Planning a wedding can be an overwhelming task; one is pressured of the thought of making everything perfect for each attending guest – a task hard to accomplish. This is especially true when it comes to music. We were pressured even more since we had a double wedding (me and my sister were getting married the same day) with a diverse mixture of guests. 60 out of 300 of our guests were from different cultures (from our workplaces) and religions. We were going to have a Christian wedding and it was challenging to meet everyone’s expectations.
There are languages that are widely spoken and understood among many cultures of the world – English and Spanish are such languages. In musical world classical music is such an instrument - it crosses the cultural barriers. It is very elegant and is always in style. We are glad for the divine providence that brought us to Bravo Strings quartet. They were easy to talk to, their service was fairly priced, and they were willing to go the extra mile to make the wedding special. In addition to classical music we wanted some of our Christian hymns to be rendered by the strings quartet as well. Bravo Strings told us that it is possible as long as we provide the sheet music. We provided them with sheet music pieces written for one instrument realizing that it was not arranged for a string quartet and did not expect the music to sound very rich. During the wedding I heard them playing those hymns and was pleasantly surprised – it actually sounded rich because each of the instruments was playing a different set of notes. It sounded like they arranged the single instrument music for their strings quartet on-the-fly.
Many people were fascinated by the music and we got a lot of questions about the quartet from our guests during and after the wedding. I personally felt obligated to call and thank Bravo Strings after our honeymoon for their professionalism and for the wonderful moments they contributed to the wedding reception.

The kid is a musical genius. His name is Moses Karapetyan. He's a Berkeley student. He's an extremely gifted musician. He plays classical music gigs, but he knows all kinds of music. He fronts a few bands at Berkeley, for example. Anyway, we were really happy with his performance--and his price was reasonable, too.
