Riverview Musicians Speak Out:

“A Riverview gig is a guaranteed good experience for the musician. Rebecca hires the best chamber players in Boston and the musicians are always really happy to play together. We come to each job knowing that we will play beautifully together in any setting; so it's not only great for the client, but musically fulfilling for us as performers. I always leave Riverview gigs feeling fulfilled and well taken care of.” — Jodi Hagen, violinist 


“I have been playing with Riverview Chamber Players for a number of years now and have consistently been impressed with Rebecca's thoroughness in preparing for each event; everything is in order. She hires excellent musicians who are a pleasure to work with, so that the musical result is of the highest caliber. Because of this, I am always glad to play for a Riverview event.”—Beth Welty, violinist 


“ I have worked with Rebecca Strauss and Riverview Chamber Players for over five years and have always been overwhelmingly impressed with the quality and efficiency of execution on Rebecca's part. Her services are always impeccably organized and even in weddings, where one often finds a certain amount of unpredictability, everything is handled smoothly and with the greatest of care. The best part of doing a Riverview wedding is knowing that everything is going to go easily, and that we as musicians can just relax and focus on playing.”—Rafael Popper-Keizer, cellist 


“As a violinist, my experiences playing with the Riverview Chamber Players are especially rewarding.  Much thoughtful consideration is given to forming the personnel for each ensemble in order to combine musicians with just the right chemistry to play in an inspired way. I always feel as though I'm contributing something important and memorable to a family’s special occasion.” —Julia McKenzie, violinist
