"Pacific Strings is AWESOME. I'm an event planner on the peninsula that had a four day wedding and they were one of 22 vendors that I had to deal with. They were so accommodating about the playlist and listened carefully to the bride and her mother about the songs and needs for the feel of the ceremony. They did EVERYTHING they said they would, arrived exactly ontime, played exactly what was asked of them and were unobtrusive during the pre-wedding seating time for this outdoor garden wedding. They followed my timing directions during the ceremony flawlessly. I can't say enough good things about them!"

        — Jeffrey, event planner, Menlo Park

"Thanks so much for playing so beautifully. Many guests commented how your music nicely set the tone for the ceremony."

        — Carly, St. Christopher Church, San Jose

It has been a pleasure working with you, and I'm eager for some of my Bay Area friends to get engaged so that I can recommend you to them.  I wish I had another excuse to hire you; I'll have to come up with one ... I especially appreciated all of the time you spent talking to me beforehand about the music selections ... for me, the personalized touch made all the difference!"

"Pacific Strings played at the End-of-Year celebration at The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation on December 20, 2006.  They were excellent.  They arrived well in advance of the performance and were ready to play at the appointed time.  Their song selections were perfect.  They mixed some holiday classics in with their more classical pieces.  Their music reflected their energy and positive attitude.  Everyone in the crowd commented on their professionalism and great sound.  They definitely made the event more enjoyable and festive.  I would certainly hire them again."

"And in the movement from Dvorak’s String Quartet No. 12 in F Major, Op. 96, the quartet showed it is talent to reckon with. Composed of violinists Karen Lindblom and DalRae Murray, violist Mary Bormann and cellist Kjell Stenberg, it has the best sound I have heard since the Ives Quartet—and that is saying something."
