Wedding ceremony
Whether the traditional "Here Comes the Bride," the equally beautiful Pachelbel "Canon," or another selection from our extensive repertoire, the sound of String Poets will enrich the atmosphere with an ambiance of elegance and sophistication.

Cocktail reception/hors d’oeuvres
Light classics are best. The music does not demand too much attention, but creates a beautiful background.

We recommend Baroque and early Classical (Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart). After all, many of these pieces were written specifically for these occasions.

Dancing
Waltzes or tangos are an excellent way to liven up the evening!

String Poets adds just the right touch to an important meeting. We have extensive light classical and popular tunes.

Holiday party
Favorites from the "Nutcracker" suite, Christmas carols, and popular tunes evoke the holiday spirit.

Combination of all styles, depending on acoustics and audience reaction.

Comments..
I just wanted to take the time to say thank you. You and your group did an amazing job at our wedding reception. The music was absolutely beautiful and I could not have asked for anything better. Your professionalism was amazing and we got so many compliments on you guys. My only regret is that I did not get the chance to thank you personally after the ceremony. You definitely made our ceremony more special and gave it that romantic touch we were looking for. Again, thank you so much. And we will definitely recommend your services in the future to those who are looking for a string quartet.

Thank you so much for serving our wedding. The music was beautiful and I want to let you know that we've received many compliments! I'll definitely look out for you if we help out in any future events in the area. You guys were wonderful to work with. THANK YOU!
Kady and Andy, The Sunset Room  
Thank you all very much for a wonderful performance at our wedding! Your professionalism, timing and etiquette were above reproach. I am just sorry that I wasn't able to enjoy every minute:) As the bride, I was a little busy getting ready and posing for an endless string of photographs. My new husband and I were very, very pleased. Please let all of the musicians know that they were an integral and enjoyable part of our wedding. All the best, Jenn and Bernie

Everyone loved String Poets' performance. I was very happy and satisfied!

Wedding Ceremony
Radhi, I cannot thank you and your colleagues enough for the beautiful music at Sarah's wedding. When I had my final review with the owner, Mark Lynch, I urged him to add the String Poets to their list of preferred vendors -- so I hope he does follow through. My husband still raves about how beautifully played the two musical interludes were (Puccini & Bernstein) and we had many friends at the wedding who are serious chamber music loves and they could not stop talking about the music -- with thanks, Gerry Otremba

"Great to work with, fantastic professional musicians. We could not have asked for a better quartet at our wedding."
Ethan W., Alexandria, VA  
Wedding Ceremony
"My daughter's wedding was planned in only three months. The String Poets (and their lead, Radhi Santos) were a dream to work with on repertory. The musical quality of the quartet is outstanding. Friends who regularly attend world-class concerts praised their talent and overall performance. You will be delighted to have them play for you at any occasion. "
Gerry O., The lodge events, PA  
Wedding Ceremony and cocktail hour
Mr. Radhi Santos and his quartet provided an out standing performance for our 4th annual awards banquet where we had nearly 200 guests in attendance. His quartet arrived promptly and was ready to perform when our event started. The String Poets added the polish to our event that helped put it over the top. Many guests commented on the quality of their performance and the value that it added to the ambiance of the evening. We will certainly be contacting String Poets for our event next year.
-Mike M, Lexington Park, MD

Just wanted to say thank you for the great job you guys did last night. I know I did not get a chance to speak with you, but all of the music sounded amazing! Thanks again for everything :) Best, Rachel
