Clients & Testimonials

Venus Ensembles string quartet can render Ode to Joy magnificently, then slip effortlessly into jazz or contemporary numbers.

New York Magazine

EVERYONE had such a great time at the cocktail hour and everyone commented on how great the music was.

Alice Dunn, Client

Jessica was amazing to work with and her team is beyond talented. Venus Ensembles is an easy choice if you ask me! Truly spectacular.

Katharine S., Client

Positively spectacular! I worked with Jessica to set the tone, only giving two specific songs to play, and “overall feeling” for the rest. The ensemble NAILED it – it was exactly what I hoped for.

Music speaks where words cannot and we will forever treasure all of the moments which you helped create for us and our guests so perfectly. We would also like to thank you for your professional guidance both in planning for and in choosing music that best reflected us; the rock portion of our cocktail hour was beyond cool…you might just have started a following! It really was a pleasure working with you and we hope that we have some excuse someday in our future to hear you play again – thanks for sharing your gift with the rest of us.

Danielle Salerno

All of the musicians were excellent, and your recommendations and choice of music was perfect. We got a LOT of comments about Venus Ensembles from our guests! Plus, you have been so easy to work with through the whole process, start to finish. Thanks again and can’t wait to have a reason to use you again!

David Wargo

After 250 weddings you begin to lower your expectations toward ‘professional’ musicians. Sadly there is a good deal of simply going through the motions out there. Then along comes Jessica and her extraordinarily talented cadre of young artists. ‘Ode to Joy’ is rendered joyfully. ‘Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major’ is magnificently reverential. Even when they are applying themselves mightily to be heard, un-miked, above the din of a two hundred person cocktail reception, their music is both ethereal and polished. This isn’t your average string quartet.

Duncan Burns, General Manager of The Union League Club, New York City

Our guests –many of whom have substantial music backgrounds — were positively blown away by the quality, breathtaking sound, and appearance of your group. We’ve now been asked numerous times where we found you!
