Client Reviews

This is what a few of our former clients had to say:

October 2010 – Wedding – Barnsley Gardens
Wedding of Oded and Melissa Cojocaru

I wanted to thank you once again for making our wedding a truly spectacular event! You and your musicians did a superb job and Melissa and I, as well as ALL of our guests could not stop admiring your talents. You guys really pulled the whole scene together and I cannot imagine our wedding without your beautiful music. Thank you, again, for taking the time and trouble to find the movie scores and doing such a great job of playing them, everyone agreed that they were not only beautiful but also an original touch and a personal one as well considering my aspirations. As a lifelong movie score enthusiast, and a music lover in general, I just wanted to tell you how amazing it was to hear those. You guys rock!

September 2010 – Wedding – Private Residence
Wedding of Jake and Stephanie Counts

Hello Jim, I wanted to thank you and The Armonico String Ensemble for an amazing job at my wedding this past Saturday. Everything went perfectly, and the beautiful music was such a wonderful addition to our ceremony. I couldn’t have asked for better accompaniment! I will definitely recommend you all to anyone I think might be interested. Thanks again!

October 2006 – Wedding – The Carl House

Hi Ben, Though its been over a year, I just wanted to compliment you on what a great job you all did at our Wedding (2 Octobers ago!) … I received so many compliments on the beautiful music, and I don’t know that I ever communicated that to you. I wish Armonico the best for success and a long future. Thanks again!

September 2005 – Inman Park United Methodist Church
Wedding for Naylene Vitek

Ben- Thank you so much for the beautiful music you provided at our wedding ceremony. Everything was just perfect! We’d be happy to serve as a reference if you ever need one!

August 2005 – Atlanta, GA
Parents of the Bride, Mr. and Mrs. Ralston

Dear Ben, I can’t begin to tell you how much we and our guests enjoyed the music at our daughter’s wedding. Your ensemble truly added musical beauty to the ceremony.

June 2004 – Marietta Square
Wedding for Daughter of Mrs. Susan Kuehne

“Superb”. I was so pleased with [Armonico]. My daughter and her groom got exactly what they had requested for their wedding ceremony “a string trio in the park”. We had many, many compliments from the guests. I was expecting a lot, due to my own musical background, and I was certainly not disappointed. Catherine and I had a string of emails … She answered all of my question and met all of my requests. Having stings for an outside wedding is absolutely perfect!!”

Feb 2004 – Atlanta, GA Northside Regional Hospital
ENT Clinic of Atlanta, Corporate Reception

All of you were wonderful. Great job, and Catherine, I enjoyed working with you to set this up.

April 2004 – Alpharetta, GA Prospect House
Wedding of Rebecca Byrne

When we first came into the reception and heard you playing, it was wonderful and added a real touch of class to the event. I only wish I’d had more time to sit down and listen to you, but obviously my fiancé and I were running around talking to the guests. I know my parents were very happy with your performance and we all want to thank you so much!

May 2004 – Alexandria City, AL, Private Residence
Wedding of Daughter of Mr. John Petrey

Wow! The trio did a fabulous, fabulous job Saturday. Several people told me what an elegant and beautiful addition to the ceremony your music was, and I totally agree. You were such a big help with suggesting selections, and you certainly were most accommodating in letting us hear selections ahead of time at the coffee shop.

May 2004 – Alpharetta, GA, Country Club of the South
Wedding of Melissa Wallet

From what everyone told me the music was beautiful, I had many compliments! Thanks so much for your help.

April 2004 – Toccoa Falls College, Graduation Reception

I just wanted to say ‘thank you’!! The Armonico String Ensemble was absolutely amazing. The music that was provided by your group was nothing less of amazing. Our banquet went from nice, to absolutely amazing with the touch the Strings gave it. You were on time, and ready to go when needed. I have heard nothing but good remarks from the student body. They really loved having a string quartet play. It all went over really well. I just wanted to say thanks though, for you guys did an awesome job!! I hope to use your group in the future, and if not, I will for sure refer you to others!!! Thanks again, and take care!

April 2004 – Morningside Elementary

I teach a pre-kindergarten class of four and five-year olds and one of our theme units of study is “Music Appreciation” in our classroom. During the 2003-2004 school year we were delighted to have Catherine Lee and Mary Knight come to our school with violin and cello to perform. The parents of one of our students had recommended them to us, as they are the owners of the ChocoLate Coffee shop in Atlanta where the Armonico String Ensemble performs every first and third Sunday of the month.

Catherine and Mary had a very respectful attitude towards these young children as they gave a background of themselves, answered the children’s questions with interest, and they played pieces that inspired the children to clap and move their bodies. The ease with which Catherine and Mary interacted with the children was so comfortable, yet extremely professional at the same time. The teachers and the students were very appreciative of this wonderful performance that was presented to us.

The Armonico String Ensemble will introduce and inspire a love of classical music to any grade level of school children, some of whom may want to become musicians themselves one day. I highly recommend these talented performers.

March 2004 – Atlanta, GA – Georgia Tech Campus
Marriage Proposal by Mr. Nickolas Kingsley

“Catherine, I appreciate you performing for my proposal. You really made it a magical experience. I wish you could see how Holly’s face glows when she tells the story of our proposal and says “…and there was a violinist playing…”.

February 2004 – Atlanta, GA; Club Eleven50
Wedding of Ms. Jennifer McDormand

It was high quality from start to finish. Thank you again for all the extra work on finding just the right selections for us. Guests LOVED the music. It added such a special element to the ceremony and the cocktail reception. I will highly recommend your group. The customer services, prices and quality of service were all superb.

Catherine Lee and her associates were wonderful. They arranged a special instrumental version of Love Me Tender for me to walk down the aisle to and accompanied our soloist who sang In My Life during our sand ceremony. They were very reasonably priced and they sounded fantastic. I highly recommend them.
