  • We hired a string duo to play classical music at our wedding. They played during our pre-ceremony, and cocktail hour and set such an elegant tone to the wedding. The booking process was smooth on their website, and you get to contact the lead musician personally to go over any details for the performance. The price was very reasonable for the performance.

    Thank you very much, Sarah! It was wonderful to work with you, and I am so happy to hear that our musicians helped to make your day extra special!

  • I was only briefly able to listen to the musicians we hired for our cocktail hour through SFCM since I was stuck taking wedding pictures but I heard from our guests that they were wonderful. My father especially said it was one of his favorite memories of the evening. They were a pleasure to work with and their set list matched exactly the type of songs I wanted. Such a great value and I am really pleased that we were able to hire these students for our big day!

    Thank you very much for the wonderful review! We hope to be able to work with you for any future musical needs!

  • I really enjoyed working with the SF Conservatory for my wedding! I'm a professional classical musician myself, so I had high expectations for the performance, and the students absolutely delivered. The conservatory liason was easy to work with and the string quartet I hired was on time, prepared, and professional. For the quality of live music I don't think you can get a much better deal than to hire from here!

    Thank you, Rani, for choosing to work with our students! Working with you was a lovely process, and we appreciate your kind feedback. We hope to work together for any musical needs you may have in the future.

  • We had a string quartet for the ceremony, and a jazz trio for cocktail hour and both groups were great! Professional, on time, and played well. They set a perfect vibe :D I think it's also GREAT that these kids are students, and this is some extra $$ for them.

  • We hired a string trio from Music To Go for our June wedding and they were great! Erin K. was our group leader and she was very helpful - I wasn’t able to meet with her or the other trio members in person because I was living out of town, but we planned all the ceremony music over phone/email and she was always extremely responsive. Just a week before the wedding, my husband had a special request for the song he wanted himself & the groomsmen to walk in to, and the trio happily accommodated it. The day of the wedding, the trio played for 30 min before the ceremony, played walk-in music during the ceremony, and then played both classical and cocktail music during the cocktail hour. The ceremony music was beautiful - and most importantly for me, the tempo of the song I walked in to was perfect. I didn’t get to hear the cocktail hour music, but I’ve heard rave reviews from friends who said it made for a great ambiance.

  • I loved working with Music to Go... I had a musician lined up who bailed at the last minute and Music to Go totally came in and saved the day. Our musicians were so talented... Music to Go prioritized student performers but due to a concert at the conservatory all their student musicians were busy so they connected us with working graduates who were super talented. Their above and beyond was that they were able to coordinate with a friend to preform a base line to a song she sung for the ceremony which did not have a written score, our musicians worked with her to write a score to accompany her just a few days before the wedding. They were great and accommodating and professional...

  • We actually used Music to Go for our cocktail hour. We hired a string trio. They were excellent, and a great value. The only (very small) negative--if you want music other than what's on their play list they charge a hefty price, but they have a lot of great stuff on the play list already, and it's really just background music so you probably won't notice anyway.

  • Great way to have affordable live music. We had a jazz trio play during our ceremony and cocktail hour (guitar, bass, trumpet). After you go through the booking agent at the school you can actually talk directly to the musicians who had great suggestions and were really reliable.

  • My husband and I hired a string trio from Music to go! for our wedding in January 2009. Because the musicians are students, we did not really have a chance to meet before the wedding to go over the music details, which some people may feel nervous about. We normally exchanged emails. There was one time that I did not get a response from a group leader for a week so I had to make a call to confirm if my song selection was okay. I ended up choosing several songs and left the rest up to the group to decide. I was not concerned with the level of their performance considering they all go to music school, but they turned out even better than I had expected! Musicians can be very costly, but the rate at Music to go! was very very reasonable. My friend who is getting married this month (Feb 2009) decided to hire them, too. Highly recommended!

  • We had a string trio for our ceremony and reception. The day of the wedding, the musicians arrived on time and played the songs we chose beautifully. We did have problems communicating with the student contact to plan the details before the wedding. For example, our contact took more than a week to respond to an important email, and only after we made repeated attempts by email and phone to contact her. Although it turned out fine in the end, planning the music turned out much more stressful than anticipated due to their poor responsiveness. I understand they are students and still learning the business, but they need to be more professional about their responsibilities.

  • Great alternative to use SF music conservatory students for ceremony and cocktail music instead of more established musicians. They played a nice range of classical music wonderfully.
