We understand how stressful it can be to organize your wedding.
We hope that our friendly, helpful approach and our familiarity with the course of events at weddings will help your day run smoothly.
The Shrewsbury String Quartet has been playing together since 1999 and performs at over 200 weddings and corporate events each year.
We offer a wide repertoire consisting of lighter classical selections, show tunes, Beatles and popular music.
We have an extensive repertoire of liturgical music from the Catholic, Protestant and Jewish faiths.
The musical selections can be tailored to fit your ceremony.
There is very little difference in the sound of most of the professional string quartets that play weddings in Philadelphia, South Jersey, and Delaware.
What sets the Shrewsbury String Quartet apart from the others is how easy it is to work with us.
Your wedding day is the most anticipated event of your life.
We enjoy playing weddings and will try to make your day extra special.
We understand how stressful it can be to organize your wedding and know that untold thought and preparation are directed toward, and centered on your special day.
No one thing provides more romance, ambiance, intimacy and elegance for a wedding ceremony than the addition of a string quartet.
We provide a wonderful background and set an elegant and romantic mood, allowing for conversation among guests, require no amplification, and will enhance both formal and informal occasions.
One of the most frequent complaints that we hear from brides is how difficult it is to get in contact with some other contract musicians and that it takes an unreasonably long time for some of them to answer emails or return phone calls.
We pride ourselves in answering emails and returning phone call immediately.
If you do not hear back from us within a few hours, we probably did not get your message so please try again.
We have performed at several hundred weddings and are very familiar with the timing of the music. Other quartets may sound fine, but if they play at the wrong time or do not end the song at the proper time, can cause unnecessary stress for the bride.
There are some quartets that will not perform at a Catholic Mass without an organist.
The Shrewsbury String Quartet is very familiar with Catholic masses and non-mass ceremonies and we are very comfortable with or without an organist.
We get many compliments on the way we sound and we hear from a lot of brides that they appreciate how easy we are to work with.
We will work very closely with you helping you choose music that is perfect for you.
If there is music that you want that we do not have in our repertoire, we will do our best to find it for you.
You will find that we are very easy to work with and most of our brides have become our friends.
If you would like to see us play live, we can let you know where we will be performing in the near future.

If your venue requires your vendors to have Liability Insurance, we can provide them with a certificate naming them as an additional insured.
We realize that a lot of newer cars do not have CD players.
We are making our demo available on a thumb drive.
If you order a demo please specify which format you prefer.
