What They're Saying...

    • “Choosing to work with Corda Entertainment to provide music for my wedding was one of the best decisions I made. I chose their nine-piece string and brass ensemble. They were incredible and my guests were so impressed!! Alison is a joy to work with: she fully understands your needs and helps you make the right choices. I'm glad I chose Corda and encourage any and all interested to give them a call.”

    • “Alison was wonderful to work with..........she made the whole process worry free. We had a string duo at my daughter's June wedding at Gray Gables - outdoors - and the musicians did a fabulous job. Lots of compliments from our guests. The musicians were prompt, professional and very talented! Thanks Alison!”

    • “Corda Entertainment was a real joy to work with! I kept coming up with all kinds of new songs before the wedding, and they were really flexible to make sure that they could incorporate what I wanted into my wedding. Alison always returned my emails quickly and was very helpful in the planning process. The day of the wedding, the music was absolutely a dream! I felt like my wedding was one out of the movies. The musicians were very professionally dressed, and the sound was incredible. They are very talented, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is getting married. After the wedding, they made a point to say goodbye, which I thought was very personal and sweet. I really enjoyed having Corda Entertainment as a part of my wedding!”

    • “Thank you Allison and Corda Entertainment for beautiful music for our daughter Jaime's wedding. The whole experience with you was effort-free! You handled everything in a professional manner...from returning phone calls and answering emails promptly, to being receptive to our ideas, arranging a dependable string and flute trio to play at our church, and getting the music for special selections. The trio was on time, looked great, and I didn't have to do anything except enjoy the music! Jaime and Vincent particularly enjoyed their special selections. Everything was wonderful - even our Minister of Music asked for contact info, a grand compliment! Other guests asked about you too, and I was glad to recommend you. I hope to use your services again. You are a fantastic group! Thanks so very much!"

    • “Allison and her musicians are absolutely the finest and I highly recommend their services for any event that you are planning if you want THE BEST!!! They have provided music at major events for me over the years and recently provided the music for my daughter's wedding. I would have contracted no one else and their beautiful music exceeded my expectations. Our guests continue to comment on the beautiful ceremony and music.”
