Where do I even start to sing enough praise to this group??!? Having a string quartet at my wedding was one of my biggest wishes, and this group exceeded what I always dreamed of. They first off were just amazing performers and they have great song selection. They also are extremely professional and quick to respond. But what really made them amazing was that they played outside in 45 degree cloudy weather, which is not ideal for their instruments. I also always wanted my ceremony outside and since they were sweet enough to play outside it became a reality. Would recommend to everyone!!!
"Set the tone" for an elegant and vibrant wedding ceremony!! Our guests were more than impressed by the musicianship and ease of transition between pieces. Excellent communication and promptness for our meeting, rehearsal and wedding ceremony ! Five star rating!!!
Hanna and the team were fantastic to work with from start to finish. From prompt email responses to helping me work through our vision for the wedding ceremony, everything was amazing. They even composed two custom songs for us that turned out beautifully!
Quartet 515 did a phenomenal job entertaining our guests at a recent event. They are thoroughly professional and are the perfect compliment to any event. Hanna met with me in advance to make sure she had all of the details down and checked out the space to ensure their instruments would be heard by the guests. The contract process was easy and seamless and Hanna was always responsive to emailed questions. I would highly recommend Quartet 515 for any special event!!
Excellent communication. Made our wedding ceremony elegant and fun. People were very impressed and asked how I found them. Was a surprise for the bride, and she was in tears with how great they sounded and made our ceremony so memorable.
Quartet 515 went above and beyond to make my wedding ceremony everything I had dreamed of. They were always quick to respond and very accommodating. I made several specific requests and they were happy to fulfill them with a little extra cost. Quartet 515 was great to work with, not to mention their playing was spectacular!
A remarkable performance by an incredibly talented group. Our guests are still raving about it. Thank you, Quartet 515, for making our special day even more unforgettable.
Quartet 515 did an awesome job at our wedding this past December! We loved the idea of having string music playing modern songs, and that is exactly what they did. Hannah and her team were very responsive and stayed in touch to make sure they got all the details correct. They were very professional and impressive. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
Joyce and Hanna sounded absolutely beautiful at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour! Hannah was always quick to respond, accommodating and very professional!
So easy to work with and just beyond amazing! A string quartet was on my wedding wish list and I'm so happy we found Quartet 515! For the ceremony, we chose one song off of their repertoire list and two that weren't. For the cocktail hour, they did a modern choice of songs. It all sounded SO good! Highly recommend!
They did a great job. They were very flexible with the time and being able to play when we needed them. I would recommend them for your next formal event. The group was great and played what they thought would fit the event.
We hired Quartet 515 for our wedding at Glen Oaks Country Club to play for the ceremony and for the cocktail hour. They were very accommodating and responsive in communications and music selections leading up to the wedding, and they played simply beautifully on our wedding day. I am just thrilled with how everything worked out! Thank you!!
Before I even had my wedding dress, my mom hired Quartet 515 for my wedding. Hanna was amazing to work with and answered all emails very quickly. I was able to pay a little extra for the quartet to play a song that was not previously in their playlist and it sounded amazing! They also played during our cocktail hour and although we weren't present for that part of the evening, our guests couldn't stop talking about how great the music was! Do not hesitate to hire Quartet 515!
Quartet was so easy and wonderful to work with! Hanna promptly responded to emails, and offered great advice on music choices for the ceremony. My mom and I were so excited to hear the quartet in person, but we had no idea that we would both start crying when they started to warmup! It is truly a beautiful sound, and I couldn't have imagined my ceremony or cocktail hour without them playing. If you are thinking about hiring this group for your special day or event, do not hesitate! They are professional, friendly, and incredibly talented.
The guests all loved the live music. They were prompt and very professional and required minimal work on my part. I was very pleased with their performance and professionalism.
Quartet515 was absolutely breathtaking at my wedding last August. Hanna was willing to meet with me in person to review the wedding timeline and learn the custom songs I requested. The group has such a fun, upbeat atmosphere to them. They helped make wedding planning easy and comfortable, there was never a doubt they could deliver! Wonderful group and experience!
