection. Even though Sarah was willing to meet with us, all of our communication was done via email or telephone, which was perfect in an already hectic schedule in planning a wedding They arrived on time, very professional in the presentation and attire, and accommodated our every musical need for the wedding, from prelude to postlude. I highly recommend you use the Amati Chamber Music for your next event; you will be thrilled that you did.Sent on 04/21/2015

Amati and Sarah Paul exceeded every expectation.......our string music was extraordinarily performed by a trio of professionals in every aspect. From the initial contact, I found them to be prompt, communicative, cooperative, and cordial--and EVERYTHING was able to be completed online or by cell phone!

Amati Chamber Music truly set the mood for our wedding ceremony. Our guests were greeted with the beautiful sounds of very talented string musicians. Sarah Paul worked hard to make sure we got all of the songs we requested played. We even had a beautiful solo during our ceremony. These ladies are extremely talented and really do care about each client. They stayed after the ceremony to serenade us during photography with the family. I can’t thank them enough for making the wedding ceremony so special. Strings were a very important part of our ceremony and I will never forget hearing the music as I walked down the aisle.Sent on 12/15/2014

Preface: we are band and orchestra teachers and musicians!Sent on 06/05/2012
Sarah Paul and Amati Chamber Music did a WONDERFUL job with the music for our wedding ceremony. The first wedding decision that we made was to hire Amati Chamber Music. We knew that we did not want our friends (lots of musicians and music teachers) to play for our wedding, and that we needed to hire a professional that would be flexible with our unique music requests. Sarah was wonderful in the planning of our ceremony. She graciously allowed us to look through all of her music arrangements to select just the perfect ceremony music. She guided us on a few aspects, and listened to our needs and wants too. On the day of, the trio was early, dressed professionally, and sounded amazing. I will never forget hearing the sounds of the trio playing as I walked down the stairs with my dad. Our educated guests were also very impressed with the trio. Even if you know nothing about music, Sarah will walk you through every aspect of the music selection process with the utmost patience. We would highly recommend Amati Chamber Music to any couple looking for a professional, talented chamber group for their wedding or other special event.

Amati Chamber Music provided the most beautiful music at our recent wedding ceremony. Having worked with Sarah Paul as a professional musician in Atlanta for several years, Kate and I knew she was the one to call for our wedding. Sarah was infinitely patient and helpful in planning and selecting just the right music. She put us in touch with an arranger to transcribe both organ and orchestral music for the string quartet to perform. The quartet went to great lengths to learn several new (and some quite difficult) pieces. They rehearsed with and accompanied our soloist, and even allowed me the great honor of performing a concerto with them during the prelude before the ceremony. Their performance was exquisite, and all of the musicians were a pleasure to work with. These are exceptional artists and we highly recommend them. Thank you, Sarah and Amati Chamber Music!

The Amati Chamber Music's execution of the musical selections for our daughter's wedding was nothing short of spectacular!!!! our ceremony was scheduled to begin at 6:00 pm; however the dedication shown by Sarah, Lee and Allan was evident by their early arrival to meticulously rehearse each piece of music was a delight. Our guests gave rave reviews of the music, especially Canon in D by pachelbel which was the introit selection for the Bride's entrance. I would give The Amati Chamber Music Group 10 out of 10 stars and would highly recommend them for your formal function.Sent on 08/23/2010

As a musician I knew I wanted a professional, live classical ensemble for my wedding ceremony. Founder Sarah Paul graciously spent more than sufficient time in preliminary discussions, even referring a stellar disc jockey I hired. She honestly assessed our needs and matched them, determining the perfect instrumental combination to achieve the sound I desired. She willingly agreed to perform the vocal selection I personally arranged and offered rehearsal time for the singers who were coming from different locales. She even proofread the program! I didn’t just hire musicians; I got a supportive, friendly consultant in the process. We await our ceremony video to once again enjoy the beautifully executed music these lovely ladies provided.Sent on 06/10/2010

Sarah Paul and Amati Chamber Music are amazing. Their playing abilities are phenomenal and the song selection is great. Our guests continue to talk about two things: the music and the food. They are very reasonably priced and worth every penny. Amati Chamber Music helped make our special day, one to remember. What we really appreciated about Amati Chamber Music is that they not only helped us select our ceremony music but also help with some of the wedding planning. They genially care about helping make your special day one to remember.Sent on 11/02/2009

Sarah Paul and her co-workers, Lisa and Susan, were amazing and I highly recommend them for a wedding or any other event. Sarah followed up thoroughly and promptly throughout the months preceding our wedding. She was pleasant to meet with and work with, and was always so helpful and thoughtful in all that she did.Sent on 08/26/2013
All three musicians sounded beautiful during the ceremony and cocktail hour; I got many compliments from family and friends who enjoyed their music. These musicians were one of my favorite vendors that we had working at our wedding. I would certainly recommend them to any bride and groom searching for the perfect music to accompany their special day!
