It was a pleasure to work with Palatine String Quartet. They were easy to work with and specially arranged a score for me to enter down the aisle, which was absolutely beautiful and magical. My guests loved their music and they took their cues very well. Overall very happy with the service thank you Palatine string quartet!




We enjoyed having the Palatine String Quartet with us for our event this past weekend. They really enjoyed performing for the guests and were great with acoustic and electric instruments alike. We especially liked how well they can work with classical and modern works.

We just wanted to say thank you to you all for Thursday. You were all brilliant and you helped make the ceremony and reception really special - we loved having you there and have received so many compliments about you from our guests.

We’re really sorry we didn’t get to formally introduce ourselves on the day - unfortunately we were just so busy.

Thanks again,
Anthony & Courtney

"Thank you so much! I wish I could have been in the room while the guests were waiting to hear more !
I did receive feedback that our guests recognized some of the Indian songs and they were all complimentary.
I thought you and your team were wonderful!
Would love to do it all over again!"
