Why hire Shrewsbury String Quartet?
The Shrewsbury String Quartet is composed of professional musicians who for many years have applied beautiful music for various weddings, dinner parties and other elegant services. The 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. Please let us know if you would like us to mail you a free demo CD and also let us know if you would like to hear us play live.
There is very little difference in the sound of most of the professional string quartets that play weddings in the
Philadelphia, South Jersey, Wilmington area. What sets the Shrewsbury String Quartet apart from the others is how easy it is to work with us. 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. We are very comfortable with or without an organist. We will start playing prelude music about a half hour before the wedding starts. We will play something special for the mothers and grandmothers to be seated, and processional music for the bridesmaids and bride to walk down the aisle. We can also play special music during the ceremony, for a unity candle, communion, meditation, etc. We will then play for the bride and groom to recess from the altar, and postlude music as your guests are leaving. This would cost $675.00 for a quartet, $550.00 for a trio or $425.00 for a duo. If you hire us for a ceremony and cocktail hour, the combined fee would be $1175.00 for a quartet, $925.00 for a trio or $675.00 for a duo. 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. Let us know if you would like us to mail you a free demo CD or if you would like to hear us play live. We will work very closely with you helping you choose music that is perfect for you.
