The Festival String Quartet was absolutely exceptional in providing the ceremony music for our wedding! Douglas was quick and easy to work with and also helped in song selections for what would best fit what we were looking for. We could not have been more pleased!

My husband and I hired The string trio for our wedding ceremony and cocktail reception over Labor Day weekend and it was a great decision. Douglas, who runs the business was super nice and very responsive throughout the planning process. He also plays the violin and was our contact in the trio. He totally set us at ease and made the process of hiring musicians easy.

On the day of the wedding, the violin/cello duo showed up on time dressed professionally in black even though it was 30 degrees out! Everyone who heard them play loved the string music and walking down the aisle to Cannon in D made my day. After the wedding, we took pictures while the rest of our guests attended the cocktail reception so we didn’t get to hear the music. To make up for this the duo came back to play “All I Ask Of You” from Phantom for my husband (which is one of his favourites) before they wrapped. It was a great surprise that both my husband and I both enjoyed it. Thank you again Classical Sounds.

I used the services of Classical Sounds for my Wedding and it was perfect! I got so many compliments on how beautiful the solo violin was and it definitely added that special something to my ceremony. I corresponded with Douglas to book the soloist and he was awesome. Very polite, organized, and eager to help which is very helpful when you are an OCD bride like I was (lol). I would highly recommend Classical Sounds for your wedding or next event! I know I’ll be back to use them for my baby shower 🙂

I played flute in high school and really wanted there to be a flute played at my wedding. Classical Sounds was able to provide a beautiful flute/violin/cello trio for our wedding last weekend at the Chateau Laurier Hotel and they were awesome! Douglas (the violinist) was such a sweetheart and responded very fast to any questions or concerns that we had. Everyone looked great and played beautifully. I just wish I was able to enjoy it more but I was busy running around =) THANK YOU to Classical Sounds for a wonderful experience =)

The harp and violin duo was amazing! They played beautifully, were very professional, and a complete pleasure to work with. My guests were very happy and I was relieved that I was able to list a few songs I wanted them to play – and then sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Douglas was a solo violinist for our wedding. He did a terrific job. He played beautifully! If I have another event, I would hire him again in a heartbeat. He was also so easy and helpful to deal and book stuff with. He made everything easy during the stressful wedding process. I also liked that the response turn around time. It shows true professionalism.

The piano/violin duo is wonderful! I hired them for my wedding. They did a great job. They are very professional. They even played Chinese songs for my wedding. All my guests enjoyed the beautiful music. I like the performance and the manager of the Classical Sounds is very patient and nice. I just gave him a list and schedule. Then he took care of everything. Definitely recommend them.

Douglas and his team were so on top of it! Booking and negotiating we’re a breeze. We had some particular requests, and Douglas was more than accommodating. He was literally available to answer questions night or day. The music ended up being beautiful and exactly as we imagined. No wonder this team is number 1!

I was first introduced to the string players at Classical Sounds when they played a huge part in my engagement surprise one year ago. Since the first encounter, my fiancé and I continued to stay in contact with them and eventually hired them to play at our wedding in June. The whole team is delightful to work with. Douglas is extremely professional, super organized, really responsive and always friendly–in fact, he treats us like family and my husband and I feel like we’ve known him and the team for years.

The violinist and cellist were amazing. We had Doug and Joan play for both our engagement and our wedding and they are incredibly talented. They’re both very approachable, love what they do and you can see that when they play. They light up the room not only with their music but with their smiles. Classical Sounds really went above and beyond at our wedding, playing overtime before and after their hired session, and they made our ceremony simply unforgettable. We cannot thank them enough for their amazing service! We welcome every opportunity to work with them again in the future.

Douglas and his team of extremely talented musicians provided the music for our wedding cocktail hour and reception. My wonderful experience with this company started off with just one email inquiry and within minutes Douglas responded and the in-person meeting was set. Both my husband and I were not too familiar with quartets or trios and Douglas patiently walked us through the whole experience. Their song list was diverse and we enjoyed every piece that was played by this amazing team! The quartet arrived professionally dressed, ahead of schedule and I was warmly greeted by Doug on the day of the wedding. As a frantic couple who ran around the whole day preparing for the reception, it was truly soothing to our souls to hear the quartet play! I can’t emphasize how much I appreciate this company’s professionalism, extreme talent and friendliness. Thank Classical Sounds for being such an important part of our wedding!

This is a long-overdue post. Douglas and the team were amazing. Quick responses, fair prices, and extremely patient with me. I was so late in giving him my wedding songs and he did not complain once. I was overwhelmed with work and school and wedding planning and Douglas was so helpful and understanding. The flute and harp duo arrived on time. They were sweet and the music was great! I’m so happy we used them 🙂 Live music is such a nice touch.

10 stars for Classical Sounds!! Douglas is a “fast responder” to both Text and email. My wedding guests enjoyed the violin and cello combo that played during my ceremony and cocktail hour at the Westin. They have a wide variety of selection and even if I have a foreign song, they accommodated my request and learned it. I was too busy with pictorials that I wasn’t able to hear everything they played but my guests raved about them all night and have asked to be referred to them. They have competitive rates! I gladly, 100% recommend Classical Sounds! Look forward to hiring you again on another event!
