Award Winning String Ensembles

Strings are our specialty and we do more of this than anyone else. Our string ensembles have performed for over 1,000 Wedding Ceremonies, Receptions, Corporate and Special Events. Repertoire includes everything from Mozart, Vivaldi and “Canon In D” to Bruno Mars, Christina Perri and The Beatles. For the past 20 years, we have provided professional, personable musicians for every kind of gathering. Superior planning leads to superb performances. Planning sheets, videos and song lists make it as easy as possible. You only get one chance to do this right and we do everything we can to get it right every time.

Steven did our ceremony music for the wedding and it was amazing! We received a bunch of compliments and people were asking how we found him! I would definitely recommend! Thanks again, Steven!

A Wealth of Experience

We offer only professional performers – no students or amateurs – so you can be comfortable knowing you are in good hands. These musicians have worked together for many years and worked individually with Symphonies, Orchestras, Operas, Ballets, Broadway Shows, Ice Shows and notables from Tony Bennett and Luciano Pavarotti to the Transiberian Orchestra. They are by far the most experienced and busiest performing ensembles in the area.

We used a quintet and the music was stunning. They were easy to work with, very professional, looked great and sounded amazing. In addition to the service we used them during cocktail hour and it was a nice addition to the room. Highly recommend.

Full-Service Ceremony Performance Package

Our standard wedding ceremony performance includes :
  • Advanced consultation with the Group Leader/Performer to discuss music and go over other details.
  • 30 minutes of Prelude music as the guests arrive to set a nice tone to the event.
  • Music for the entrance of the Moms – if you choose to do this.
  • The Processional(s) – which can be split up with the wedding party coming down to one selection and you to a separate piece for a more dramatic entrance.
  • Selections during the service – such as during a Unity Candle Lighting or another special moment.
  • The Recessional – when the two of you march back up the aisle and off into the sunset.
  • One or two Postlude pieces as the guests leave to move on to the Reception.
  • You also have 24/7 access to our planning resources including the Ceremony Planning Sheet, song lists, and over 400 videos of the most popular wedding pieces.
Steven Vance and another violinist performed at my son’s wedding ceremony in Sept 2019. The music was excellent and added a special touch to the ceremony. Steven also assisted my son and his future wife in selecting songs for the ceremony. The music was beautiful and classic.

"I’d like to pass along my sincerest gratitude to DJ Mike Greca. He made our wedding experience so wonderful and was truly a delight. He was professional, on time and prepared, and a fabulous MC for our wedding! We appreciate everything and could not have asked for a better DJ."
Chris & Amanda Vos  9/26/20 Red Barn Inn Swanton MD DJ Mike G

"I’m on my way to my honeymoon, but I wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you. Tiffany and Lorenzo were both fantastic and made sure my wedding was wonderful. Tiffany’s music was stunning, and it was easy to work with her. But what I really wanted to let you know was how wonderful Renzo was! He went above and beyond for me the entire time I was working with him. He was very communicative and easy to talk to in advance. He came out to visit the venues with me so that he would be prepared, and was generous with his time and very patient. He made sure he had all the info he needed. He was professional, and fun to work with. And he was a great DJ! Set everything up very well, kept the guests entertained, on the dance floor, and kept my timeline going. He even gave a little salsa lesson to my guests because I told him it would mean a lot to me, and everyone had a blast! Anyway, I’m sure you know all of this (and I need to get to my honeymoon), but he was so wonderful throughout, I just wanted to let you know 🙂 I know he will do excellent work for many more of your brides in the future!"

"We just got back to New York yesterday and wanted to send a quick note to thank you again so very much for being a part of our bootleg backyard wedding on the 3rd. I'm so sorry that I didn't get a chance to say hi in-person - everything was such a whirlwind that day! This year has been a rocky one to say the least with everything going on in the world, but it was all so completely worth it to still be able to get married on our original date. You were a huge part of that, and we are forever grateful. Hope you have a great rest of the weekend, and we'll see the trio in December for the big wedding :)"
Caitlin & Matt 7/3/20 Private Residence in Somerset Solo Violinist Steven Vance

"Steve was a must-have for our wedding as he did my sister's 8 years ago (and we loved him) and should be a must-have for your event! Not only does he do an amazing job MC'ing and DJ'ing, and running the event, but the live violin - WOW! The violin adds elegance to your event that guests will continue to talk about for years to come.  Steve also is an expert in the field, leaving no worries for the bride-to-be in the event. I knew our reception would run perfectly with him in charge and it did. Highly recommend!!"     Paige & Russ 3/14/20  Soldiers & Sailors Hall
