They couldn't produce the full accompaniment to one of our important service tunes, "I Vow to Thee My Country." It seemed obvious to me that they'd never heard it (check out the BBC Proms at the end of the festival to gather a sense of the song!.
By and by, though, these people were more than competent to bring good, live music to our event.
I wouldn't hesitant to hire them again.
Firefly Strings performed at our wedding ceremony last weekend and we are incredibly happy with the result. They learned all the songs we requested, even one of my husband's originals. Our guests were very impressed. I'm glad we had a videographer so I can go back and see the performance again. I would highly recommend Firefly Strings for your event!
We asked Firefly to accompany our church choir on two movements from Requiems and a few other pieces for our church's Music Sunday. Communication in advance was great, and the group showed up a few minutes before scheduled. We were able to go through rehearsal of all the pieces, and then to perform them for the church service.
The members of the group played well together, were able to pick up some wrong notes in the scores that they had and correct them, and played with passion and musicality.
They helped us to bring together a lovely morning for our church congregation.
Thanks so much!
Response from Firefly Strings:
Thank you so much for your review, Matt! It means so much to us and we truly enjoyed the performance!

My husband, Luke, and I had the honor of having both Daisy and Derek Weagle as our musical accompaniment for not just one our weddings, but two. What was supposed to only be one wedding quickly morphed into two separate events and Daisy and Derek were extremely flexible and understanding of the situation. They were both able to change their plans and accommodate our additional date without issue! They were professional, quick to respond to questions/comments, punctual, and, of course, the music was exactly what we were looking for. Luke and I were able to pick out my bridal entrance music and our exit music months ahead of time. From there, our musical choices were adapted and made to fit with our special day(s). We had a mix of traditional music and pop songs that were beautifully composed to match our personalities and the setting. Even with some inclement weather, Daisy and Derek were both calm and prepared which helped us focus on other vendors that were not as well prepared for our weather change. We got several compliments on the music during both events so If anyone is looking for music for their own event, I would highly recommend both Daisy and Derek!

What to Expect
An extremely professional performance ensemble that arrives from an hour to thirty minutes before the performance for set up and sound check. Our music varies from standard classical quartets to pop, rock, musical theater, and fiddle/folk tunes. We have an arranger who puts together any music that is not part of our standard repertoire, and we are extremely flexible when it comes to performances.
The Firefly String Quartet is a New England based performance ensemble consisting of Sarah Rogers( violin), Silvija Kristapsons (violin & viola), Ariel Chu (violin & viola), and Adaeze Ogunedo (cello). They have performed for different occasions; such as weddings, church performances, and private events. Each member of the ensemble has received a bachelor’s degree in music, and have learned from premiere musicians in their home states. The group had its inaugural start in early 2015 and have been performing strongly ever since.
Additional Booking Notes
We only expect that there be four chairs with no arms waiting for us in a designated location and that we be kept out of any inclement weather or harsh sunlight.
