We were thrilled with Campanella Ensemble's performance at our daughter's New York wedding! They were so easy to deal with in the planning process, and very accommodating to our music requests. They were professional throughout, patient and understanding when they found themselves playing prelude music for just the wedding party, as the venue's elevator broke down and delayed the arrival of our guests and causing the ceremony to start late. Their beautiful music gave the ceremony elegance, and more than lived up to my vision for the wedding. I give them high praise and thanks from our family.
"Campanella Ensemble was just what I needed to make the atmosphere of my event both relaxed and elegant. Our guests enjoyed the performance thoroughly - we would hire this group again without question!"
