Mr. Radhi Santos and his quartet provided an out standing performance for our 4th annual awards banquet where we had nearly 200 guests in attendance. His quartet arrived promptly and was ready to perform when our event started. The String Poets added the polish to our event that helped put it over the top. Many guests commented on the quality of their performance and the value that it added to the ambiance of the evening. We will certainly be contacting String Poets for our event next year.

We had the String Poets play at our Catholic ceremony and their music was beautiful! The whole day was a big blur but I knew that the music was great after all of our guests asked about them and complimented them. Then when we watched our video - we again saw how wonderful they were! Highly recommend and Radhi was Super easy to work with!

Radhi & Company, Kelly and I wanted to offer another word of heartfelt thanks to you guys. We were so pleased with the role (and great music) you played at our wedding celebration last weekend! You helped make it an unforgettable weekend. We will of course recommend you to anyone who asks and we hope we can attend an event in the future that features the String Poets! Our thanks, Dan & Kelly

I just wanted to send a quick email to thank The Wedding String Quartet for the wonderful job you did at my daughter Sarah’s wedding at the Baltimore Basilica Saturday. It sounded so wonderful and made the wedding even more special. So many of our guests commented on the beautiful music. I was glad our wedding planner Elle knew about you! Thanks again!

I could not have been more pleased with the String Poets Quartet! They sounded beautiful, were professional, and they were extremely grateful to have been a part of the ceremony. I had quite a few special request and they performed them above and beyond what I could have ever expected!

Radhi, I cannot thank you and your colleagues enough for the beautiful music at Sarah's wedding. When I had my final review with the owner, Mark Lynch, I urged him to add The Wedding String Quartet to their list of preferred vendors -- so I hope he does follow through. My husband still raves about how beautifully played the two musical interludes were (Puccini & Bernstein) and we had many friends at the wedding who are serious chamber music loves and they could not stop talking about the music -- with thanks, Gerry Otremba

From the first time I contacted Radhi Santos from The Wedding String Quartet, he was confident and enthusiastic about performing the ceremony and cocktail hour music for our wedding. He listened to what I wanted the atmosphere to be like, and suggested music to create the happy environment I wanted. Radhi was responsive, super professional, and the trio that played at the wedding sounded incredible. When I think back on my wedding day, one of the things I actually remember is the music String Poets was playing. It was nice not having to worry about this part of the wedding; completely worth it!

I would like you to know how much I appreciated The Wedding String Quartet  braving the wind and the cold to make my ceremony perfect. My guests loved the music and said you guys were awesome. Thank you so much for being prompt, responsive, and excellent musicians!

Thank you all very much for a wonderful performance at our wedding! Your professionalism, timing and etiquette were above reproach. I am just sorry that I wasn't able to enjoy every minute:) As the bride, I was a little busy getting ready and posing for an endless string of photographs. My new husband and I were very, very pleased. Please let all of the musicians know that they were an integral and enjoyable part of our wedding. All the best, Jenn and Bernie

The Wedding String Quartet set the tone for the entire wedding with their beautiful music and tone. I am a professional musician and I was very particular with the music for my son's wedding. Radhi Santos was excellent to work with and impressed my son's fiance with the time that he spent with her planning songs for the ceremony. I would highly recommend String Poets to anyone. The group is made up of professional musicians who perform as principals with major area orchestras. They are highly trained and take pride in their work. Thank you String Poets for making my son and daughter in law's wedding such a beautiful occasion.

"My daughter's wedding was planned in only three months. The String Poets (and their lead, Radhi Santos) were a dream to work with on repertory. The musical quality of the quartet is outstanding. Friends who regularly attend world-class concerts praised their talent and overall performance. You will be delighted to have them play for you at any occasion. "
