Outstanding

Chicago Cello Duo played at our wedding ceremony. Sara was very easy to communicate with and they really went above and beyond for us- including learning some new pieces. Best of all they sounded phenomenal. We would definitely hire them again!

Amazing and beautiful. Just the right touch.

Like icing on the cake Chicago Cello Duo was the absolute right touch for my daughter's wedding. They played 3 selections that my daughter requested during the ceremony, and before / after music while the guests were arriving and exiting. We made arrangements on the phone and the internet, and everything went smoothly and as planned. Very easy to work with, on time, and just plain beautiful. I have already given their information to a future bride for her big day.

Beautiful music, fantastic experience

Chicago Cello Duo played at my wedding and my husband and I could not have been more pleased. I love the rich sound of the cello having played as a young child, and was so excited to find Chicago Cello Duo. Sara made wonderful recommendations for each aspect of our service. Many guests commented that our ceremony was extremely warm, and I know that was thanks to Chicago Cello Duo.
