Over several decades, the musicians that make up the La Mer String Quartet have been performing with various orchestras for audiences across the United States. Each one is a seasoned and widely experienced musician. We enjoy making music, and we are very happy to be able to provide the music for your special occasions.

Music is such an individual preference, we encourage anyone seeking a live performance group to do some research and see what your choices are.

We're confident that you will find our performances and fees very much to your liking. Especially if you want a group that's broadly experienced in satisfying audiences and customers with professionalism in all stages of the job --- research, planning, and the actual performance of the music.

My wife and I looked at a ton of websites and possible musical options for our wedding ceremony. We had an absolute fantastic experience with the LaMer string quartet! I would highly recommend them to anyone. We even asked them to help us find some modern music to play and they introduced us to someone that could write any song and they could learn and play it for us...which they did and it was amazing! We received so many compliments from our guests. LaMer was responsive and very accommodating! If you are looking for a string quartet...look no further! Thank you again to LaMer and gig masters for everything! Mike & Lindsey
