We can provide many different musical groups for a variety of occasions. Don't just take our word for it. Read what some recent customers have had to say after working with us:
Geri was great at our wedding. She helped us fit the pieces we chose to our ceremony and
was very professional and pleasant to work with.
Thanks for helping us pull it off!
"The Palo Alto Philharmonic played for the National Psoriasis Foundation Gala as part of our VIP reception
and then our general cocktail reception. Their music was terrific and they were excellent entertainment.
Geri and her group are professional, easy to work with and very accommodating.
We highly recommend the Palo Alto Philharmonic for your next event!
"Geri and her group performed stunningly at my wedding. They played all of the music I asked for,
and beautifully. Our guests could not stop complimenting what a wonderful highlight to our ceremony
Palo Alto Philharmonic was. I would recommend them to anyone who would ask.
Thank you all for making
our day even more special and perfect!"
"Thanks so much for playing for the City of Mountain View's Commissioner's Dinner Friday night.
It was delightful and we received many comments about how much people enjoyed the music and what a nice classy touch it gave the whole event.
The Palo Alto Philharmonic sent an absolutely delightful 3 piece group that was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We will definitely use them again for events."
Mayor, City of Mountain View, California
"We highly recommend
Geri Actor and her team at the Palo Alto Philharmonic. We originally contracted Geri to provide us
with classical music at a family member's memorial service. Geri suggested a string trio, put together the musicians and
worked with us on the music selection. She made the planning process quick and easy. The day of the memorial, she and her team
arrived punctually on time and performed beautifully and consistently for three hours. Many of our guests commented on
their flawless music, and they greatly added to the occasion. We found their rates reasonable and we were happy to have
selected them for our event."
from the Araujo family
"We would highly recommend
musicians from The Palo Alto Philharmonic for your event. We contacted Geri for a string trio
for our garden party. To have the trio playing on our deck as our guests arrived added a classy touch to our event.
Geri was great to work with, she happily worked with us on the music we had requested to be played. The group arrived on time and played beautifully for 2hrs. All our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music. Thanks so much for making our event such a lovely afternoon."
from the The Jacksons, Palo Alto.
"We are extremely glad that we hired The Palo Alto Philharmonic Musicians
to play for our wedding ceremony.
They were very professional and pleasant to work with. We booked them months in advance and they were responsive
throughout the whole time. They were very accommodating in learning specific songs that we wanted to play during
our ceremony. With their fair and affordable prices, it was a no brainer! We would definitely recommend them
to anyone with live musician needs."
Colleen and Vince
"Thank you for playing at our wedding. You guys did a great job and made the ceremony musically beautiful."

"We hired members of the PAP on short notice to play a benefit concert at St
Mark's in PA. The program was not easy, and included Poulenc's Organ
Concerto in G Minor, as well as Faure's Requiem. The musicians were prompt
to every rehearsal, and extremely professional in their interpretation of
the music. I was absolutely delighted with the performance and wouldn't
hesitate to hire them again."
