$500 - $600
Vintage Strings is a locally based string ensemble performing for weddings and events in San Diego for over ten years. On the preferred vendor list at many of the top venues in San Diego, we bring years of classical training to each event we play. Our repertoire covers all the beloved classical standards like the Pachelbel Canon, Bach Jesu, Wagner Bridal Chorus and Mendelssohn Wedding March. Modern standards like Bittersweet Symphony, Viva La Vida are becoming increasingly popular with our clients. Custom arrangements are available for a small fee. We can work with singers or other instrumentalists if desired.
Ensembles offered are: a string quartet - 2 violins, viola and cello; string trio- 2 violins and cello; a violin duo and a cello duo. The quartet offers the widest range of musical choices, the trio is mostly classical with some pop tune selections, and the duo groups are strictly classically based.
Each of our musicians is highly trained, when not performing for events with Vintage Strings they teach privately; perform with local ballet, musical theater, and even the San Diego Symphony.
Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. The warm sound of string music can add that special touch of elegance to any venue. Bringing joy to our clients is of the utmost importance to us. We are known for being professional yet friendly. Choosing the songs for your wedding can be a daunting task; we can offer suggestions and have samples of some of our repertoire on our website. Our goal is to help you choose music that suits your style and sets the mood you wish to create at your event.
We show up 45 minutes before the official start time of the wedding to set up, tune and get any last minute details. At about 20 minutes before we start our prelude set - the music for the seating of the guests. When cued we start the various processionals for the service itself, If needed we can provide incidental music within the ceremony – for a unity ceremony, communion or something of that sort. After you are announced, we play a recessional of your choice, and then finish off with another piece or two of music as your guests leave. If we are to play for the cocktail hour, we switch to a more light-hearted set of music. We require armless chairs, as well as protection from the sun and wind. We do not require amplification of any kind. This allows us to play at parks and other outdoor venues easily.
The same core group of musicians play all our events, we do not double book or have multiple ensembles all called 'Vintage Strings.' This alone sets us apart from many groups. This also gives our clients an unrivaled level of commitment from us. On your special day YOU are what is most important to us.
Very accommodating to our desires, excellent music, worked well with the Bride. My daughter-Bride says 'ten stars'!
