Both a leader and pioneer in wedding ceremony string quartet music performance for over 25 years, The Woodvale String Quartet continues to provide our clients with the perfect accompaniment to their most special event. We credit our longevity to our constant pursuit of excellence in both performance and client satisfaction. Our passion for performing weddings stems from the fact that they are among the most important and spiritually uplifting events for any couple, and we love playing a part in them.

Composed with the knowledge gained from our own years of experience, the FAQ page of the Woodvale String Quartet website has been used as the industry standard for years and appears on a multitude of string quartet websites throughout the USA. Our Ceremony music page has long been the go-to wedding music source for couples and their string quartets in this country and Europe. Our special music arrangements have been requested from California to the U.K.

By now you may have begun researching the far corners of the web to find that perfect music for your dream wedding or reception. Or you may not even know where to begin. Either way, we will be right there with you to guide you through the beautiful world of string quartet music from Classical to Coldplay, beginning with the many examples on this website.

When it comes to planning, it is important to us that your every detail and request be handled thoroughly, from dedicating the time necessary to help you create your dream wedding music program, to writing musical arrangements of creative requests. We will also coordinate with party planners, function managers and officiants to assure that the music runs smoothly throughout your event. We will be happy to incorporate other professional musicians as well as your friends or family members who wish to perform during the wedding ceremony, including singers, organists, pianists, trumpet players, etc., and coordinate the music with them directly to free you to concentrate on other details.

  • When you contact us, either via phone or email, you connect directly with a knowledgeable Woodvale String Quartet member, not a go-between or separate manager. This avoids any miscommunication, and allows your most critical musical questions to be answered immediately. It also means that you can usually catch us days or evenings. You won't have to call us from work, but from the convenience of your home, where you are not rushed. We are not contractors, sending out multiple string quartets and trios. There is only one quartet here.
