Sage performed the songs we requested impeccably. She was a pleasure to work with and at a great cost. We really enjoyed working with her. Sage made our special moment all that more special. Would recommend her to friends and family, as well as consider hiring her for future events.

Sage was great to work with. She was super communicative and responded quickly. Her song listing and samples made her an easy choice for our wedding! Many guests complimented the music during the ceremony so I'm very happy to have chosen her. I actually didn't work with her at all in person, but we gave her the ceremony outline and she worked with the venue coordinator. Everything went flawlessly.

Thank you Sage!

I love how super chill and fun she is. She's really cool too and makes it fun working with her. Her place is really relaxing too so I always enjoy walking in for a lesson.

We had the pleasure of having Sage play solo cello at our wedding ceremony. She was wonderful! My father even told me afterwards that one of the best highlight of the wedding was her music. She is also very pleasant to work with and replies to emails promptly.

My son hasn't taken violin for a long time. Sage was very patient and professional as she made him comfortable about starting back up again.

It's weird because I didn't actually get to meet them in person because I was out taking pictures when they arrived but Hello Cello blew me away! We talked via email to arrange everything and Sage was super responsive the entire time. I actually had them learn two new songs not in their catalog and they NAILED IT! I literally started to cry before I walked down the aisle partly because the song I asked them to play is from one of my favorite movies (Desree "Kissing You" it was a great choice, check it out) and they played it so beautifully. I can literally still hear their strings in my head. They set the perfect tone and mood for the entire ceremony and if I was you, I'd hire them now before their calendar fills up. Such an easy and attentive vendor to work with, one of my favorites!

Sage was amazing! Hired her for a cello/violin duo for my wedding. She kept in contact throughout the process, was able to find all the songs I requested (some were pretty obscure), and she and Helen played beautifully. We received a ton of compliments on the music, and it was awesome to hear my favorites as a string duo.

COCKTAIL HOUR

Sage and Helen provided the music for our wedding ceremony on Sunday, September 18, 2016 as a violin and cello duo and they did a fantastic job! They were actually our second choice but they offered an amazing deal for two people for one hour so we decided to go with them (and we were not disappointed). It took us a little bit to select our music, but thankfully Sage was able to provide us with a wonderful selection of classical and contemporary music to pick from. We also had 3 additional musical selections (Star Wars, Star Trek, and The Legend of Zelda) that we wanted to incorporate into our ceremony. Sage and Helen were able to accurately and expertly integrate these pieces at no additional charge to us. We were both ecstatic when he heard them during the ceremony. It was the cherry on top. Even with a last minute musician substitution, everything turned out perfect. Our communication was mostly through e-mail but the initial phone conversation we had really helped to get us all on the same page. Sage was very responsive as we went back and forth with the music as well as some contract revisions we had requested. We would absolutely recommend Sage and Helen to anyone looking for top notch musicians for their wedding ceremony. Our only regret is that we didn’t get a chance to say goodbye because we were rushed away for pictures. We also forgot to mention that they totally could have stayed for the cocktail hour to indulge in drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Sorry!

Brit is an incredibly talented and GIFTED musician ... But even better polite respectful and FILLED with energy and passion for the art! Those looking should CONTRACT HER!

PRIVATE VIOLIN LESSONS

Sage taught violin to our 4 year old for 2 months until we moved out of state. She was patient and caring and I could see my daughter's progress from week to week. Also, she did lessons in our home which was extremely convenient and she had some flexibility with her schedule. Easy to work with.

FIRST DANCE

We initially hired Sage and her colleague Cassie to play strings at our wedding ceremony. When we discovered Sage is also a talented vocalist/guitarist, we hired her to sing/play for our cocktail hour AND she played our first dance live. She put a ton of time into preparing, and it showed. Everything was perfect and I really appreciate her level of dedication. Thank you Sage & Cassie!
