Recent reviews:
"Your musicians were FANTASTIC!! They were prompt, polite, and professional.
Their music selection was perfect and they were a joy to work with."

— Michelle D. Hill, Assistant Director, Office of Alumni Relations, University of Maryland University College

"My daughter's wedding was planned in only three months. The String Poets (and their lead, Radhi Santos) were a dream to work with on repertory. The musical quality of the quartet is outstanding. Friends who regularly attend world-class concerts praised their talent and overall performance. You will be delighted to have them play for you at any occasion. "

String Poets was wonderful, so professional! They played "At Last" as I walked down the aisle at my wedding. The Officiant began to speak before the song was over, and the quartet simply and smoothly faded out the song. They also expertly accompanied my cousin, a singer in the Michigan Opera, in singing "The Lord's Prayer." At the end of the ceremony, as my new husband and I exited the venue, the quartet expertly played Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered." I definitely recommend String Poets. They made our ceremony -extraodinary-.

I couldn't have been more pleased. These guys sounded just perfect! They played a non-traditional piece for me as I walked down the aisle - Dvorak's Humoresque No.7 as well as other pieces we selected for the reception. They are finely skilled musicians and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a string trio (they also have a string quartet) for their event.

This is my second time booking them for my event. The event was three years apart and it seems that they have gotten even better. On time (early to set up before the event), pleasant and professional and their sound was as if I was listing to a CD: Clear, Pure, Perfect. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed them. It has been a pleasure once again and will definitely use them again.

String Poets are talented and generous. Our memorial service at Wolftrap was a challenge as it included a classical set, a dove release and several secular pieces interspersed within a program. Extraodinary musicians and professionals, the String poets hit every challenging entry, page turn and pause. As a modest singer, I would recommend String Poets to enhance any gig. They make you sound like a star. Their accompanment to Josh Groban piece ("To Where You Are") was straight from heaven. m

These gentlemen were spectacular. Top-tier musicianship and their playing was rich, emotive and flawless. And just the nicest guys you'll ever meet. As others have said, they arrived early and were set up and ready to go. They gave our event that extra special touch of class and pomp we were looking for. I hope to have an occasion special enough to call on them again. Thank you!

Great group, unmatched talent based on all the other groups I looked at. All the wedding guests raved about them and asked where I found them. Very accomodating and worked with me the whole way through. All in all, I'd say the best spent money throughout the entire wedding. Highly recommended!!!!

Radhi Santos and The String Poets played for our daughter's wedding ceremony in Midlothian Virginia. They arrived promptly, played beautifully and were enjoyed by all. As a special surprise they performed a selection that the bride had requested on short notice much to her guests and her grooms delight. I would recommend The String Poets to anyone wanting an exceptional experience. Thank you, Mother of the Bride
