Carnelian Strings


“Warmest thanks for your beautiful music! Our wedding was perfect and you provided the most wonderful atmosphere. It was a pleasure to work with you, Mary! We will certainly tell our friends about the delightful Sweet Thyme Violinist!” James and Greta

"It was a pleasure meeting you and your fellow performers; the music you played at the wedding was absolutely beautiful and added so much to the ambiance of the ceremony.  I am amazed how something that adds so much can be almost invisible and yet so wonderful. May God bless your work and may you especially continue in the ministry of music for wedding ceremonies." Sincerely, John

“We loved your music!  Thank you. Our guests were so impressed with the music of a solo violinist. It was perfect for us! Thanks again.” Winnie and Rob

"I want to compliment your musicians on the marvelous job they did at my daughter's wedding. We conducted the ceremony outside, under the oak trees, along with the beautiful quartet music, that brought a number of compliments like, 'this was the most beautiful wedding I have attended'. You handled the arrangements very professionally and courteously. If I have occasion again, I will be contacting you. (My younger daughter is only 17, so I hope it will be awhile)".                 Cordially, Bob

"The background music provided by the Carnelian Strings at the reception was very appropriate & helped bring to a crescendo the excitement & joy felt by all in attendance. God Bless you for your part in this endeavor".
Respectfully, Raymond

“Carnelian Strings played such beautiful notes for our daughter's wedding. They made our special day magical. Working with Mary was delightful. She was so charming and easy to work with and was very professional, yet had a special touch to help make our day unique and special. I recommend the Carnelian Strings for any special occasion. ”  Cindy

“Recently, while attending our function, I heard a string quartet playing. The string quartet was the Carnelian Strings. Their music was inspiring and ranged from the 18th century classical to movie themes, ragtime and pop, one after another. I have heard string quartets many times in the past and they were good. However when I heard the Carnelian Strings I was impressed, the music was awesome, fun and enjoyable. I highly recommend this group for anyone – no matter what the occasion.”  Sincerely, Gary Lee

“The Carnelian Strings Duo lent their talents to our recent company party and their performance added the perfect feel to the night. Our elegant evening would not have been complete without their contribution!”  Hilary

“Thanks very much Mary for your many suggestions about the music we chose. It was a beautiful touch to a special day!” Marilyn and Travis

“It was so nice to see you strolling during our cocktail hour. The music wafted in and out among our guests and it was just the right touch.  You are so easy to work with, Mary and I will certainly recommend you for future events. Blessings”,  Catherine

“Wow! What a pleasing sound for only one violin! You were elegant and perfect for our 50th anniversary. Thank you so much!” Paul and Amelia

“Thank you so much for your violin music. The Ave Maria we requested was very beautiful and meaningful for our family. Your timing was just right and everything flowed smoothly. It was a pleasure to include your music for my daughter’s wedding. Well done!” Beverly
