The New York String Ensemble provides the perfect musical touch for any occasion!

Our musicians are the highest quality professionals in New York and we will work with you to accommodate all of your wishes to create the perfect live music.

We offer ensembles ranging from a solo string instrument, to duo, trio, or string quartet. Winds may also be added.

Our repertoire is vast and is comprised of classical, popular, religious, jazz, international, Broadway and folk styles.

We take song requests and will happily find music or arrange a few tunes for you. Past requests have included The Beatles, Coldplay, U2, and Jason Mraz quartet arrangements made popular by "The Vitamin String Quartet."

Our musicians frequently perform at Carnegie Hall and on PBS stations throughout the US and have worked all over the country with such internationally renowned artists as Tim Janis, Kanye West, Marco Antonio Solis, and the Three Mo Tenors.

Orchestra experience includes the Hartford Symphony, Springfield Symphony, Orlando Philharmonic, and Tallahassee Symphony.

Our leader, Amy, is also a jazz musician and performs with the band Iron City in some of New York's most prestigious jazz clubs.

I was so impressed by Amy Bateman and the musicians she works with. I really challenged them by giving them original works to play that were not in their repetoire and they rose to the occassion, playing the difficult pieces flawlessly. One of the benefits of being in New York City is having access to musicians of this caliber for your wedding. You should feel honored and lucky if you are able to book them.

I would definitely recommend The New York String Ensemble to anyone. Charlie Apicella, the head of the Ensemble, is very up-front, professional, and easy to worth with. Their rates are reasonable and their contract is straightforward. They are also flexible. Most importantly, their performance was phenomenal. They hit every cue and knew exactly when and how to cut off for different elements of the ceremony (in addition to processional and recessional music, we had short interludes for candle lighting during the ceremony which required the trio to find an appropriate time and manner to cease playing before the ceremony to continue.)

Amy did an incredible job at our wedding. She was incredibly professional and she performed beautifully. She played for our wedding ceremony. The wedding march song was a surprise for my new husband: "Is This Love" by Bob Marley. Amy and her husband did an incredible job adapting the song for violin and it came out beautifully (I get a little teary hearing it on our wedding video). She performed exactly as requested, was prompt and exceeded all my expectations. Thank you for helping to make our day special.
