For 20+ years, The Woodvale String Quartet has been instrumental in helping hundreds of clients achieve the event of their dreams. Our 4 members are full-time, seasoned professional musicians with extensive training from music schools and conservatories in the U.S., and collectively have performed in Canada, Europe, and the Middle East, as well. We each bring a variety of personal musical experience to the quartet, including Broadway show, jazz, rock, and the traditional classical and baroque styles.
Having performed together as an ensemble for years, we have developed a rich, beautiful, refined sound and style. In addition, our extensive repertoire consists of well over 300 pieces of music, spanning a period of approximately 400 years, ranging from baroque to pop and contemporary shows. Each musical number in our repertoire has been carefully chosen as one that will enhance the ambiance of your event. From those, we are able to select just the right music to create the perfect atmosphere as the party unfolds throughout the evening. Elegant, uplifting music is ever present but never overpowers the conversations of your guests.
We are dedicated to guiding our clients through the vast and sometimes overwhelming world of chamber music. When you contact us, either via phone or email, daytime or evening, 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. Our demo CD contains 57 short recordings of The Woodvale String Quartet performing recommended Christian, Jewish and non-religious wedding ceremony music, as well as various samples for receptions and holiday parties. Also experienced arrangers, we will honor requests and arrange virtually any piece of music for you if it is not available in print for string quartet. (Our arrangements are often requested by many other string quartets throughout the country!)
We are very flexible and willing to work with your guest vocalist, church organist, or music director to provide the best music for your special day. We have compiled many arrangements for string quartet and voice, and are always happy to add to the list. We will communicate directly with the musical participants to work out the fine details, allowing you to spend your valuable time with other important details of your event.
A few sample client responses: "We had the wedding of our dreams and are so thankful that you were a part of it. Thank you so much for your unbelievable talent, professionalism, and courtesy in working with us.";
"Our wedding day was the happiest and most pleasant day of our lives and you and your colleagues played a great role in making the day a perfect one for both of us."
"Thank you for the most joyous music I have ever heard at a wedding. My daughter and new son could not have had a more beautiful ceremony."
