"Jared Shapiro and Aurora Music Productions were a wonderful part of our wedding day. Jared was very helpful in finding the music we wanted to hear during our ceremony in advance of the big day, and he was great to work with throughout the entire process. The string duo sounded fantastic and we got many compliments from our guests!
--J. Browning

"Dear Mr Shapiro: I want to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful performance your trio gave at my son's wedding on June 8. The elegance and majesty of your music matched or exceeded that of the surrounding mountains. Your selections were perfect for the occasion and drew many compliments from our guests. Thank you again for your hard work in preparing as well as the splendid delivery."

--E.N. Gault

"Jared Shapiro and musicians provided our wedding music at First Congregation Church and the music for our reception at the Equinox."

"Jared was attentive, professional and helped us realize our vision for the day. He and his trio played beautiful renditions of music that we selected for our wedding and were able to seemlessly transition into a more upbeat but elegant series of jazz and salsa influenced pieces for our reception."

"Jared worked with us in a thoughtful and supportive way. He always picked up the phone and returned our calls promptly to discuss our music selections, go over logistics and made helpful suggestions which made the process feel like a creative & collaborative one."

"I highly recommend Jared and Aurora Music Productions for any Vermont wedding event."

--Katherine Ruiz-Mellott

"We did not know too much about wedding ceremony music, but we knew we didn't want a standard line-up of songs, we wanted to have some different choices. Jared was fabulous in suggesting additional processional and recessional marches that we loved; music that had not been overplayed at every other wedding. He also incorporated the traditional Pachabel's Canon, which was the couple's favorite piece."

"Our church required that we hire their organist even though we were planning to have string instruments. Jared spoke directly to the organist to coordinate all the music. This helped us tremendously, especially since we were from out of town! It was a pleasure working with such a professional group; Aurora made the string music at our destination wedding surreal!"
