What to Expect
The Rhapsody String Quartet 2017 Rates
Wedding Ceremony: $800 / Ceremony
We will work with you to pick meaningful music for each part of your ceremony. This includes 15 minutes of prelude music, family seating and bridal party processional music, bride's entrance, music during the ceremony, recessional music, and 15 minutes of postlude music. Attendance at the wedding rehearsal is an extra fee, but is not needed. We have played at many weddings and will gather information about the size of your bridal party and other details of the service to perfect timing.
Cocktail Hour or Parties: $800 / Hour
You let us know what you would like for the musical mood (classical, pop songs, love songs, et cetera) and any special requests and we will play for an hour from our repertoire books. If we are playing for multiple hours, we will take a short break each hour. A discount might apply if a cocktail hour is booked in conjunction with a wedding or party.
Travel/Mileage: $ Variable
We regularly travel within the tri-state area of Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. A mileage charge might be added for travel to venues outside of a 20-mile radius of Decorah, Iowa. We use the current mileage rate for musician travel multiplied by the miles and number of trips. Please contact us and we will calculate what the mileage charge will be.
Special Requests : $ Variable
We love to expand our repertoire! We have a lot of music in our repertoire and can find a lot of string quartet arrangements online, but sometimes a special request necessitates that we purchase sheet music, do a custom arrangement, or need significant more rehearsal time. If need be, we can coordinate with other musicians such as pianists or vocalists and rehearse before the ceremony. If you have a song or collaboration in mind for your special day, please let us know and we will look into it and let you know if there is an additional fee.
