The music was beautiful for our ceremony. The only part was when my dad and I got to the alter and she continued playing and it was awkward for a good 10 seconds. The pastor kept looking over to give the “okay go ahead and end it” but she never looked up. I think she was really into it.
I found Bethany online when I needed a pianist to work with playing background music for a presentation and as an accompanist for 3 different vocalists. She was so easy to work with and recorded mp3 files for the vocalists to be able to practice ahead of the events. The event was for 400 people and it came off without a hitch. She was a pleasure to work with.
Bethany was prompt, flexible, and performed wonderfully. She was very easy to work and I highly recommend her!
When I found Bethany on-line and reviewed her credentials I was impressed. However, hearing her play impressed me more. She's effortless on the piano and on top of that she's a lovely person. The Piano at our venue was an extremely old grand piano and it didn't deter her in any way.
Punctual, gracious, and easy to work with. I'm glad Bethany was part of making a great event and memory in our lives.
It was incredibly easy to coordinate our wedding ceremony playlist with Bethany. Professional and talented, Bethany helped make our ceremony very special. Cannot recommend her enough.

I'm so glad we chose Bethany to play piano at our wedding ceremony. She was very flexible with the music selections and played everything just like I envisioned.

We have Bethany return again and again!
Bethany really helped us out in a pinch. She is an excellent pianist and made very helpful suggestions to help our event go smoothly. She was easy to work with and so friendly. If you are looking for a great pianist, she is awesome!
Bethany was great! She worked with me to customize the songs that I wanted played, and every song that I suggested she knew how to play. She was on time and everyone thought she did a great job playing the piano at our wedding ceremony. Thanks Bethany for making our day special!
Bethany arrived on time and prepared to play. Even though she had never seen a piano exactly like our (older model Sony electric) she had no issues with it. She played a wide slection of tunes that were the perfect background music for my fund raising event. She was very pleasant and professional. I would hire her again without hesitation.
We had a night time ceremony in a 200 year old church lit by candlelight. Bethany's music was perferct in the setting. The guest enjoyed the music prior to the ceremony. We loved our processional music. She made our day by playing us out to When I'm 64 by the Beatles. Bethany was wonderful to work with.
Bethany was played the lead horn book for the GCT production of Les Miserables. Not only is she an outstanding musician, but her professionalism and work ethic is what sets her apart from others. You will not regret your decision to hire Bethany for any sort of performance needs.
Bethany was hired for one of the weddings I coordinated and she did an outstanding job! She was professional and a great person to work with! And her music was beautiful!
I hired Bethany Brinton to play background music at a corporate cocktail reception. She was very prompt in responding to emails and punctual the night of the event. She was very professional throughout the evening and I received positive feedback on her music selection, which i left completely up to her. I would highly recommend her services to everyone.
Bethany played the piano during our wedding ceremony. She was quick to respond to emails, arrived early to the venue, and accomodated our somewhat unorthodox choice of music. Thanks so much!
As the music director for a recent production of Annie, I was very happy with Bethany's talents and professionalism as a trumpeter. She was always punctual and, more importantly, in tune!
I would not hesitate to hire her again.
Bethany played at our home for a Christmas party and did a fabulous job. She has quite a selection of music and everyone really enjoyed the added touch.
