  • They were wonderful and having some background music as people were arriving and getting seated was really nice. They added a lot of intimacy to the ceremony and were AMAZING!

  • We were honored to have the Melegari Chamber Players provide the music for both my mother and father's memorial services. The artistic excellence that they so generously shared was outstanding. At the reception, individuals repeatedly commented on the uplifting power and spiritual connection the music provided. On both occasions they patiently worked with us to determine the musical selections, as our parents had very different music backgrounds. Thank you, Paloma, and Chamber Players for your inspirational contribution to the services!

  • They Melegari Chamber Players were the perfect addition to our wedding ceremony of 200 people. They were open to playing the songs we requested as well as playing outside though we ultimately kept everything inside. The sounds was beautiful. The people were very easy to work with. Would definitely use again and recommend to others.

  • Paloma, Sarah and the entire Melegari Chamber Players were just a pleasure to work with from day one. Music was a very important piece to my groom and I and they went above and beyond to make our dream a reality. The composed and learned 2 new compositions for our ceremony that were really important to us. They worked great with our other musicians (pianist, vocalist) and were very low maintenance in terms of what they needed from us. Sarah, who I spoke most directly too was a wonderful person who authentically cares about making the day what the couple has dreamed of. Melegari Chamber Players music blew all of our guests away including the bride and groom! We have gotten so many complements about our ceremony and a huge portion of them are about the music, they all did such a beautiful job seething the tone and mood of the day, it was just magical. I cant say enough wonderful things and would absolutely recommend them to a friend!

  • I couldn't imagine a wedding ceremony without live music. I was so glad we hired Melegari for my daughter's wedding to play during the ceremony and the cocktail hour afterwards. They are so professional, the playing was beautiful. Without any rehearsal it all worked so seamlessly and added such an important touch to the service. I only wish I wasn't the mother-of-the-bride and had had a little more time to stand back and just listen.

  • Melegari Chambers Players were awesome. My partner and I hired them to play at our wedding at our house. We hired a cellist and violinist for two hours. Ashley Peck was the one we worked with, and she was excellent. She was very responsive and flexible. I would highly recommend them!

  • Melegari Chamber Players performed for our August wedding. They were wonderful to work with. They worked closely with me on the music I wanted. Later, they were very flexible when we added a singer and more songs for the ceremony. They were willing to spend the extra rehearsal time these changes required. They were very professional. On the day of our wedding, they arrived early to set up. They stayed after the ceremony for photos. Their music was lovely. My husband and I received many compliments about them. My husband and I highly recommend Melegari Chamber Players.

  • We were so happy with the quality of music the Melegari string quartet provided for our daughter's wedding reception (2 hours). They really created a magical atmosphere that made our guests want to stay and enjoy the music with us. They were prompt, professional, and friendly to work with. We look forward to having them play for us again at some future event. Melegari music is worth every cent! :)

    Thanks so much, Julie! We hope to work with you again as well. Cheers!

  • Melegari performed at the Oregon Symphony Honors gala fundraiser on April 16 at the Portland Art Museum. Sarah chose musical selections that were perfect as guests were coming in for dinner. They were so wonderful to work with and they helped make the evening a success!

  • The Melegari Players were the highlight of the Finlandia Foundation Columbia-Pacific Chapter's (FFCPC) Annual Program celebrating the 150th Anniversary of Jean Sibelius. They masterfully played several pieces by Sibelius, and the 72 people in attendance wished they had time to hear more of their playing. I enjoyed listening to these talented and friendly musicians, and I hope we have the opportunity to invite them again. The Players were also flexible because they had to adjust their performance a little because the program was running just a little behind schedule. -Greg Jacob, President, FFCPC

  • Paloma and Sarah's playing added a magical element to our Champagne Dinners. The room where the dinners were staged was an old Portland industrial building that had been opened up to yield a space that reminded us of a European monastic church. The music enhanced that feeling. All our guests commented on the beautiful playing and how much it added to the evening. We'll definitely be using the Melegari Chamber Players for future events.

  • The Melegari Chamber Players provided a string quartet for our daughters wedding in September. They played so beautifully during the ceremony, as well as before and after. Additionally, we had requested a piece my daughter was very fond of, which they made a special arrangement of to be played during her procession - it was superb! They were a marvelous quartet and added to the specialness of the occasion!

  • We were very happy with the service provided by the Melegari Chamber players. Both Paloma and Ashley were so helpful with music choices, and always responded quickly to my questions. They were so flexible the day of, as our daughter's wedding was literally in a field, and the place we had planned for them to be was not going to be shaded enough. They quickly found an alternate place to set up, worked efficiently with our wedding planner, and provided absolutely beautiful music. I would absolutely use them again, and would highly recommend them.

  • The Melegari Chamber Players played prelude and postlude music to both of our Christmas Services at church. They were very professional and chose tasteful Christmas hymns. They were very easy to work with and provided the atmosphere we were hoping they would. They had several options for string combinations and packages that would accommodate our needs. We would definitely hire them again.

  • Paloma and Dylan were a pleasure and as far as I could tell played all the notes right! Seriously, I would not hesitate in hiring them, or some other combination of instrumentalists from Melegari, other than for money reasons. I am not suggesting that the fee was unreasonable, just that I have to consider its affordability .They were/are excellent musicians. Also, they seemed to enjoy the festivities and even did pizzicato along with a pop duo. They agreed to add a piece not on the group's standard list; it turned out that adapting it for violin-cello was simple enough to avoid charging extra. And, they were able to transition smoothly from one piece to another when wedding events dictated it. I would be glad to provide more details to anyone who wants to know more.
