Sarah Marsh created the classical musician network, Symphony Sounds, while she was studying cello performance at DePaul University's School of Music amongst members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
What began as a few simple requests from friends to perform at their weddings, has blossomed into a thriving business success story. Performing hundreds of weddings and events every year, Symphony Sounds has the unique qualifications to create beautiful music for your event.
Symphony Sounds ensembles and musicians have performed all over the country and world to critical acclaim. Most notably, Symphony Center of Chicago with Yo-Yo Ma, Carnegie Hall for a live appearance, The Art Institute for private fundraisers, The United Center for the Chicago Bulls, & The Allstate Arena.
