  • It was incredible! I wasn’t a fan of the orchestra normally, but this was badass! The musicians were funny and great at their craft. Beautiful show
  • Sweet Water Strings played fabulously! The event was incredibly beautiful and relaxing! Would definitely attend one again!
  • What an amazing concert! It was my first time and I will definitely go again! My 2nd one is already purchased!
  • Loved the performance - loved the setting and would definitely attend another. Very talented quartet
  • Sweetwater Strings was incredible. What a show! Such lovely music from all string instruments. Eily was very entertaining. We loved the performance and will look forward to another candlelight show
  • Very nice. First timer so did not know what to expect. Had a great time.
  • We had a great time, and looking forward to future events.
  • A lovely and unique experience. The only thing that would have improved it would have been misters or fans to keep the audience cool.
  • The venue was great, the candle light atmosphere was beautiful. You can not control the weather and it was a little hot. But the quartet’s selection was magical, and I don’t like hard rock. Thank you
  • Soooo Good!! Will definitely see other shows!
  • A little shaky on the first couple of songs, but they hit their stride, so to speak, and had some fun with the crowd and rocked it out for the last several songs. The few early noticeable mistakes were more than made up for with some impressive runs and creative string renditions on the latter songs. These are entertaining evenings.
  • Great atmosphere, awesome music
  • Looking forward to doing this again.
  • A very enjoyable experience.
  • excellent experience
