  • We chose the string quartet for our Catholic wedding in the Fort Myer Old Post Chapel and WOW!! My heart was overwhelmed with how incredible they sounded and how this beautiful music absolutely made our ceremony extra special and unique! I actually paused for an extra second before walking down the aisle so I could take in the absolute beauty of what I was hearing. THANK YOU Washington Virtuosi for making my lifelong dream of having a string quartet at my wedding come true in the most beautiful way. We also had the quartet play for our cocktail hour at the Fort McNair officers club, which included a completely different mix of music that was incredible! My guests STILL rave about all of the music! Communication was also very easy, friendly, and quick. A delight to work with and highly recommended!

  • We hired Washington Virtuosi for our ceremony and reception music. My husband and I are more traditional and didn't want to have a loud DJ at our wedding, we wanted something more classic. When we heard clips of Washington Virtuosi's music we knew we had to hire them! They did an absolutely wonderful job, our guests loved them and we received SO many compliments throughout the night. They played current songs for us along with classical music, like our first dance song, "A Thousand Years" as well as other favorites of ours. They were very accommodating and so professional. I have a special needs brother who requested to play a Christmas song at the reception which they were able to do---right on the spot! That really touched my heart and is something I will never forget. I would definitely recommend Washington Virtuosi for anyone thinking about hiring a string quartet!

  • I could not be happier with the excellent performances by Peter Kiral and the Washington Virtuosi. The Washington Virtuosi performed at our wedding and played six hours of music throughout the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, creating a magnificent ambiance. They played a beautiful selection of classical, baroque, and chamber pieces playfully interspersed with current pieces arranged for string quartet. They were also able to quickly learn and perform some more obscure pieces of music we requested that were not part of the usual wedding repertoire. I and everyone in attendance were very, very impressed. In short, hire them, they are the best.

  • We had a great experience with Peter and Washington Virtuosi. We had a string triplet perform the ceremony music and music for the cocktail hour at our wedding. They were great and easily played our traditional wedding music, plus contemporary pieces for the cocktail hour. They were a lot of fun and sounded great! They were super easy to work with as well!!

  • I can't tell you how much we enjoyed this string quartet! They played all the songs we requested at just the right time. Their sound and look turned out to be exactly what we were hoping for. They played during the ceremony and cocktail hour. We could have listened to them all night! Thank you for making our daughter's special day even more memorable!

  • Washington Virtuosi played during my daughters wedding ceremony and also at the cocktail hour before the reception began. It added light soft ambiance to the ceremony as well as the cocktail hour. Our guests were able to visit without loud background noise, which can be annoying. I would highly recommend Washington Virtuosi to play at your event. We planned this wedding from California all online, & Peter made it very easy for me.

  • Washington Virtuosi were the most perfect musicians ever to work with!!! Peter and his team were BEYOND responsive, helpful with song selections, and accommodating. They were the best crew to work with from beginning to end. I had their string trio play music for my ceremony and contemporary strings for my cocktail hour and it was the most phenomenal music!! They added so much class and elegance to my Ronald Reagan Building wedding and completely achieved the feel I was going for. I can't thank this group enough!!! If I ever have an event needing strings in the future I will hands down be calling this crew!!!!

  • Peter was fantastic to work with! He took care of all the music needs for our wedding, from the awesome gypsy jazz duo during our cocktail hour to the DJ during the reception afterwards. But the string trio during the ceremony really made the event for me! I would highly recommend Washington Virtuosi to anyone who wants a professionally organized event.

  • We chose to have the bluegrass/Americana band the Cattle in the Cane for our May wedding ceremony and reception and THEY WERE AWESOME!! Emailing the manager, Peter, throughout the process was very pleasant and he responded very quickly to all of my emails. We were nervous at first because we had never heard the band live before, only clips online, but were blown away at our choice when the big day arrived!! We even had guests at our wedding ask how to book them for their wedding:)

  • We had a violin and piano duet that were absolutely amazing. Incredible sound and super professional. They even played for an extra hour at the crowds request. They played all the classics as well as Coldplay and Sweet Child O' Mine when the occasion called for it. Would highly recommend them for any occasion.

  • When my friend, a well known conductor, recommended the Washington Virtuosi for my daughter's wedding, I knew they would be great. And they were amazing! The string trio's performance was excellent during the wedding ceremony. Peter Kiral, the manager of the group, also suggested that I book their jazz guitar duo to perform during our wedding reception. All of the musicians did an amazing job and we are delighted they were part of our big day. I highly recommend the Washington Virtuosi to every future bride!

  • We were so happy that we selected Washington Virtuosi to play music for our ceremony. We had certain classical pieces that we both love but would not be possible for a string quartet to play, and Peter was honest with which our of preferred selections would work and provided alternatives for those that wouldn't work. The music was elegant and flawless and many of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony music was.

  • I hired Washington Virtuosi's string quartet to play our wedding ceremony and I regret doing so. Working with them on the day of my wedding was incredibly stressful. I can dissect my experience with any vendor into three phases: Planning, Day Of, and Post. Planning: This phase was really good. My contact was Peter and he was great about answering my questions and remaining flexible when my schedule was busy. My wife and I had a traditional Catholic Mass so I was sure to send Peter a list of all of our hymns, preludes, etc. I was assured that everything was in order and I felt good about how prepared we were. Day Of: Almost a disaster. The musicians were not informed about all the songs they were contracted to play. They also did not receive the program I sent to Peter in advance that listed the songs and in what order they would be played. How could they show up and not know the material? One of the musicians even asked me for sheet music. I wanted to punch this guy. Their last... Read more
