• We chose Monarch Ensemble because of their warm and rich sound, very different from typical string quartets. Monarch sounded great on the big day - one guest, a fellow musician, memorialized in our guestbook that "this wind quartet sounds awesome!" Communications were easy and prompt - we also appreciated their suggestions for a smooth ceremony (with nine kids in the processional), despite no rehearsal. Very happy with our decision and would not hesitate to recommend Monarch Ensemble for weddings and other events." --Michelle and Alex (Bride and groom)

  • "If there are any brides looking at this page- you will not be disappointed if you have the Monarch Ensemble play at your wedding. They by far and away exceeded every expectation we had!  OUR GUESTS WERE ABSOLUTELY RAVING ABOUT THE GORGEOUS MUSIC, AND THE FACT THAT YOU PLAYED 'RHIANNON' FOR ME AS I WALKED DOWN THE AISLE WAS BEYOND PERFECT." -- Rhiannon (Bride)

  • "It was really great working with you. I'm serious when I say your sound is very good. You blend really well and the group moves together as one cohesive sound. PLUS. . . You were certainly a pleasure to work with. Believe me, that goes a long way! Thank YOU!!!" --Michael (wedding musician)

  • "Thank you all so much for the beautiful music at our wedding. Our guests had wonderful things to share with us and very much enjoyed the music before and after the ceremony as well as the arrangement you played in the middle of "By my side". Also, the arrangement of "Angel Eyes" was exactly what I envisioned - it was perfect! The music was beautiful! " -- Abby (bride)

  • "Thank you Monarch Ensemble for the beautiful music at my daughter's wedding this past weekend! You sounded heavenly!" -- Kim (Mother of the bride)

  • "Great group of VERY talented musicians!" -- Kathy (musician)
