We could not have been happier with our choice to go with New York Virtuosi for our wedding music. After considering a ton of options (and vendors), we decided to go with the NY Virtuosi string quartet for the ceremony and cocktail hour, and had a DJ for the post-dinner dancing (with a surprise addition of an electric violinist)! Peter, the group’s manager, was extremely helpful and responsive and helped us to come up with a tailor-made musical experience for everyone in attendance. The musicians were so talented that we felt a little bad we didn’t have a larger audience and a proper stage! Days later and we still have guests mentioning the performances — classical music for the ceremony, and contemporary music for the cocktail hour — and just how great it was! So, in short, if you’re on the fence – I would suggest going for it! You will not be disappointed!

New York Virtuosi played our wedding ceremony music as a string trio. They were really easy to work with, designed a program tailored specifically to what we were looking for, and executed perfectly on the day of the wedding. Many of our guests commented on how wonderful the music was. They really did a great job, and we were lucky to have found them.

Perfect score all around! If you want to elevate your party or event to the next level of awesomeness, HIRE THE New York Virtuosi with their very unique electric violin performance. We found them on Google and hired them for our wedding ceremony and wedding reception. Peter and everyone else were a pleasure to work with, they were very accommodating when it came to special requests, and, of course, they rocked. Everyone was dancing like crazy until the end, which of course came too soon. We would hire these guys again in a heartbeat. In fact, I find myself trying to come up with an excuse to throw another party so we can have them back!

New York Virtuosi did an amazing job at our wedding. They absolutely nailed it. Peter Kiral is such a skilled and incredible violinist. The seamless fusion of the DJ’s music and Peter’s electric violin had EVERYONE glued to the dance floor. It was hypnotic. When you can get 60 year olds, 40 year olds, 20 year olds and teens out on the same dance floor all night, you are doing something amazing. I want to a heartfelt thank New York Virtuosi for making our wedding a huge success and the talk of the town.

We hired New York Virtuosi for my daughters wedding at the River House at Chelsie Piers. It was absolutely perfect!
We had a string quartet for the ceremony, so classy, crystal clear and lovely… and Peter played the electric violin through the cocktail hour and stayed for the reception to accompany the songs played by DJ Jake. It was more than we had asked for and I felt so fortunate that they added this dimension of music to the evening. It was very very cool. Everyone loved it! Jake was wonderful too. He played everything we asked for and downloaded more for my daughter and son in law. They were very gracious and accommodating.
Everyone remarked on how awesome the music was and enjoyed dancing to the end. You simply cannot go wrong if you hire them. Peter responds to all emails and questions promptly and is on board from the beginning. Thank you so much for making her wedding even more special.
