    The Giovanni Quartet played beautiful music for my wedding. They were prompt, professional in all correspondence, and helped me craft the perfect set of music to play, including my special requests. I highly recommend them for any event.

    I would highly recommend the Giovanni String Quartet to anyone planning a wedding or other special event. My husband and I worked with Karl in setting up music for our wedding; he was professional, pleasant, and great to work with. We would hire them again in a heartbeat!

    The Giovanni String Quartet played for my ceremony. They were fabulous! Karl helped with music selection and responded to all my questions in a timely manner. I would highly recommend the group to any bride in search of a musical group.

    We hired the string quartet to play for our wedding. Karl was very responsive with my initial inquiry and very easy to communicate with. The quartet was well rehearsed and prepared all the selections I requested for our welcome celebration, ceremony, and cocktail hour. Several of our guests commented on how beautifully they played and what a nice atmosphere the music provided. It was great meeting Karl in person and I couldn't be happier with their services!

    Giovanni String Quartet played at our wedding ceremony and were amazing! We had several guests comment how much they enjoyed the music. GSQ was very responsive, professional and easy to work with. They even added a piece to their repertoire for us which will always leave us fond memories of the quartet and our wedding ceremony. Five stars all around, I would certainly recommend GSQ to others.

    The Giovanni String Quartet performed for our in-home wedding in early July. I rated this group with a 5 in every category, as they exceeded my expectations in every way. Karl was very easy to work with prior to the wedding and the performance was flawless. I would highly recommend this group to anyone in need of live music. The amount of elegance added to the event far outweighed the cost. Having GSQ play at our wedding was easily the most enjoyable part of the ceremony architecture. We will definitely be having them back to play for other occasions in the future. Thank you, GSQ!

    the music is always wonderful to hear in the background of the hustle and bustle of the meeting and food eating. They played songs that people would know....and I actually received compliments on the songs they chose....even though I didn't choose them. Made me look good to the members!

    Giovanni Strings provided excellent music for our mom's birthday. We felt comfortable with the manager as he responded promptly and with all of the pertinent information we needed. He sent a contract that spelled out everything. The manager was always professional and the musicians were also. When they showed up to our private home for a private party of about 25 guests, the quartet set up and they were very courteous to everybody at the gathering. During their break they said hello to guests and again were very courteous and kind. The group worked with our schedule for the time frames we were looking at. The website is very easy to navigate through and the group provides a repertoire with some songs we could listen to played by the group. The repertoire is pretty large. We chose our songs and sent them to the manager with the signed contract. The quartet played our songs we chose and some of them were in a specified order to go along with a birthday slide presentation. The birthday was special in part due to the music provided by Giovanni Strings. We went with the quartet and glad we did.

    The Quartet was brilliant! They have an absolute amazing selection of music and Karl was SO amazing to work with! He even made sure to have Hedwig's Theme ready for me even though I asked last minute! They're beautiful people and I loved them! I had nothing but compliments from our guests. Thank you so much for making our day absolutely perfect!

    My wife and I were so pleased to have Giovanni String Quartet perform at our wedding. The quartet is so musically accomplished and able to perform both standard and modern repertoire with absolute beauty and skill, including two new selections we commissioned especially for the event. Planning for a wedding is so overwhelming and stressful at times, but this quartet was so easy and professional to deal with that we never worried for a moment about the outcome. We will always have fond memories of their performance on our special day and our guests agree!

    I highly recommend the Giovanni String Quartet. They performed at my wedding ceremony and for our cocktail hour and sounded wonderful. I had many comments from my guests on how much they enjoyed their performance. They had all the music I wanted in their repertoire and were even willing to learn new songs specifically for my wedding if needed. They arrived on time, were very professional, and were incredibly easy to work with. I could not have asked for a better group to perform at my wedding.

    The Giovanni String Quartet was delightful. The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History often books music groups for evening events, and the Giovanni String Quartet was one of the most popular. Everyone made a point of telling us how much they enjoyed the music, and several people have asked if we would have them again. Also, Karl was very responsive when the weather forecast changed and we had to make the decision to move the quartet indoors. They were a great group to work with all around!

    I booked Giovanni based upon other positive reviews and I am so glad I did. They were so responsive and easy to work with. I had a duo (violinist & cellist) play for an hour at my wedding. They did an absolutely beautiful job and we had a lot of compliments from guests. I wouldn't hesitate to book them again in the future!

    The music that Giovanni String Quartet played was absolutely beautiful! They are also incredibly flexible and able to deal with unsusual situations in a calm and professional manner. I had to walk down the aisle TWICE at my wedding because of an error on the part of the wedding coordinator, and GSQ handled the mishap beautifully by continuing to play through the chaos. I highly recommend this group.
