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
We now have musicians based in Rehoboth/Lewes, De.
What to Expect
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.
We would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for your wonderful music on our wedding. Everything was perfect- just as we had imagined. A big part of this is due to the quality and tone of the music played. It set such an emotional tone for our wedding, which many guests said was one of the best they had attended. Thank you so much. My walk down the aisle was everything I dreamed of accompanied by the Canon in D. You helped make our day truly memorable and different.
Thank you for an amazing performance at our wedding ceremony on June 4, 2006 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!
We wanted to thank you so very much for the absolutely beautiful music that you played for our wedding. As you know, planning a wedding can be very stressful, but working with you was an extreme pleasure. You knew exactly what I wanted, you helped calm me and I knew that our music was going to be absolutely amazing, and it was. It was absolutely perfect. We can't put into words how much we appreciated your beautiful music and how much you added to our wedding. I always dreamed of having a string quartet at my wedding. Not only did you make a dream come true, you exceeded it.
Our sincerest thanks
I wanted to thank you for playing such beautiful music on our wedding day. I was so nervous and wasn't quite sure what to expect, but when I heard you playing when I came into the Church, you brought tears to my eyes. Everything was perfect. Your kindness when helping me choose songs was greatly appreciated. I could not have asked for a more perfect ceremony.
Thank you so much again,
