I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance…
a church filled with flowers, friends, and beautiful music…
I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for…
He said “one that would make you my wife”

Shrewsbury String Quartet  playing Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel

We offer a choice of hiring String Quartet, Trio, or Duo.

A typical wedding ceremony:

Quartet $775.00
Trio $650.00
Duo $525.00

For a typical wedding ceremony,  we start playing prelude music about a half hour  before your ceremony starts as your guests start arriving. We will play a special selection for the mothers and grandmothers to be seated,  processional music for the bridesmaids  to walk down the aisle and  special music for the bride to walk down the aisle.

We can also play music during the ceremony,  for a unity candle lighting ceremony, communion, etc. We will then play for the bride and groom  to recess from the altar,  and postlude music as your guests are leaving.

We will work very closely with you  helping you choose music that is perfect for you. If there is music that you want that is not in our repertoire,  we will do our best to find it for you.

 We are pleased to welcome same sex couples.

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.

Outdoor Weddings:

We want to provide the best possible performance for your event. Outdoor ceremonies create more challenges for musicians. We have to consider weather conditions and insects.  Our instruments can be damaged by extreme temperatures, rain, or direct sunlight.

We enjoy playing outside under many conditions, however what is acceptable for a guest for comfort  is more difficult for musicians to deal with  when trying to perform our best for your event. Please be considerate and provide a safe, comfortable location for us to perform.

The Shrewsbury String Quartet adds expressive and touching music to many funerals and memorials every year;  we feel that at funerals and memorials  we are part of the Liturgy.

If classical music was important to your loved one in life, having the Shrewsbury String Quartet play at their memorial service is a special way to honor their memory.

    Dear Tony and Fellow Musicians, Thank you for an amazing performance at our wedding ceremony on June 4,  at The Church of the Incarnation. To be honest with you guys, we were a little skeptical as to how you were going to pull everything together without even rehearsing with the singer and the priest. But Wow…everything went smoothly. It was perfect! We didn’t think there was a dry eye in the church after you guys were done with the Ave Maria. Most importantly, when we were looking for vendors, aside from having experience in their venue, we wanted to work with nice people who weren’t pushy and sneaky. Tony you were very easy to work with while planning this wedding. We have received many compliments thanks to your professional service. We will definitely recommend your services to all of our friends and family. You’ll probably even hear from us in the future! Sincerely, John and Christina

    Dear Tony & the Shrewsbury Quartet, Thank you so much for providing such beautiful music at my August 31st wedding. You exceeded my expectations in every way! You were very accommodating throughout the months leading up to the wedding, including working with my vocalist to accompany her during the sung hymns and providing music suggestions that worked out marvelously. I received many positive comments from my guests regarding the quality of your music. You were especially the highlight of the wedding for my three year old flower girl, who couldn’t help but ask if you would play again throughout the ceremony. I’d be happy to provide a glowing recommendation for you to any future bride. Best, Liz HF
