Dear Michael, I wanted to send you a quick note of thanks to you and your group for a fantastic job at our wedding in May. Although we wern't able to enjoy the music as music as our family & friends that day, we have gotten feed-back that you were wonderful (especially from our 10 year-old cousin, who "played along" with you with her recorder). Everything we heard (ourselves and via our guests) was that the music was beautiful! Thank you for helping to make our day special and memorable for us! Sincerely, Kathleen & Brian (Glen Manor) 

Dear Michael, Allegro Chamber Players: Simply amazing! Thank you so much for the incredible music you supplied at our wedding at Linden Place. My walk down the isle was perfect! I couldn't believe how wonderful the piece I selected sounded. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance that day to meet you and thank you in person. You were a joy to work with! Professional, thorough, & talented! Thank you again, Teresa + Stephen (Linden Place) 

Dear Michael, Thank you for performing during our cocktail hour in April. We heard so many compliments from all age groups! We wish that we could have listened to you perform. Thank you for helping to make our special day so special! Sean & Becca (Kirkbrae Country Club, Lincoln, RI) 

Michael, Thank you so much for performing at our ceremony. You sounded wonderful. I wish that we had the chance to meet you in person. Thanks for everything and keep up the great music. Mr. & Mrs. Scott B. (Astor's Beechwood, Newport, RI) 

Dear Michael, Carlos and I would like to thank you and the entire group for making our wedding ceremony beautiful. Everyone enjoyed the music tremendously and still raves about it being classy and tasteful. It is a day that I will never forget and you and your group played a major part. You were very professional to work with and a joy to deal with. Thank you! Kristen & Carlos (St. Elizabeth's Church, Bristol,RI) 

Dear Michael, Thank you so much for the beautiful music you and your trio provided for our wedding. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect!!! I could not have imagined anything more perfect and beautiful. I do have one regret though, I was not around to hear you play during the cocktail portion of the wedding. All of our guests raved about the wonderful music that you played. Thank you again for all your help in preparing our wedding. All the best, Tina & Ryan 

Dear Mike, Michael and I would like to thank you very much for the wonderful job you did at our wedding. I can't begin to tell you about all the compliments we have gotten about your music. I thought the music at the church was great. It made the ceremony very special to both Michael and I. I heard that the music at the reception during the cocktail hour was also very good, and elegant. (Unfortunately we did not get to hear you, since we were running late.) I also wanted to comment on how easy it was setting up the music arrangements with you. It is great that you are able to do it over the phone, how convenient! Once again I would like to offer a note of thanks for making our wedding very memorable. I will be sure to recommend you to anyone in need of musicians. Sincerely, Amy and Michael B., Somerset, MA 

Allegro Chamber Players, Tony and I want to thank you for being a part of our wedding! We were so happy and satisfied with you and couldn't have made a better choice! We still have people asking us for your name, which we will surely pass on! Thank you again so much. Andrea & Tony 

Hello Michael, I just wanted to tell you how pleased we were with the music at Sarah and Matt's wedding on Saturday. It was just beautiful, as expected. I was disappointed that I didn't get to meet you, but the logistics didn't permit. I'm so glad that you were recommended to us, as I think that the ensemble added so much more to the ceremony than just an organ would have. Thanks also for your efficiency in all our communications beforehand. It gave me peace of mind knowling that you were ontop of things. Denise D. (Aldrich Mansion, Warwick,RI) 

Dear Michael, Thank you so very much for being a part of our daughter's wedding. Your music was just perfect throughout the ceremony and reception. I also want to thank you for your assistance with the ceremony program. You were a pleasure to work with. Sincerely, Nancy & Roman (Belle Mer, Newport, RI) 

Dear Michael, We want to thank you again for the beautiful music at our wedding! We truly appreciate all the time you spent with us beforehand in helping us to choose the perfect selections. Warm Regards, Jill & Rob (Officer's Club, Newport, RI) 

To the Allegro Chamber Players, We want to thank you for adding your wonderful musical skills to our wedding. Our guests were so very impressed at the live music. It was simply beautiful! We will recommend you to our friends, if any of them were inspired by us to get married in Southern New England. Happy New Year! Warmly, Aubrey & Owen R. (Kay Chapel / Hotel Viking, Newport, RI) 

To Whom It May Concern: It is with great pleasure that I express my consummate satisfaction with the musical presentation of Mr. Mike Monte and his group of musicians, ALLEGRO CHAMBER PLAYERS. The Allegro Chamber Players provide a truly fantastic musical background to any special event. In my case, the occasion was my daughter's wedding. Upon entering the church, guests were greated with a most pleasant and elegant selection of melodic musical pieces. Many guests expressed their appreciation of the beautiful and unique qualities of the music they had been treated to. This elegant chamber music was continued as part of the reception after the church activities. Again, many of the guests found time to compliment our choice of music accompaniment. It surely added an outstandingly unique touch to a very important and memorable occasion. I recommend this outstanding group of musicians very highly. It certainly helped make our very exciting day truly special. Sincerely, Robert T., Swansea, MA 

To Whom It May Concern: This is a letter of recommendation for the Allegro Chamber Players. I hired this group of exceptional musicians for my son's college graduation party. After a recommendation from a friend, I listened to a tape that the group had made. It was wonderful. I spoke to Mr. Michael Monte, the group's organizer and "booked" with them. Mr. Monte was extremely accommodating in playing all my requests, in fact, he even "transposed" some music that was not in his repertoire, just for my son. I was extremely pleased with the group, their appearance, and professionalism. I did "shop around" prior to the function, and, I feel that the Allegro Chamber Players group was very reasonable in their fee for this service. I do sing professionally myself, so I am not a "lay person" in evaluating the quality of this group. I highly recommend the Allegro Chamber Players for any celebration. Susan H., Lakeville, MA 

Dear Mike, Thank you so much for the beautiful Chamber Music for my daughter's wedding at the Stone House Club on May 15, 1999! The music was perfect for the setting and the ceremony! It was a magical day for us and made that way because of you. Sincere Appreciation, Susan K., Somerset, MA

Dear Mike, Thank you so much for adding such a wonderful touch to our daughter's wedding by playing both at the church and the cocktail reception. Your group, the Allegro Chamber Players, was outstanding, and we are especially grateful for your resourcefulness in finding us a soloist at the last minute. Her voice as she sang Ave Maria brought tears to many eyes. She was simply magnificent! We were so pleased with the selections you helped our daughter and son-in-law make. Your experience and guidance resulted in the perfect balance of music that may not have happened if you hadn't guided us. Your professional manner and quiet assistance in reassuring the bridal party as you prepared them for the long walk down the aisle and your concern and attention prior to the wedding were sincerely appreciated. We recommend the Allegro Chamber Players and their vocal soloist with no reservations. They were outstanding! (and I have very high standards that they had to meet....) Many Thanks, Jane S., Dartmouth, MA 

Dear Mike and Co., I am sorry that we never got a formal introduction. In any case Eric & I wanted to write and thank you for the BEAUTIFUL music. You all were truly excellent and gave our wedding ceremony CLASS. We thank for all your efforts to suit our musical needs. Never hesitate to ask for a reference! Thanks again, Heather and Eric M., Warwick, RI

Dear Michael, The music you provided at my daughter Robin's wedding November 7th was truly the highlight of the whole day. The music in church was absolutely beautiful and really set the mood. Most of the guests have never heard chamber music played in church before and really enjoyed the musical selections. A number of guests have told me it was the most moving ceremony they had ever seen and I really believe that you contributed to that. Playing at White's during the cocktail hour made it extra special also. Doing "Time To Say Goodbye" was the icing on the cake. Well, I hope to hear you play again soon. Take care, Diane P., Fall River, MA 

Hi Mike, I just wanted to thank you and your group for doing such a wonderful job at our July 24th wedding at Roger Williams Casino. I apologize for shifting you guys inside at the last minute when the wedding was moved inside. I hope that you & your instruments did not get wet. The weather is one factor that you cannot control. We received many compliments from the guests on the ceremony & cocktail music. We were very happy with your work and will definitely recommend you. Thanks again. Lynda and Jim H., Attleboro, MA 

Dear Mike Monte and The Allegro Chamber Players, Jennifer and I wanted to take the time to thank you for making our wedding ceremony so beautiful. The beautiful music that your group performed really made the ceremony flow and seem "heavenly". A true gauge of your talents was displayed upon our recent viewing of our wedding video. As we viewed the ceremony, your music played in the background with such beauty and clarity that it sounded like it was added in post production. Our wedding ceremony was very special thanks to your contribution. We are greatful for your professionalism and it is our pleasure to recommend your group to any prospective customer. Sincerely, Ed and Jennifer L., Dartmouth, MA 

Dear Allegro Chamber Players, Mike, you made my wedding Mass complete! Thank you for your help in choosing the music. We received so many compliments on the music. (Maybe so referrals for you!) It was everything I dreamed it would be. Thanks again! Sincerely, Elaine and Edward M., Ashway, RI 

Dear Mike, We wanted to thank you for your incredible performance at our Wedding Mass on October 21st! Your music is both beautiful and inspiring. It added a special dimension to the ceremony. We are looking forward to watching the video to hear your music again. I'm so sorry that I did not get to meet you in person. Your professionalism and warm manner is appreciated. We will recommend the Allegro Chamber Players to anyone. Deb and Jeff R., Warwick, RI 

Mike, Thank you so much for your services at our wedding. The ceremony music was absolutely beautiful and everyone commented on it. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Thank you again for making our ceremony perfect. Lisa and Ray M., Fall River, MA 

Allegro Chamber Players, Thank you all for providing such beautiful music for our wedding ceremony! We were very impressed with how well (and quickly) you gelled with our vocalists. Thanks for remaining so calm and professional even though things were running a bit behind schedule. Most of all, thanks for creating the perfect ambience for our love story! Love, Staci and Jason G. Somerset, MA

Mike, I just wanted to thank you and Allegro for the beautiful job you did at our wedding on July 23rd. Our guests, as well as ourselves, really enjoyed the elegance and beauty you added to our day. Thank you again, Cari and Rob P., Cranston, RI Jennifer L., East Syracuse, NY
