"Beautiful music for both our ceremony and cocktail hour!  They were responsive, timely, and collaborative in music selection.  I absolutely recommend them for anyone looking for a nice musical combination!!"

-Alicia McDonald

"I received many great comments about the music from my wedding.  It was elegant, beautiful, and the musicians were very professional.  I would definitely recommend The Silverwood Trio not only for their wonderful music, but also for their professionalism and customer service behind the scenes."

-Hazel Osborn

"If you want a trio for your wedding, look no further than this group!  All three are professional musicians and VERY talented at what they do.  They are quite accomodating with their music selection and have a vast library of selections.  When I needed to arrange some ceremony music, they were able to perform without a problem.  I cannot recommend this group highly enough!

-David and Sarah Sedlack    

"We were fortunate to have The Silverwood Trio perform in our daughter's wedding.  They certainly set the mood with elegance and we received so many compliments!  As a fellow musician, I can certainly attest to the fact that these women are extremely talented, well-schooled, and add 'class' to any occasion."
