    The Riverview Chamber players were amazing! They played for our ceremony and cocktail hour. They sounded beautiful and we received so many compliments on their music. They were very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the planning process. We would highly recommend having them be a part of your wedding or special event!

    The Riverview Chamber Players were excellent. The Flute Trio was perfect for our event, and the musicians were professional, know just what to do and when to do it without any stress. They played beautifully!
    I highly recommend the Riverview Chamber Players.

    My husband and I couldn’t be happier with Riverview Chamber Players! They were very professional and played everything beautifully and at the exact moment we wanted them to play it. I really loved their vast music selection (they were the only players I found that offered La Vie en Rose- of which I decided to walk down the aisle to). They really made our ceremony and cocktail hour extra special!

    Thank you Rebecca and team! The music was immaculate, and really set the tone for our day! You and your ensemble truly made a difference for us, and we thank you.

    Just a beautiful experience! Cannot thank Riverview enough for their performance/service on the day of our wedding. Courteous, professional, not to mention, superbly gifted and talented. Music selections from the prelude all the way through the cocktail hour was fantastic - great selection of pieces. Not to mention, Rebecca was delightful to work with. Would recommend to all!

    The Riverview Chambers Players performed at my wedding this summer (August 2013) and did a wonderful job. Rebecca was on the ball in terms of organization and SO helpful in choosing the music played during the ceremony, looking for music not in their normal repertoire that suited my particular taste. Additionally, they learned a piece composed by my sister and performed it beautifully on the day. I felt they really went above and beyond to make it a special day and was so grateful that they took the time to learn and practice the additional composition.

    We planned our destination wedding for Cape Ann from North Carolina. We had no difficulty connecting with Rebecca about our vision, musical choices, or logistics. Rebecca made herself very available to us and was able to answer our questions thoroughly while offering advice in the areas where we were not sure. On the day of the wedding, everything went smoothly and the music was beautiful, it completely enhanced the event!

    Rebecca (the director) was exceptionally attentive to our needs. She was well organized, professional and chose excellent musicians to perform at our ceremony. As a musician myself, I can recommend her services without reservation.

    Rebecca and the ensemble (two violins and a cello) did an fantastic job. They worked with us to pick pieces that set the tone we were going for, and the music was just beautiful. We also really appreciated their commitment to marriage equality and the way that they give back to their community.

    Our wedding was planned for the weekend when Blizzard Nemo hit the Boston area. Despite a very frazzled bride, a state-wide travel ban and three feet of snow, Rebecca and the RCP did all they could to adjust to the changing conditions and were there on time when the roads opened back up. I can't say enough about the RCP's professionalism and the quality of their beautiful music. Thank you Riverview for helping to make our wedding so special!!

    We can’t praise the performance and professionalism of the Riverview Chamber Players highly enough. The music was exquisite: the guests loved it. Our wedding was a few weeks ago, and guests are still talking abut how beautiful the music was. Rebecca is extremely knowledgeable about appropriate music selections and, as a result, she was very helpful when we were choosing pieces for the ceremony and reception. In addition, we wanted a vocalist; Rebecca selected a singer who was remarkable. We expected that the music would be wonderful, so we hired an A/V service to record the performance. Now we can listen to our wedding music any time we want. We contracted the string quartet to play for 4 hours. Had we known how much everyone was going to enjoy their performance, we have contracted them for longer! Our wedding would not have been as elegant without the Riverview Chamber Players.

    The ceremony and cocktail hour music from Riverview added the perfect ambiance to our wedding day. Rebecca was extremely professional to work with and very prompt in answering any questions as well as working out particulars. I researched quite a few Musicians and found Riverview to be the best value and top quality.

    We had a string trio for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Rebecca Strauss was extremely easy to work with and made very helpful suggestions for ceremony music, and the music for our ceremony was beautiful! In addition to the processional and recessional we incorporated a musical interlude during our candle lighting that was very moving. The live string music really contributed to making our ceremony special and memorable. I highly recommend the Riverview Chamber Players!

    I can’t say enough about Rebecca’s music, her team, her professionalism, and her caring ways. To make a long story short, Rebecca was able to fit us in her busy schedule at the last minute and she and two other players (a string trio) played beautiful music to our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. She guided us through the process of creating a playlist for the ceremony based on music samples from her website and hymns that I knew. She was open to suggestions for the cocktail hour and everything worked out perfectly!

    Riverview Chamber Players did an outstanding job with ceremony music for our wedding. Rebecca Strauss, Music Director and Jaya Varma, Assistant Director were extremely responsive. They worked within our budget with their suggestions. Our guests loved the music and continue to talk about the event.

    Rebecca was very professional and open to ideas. The group played our special requests for processional/recessional beautifully. We were very preoccupied in the minutes leading up to our ceremony and didn't even have time to say hello to them beforehand. But they are so experienced and professional that while we worried about this and that, RCP knew exactly what to do and contributed to the proceedings flawlessly. Their timing and playing was excellent.

    I am so glad that you were pleased with the music and that we could accommodate your special music requests. Most wedding couples are preoccupied before their wedding ceremony so it is the job of the vendors you hire to make sure that everything runs smoothly so that you can focus getting married to the one you love!

    River View Chamber Players was a delight to have at our wedding! Rebecca (the director) was wonderful to work with during the planning process and the music was perfect for the setting and just what we wanted. We were married in a courtyard and the 3 string instruments worked out great. Thanks for being a part of our special day!
