  • I had the opportunity to work with Synchronicity Strings many times prior to being engaged, and it was a no-brainer that we would have them play at our wedding when the time rolled around! We wanted to set the tone of an elegant wine country wedding, but not too stuffy, and the quartet definitely achieved that for us by playing all contemporary music. Our guests were also able to recognize the songs they were playing, which they thought was super cool! Everything on the day-of was perfect, and Rachel is so amazing to work with during the planning process. She can help with song suggestions if you need some guidance, and she can even write an arrangement for you if the song you're looking for isn't on her repertoire list (for a minimal fee). She did this for my processional down the aisle, and it was just perfect. I highly recommend Rachel & Synchronicity Strings for your string ensemble needs - you will not regret it! :)

  • I found synchronicity strings on wedding wire. After checking out their website and watching a few of the performance online, I knew that they would be perfect for our wedding. I sent Rachel an email and she got back to me right away - this is something that I really appreciated. On the application, we were asked to provide what songs that we would like played and Rachel ensured that they would...and of course they were - just beautifully by the way! My cousin also sang during the wedding. I asked Rachel if she could sing with the quartet and Rachel provided her with a recording in advance, so she was prepared. When I started to walk down the aisle with my parents and heard them play "Over the rainbow" my face lit up with a huge smile - and of course, seeing my husband up there also made me smile!! The music brought many of the guests to happy tears - the quartet's memorable music went perfect with the ceremony space on the observation deck over looking the lush vineyard! We will reme...

  • We hired a trio for our ceremony and cocktail hour and they were fantastic. We requested that they learn 2 songs to what was already in their repertoire for our processional and recessional which they did easily and for minimal additional cost. They put a fun spin on some top 40 hits and were very professional the entire time. The booking process was simple and quick. Would highly recommend.

  • We hired a string quartet from Synchronicity Strings for our wedding at Elizabeth Gamble Garden in Palo Alto. Rachel was easy to work with, and the quartet did an amazing job! The music was flawless, and we had a lot of compliments from our guests. They have a very large repertoire, so we were able to have a good variety of music. For the ceremony, they played a range of traditional classical music. For the cocktail hour, they played classic rocks hits from The Beatles, Elton John, Journey, etc. We really enjoyed the music and would absolutely hire them again.

  • Synchronicity strings provided ceremony music for my wedding in downtown San Francsico at the Ritz. We were so happy with the them! We paid for 1.5 hours for pre-ceremony and ceremony music. The music was excellent. Before the wedding, I was sent a list of all the music they played with great suggestions. I looked through the entire list and picked out the songs I wanted them to play, which they did! We mostly chose modern songs for the pre ceremony music which sounded great and classic Jewish songs for the ceremony (so beautiful). I was really happy with their service and would definitely recommend Synchronicity strings to any of my friends! They were fantastic. You won't regret it!

  • Synchronicity Strings was the number one vendor we had to have for our wedding, and oh my goodness was it the best decision ever. My only regret is that I didn't get to enjoy the pre-ceremony music, being the bride and all! We also had them play at our cocktail hour, which thanks to my planner and photographer we were able to enjoy with our guests! I could have listened to them all night! So lovely and entertaining. Rachel was super easy to communicate with and was always available when I had questions!

  • We LOVED our experience with Synchronicity Strings! They looked and sounded amazing at our wedding. We had them play for our ceremony and cocktail hour and they did such an artful and perfect mix of some classical for the ceremony and more upbeat and beautifully played modern songs for the cocktail hour. My husband and I were so excited to have them play and we were so delighted by the ambiance they created for our special day. And, they were a HIT with our guests: More than our flowers, or cake, or etc, etc, our guests kept saying how incredible Synchronicity Strings was ... from our younger friends to our older relatives - they were a winner! And on top of all this, they looked the part. From start to finish, the experience working with them was professional, polished and oh boy they are very talented. We recommend them whole-heartedly!

  • I have hired Synchronicity Strings five times over the past 3 months for various events that I have produced throughout California. They are reliable, professional, and wickedly talented. No matter your audience, Synchronicity Strings will be able to entertain. I HIGHLY recommend Synchronicity Strings for your next event.

  • I got married this past weekend at Shakespeare Garden and commissioned Synchronicity Strings to perform during our ceremony. While Rachel manages her team, the trio that came out to perform was spectacular! Rachel is a complete professional - we mainly communicated over email and finalized our plans over the phone a couple weeks before the wedding date. We had Rachel arrange 2 pieces for us (processional and recessional) and the trio was amazing when they performed it! She also has quite a list of songs already that you can choose from, so it was basically seamless! I'd highly recommend Synchronicity Strings for your event; they sounded beautiful and guests were complimenting how great they sounded throughout the day!

  • I know that most people who look at this will be looking to hire Rachel and her wonderful team of musicians for some sort of an event. I approached Synchronicity Strings for something a little different. I composed a string quartet and wanted it recorded. They were fantastic. Rachel was a pleasure to work with and her group was so talented. I recommend them to anyone who may need strings for a recording session or live event. Rachel is an excellent arranger and will work with you until you are 100% satisfied. I am not good at writing reviews, so I will just copy and paste my "thank you" email to Rachel, so you get the idea of how happy I was with their services: Hi Rachel, I just wanted to say thank you for setting up today's session. The musicians were awesome. I could not have been happier with how it went. Other than a little technical difficulty on our end, it went perfectly. And they were a lot of fun too. I really appreciate the enthusiasm they put into the session. I rea... Read more

  • Outstanding! We were absolutely delighted to have the beautiful music from the Synchronicity Trio at our wedding last month at the Jefferson Street Mansion in Benicia. I first heard Synchronicity at a wedding as a wedding guest several years ago and knew that I would want them for my own wedding. Having live classical music at the ceremony and for the reception was just magical. Highly recommended in every way! Thanks Rachael and Synchronicity!! Janet & Brian

  • Synchronicity Strings did a fantastic job at our wedding and Rachel was easy to work with. They learned a difficult song for our ceremony and played it beautifully. For the cocktail hour they played from their long selection of pop and rock hits and our guests loved it. Along with the great music, they dressed well, were on time and read the sheet music off of iPads on stands (a pretty cool touch that many people commented on, very sleak). We definitely recommend Synchrostrings.
