Micah played the violin at our small, intimate, and elegant wedding at the Wentworth Mansion in Charleston, South Carolina. He played beautifully and his music was a significant part of our special day, creating the perfect ambiance for the classy style of wedding we were envisioning. He was a pleasure to interact with - always kind, professional, and responsive. I would highly recommend him to play at any wedding or lovely event.
From day 1 Micah was great about communicating and understanding exactly what we wanted. He played beautifully and it was the perfect addition to our intimate ceremony. We would highly recommend!!!

We hired Micah to provide ceremony music for our outside wedding. It sounded amazing and he was so easy to work with! He always responded to my emails and everything went as smooth as possible. We are so happy we decided to hire Micah, and can recommend him to anyone else looking for music for their wedding.
Micah performed for our wedding and we are so happy he did. Lots of complements about the music and how incredible Micah sounded from the guests and it was exactly what I wanted.
Micah Gangwer played beautifully for my wedding ceremony! I went to college with Micah so I knew that his playing abilities were superb and I would have absolutely nothing to worry about! I really enjoyed looking at his website. It definitely helped me choose what I wanted played for the ceremony. Micah was very professional every time we spoke and he was very helpful when discussing music. I have gotten so many compliments from family and friends and how wonderful the music was. I would definitely recommend Micah Gangwer for any future bride. You won't have anything to worry about choosing Micah for your ceremony.
Micah Gangwer and his quartet played my wedding this summer, and my wife and I agree that this was one of the best decisions we made. Eight months later, friends and family are still commenting on how beautifully the string quartet played. Micah was positive, professional, and a delight to work with. He helped us realize our vision of the perfect ceremony.
Micah was exactly what we were looking for. His sound is incredible, and he even showed up early to practice a song with my cousin who sang for the lighting of the unity candle. If you need ceremony music for your wedding hire Micah, you won’t be disappointed.
Micah and his quartet played for my wedding and cocktail hour. Our guests were very impressed and I cannot thank them enough for helping to make my wedding day so special. He even arranged the Beatles song “All you need is Love” for the quartet to play for the recessional! All the music they played was exactly how I wanted it!
We were very satisfied with his professionalism, his availability to speak and meet with us, and most of all his amazing sound. The quality of Micah’s playing is outstanding to say the least. We sincerely offer only the highest recommendation for Micah.
I’d strongly recommend Micah Gangwer to anyone looking for a violinist. Breathtaking is the only word I can think of to describe his sound.
His music was great! I can’t say enough about his talent and professionalism! Thank You!!!!!
Micah and his quartet performed for a party/fundraiser at my house and were a big hit with everyone. They were all professional musicians from the South Carolina Philharmonic, and I will for sure be calling him next time I have any need for live music.
I didn't get a chance to tell you at my wedding how much I appreciated the music you and the other two musicians performed that day. You all did a wonderful job! Since I was a teenage girl, I knew I wanted a string trio to play at my wedding. Hearing your performance that day was truly a dream come true, and that meant so much to me.
I can't say it enough: it was a tremendous relief to find you! After feeling a growing concern that had crested to panic, I wondered what (if any) music would be played at my wedding. I was so happy to discover your website. Your quick response to questions, your thoroughness, and professionalism from beginning to end were all excellent. I wanted you to know how grateful I am for your performance at the ceremony. Thank you for your part in making my wedding day so special!
We are so thankful for the beautiful music that Micah provided for our wedding ceremony. We received several comments from our guests about the music and how it really made the event more magical. Thank you again and we wish you the best in your endeavors and career!
Micah performed for our wedding ceremony. It was great to have the meeting with him so we could pick out the music after hearing him play through a bunch of songs. He made the entire process easy for us and he sounded great!
I am so happy Micah and his quartet performed for my daughter's wedding in June! They were all extraordinary musicians and they sounded just like a recording! There were so many compliments from the guests, and we could not be any more pleased!
Micah Gangwer played in a string quartet for my wedding a month ago and people are still complimenting me nonstop on the ceremony music. The quartet looked and sounded better than any other string quartet I have seen. Micah was very helpful and professional throughout the planning process and made sure my wedding was exactly like I imagined it! Thanks again!
He was great and we would highly recommend! We were skeptical at first that we would find a good violinist online, but we decided to go with Micah after hearing his audio samples and seeing his website. He made everything so easy. He is far better than the average wedding violinist out there so if you can book him I would jump on it!
I am so thankful Micah was able to play for my wedding! It was outside and went exactly how I had pictured it. I did not get to hear much of the prelude music, but my family said it was amazing. Micah was so helpful when we were picking out our music, and he made the whole process easy. I am so glad I decided to go with Micah, he is a true professional!
I heard Micah at my friends wedding last summer in Sumter and knew right away that he would be great for my daughters wedding. He met with us and played more than 20 pieces for her and my son-in-law to choose for their ceremony. I chose the Bach-Gounod Meditation for the mothers, and it was absolutely beautiful. It was an overall great experience, and the music at the wedding was fantastic!
