    Dear Tony, Mary Ann and I wish to thank you very much for playing so beautifully throughout our wedding Mass on January 1st at our Lady of Mercy Church. On our behalf, please also thank the other ensemble members. Your music was beautiful, very peaceful, romantic and holy. You played an important role in creating the setting that Mary Ann and I wished for our wedding. Thank you. We will enthusiastically recommend your services to others. Best wishes always, Mary Ann and Kevin

    Hi Tony, I’d like to thank the Shrewsbury String Quartet for playing at Allison’s wedding last Saturday at Kings Caterers. The music sounded absolutely wonderful and it added just the right touch to the ceremony. Since we have four more children, I’m sure we’ll be calling on you again! Thank you once more. Regards, Joanne
