Quantcast

We used RCP string quartet for our ceremony music in Rockport. They were absolutely out of this world. The bridal party was running a little late and their music definitely helped keep people entertained. Top notch quality and professionalism for music and service. Rebecca was my point of contact and was extremely helpful in terms of sorting out music for a religious service. Would recommend them 10 times over! Not sure how they compare price-wise to other players but my take is that you get what you pay for and they were well worth every penny.

I can not thank Riverview Chamber Players enough for their phenomenal service. My husband and I were planning a wedding from across the country and they could not have made it easier. Rebecca was very responsive and so helpful in guiding us through the process. We had little to no experience booking music for an event and Rebecca made it easy for us to make decisions and understand our option. We highly recommend Riverview Chamber Players for your wedding or any event in the Greater Boston area!

When I envisioned my wedding ceremony, one thing that kept coming to mind was a string quartet. This idea sounded to me to be so extravagant and probably out of my price range. But, when I found Riverview Chamber Players they had so many packages to choose from. They also had so many samples to view on their website to help me decide on the right composition of instruments and songs. I was so excited to hear Canon in D being played by a string quartet on my wedding day. Just ask my now husband how many times I have played that song over the past year. All in all, Riverview Chamber Player really added that beautiful storybook magic to our wedding day. We received so many compliments and really enjoyed all of the music that was played that day at our ceremony. My only regret is that in the busy-ness of the day I didn't have a chance to meet the players in person. But, thank you to all of the musicians who came and filled the church with your music. You made our day that much more special!! One note for future brides is to be sure that if you choose more than one processional song (i.e. mothers, bridesmaids etc. that you have a pause in between the songs and groups, otherwise the musicians are not able to transition between songs. In the craziness of the day I forgot this minor detail which may have been a blessing in disguise as our ceremony was already quite emotional as it was). Thank you Riverview Chamber Players!!

The Riverview Chamber Players were a huge hit at our wedding. Many guests commented on the beautiful ceremony and cocktail music. Rebecca was incredibly helpful leading up to the event with helping me decide which pieces to choose for the ceremony. I had a special request for a piece that was not yet in their repertoire, and she was very happy to learn the piece. It really meant a lot to us to have that played, and it was played beautifully. They truly sounded wonderful, and were great to work with. Thank you!
