"Stephanie was an incredible solo violinist and handled every curve ball we threw at her, playing pieces she had never before played and fulfilling all the Bride's requests. She was as professional as she could be and, more than that, she had an intuitive feeling for the spirit of the occasion and just flat out knocked it out of the park. She contributed so much to the success of the event with feeling and sensitivity. If you are looking for a top flight musician for your event, do not hesitate to use her, she is the answer to your needs. Thank you Stephanie, we are fans!"

"I hired Stephanie Quinn, leader of Quintessential Strings, for my father's memorial service. I was incredibly impressed from start to finish. Stephanie was responsive and so easy to work with. I especially appreciated that she was as comfortable with me choosing musical selections as with giving suggestions. We chatted a bit about my father and the tone of the event, and then she emailed me wonderful ideas for music that gave the ceremony a warm, personal touch. The musicians were on time, impeccably dressed and played beautifully. All of the guests commented on how wonderful the music was. I was very grateful and would definitely hire them again."
