“We hired this trio for our wedding and they were phenomenal! Everyone loved the music and the ambiance that the group created. Rob was very professional and a pleasure to work with-a big key to our awesome experience because we live several hours apart! Jon and I were often pulled away from the main event, and we wish we had heard more of the terrific trio. We are very grateful to Rob and company for asking us the right questions, guiding us down the right path and creating a unique wedding that truly reflected us as a couple.” -Amy DeRobertis (bride) February 2015



“Hudson Pro Musica did a beautiful job at our wedding. In addition to a lovely performance, Rob was a total pleasure to work with. He easily accommodated some special requests we had and was quick to respond to any questions during the weeks prior to the wedding. Ceremony musicians were one of the few “splurge” aspects of our wedding, and it was totally worth it. If we had to do it all over again (and thank God we don’t) we’d still definitely book these guys.” -Katherine Trahan (bride) November 2014



“Hudson Pro Musica String Trio did a fantastic job at our wedding. They were communicative prior to the date to make sure we had the music we wanted during the ceremony and were extremely professional during the performance. I would absolutely recommend the trio to anyone looking for string music for any kind of event.” -Eric Lebowitz (groom) October 2014



“Hudson Pro Musica delivered exactly what we wanted. They were great right off the bat and easy to deal with. We were initially drawn to them for their extensive repertoire which included a big variety of contemporary tunes. The group even arranged a 70s funk song they hadn’t previously played for us on extremely short notice and it sounded great on the strings when we walked down the aisle. I would highly recommend Hudson Pro Musica to any couple planning a wedding, or anyone wanting a string trio for a party.” -Marisa Scheinfeld (bride) September 2014



“We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to work with Hudson Pro Musica Trio. They provided such beauty and elegance to our ceremony. Rob was extremely patient with my hundreds of questions. The song choices were perfect, thank you so much for your help with that! Thanks to all three of helping to make our wedding day so special :)”  -Megan Mancini (bride) August 2014



“Rob Murphy worked carefully with me prior to the wedding to get a feel for what we wanted. I listened to many selections on his audio samples as well as iTunes samples from Pro Hudson Musica’s huge repertoire, figured out what we wanted, and we planned carefully over the phone. On the day, everything went perfectly. The string trio’s sound was gorgeous, filling the church with their soulful virtuosity. The timing for all the processionals and recessionals was perfect, as though we’d been rehearsing for weeks. The Psalm, meditational music, and Celtic Allelulia were sung so beautifully. Of the many (and you know there are many!) ways to spend money on your wedding, this was definitely among the very best spent. Thanks Rob and Hudson Pro Musica! Our guests (many of them musicians) have been raving about the music. It made the ceremony so much more meaningful for us all.” -Anne Llyod (mother of the bride) August 2014



“Hudson Pro Musica played at my wedding Mass and cocktail hour. They were absolutely amazing! Their repertoire is extensive – classical, modern, pop songs, current hits on the radio… They were professional and so nice to work with. When I needed advice, they were helpful and provided suggestions. I was so happy with the music; it was just want I wanted! The string music added the special touch that I was looking for. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!” -Lauren Kemmerer (bride) July 2014



“Rob and the crew were awesome. Of all of the Hudson Valley vendors and services we used, Rob was the most responsive as well as accommodating. We requested some songs that were not on their repertoire but they learned them and played them beautifully! I wont be getting married ever again but if I was I’d most definitely have Hudson Pro Musica play there!” -Rob Miller (groom) June 2014



“Thank you so much to Rob and Hudson Pro Musica for providing the most beautiful, classic, romantic, unforgettable music at our ceremony. The strings sounded so incredibly beautiful – I will never forget it! The music at cocktail hour was just lovely! Hudson Pro Musica is incredibly professional and easy to work with. I would recommend them in a heart beat!” -Katie Rudy (bride) June 2014



“Hudson Pro Musica provided ceremony music for our Wedding at Diamond Mills on 5/03/2014. Working with Rob from start to finish was great. He was very responsive via email and courteous as far as us deciding on our songs. Everything worked out so well and their music was absolutely beautiful. Our process was so seamless that I never got to have a conversation face to face to Rob but I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for making our ceremony harmoniously wonderful. I recommend Hudson Pro Musica to any bride searching for that something special for their wedding ceremony. This string trio can provide just that and beyond!” -Victoria Culver (bride) May 2014



“We used Hudson Pro Musica for our church ceremony and cocktail hour at our venue. They are amazing!! We had a violin/cello at the church and my husband really wanted an aucostic guitar/violin for the cocktail. After reaching out to Rob, he assured us he could find a guitarist he has worked with in the past, as Hudson Pro advertises as a string trio. Rob is easy to talk to and let us pick pieces we knew we wanted to hear and we trusted him to just go with the rest. Everything turned out beautiful!!!” -Nicole Chauvin (bride) May 2014 



“Very accommodating with music selection. Rob worked very close with my daughter and son- in- law music selections They understand how music moves the sole and they really made our daughters ceremony elegant but relaxed. So many of our family and friends were brought to tears listening to them. We highly recommend them.” -Ted Rathjen (father of the bride) August 2013 



“Amy and I would like to thank you for making our wedding ceremony memorable – filled with wonderful music.  You playing really added a beautiful touch to a very memorable day for us.”  -Amy and Jeff Como (bride and groom) October 2012



“Greg and I want to thank you for the wonderful music you played on our wedding day!  I’m really glad the weather worked out for the both of us : )  We are looking forward to hearing the beautiful music over every year when we watch our ceremony on our anniversary.”  -Jacqueline and Greg Euker (bride and groom) October 2012



“Hudson Pro Musica is a group of excellent musicians. They really set the tone for our ceremony. Rob and I spoke before the wedding to plan the ceremony music. He is friendly, very knowledgable about music and attentive to detail. I would recommend Hudson Pro Musica to anyone planning a wedding or other special event.” -Elaina Dionisopoulos (bride) August 2012



“Siobhan, I want to thank you, Robert, and Ling for playing at our wedding. Everyone loved the music!  You guys did a great job at the ceremony and cocktail hour.  Thank you.”  -Whitney Gordon (bride) June 2012



“I had my wedding this past June 2012 and the cellist and violinist I used for my ceremony and cocktail music were amazing. The wedding was outside and in an English garden. The music was perfect for my wedding location! Rob was excellent to work with; timely, great communicator, and very professional. I would use this vendor again for any party or event!” -Jacqueline Gregory (bride) June 2012



“Working with Rob and his team at Hudson pro musica was so seamless. We requested that they even learn a song for our ceremony, which they did and executed it perfectly! They also recorded their rehearsal so I could hear their practice and rehearsed with a friend of mine who was the vocalist. He also edited the arrangement to meet our needs. In addition, he had a great selection for the prelude, procession, and recession choices. It lent a very elegant touch to our ceremony and I found their prices very affordable compared to others in the area that were recommended to us. Plus, Rob is very easy to work with.”  -Cassandra Earley (bride) March 2012
