Jewish Wedding Music
We have a complete set of traditional Jewish wedding music for string quartet. The Woodwind Trio has proven to be especially popular for Jewish Weddings, and recently we have started a new collaboration with traditional and folk fiddle player Lisa and her husband Eric (string bass), who play either solo, as a duo, or in a small band for Scandinavian solo fiddle music, and traditional Jewish and klezmer styles for your wedding or event.
Cocktail Hour and Dinner Music

Generally, we will play a variety of music that fits with the theme of your wedding. Often, we'll start with Baroque music like Bach and Vivaldi, then work our way through the Classical Era, the Romantic Era, play some tangos end up with a selection of modern tunes and pop music. This gives a nice arc connecting the more formal ceremony and leading in to the less formal reception. Of course, we always consider what is the best thing for each wedding, and we love it when you have a specific musical vision, and will happily make that happen.

Non-Wedding Occasions

Of course we have plenty of music to fill any occasion with the appropriate ambience. This includes Christmas parties, which we've done quite a number of, especially with the string quartet and saxophone quartets.
