Quality of music is only ONE aspect of your wedding musicians.  Wedding musicians need to be flexible, able to adapt quickly on the fly the changing situations, and should be free of any obvious personal ego when things don't always go exactly as planned.  Which they probably won't.  Perfection is strived for yet rarely achieved! I am director of music at the largest church (by Attendance) in Knoxvillle Tn, All Saints Catholic. i recommend Sequoyah Strings when I meet with Future brides and grooms.  I recommend them FIRST over all others due to the reasons I mentioned above. oh, and also of course because their Playing and Musicianship is second to no other string quartet here in Knoxville.  They are AMAZING.

We had Sequoyah String Quartet play at our son's wedding at Dara's Garden on September 12th, 2015.  The wedding was Great Gatsby/ 1920's themed, and Sequoyah Strings played The Ludlows (from Legends of the Fall) and the Celtic Overture for the ceremony.  For the reception they played music evocative of the 1920's.  The music was absolutely beautiful and added such a lovely atmosphere to the entire wedding.  The muscians were amazing and so wonderful to work with!  Thank you for making my son's wedding so special!

Sequoyah Strings played at our wedding on Sept. 11, 2010 at the Norris Dam Tea Room and their professionalism was outstanding. They were great to work with and their wonderful performance greatly enhanced our wedding ceremony. Be sure to give them a call when you need some beautiful music for your special occasion. You'll be glad that you did.

Truly Amazing!!  We had the pleasure of having Sequoyah Strings Quartet and Trumpeter play at our daughter's wedding on August 22nd at Central Baptist  Church Ft. City.  We knew when we booked them that they were wonderful but we just didn't know how wonderful they were until the wedding.  We, along with our guests, were so amazed and blessed with how beautiful the music was.  Everyone has told us that was truly the most beautiful wedding music they have ever heard.  We definitely would recommend them for any function you may have coming up.  Karen is absolutely wonderful to work with.  Thanks Sequoyah Strings Quartet and Trumpeter, you all are truly THE BEST!!!

Sequoyah Strings did a wonderful job at our wedding last month.  The music was beautiful, and really added a lot to the cermony.   Not only did my husband and I enjoy the music, but we received many comments from our guests about how pretty it was.  
They were also great to work with - very professional and organized, which is a big plus when dealing with so many vendors.
Thanks for everything!

I was so excited about having Sequoyah Strings play at my October 13, 2007 wedding. I played the viola when I was younger so a string quartet was on my list of must haves at my wedding! They were even kind enough to work with a trumpetor I had selected (my uncle). I've gotten so many compliments on the music! Karen was always easy to get a hold of and returned all my emails promptly. I would highly recommend Sequoyah Strings to anyone! Thanks again for making my day so special!

I highly recommend Sequoyah Strings! We were married on August 18 in an outdoor ceremony where they provided such a beautiful background to the arrival of guests, as well as the ceremony. They were very easy to book, communicate with through phone and email, and the ease of choosing one of the "ready-made" packages was very helpful for a busy bride. They were also extrememly professional-- prompt, acted as true guests to our wedding, and very talented. Thank you, SS!

I was married on October 6 and had the immense pleasure of having Sequoyah Strings provide the music for the ceremony. We live quite a distance from Knoxville (around 1 1/2 hours), but this was never a problem. The music was beautiful. It was more than I could have possibly dreamed of. All my guests were impressed with use of the trumpet and the string quartet. I would recommend Sequoyah Strings to anyone. I cannot say enough how pleased we were to have them perform at our wedding. For me, it was the highlight of the day. For two music lovers it was the perfect compliment to a perfect day!

There are several components to any given wedding. One of the most important, to my wife and I, is music. We had researched and visited with other groups in the Knoxville area. By far the best was Sequoyah Strings. We were looking for more than just music, we wanted someone that would be ontime, courteous, and professional (i.e. not getting up after playing music but waiting until after our ceremony and being respectful/silent during our exchange of vows). Thank you for doing your part in making our special day exceptional. Best regards, Mr. & Mrs. Nelson

When I began to the plan my wedding, I knew music would be one of the most important parts of our day. I'm a musician, so I already had lots of ides about what music I wanted. Sequoyah strings came highly recommended and exceeded all my expectations. I actually asked them to learn a few new pieces that I was particularly attached to, and it was no problem! I have a family full of musicians, and I'm still getting compliments on how amazing the music was. Karen was fantastic to communicate with, and always got back with me right away. Thanks Sequoyah Strings! I couldn't have asked for more!

The Sequoyah Strings quartet played at my October wedding, and they were wonderful! They played the Prelude, the Processional, a piece during Communion, and the Recessional, and every bit of it was perfectly timed and executed. They even learned a special request piece for our Prelude that made the ceremony extra special for my husband and me. With all the other string ensembles in the area, I am so glad I went with Sequoyah Strings. I couldn't have been more pleased.

As a musician myself, I was particularly selective as to who would perform at my wedding. I must say that I was so pleased with the quality of musicianship and professionalism exhibited by this group of talented performers. At first, I was a little apprehensive about not having the quartet at the reheasal but I was pleasantly surprised when they began to play. As every bride knows, there is so much to worry about, but Karen and the others of the quartet were so professional and prompt - no more worry! My guests are still raving about how beautiful "Ave Maria" was! As a bride and a musician, I highly recommend Sequoyah Strings.

The Sequoyah Strings musicians played beautifully at my wedding! It was so nice to walk down the aisle to live musicians and not a CD. They truly added a special touch to our day. Both the wedding party and guests commented on how wonderful they sounded. Also, before the wedding, Karen was very professional and alway promptly answered any questions I had. I would definitely recommend Sequoyah Strings to other brides.

Dear Karen and fellow quartet members thank you so much for the wonderful music. Sequoyah Strings played at our daughter's wedding held at Magnolia Manor on 9/30/2006. Our guests were so complimentary of your performance and called to say how beautiful the music sounded. Karen's professional manner and promptness to answer all my questions made the music a stress free portion of the planning process. Without hesitation I would recommend Sequoyah Strings to anyone who wants beautiful music on their wedding day. Again, thank you for completing Jennifer's special day.

Sequoyah Strings was the best investment I made when I planned my wedding. They made chosing the music and setting the mood for my wedding effortless. I wish everyone was as easy and pleasant to work with as they were. They are very prompt, professional and friendly. If you want a elegant classy wedding or to make any event the talk of the town, you can't go wrong with this talented group of musicians!

I had Sequoyah Strings play for our wedding ceremony and they did an amazing job. It was a tall order too in that I wanted a variety of instuments and some obscure songs. They learned three pieces of music for me and did a wondeful job. Everything was just as I wanted it to be. No need to worry using Sequoyah Strings they will make your day perfect.

The Sequoyah Strings are very talented, professional musicians. They play any genre of music one desires. They played at our daughter's wedding as well as the reception. They give so much class to any occasion. Guests are still raving about their music. They are extremely reliable in their business practices. Their attire was very formal and appropriate. I would highly recommend the Sequoya Strings and would use them again.

Sequoyah Strings played during our wedding ceremony at Whitestone Country Inn on August 19th. The music was absouletly beautiful, and all the guests thought so as well. They were so easy to work with and wonderful musicians. Our favorite piece was the "Sleeping Beauty Waltz" by Tchaikovky. They added the perfect touch to our ceremony!

Having a string quartet at my wedding was something I knew I wanted as soon as we were engaged...finding the perfect one however, was another story. When I came upon Sequoyah Strings I was extremely pleased with how kind and helpful Karen was. Their performance at the wedding was absolutely perfect! More than I could have asked for. I would recommend Sequoyah Strings to anyone looking for beautiful music and professionalism. Thank you to Karen and the rest of the talented musicians of Seqouyah Strings!!

Sequoyah Strings was simply amazing at our out-door wedding. The musical performance was perfection, and the musicians themselves were extremely professional. We requested not only a specific song, but a specific arrangement of a specific song, and the group learned it and performed it exactly how we wanted. They even traveled all the way to Virginia! Everyone is still talking about how wonderful it was, including the bride and groom. Bravo!

The music that Sequoyah Strings provided at my wedding was outstanding! It set the mood and ambiance for our special day. Our guests were really impressed with everything and are still commenting about how beautiful the music sounded. Having Sequoyah Strings play at our wedding was the best decision that we made (we were going to have just a piano and changed our minds at the last minute). The piano alone would not have been able to set the mood as the strings did. Thank you, Sequoyah Strings!

I highly reccommend Sequoyah Strings to anyone who is even thinking about planning a formal event.
