Mahle/Maples Beaver Creek Wedding, February 22, 2014

One important item we wanted for our cabin wedding was a trio to play our first dance and play during our wedding. Our wedding planner recommended Ribbons and Strings Ensembles and I can say without a doubt they were such a joy to work with over the past few months. They set the tone for our wedding and it was nothing short of elegant and romantic. They also learned to play our first dance song at the last minute and it was amazing. Thank you Deb and your staff for making our wedding a memorable one.

Timely, elegant, and beautiful music

The music sounded wonderful at my wedding! It was so elegant and the sound carried wonderfully. The quartet was on-time and professional. I would definitely recommend using this quartet for your wedding ceremony! The online booking is a nice process, just be sure to keep track of what you owe and what you paid. The "Gigmaster" website wasn't updated reflecting changes in pricing and payments made. Deb was quick to fix this however and it all worked out well.

Perfect accompaniment for niece's wedding!

I hired Ribbons and Strings to perform music for my niece's outdoor wedding in August 2012. All aspects of the planning, music selection, communication, and performance were first rate. Honestly, one of the best parts of the whole experience was being able for me and my niece (the bride) to listen to excerpts from their repertoire in order to choose appropriate music for the type of ceremony and mood my 25-year old niece was trying to achieve. In addition, Deb and the quartet arranged their own version of a piece from a movie the bride/groom really liked, and the custom arrangement was really special. Unfortunately, I was too busy during the pre- and post- ceremony to fully appreciate the performance, but based on the comments from guests and other family members, I know it was very well received. The music during the ceremony itself was expertly performed and very appropriately voiced for the outdoor venue. All in all, a wonderful day made even better by the performance from Ribbons and Strings string quartet.

Would definitely recommend!

We hired the Ribbons & Strings Quartet to perform at our wedding ceremony. For logistics, the group worked mainly with the venue coordinator, so we didn't have to worry about that side of things. I am a big music lover - including classical music - but it is not my forte. So we chose them based largely on their good online reviews. They have a large repertoire (including a lot of popular songs) and were accommodating on the selection of music. We chose some and also allowed them to choose others to fill in time. Unfortunately, I didn't get to hear most of what they played - we were busy getting wedding photographs, and the ceremony itself was a blur. However, a couple of friends who were in attendance are both classical music fans and musicians themselves. I asked for their opinions afterwards, and they both said the quartet sounded great! This was our only experience hiring musicians, so other groups may work out just as well, but we were quite happy with the Ribbons & Strings Quartet. I gave them a 4 for "Priced Fairly" simply because I don't have much knowledge/experience to judge. They seemed to be priced competitively with the one other group that we considered.

Fabulous customized wedding ceremony music

Ribbons and Strings was overwhelmingly supportive of the musical selections we suggested. We needed a special song for the bridal processional because it had been one played at the bride's grandparents' wedding. Deb Corisis, Ribbons and Stings manager, quickly located the song and arranged it for the string quartet. This quartet went the extra mile to ensure our ceremony was both beautiful and meaningful.

Response from Ribbons & Strings Ensembles:

"The music and performance was lively and perfectly matched what we wanted from the event." Yes we do charge a bit more than some of the other ensembles out there, but very few ensembles can say that we were "perfectly matched what we wanted from the event." I very much doubt that any other string quartet in this entire region has the ballroom dance music repertoire that we have and that enabled us to perform for this fabulous event. The guests danced for the entire evening to our music. We loved it.

Wonderful Musicians!

My family and I attended a listening session about 3 weeks before my wedding. Roughly a minute into listening to the quartet, we knew we made the right decision! They were practicing, but we were listening to beautiful music all night. Our guests said they sang along to the prelude music we chose. Overall, a great group of musicians!

They have an amazing list of music for any event from weddings, to Halloweens parties, the sky is the limit. They play the most beautiful classical music as well as the most amazing renditions of contemporary music. I doubt there is a song they can't play and that won't sound beautiful. They preformed at my wedding and really made the day!

The ensemble was perfect for my daughter's wedding

We had the Razumovski String Quartet of the Ribbons and Strings Ensembles play at my daughter's wedding. They played for the wedding ceremony held at an outdoor garden area at the venue. Deb was so lovely to deal with. I felt she had so much experience with playing at weddings that she knew exactly what we needed for the prelude, processional, and recessional, plus the music during the ceremony. They have such an extensive repertoire, and she knows so many pieces that everything we even mentioned she was able to play for us at our choosing. Their web site is very helpful to assist us with making our decisions of music. You can listen to selections of the music at a touch, which is great for us since we are not familiar with names of music. We were able to hear the pieces and decide if we liked them or not. When we talked with Deb, she additionally was able to recommend pieces that were perfect for us, which coincided with our family cultural background of having a Hungarian descent. They are not only lovely to work with in selecting the pieces, but their performance was very excellent, at the highest level of ability, and they were professional in every way. They made the wedding setting so perfect to have the lovely string quartet playing in this setting and setting the tone with very soothing and beautiful music. I highly recommend their services.

Ribbons and Strings Trio (violin, viola, and cello) were excellent!!! Deb Corisis, was a wonderful person with which to work and she made it possible for all the music we wished, to be played at my daughter's wedding at Dunafon Castle, near Denver,CO.
I talked and emailed Deb several times and she was always prompt and accommodating in her responses.


Many of our guests commented on the beautiful music which added so much to the specialness of the ceremony.

The Trio invited the future bride and groom to a pre-wedding listening session at which time the classical music could be heard, discussed, and chosen. The gesture was much appreciated.

I would definitely recommend Ribbons and Strings to those wishing to have lovely music for a special occasion!

The Razumovsky Quartet was a delight! We searched through many options before hiring them to play our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour music. The quartet was willing to go far and beyond their competition to accommodate our song selections. Being an out of town bride, Deb adjusted her schedule to meet with us when we visited Boulder a few months before our date. Our only regret is we wish they could have played longer!

The Razumovsky String Quartet from Ribbons & Strings Ensembles added a wonderful touch to our outdoor wedding ceremony. They were very accommodating to our requests and offered an endless selection of music. The quartet arrived in plenty of time to set up and play background music as our guests arrived. They played a very well paced and appropriate set for the wedding procession. During the ceremony, we had also requested that they play a couple of short interludes. As the ceremony completed, the quartet played the recessional music on cue, providing a perfect close to the ceremony. We and all of our guests were more than pleased by their performance.

Ribbons & Strings Ensembles

Ribbons and Strings Ensembles add the soul-stirring beauty of live music to your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We feature combinations of stringed instruments, including violins, viola, and cello. Remember that we gladly add other instruments to the string groups upon request. Weddings are our specialty, but we are available to perform for all types of social gatherings and special events. We serve Boulder, Denver, and the entire Front Range metro region and beyond with a huge variety of wedding and event music including classical, pop and rock, Broadway, and more.

Music Repertoire.......We have been performing together since 1999. Each performer is an experienced, professional college trained musician with a great reputation and a deep love of all genres of music. We have developed a huge repertoire of music, from time-honored classics to today’s popular songs and everyth btween and beyond. Let us know your favorite song; we will be sure to include it to make your special day even more memorable.

Fun Decorative Ribbons.......Early on, we decided to decorate our instruments with beautiful ribbons, using colors that are complementary to the wedding decorations. The clients/guests loved it! We soon made it an important part of our theme, even incorporating the idea into our name: Ribbons and Strings Ensembles.

Our Ensembles.......You can choose an ensemble to match your personal taste and budget. Each group has custom music arrangements and a unique sound.

Razumovsky String Quartet.......Our signature ensemble, the Razumovsky String Quartet, consists of two violins, viola, and cello. This grouping of instruments can produce a full-bodied sound when needed or provide quiet background music when appropriate. Listen to a sample recording. You won’t believe that so much music can be produced by only four musicians.

Triad String Trio.......Our trio can be configured in the traditional way: violin, viola, and cello. For a somewhat lighter sound, the configuration can consist of two violins and one viola. For each configuration we have custom arrangements covering a fabulous variety of music in all styles.

Debonair String Duo.......For the ultimate in intimate sound, choose the Debonair String Duo for your special occasion. Our flexible repertoire enables you to choose any combination of two instruments: two violins, two violas, violin, plus viola, viola plus cello—you get the idea.
