"There are so many details when planning a wedding, especially when you're on the far side of the country. Chris and Agniezka were the easiest to work with and the end result was wonderful. With all the hustle and bustle of the wedding day, it was so calming to hear their lovely music come in through the open windows in the dressing room at Skytop. Music sets the atmosphere, and they created a wonderful ambiance for the wedding and on through the cocktail hour. We can't thank you enough for making Alison and John's wedding day such a wonderful event. I would highly recommend the Pennsylvania String Ensemble for any special event."

Sincerely,
Barb Beck, Mother of the Bride, Scottsdale, AZ

"The Pennsylvania String Ensemble was a wonderful addition to our ceremony and cocktail hour. It was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding. They went the extra mile to learn "The Irish Wedding Song" for our ceremony, which was a huge hit. They were fun to work with; there is nothing better than working with people who have a true passion for what they do. Their joy is contagious! Chris and Agnieszka were a pleasure to meet and we certainly would not hesitate to use their talents again. The music was beautiful and really added to our special day."

"Dear Pennsylvania Strings,
I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciated the beautiful music you provided for Rebecca's wedding ... Beginning with our first meeting, in which you gave us so much of your time to play musical selections for Rebecca and John, I knew you were going to be a wonderful part of their wedding day. I was so impressed that you were eager to learn new selections, such as 'Bittersweet Symphony' and 'Come What May,' both of which added so much to the ceremony, making it very personal for the happy couple. When I think back on that brilliant day of sunshine, my feeling is that everything was perfect; your music played such an integral role in making it that way ... We were impressed by your virtuosity, generosity, good humor, and professionalism. We wish all of you the very best as you continue to make music that makes others joyful!"

"I recently had the honor of meeting and working with Penn Strings. As a vocal soloist, rehearsing with them instantly put me at ease. They were relaxed and the music flowed from them so easily. When I wasn't singing and was able to enjoy the wedding as a guest, the music was just amazing. At a cocktail hour, you don't normally see people able to dance to string music ... but with Penn Strings we could ... and did! It was a pleasure to meet Chris and Agnieszka, and a great honor to be able to make music with them."
            -- Amanda Siebold, Philadelphia, PA

"Your performance at both our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour was amazing. It set such a wonderful mood and everyone was very impressed. It was always my dream to have strings play at my wedding ... After meeting with you and Aggie and listening to you perform I couldn't wait to hear you play on my wedding day! If anyone is considering having strings I would highly recommend the both of you. I love that the listener can tell how much you both love to play and that it is not just another job or another wedding. Thank you again so much!!!"
