Ovation String Quartet won the Gigmasters' Best of 2017 Award!!
Welcome to the page for Ovation String Quartet and be sure to watch our video demo.
POPULAR SONGS RECENTLY ADDED - Happy, Titanium, Billie Jean, Thinking Out Loud, Everything, The Best Day of My Life, Purple Rain and Kiss by Prince - and these are in addition to our already huge list! Our arrangements are unique and very full sounding.
We are all trained musicians with degrees from prestigious schools (Northwestern University, Indiana University, U of Minnesota, DePaul University). Members of the quartet have played with orchestras like Rochester Symphony, Mankato Symphony, Wayzata Symphony, Exultate, and as backup musicians for nationally touring artists like Deep Purple and Amy Grant.
There are many great string quartets to consider for your wedding, party or event. So, what makes Ovation unique?
** Service! Our clients are important to us, and we provide personalized service at every step along the way.
** Huge repertoire list. We are very versatile and love to play different styles such as Classical, Popular, Classic Rock, and Jazz. (See our popular repertoire list on the “Music” page.)
** Special Requests. If you have a song in mind and it's not already on our list, we will create a special arrangement at no extra cost (up to 2 per event).
** Live Performances. We put ourselves out into the community and periodically play live at coffee shops and restaurants.
** Proven history of client satisfaction! Please google Ovation String Quartet and read our reviews.
Ovation typically plays 50-60 events per year (mostly weddings and private parties), and have played in venues all over the Twin Cities area. For smaller events, we also break down to a trio, duo, or solo instrument. Occasionally, one of us has a conflict but we have many subs who know our repertoire and are just as dedicated to the quartet.
We'd love to have you contact us for a quote for your event, or to ask any question you may have. We take pride in doing our best to make each event memorable!
What to Expect:
During the planning process, you will receive a music planning checklist. We are there to help out as needed with making music decisions and planning related to the music.
If you have special music requests, we need to know them 30 days in advance in order to create the arrangement. There are also quartet arrangements of many pop songs through various music sites, and you are welcome to provide the music if within less than 30 days.
We will arrive 20-30 minutes ahead of our playing start time.
Our set-up time is very quick and efficient, and we won't be a distraction to other things going on.
Our dress is typically black, unless something else is preferred.
We will have all music organized and assembled so that each party of the event progresses seamlessly.
