Client Reviews

  • “I just wanted to send you a note and let you know we really loved having the Rosewood Ensemble play during our wedding ceremony and reception at the Renaissance Grand Hotel. You were fabulous to work with and the music was fantastic and so beautiful. Derek, my now husband, is actually a musician and he was so impressed with how in tune and on key they were.”

    Jessica, Bride Wedding
  • “THANK YOU for the beautiful music at our wedding ceremony on October 18th! We are still receiving compliments!”

    Lauren S., Bride
  • “The way in which you played added a special touch of lightness and warmth to the occasion.”

    Lee and Al, Bride and Groom
  • “I cannot begin to tell you how many of our guests came up to us over the course of the evening to say how fabulous it was to walk in the door and hear you playing. The minute they heard you (and your music was the first thing they heard) they knew it was going to be a wonderful evening. You all looked so classically elegant – absolutely gorgeous. We cannot thank you enough for helping to make Liesl’s wedding so special. Saturday night was an unforgettable night for us. It would not have been as special without you!”

    Christy and John, Parents of the Bride Wedding
  • “Thank you for sharing your time and talent to make our wedding day so special. We’ll remember how much your music added to the beauty of our wedding.”

    Katy and Kevin, Bride and Groom
  • “I just wanted to tell you what a beautiful job your quartet did — you were professionals. It was so beautiful and I would love to recommend you to anyone that has any questions.”

    Cathy
  • “We want to thank the Rosewood Ensemble for such a wonderful performance at our daughter’s wedding in June. The music was performed at the best volume for the Jewel Box and provided an excellent mood. The coordination with the trumpeter worked beautifully. The music during the cocktail hour at the reception was “the icing on the cake.”
