Hello! We're the Pierce Quartet. Although we're new to gigmasters we collectively have thirty years experience playing weddings and special events.

First Violinist Chia-Yin Ma has a master's degree in Violin Performance from the Peabody Conservatory . She has been performing with the Peabody Improvisation and Multimedia Ensemble since 2005. Her great love is jazz and new music--she arranged and recorded the strings sections for Kathy Watson's album entitled “Come to Me,” the jazz pianist Joel Holmes' album entitled “African Skies,” and also the saxophonist Russell Kirk for his first debut Album entitled “Black & White”.

Second Violinist Margot Bennett, a born and raised Jersey girl, grew up singing classical music with her church choir. While studying violin she acquired a deep love for the chromatic harmonies of composers ranging from Mozart to Rutter, with a particular interest in Requiems. Her work as a singer songwriter has been profoundly influenced by dark poetic singer songwriters such as Leonard Cohen and Laura Nyro.

Violist Kate Barmotina has a degree in Music Education from NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. She is a passionate devotee of new and experimental music as well as a longtime fan of Beethoven.

Cellist Lenna Pierce studied chamber music under the world famous Chiara Quartet, and was runner up in their 2008 "Play with the Chiaras" competition. Her second album as a singing cellist was named WFMU's new album of the week in 2015. She loves playing weddings; helping brides and grooms to realize their personal vision for their special day.

I booked Pierce Quartet to play our wedding ceremony and it was absolutely beautiful! Lenna was so nice and really knew what questions to ask to make our ceremony more meaningful. I also asked the quartet to play a song that was not in their repertoire for my entrance, and they absolutely nailed it! Lenna was very helpful in helping pick music for the rest of the ceremony as well. She made everything very low stress. I would definitely recommend Pierce Quartet for any event!!!

Pierce Quartet provided a beautiful, professional, and personalized musical backdrop to our wedding ceremony. They offered a diverse repertoire and were happy to accommodate our request for a song not on their list, and Lenna was a joy to coordinate with. The group was flexible, friendly, and talented, and our guests loved the music. I couldn't have asked for a more seamless or pleasant experience with a musical group for our wedding. I highly recommend Pierce Quartet and hope to be able to book them again!
