    highly recommended

    I booked a string trio (violin,viola, and cello) for my wedding ceremony on June 14th and I could not be more impressed and pleased with the service I received. The responsiveness for my questions and booking was very good, the pricing was very reasonable when compared to other agencies and they offered a good variety of music. My guests are still commenting on their moving performance throughout the ceremony. I would highly recommend!

    Beautiful music

    We hired the violin and cello duo to provide music for our outdoor ceremony. We couldn’t be happier with the music and services that cadenza strings provided. Brenna was professional, prompt, easy to work with, and flexible. She had many wonderful modern and classical song options we could pick from (which made it hard to choose!). She even agreed to play a song that was not on the list and did so beautifully. We received many complements from guests about the music, and it provided the perfect backdrop for a romantic ceremony. Thank you Cadenza Strings! I would not hesitate to hire them again.

    Cadenza Strings,...my daughter’s wedding

    Cadenza Strings played at my daughter’s wedding last weekend at the Elora Mill. The music was ethereal...pure, crisp, joyful..... spectacular. Right from initial contact with Brenna to hearing them before coming to my seat in the ceremony space it was nothing but professionalism and quality. It was a leap of faith to hire, sight unseen or heard.... but can I say they were a highlight of the wedding! True talented professionals who looked and sounded the part! 💗💗💗💗💗

    Excellent Experience and Beautiful Music

    Cadenza Strings played at our wedding this past weekend. They provided music for both the ceremony and cocktail hour. They were extremely pleasant to work with, provided great suggestions, were professional and on time. Having a string trio or quartet certainly adds a level of elegance to any wedding or event, and would love to hire them again for a private event.

    Wedding Quartet

    The team was so great. Brenna was quick to respond to all of my questions quickly. They had a great list of music, we chose contemporary for our wedding. They were on time, music was the perfect volume, I have no criticism!
