Voted BEST Wedding Ceremony Music by Boston A-List in 2012, 2011, and 2010! Since its formation 2004, the Boston String Quartet has been a creative leader in contemporary classical music in New England. Having made their professional debut at Weil Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall, the quartet performs their own arrangements of classical chamber music, rock, jazz, world music and more, and is continually "exploring different ways of sparking musical interest" [Boston Globe]. This journey has allowed for collaboration with John Mayer, the Boston Ballet, Fionnuala Gill, Giorgia Fumanti, Jennifer Holliday, Lisa Fisher, Tim Janis, Dave Fiucznyski, as well as opportunity to perform at such venues as the Los Angeles Music Awards, PBS, Yankee Homecoming Festival, and for former president George H.W. Bush. Committed to music education in New England, the members of the Boston String Quartet are currently Ensemble-in-Residence at contemporary music school, School of Groove. To date, the Boston String Quartet has released four albums, including "Xibus" [a genre-stretching tour-de-force from one of the finest young touring string quartets in the United States – PARMA], a new release from Navona Recordings. The Boston String Quartet can be heard over the radio or may be found performing on local television stations, as well as nationally on PBS. Recordings may be purchased world-wide from Naxos.
The Boston String Quartet has been performing together for over four years and has played at over 100 weddings and other special events.
