I’ve hired Adrian of Quartetto Solo for hundreds of weddings and events over the last fourteen years. He is an excellent violinist and our clients have always had nothing but great things to say about him. Adrian is a true professional, and knows what it takes to make an event run smoothly. He is my first choice when booking a violinist for weddings or any other event, and he is a real asset to the String Theory Chamber Ensemble. I recently had the chance experience Adrian’s new project, Quartetto Solo, and to say I was impressed would be an understatement.

Phenomenal Musician and Wonderful Individual
I can't say enough about Adrian. He was courteous and professional from our first contact until we shook hands after the reception. He communicates clearly, responds quickly and does what he promises. His versatility with regard to musical genres was exactly what we needed since we love everything from jazz to classical to contemporary to R&B. His sound was full and clear and his technique impeccable. He was the perfect choice for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He plays violin with a very clear track to complete the sound of a string quartet.
Micheal N. from Chicago, IL on 8/26/2019
Adrian is extremely professional, amazingly talented, very personable and lights up the room with his beautiful music. Adrian worked for us at an event which thousands of people attended and there was an overwhelming response to both his music and personality. I would recommend Adrian for any sort of event and very much look forward to working with him again in the future! Thank you Adrian!

Best Violinist in Chicago!!!
Adrian was the best violinist I have ever worked with! My company coordinates over 40 conferences a year and Adrian gave one of the best performances we've ever seen. Our attendees loved him! If you need to work with someone in Chicago... Hire Quartetto Solo!!!
Giovana P. from Tampa, FL on August 21, 2019
Adrian was wonderful to work with. He was very accommodating and professional throughout the entire process. He was patient and met all of my needs/requests. I had a small ceremony along the river walk and requested a special song for the event. He was happy and willing to learn the new song just for our occasion. He was prompt and came with all of the proper equipment. I could not have asked for more. Thank you, Quartetto Solo, for making my special day one to remember!! Book him for your event. You will not be disappointed.
Shara R. from Houston, TX on 10/13/2019
We hired Adrian to entertain our attendees at our 2019 Chicago Build at McCormick Place, where we had thousands of people come through. He was professional, personable and a wonderful performer. We would recommend him for any type of event, and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Exactly what we wanted
Adrian was wonderful! His music is so beautiful and was exactly what we were looking for for our event. We loved that his song list included both new, older, and classical music to provide some variety in what was played and allowed for guests to recognize the music.
Would hire him again for an event!
Fabiola G. • May 10, 2022
Quartteto Solo elevated our event. He is very talented, professional and he was on time. He gave us his repertoire and we were able to choose our favorite tunes. All my guest still talking about him and I am pretty sure he will have some requests after the event. I will totally recommend him for any occasion.
Michelle N. • May 5, 2022
We were lucky enough to book Adrian for our occasion, his song list is extensive and his talent is undeniable. He created the most beautiful environment for my event. I look forward to having him back at my wedding!!

Beautiful Ambient Music Beautiful ambient violin music, performed by a true artist/musician (Adrian), created the perfect setting for my daughter's champagne brunch bridal shower. It brought elegance and enchantment to her event and everyone truly enjoyed themselves. I spoke to Adrian before the event, expressed the mood I wanted to achieve and he took it from there. The music was perfect and Adrian is a true professional!
Thank-you so much for sharing your gift with us!
Gayle P. • July 2, 2022
Adrian is a professional! There is not one aspect of his service that is not 100% spot on. His communication is timely, his music is wonderful, his timeliness is impeccable, and his ability to read the event is awesome. His violin music with piano accompaniment offered is exactly what any large or small event can use to add a fun and sophisticated aspect - he even learned new songs for a nominal fee for our event. Finally, his value for his fees is beyond a great deal! Loved Adrian and would have him back for a backyard BBQ or another family wedding. He is versatile!
Krystal • June 29, 2022
Adrian was thee BEST! He is professional responds to emails in a timely fashion and shows up and performs his BEST! He was one of the highlights of our wedding. Our guest were in aww walking in and hearing him perform. I’m trying to think of my next event where I can have him again. Don’t second guess book him, you won’t regret it.

MY GRADUATION EVENT
I want to thank you for such an AMAZING AWESOME PERFORMANCE! You gave my event a bonus that NO ONE expected. Most importantly, your professionalism and talent made my event absolutely special! It was truly a night to remember! Thank you! There are people asking for your information to have you perform at their event.

Cocktail Hour - Wedding
Myself & my now husband had a great experience with Adrian. We booked him very close to our wedding date; with a last minute decision to have a live component during our Cocktail Hour at our wedding. He did a perfect mix of Irish Celtic & contemporary music. It was the perfect decision for our Chicago St. Patrick's Day - wedding. Adrian was so easy to communicate with, very professional, fun, worked well with our DJ. My only regret is that with the venue setup & our schedule- I didn't get to see Adrian in action. Many friends & family have all given rave reviews. I can't wait to see my videographer's footage & have my fingers crossed Adrian will be featured. I would highly recommend Adrian & would work with him again should I have an event arise with a music component.
Angela R. • November 6, 2021
Adrian’s performance exceeded beyond our expectations. He was absolutely amazing to say the least. His performance was simply breathtaking. Literally worth every single penny! I will definitely be hiring him in the near future. Thank you Adrian for making my parents 30th year wedding anniversary an unforgettable night.
Paul • November 29, 2021
Quartetto Solo will elevate your event
Adrian is such a great performer as well as a person. He was so easy to work with and so talented. He performed background music for a pre-wedding cocktail party. He elevated the event perfectly. He was a touch of class without drawing any attention away from the celebration. We will definitely book him again.
Jennifer K. • October 4, 2021
Amazing cocktail hour
Adrian was perfect in every way, extremely professional and very very talented. Our guests loved him just as much as we did, thank you for making our day extra special!
Katerina S. • September 24, 2021
Adrian was very prompt and professional. He even stayed longer to adjust to our cocktail hour. His playlist and renditions of all my favorite love songs really added to the love story I wanted to capture for my wedding. Everything was magical!
Arif A. • May 19, 2021
Look no further!
Adrian amazed us with his beautiful performance! He was very professional, showed up early, went over cues with officiant, and was great in every way. If you're looking for someone to help you set the perfect mood through music at your event, Adrian is the one. Thank you again for helping make our day perfect.
Jennie C. • March 7, 2021
Cannot possibly speak more highly of Adrian. He did a phenomenal job during our very strange zoom wedding. He was truly perfect, and carried the show through some tech issues, as well as some nervous speakers. All of my zoom guests could hear him the entire time and loved the music. Just a great job well done.
Vicky M. • November 3, 2020
Talented and Professional
Adrian was a dream to work with. I chose him because of his good reviews and after listening to his recordings. His violin playing was fantastic but equally impressive he learned the bride and groom’s favorite song and agreed to play several Irish tunes not on his playlist.
Laura B. • October 10, 2020
I can't say enough good things about Adrian's performance. We had a small outdoor wedding, and having him play before, during, and after the ceremony completely elevated the event. Even the other vendors were impressed! Adrian was punctual, polite, and of course, an excellent musician. Added bonus- his repertoire includes rock/grunge songs (our first look was to November Rain, much to the amusement of our bridal party!)
Aliyah A. • September 15, 2020
Elegant and professional
Adrian played the violin at our wedding for our cocktail hour, our first dance, and throughout dinner. He has an extensive collection that he plays from and it is guaranteed to add elegance to any event. We had a royal wedding theme, so it topped off the evening and made it extremely elegant. Additionally, Adrian was prompt and very responsive to requests and messages. 10/10 would highly recommend. He made the evening extremely memorable.
Williams • July 29, 2020
Perfect for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour!
Adrian, we are so thrilled that we saw you performing in a park a few weeks before our wedding! We weren't sure how we were going to handle our ceremony music, and you were the perfect solution. We love your library of contemporary songs and how the violin and your backtracks put a different spin on them that is still romantic and familiar. Our guests raved about how much they liked your music during cocktail hour as well. Thank you so much, and I will definitely keep you in mind for any future events!!
Jason R. • July 9, 2020
Best Decision of our Wedding
Adrian elevated our May 30th, 2020 street wedding (during the COVID 19 pandemic) to a special place. His soulful sound, stature, warmth, and kindness was the talk of the wedding. We had to plan and alter our wedding several times and made a late call to add live music. With our affinity for cello and violin, we did quick research and found Adrian (Quartetto Solo). His reviews were tremendous and he did not disappoint.
Throughout the entire process he was communicative, cordial, flexible, and professional. We'll go to him every time we need that special sound. We give our highest recommendation.
Kim R. • December 8, 2019
Adrian is amazing. His music is wonderful and truly made our party very special and memorable. We received so many complements on the music . We especially liked his ability to play pop music complained with more traditional music. What a great blend! We would him again in a heart beat!

Juan and Reyna Wedding ceremony
Where do we start. adrian is as professional as it gets. He did an amazing job and made everything sound so beautiful. Our guests were so amazed on the great job he did. He made everyone feel very comfortable with the choice of song selection he was playing while our guest were waiting and arriving. Adrian was so friendly and always kept in touch from the first day we booked until wedding day. 100% recommend, you wont be disappointed. Thank you for making our special day even more special with your excellent performance.
Adrian was great to work with. Very professional and on time. The music for my wedding ceremony and after was beautiful and everyone loved it. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a musician.
Connie L. from Douglas, MI on 9/10/2019
Adrian is incredible! He played for an event that I organized and I couldn't be happier. He is an exceptional violinist and all the guests loved him. For anyone who is looking, look no further. We were mesmerized by his talent.
Shataj S. from Chicago, IL on 8/2/2019
Adrian is so incredibly talented. He did an absolutely amazing performance for our ceremony and cocktail hour reception!!! We had so many compliments from our guests. “This guy is awesome! Where did you ever find him?” Proud to highly recommend Quartetto Solo violin through gigmasters to everyone!! His music selection was awesome and exactly what we were looking for. This was definitely one of the highlights of our wedding day! I look forward to the next time I can use him again!
Terri A. from Lake Geneva, WI on 5/25/2019
Adrian was extremely professional, gracious and an amazing performer. I hired him to perform for my wife's birthday at a private setting at a rooftop lounge. He came early and had already set up before we even arrived at the event. He performed all the songs we requested of him, and by the time he finished, other patrons of the lounge also applauded his performance. My wife and I really appreciated his professional demeanor throughout the event and the next time we hold another event we will definitely hire him again. I would heartily recommend Adrian to anyone who wants a violinist for a private performance.
Amit S. from Chicago, IL on 5/15/2019
Four for One!
Professional, punctual, and personable, Adrian provided a unique listening experience as a one-man quartet, blending his live violin with an electronic accompaniment. The classical melodies added a touch of elegance to our event, while the contemporary tunes provided a playfulness and sense of familiarity among our guests. It was light listening, helping create a calm atmosphere for those in attendance. All our guests were complimentary of his work, and there would be no hesitation to hire him again for a future occasion, especially given his easy-going persona and demeanor. It was a real pleasure to have him be a part of our outdoor event; simply fantastic! And overall, you really can’t argue getting “four” musicians for the price of one!
Louis C. from Chicago, IL on June 25, 2019
Quartetto solo is very professional very nice, highly recommended! I got so many compliments from my friends about his excellent performance, if we get a chance we will definitely invite him again, he will never disappoint you!

Birthday Party (Adult)•Reviewed on September 7, 2021•From Oak Lawn, IL
Thank you for being the catalyst to meeting Mr. Adrian Morris of Quartetto Solo. I planned a 90th Birthday Party for my mom and 90 of her closest friends and family and EVERYONE raved about the musician. Adrian Morris has the "GIFT" when it comes to melodious music. His selections were appropriate for our venue and was universally appreciated by ALL in the room. He plays a delightful "NAME THAT TUNE" session which featured selections from operatic themes, big band show tunes, classical favorites and modern movie themes. It was the best investment, ever!!!!

Wine Tasting Party•Reviewed on February 22, 2020•From Willowbrook, IL
I recently hired Adrian to perform at a wine tasting. He took the event to the next level. Everyone there LOVED him. His talent and unique performance with "full quartet" acoustics set him apart, and he's a highly professional communicator. If you're looking for a violinist, Quartetto Solo should be at the top of your list.

Wedding Reception•Reviewed on September 14, 2019•From Hampshire, IL
We had Adrian come to play at our daughter's wedding ceremony at the church, and then during the cocktail hour at the reception, which was held in a different location. He was very professional in communicating with us beforehand and during our time with him at the wedding. He arrived on time, and was self-sufficient for the entire day. His music sounded great. I loved that he had the digital accompaniment to his violin. It sounded so much better than the violin alone. I would definitely hire him again! He was great to work with!

Baby Shower•Reviewed on November 14, 2021•From Wilmette, IL
Adrian was wonderful to work with! He was responsive and professional. I hired him to play at a friend's baby shower and she absolutely loved it. It was a very special detail to our event. His music sounded amazing and his technique of playing with other recorded instruments made the sound richer and fuller. Thank you so much Adrian!
Very professional and talented
Was perfect for our father’s funeral touched our hearts!
Priscilla G. from Chicago, IL on October 1, 2019
Adrian very pleasant and accommodating. Quality of music A+!
Rick P. from Chicago, IL on August 26, 2019
We could not have picked a better ensemble for our wedding and reception. We had Quartetto Solo play for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner portion of the reception, and they were great and able to accommodate our needs. During dinner, they played a mix of classical and modern music that the crowd actually got into. Adrian was very professional, but also had a great personality. He also has a wonderful speaking voice, and he even made a few announcements for us. It was very refreshing to find an artist that is so versatile and fun! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a quartet that can play the classical stuff, but also look to have a little fun with some modern music.
Mary J. from Wilmette, Il on 5/19/2018
If you are looking for a professional musician with an elegant style, this is your group. Quartetto Solo played at my daughter’s wedding classical music, and at the cocktail hour modern music, to delight our guests. Our guests really enjoyed the diversified music selection. We loved that they used a beautiful tower speaker to be amplified. We had 250 guests, and we could hear the music spread throughout the courtyard. Thank you Adrian!
Rose V. from Oak Park, Il on 10/13/2018
We hired Quartetto Solo for our wedding and they were the hit of the event. They played our ceremony and cocktail hour. Everyone loved having them there and enjoyed the modern instrumental music. I received so many compliments about them. They really helped make our night perfect. I would hire them again! Loved them!
Jessica L. from Chicago, Il on 10/28/2018
This ‘group’ was so professional and talented. It elevated the ceremony and cocktail hour to another level!! So beautiful and romantic. It really does sound like a live string quartet. I will keep them in mind for all my future events!
Valerie G. from Chicago, Il on 4/21/2018
Adrian of Quartetto Solo was easy to work with, professional, and was able to lineup the perfect music to play for the reception and wedding dinner. I was extremely pleased with the quality of the performance – both the volume and beauty of the music helped make my wedding day perfect, and I strongly recommend them to anyone.
Cindy C. from Chicago, Il 7/30/2017
Quartetto Solo proved to be a major reason for our wedding being as memorable and special as it turned out to be. Our friends all raved about the music. In fact one of our guests has already decided to book him at several of his business events.
Ned K. from Highland Park, Il on 5/27/2017
Quartetto Solo was absolutely amazing, and we have gotten more compliments about their music at our wedding than any other vendor we had there. Thanks so much, I would recommend you to absolutely everyone!
Stephanie V. from Norridge, Il on 10/27/2017
Quartetto Solo did an amazing job at our wedding. Adrian is extremely talented, professional and made our day extra special with his beautiful music. I love that they have such a wide variety of songs and their recommended song list was very helpful when planning for the ceremony and cocktail hour. They play modern music but also traditional. I had many compliments from our wedding guests and the wedding venue owner was also impressed and will be adding them to their venue list.
Emily E. from Chicago, Il on 8/11/2018
Adrian’s music was a fantastic addition to our event! A plethora of compliments followed his performance at our awards dinner. If there was a letter grade above an "A", Quartetto Solo would be rated there in my book.
Chelsea S. from Chicago, Il on 11/17/2018
Quartetto Solo was the hit of our Christmas Party! I'm pretty sure Adrian knows every Christmas tune ever written. The party got very loud and 'festive', but the music was clearly heard everywhere in the ballroom. Top notch playing and equipment, we plan to hire him again. If you're looking for elegant string music that can be heard at a large function, this is your guy.
Edward S. from Chicago, Il on 12/14/2018
