Boston String Ensemble was the perfect choice for our daughters wedding. Chen was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend BSE.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on July 2, 2022From Boston, MA

We loved having the BSE play at our daughters wedding ceremony and post ceremony cocktail reception! They were professional and arrived in a timely manner. The trio was set up and warming up before our guests arrived. Thank you for a great experience!
