Good morning Lucie,

A big thank you to your excellent quartet. Everyone was mesmerized with the beautiful pieces they played. I was glad to choose popular tunes as everybody was humming (and dancing) with the music.

Very professional and friendly with the utmost professionalism.

I am so happy that I made the correct choice with Stringspace.

All the best to all of you.

Best regards,

Geneth Costa
