  • Sage String Quartet played for our wedding ceremony and reception. They have a huge repertoire of traditional and contemporary pieces and really added a perfect touch to the whole day.

  • If you are looking for an elegant live band to give your wedding ceremony an additional pop, then look no further! Sage has an offering of hundreds of songs to choose from that can be played either pre-ceremony or during your cocktail hour and each song is guaranteed to wow your guests. The individuals we interacted with at Sage were all true professionals who showed up early for our ceremony and interacted easily with our wedding planner and wedding team. The music they played for us was absolutely beautiful and were some of the high points of our pre-ceremony and cocktail hour events. We highly recommend booking Sage for any wedding or event!

  • Let me just say at the outset - if you want the best possible ensemble for your ceremony or event, save your time and look no further - Sage is simply the best!! My relationship with Sage (as "father of the groom" and fellow musician), began from long-distance approximately eleven months before the wedding ceremony, and with some very specific musical ideas in mind - to the point where we had some special arrangements created which would require world-class musicians. Needless to say, everything was absolutely perfect and turned out incredibly - Sage delivered far beyond expectations! Kyung LeBlanc (whom I now call a friend), was the most pleasant, accommodating, and professional individual you would ever want associated with a once in a lifetime musical performance. Their ceremony performance (which we made sure was professionally recorded and captured) was total perfection, and the most moving and emotional experience that we could have ever asked for. Our guests will never for... Read more

  • Sage String Quartet provided exceptional string accompaniment for our ceremony. They were super easy to communicate with and helped with song recommendations when asked. Many of our guests gushed over how gorgeous the music was!

  • Wow! Working with Sage for our wedding far exceeded our expectations! First, working with Kyung and Sean was SO EASY. They were both extremely communicative and helped us craft exactly what we wanted for our event, including sourcing a new piece for their string repertoire (a somewhat obscure French song that we happen to love). We hired Sage to do a string quartet for our ceremony and a jazz trio during our cocktail hour. Both sets of musicians were extremely talented and our guests were entertained the whole time! Our only regret is that we didn't get to spend more time listening to their beautiful music. We can't recommend Sage enough to anyone looking to bring high-quality live music to their wedding day!

  • Sage String Quartet is simply the best special-occasion live string ensemble operating in the Delmarva area, and maybe the entire East Coast. They played at our wedding in June at River Farm in Alexandria, and were simply perfect. We chose Sage primarily on the basis of their top-flight musicianship, the passion and pizzazz they breathe into each piece and their extensive song library. Listen to one of their high-quality videos and you'll see what I mean. They blew the other quartets away. Preparation was painless: fill out a questionnaire and pick your songs. Sean Neidlinger manages the group and is their cellist. He is a joy to work with: professional, responsive and super helpful. Their website is easy to use, and contracting was a breeze. Sage's song library is a mile wide and a mile deep -- everything from classical standards to jazz greats and pop gems -- even some awesome metal tunes in there. How many string quartets do you know of that can pull off Schubert and Sigur... Read more

  • We hired a cellist for our ceremony from Sage String Quartet, and they were such an easy vendor to work with. They coordinated directly with the church music director for us, and were able to tailor music to the instruments to make a beautiful ceremony. They were also just so open and helpful when we were trying to figure out what instruments to have (a full quartet was out of our price range, but we really wanted some strings). The cellist played beautifully at the ceremony, and all the music coordination went pretty seamlessly.

  • We had Sage String Quartet play at our daughter’s wedding. From start to finish they were professional, responsive, and most importantly great musicians. Despite the heat of an early July afternoon at Stone Tower Winery, they were great, playing all the songs from their repertoire as well as specific ones we had selected. They played outside and then inside for the cocktail hour. A beautiful performance by a fantastic group. Thanks!

  • We hired Sage for a guitar/violin duo for our ceremony and cocktail hour and the quartet for our reception. All of the music was wonderful and our guests really enjoyed this change of pace from the typical loud reception music. They played a great variety of songs, and working with Kyung before the event was so easy. She even recommended other vendors for us, which was so appreciated. I highly recommend them!

  • We hired the Sage Jazz Trio with sax, keys, bass. This group's staff (I emailed and spoke with Sean) is one of the best teams I communicated with while wedding planning. My questions were always answered clearly, he called ME to make sure things were squared away in the weeks ahead (not vice versa, as was usually the case), and had some really good ideas for things when I wasn't sure on song selection or instrumentation. On the actual day, the musicians were great and entirely self-sufficient (and talented!). I didn't need to think about them or their set-up at all, and everyone enjoyed the music. Thank you!

  • Sage was the very first vendor we booked for our wedding this past weekend, and we waited eagerly all year to get to hear them after obsessively listening to their entire library of samples over and over during the planning process. They more than delivered with absolutely gorgeous music for our ceremony and cocktail hour, playing a mix of classic wedding songs, pop hits, and video game music that our guests raved about!! (A friend currently planning her own wedding requested their contact info the next day because she wanted to hire them, too!) They were super responsive and friendly and made the planning process very easy. Enormous song library and incredible talent -- can't recommend them enough!!!

  • We worked with Sage Quartet for the ceremony and cocktail hour music for our wedding. They were great throughout the process and did a spectacular job on our wedding day! They have a large catalog of songs from which we were able to choose and kept a professional appearance throughout the ceremony and cocktail hour. We chose more classical music for our ceremony but then mixed in some more contemporary music during the cocktail hour. The musical quality of their performance of both was excellent. We highly recommend them for any wedding or major event you are planning.

  • I come from a family of professional musicians including violinists so it was important to me that I had a fabulous string quartet for my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Sage delivered and then some, they did not disappoint! All of my guests commented on how beautiful they sounded, including my very discerning family members! They were prompt and professional, played all the music that we requested (which was mostly pop/rock - they have an extensive repertoire!) and sounded absolutely amazing. Thank you Sage!
