  • Boston String Ensemble was amazing for our ceremony! Chen was super easy to communicate with, they had a giant list of songs to choose from, and they really elevated the ceremony as a whole. I'd definitely recommend them to a friend!

  • The BSE performed at our wedding for 2 hours and we could have not been more happy with their performance! They were incredibly professional, easy to work with, and were able to meet all of the various requests we had. Would highly recommend booking!

  • We hired Boston String Ensemble for our June wedding ceremony and they were just fantastic! Chen is so nice and easy to work with. He is so quick to respond to emails and answered any questions I had promptly. We hired them for a prelude session while guests were arriving and to play during the ceremony. Our guests were raving about the prelude session and said it added such a nice, classic touch to the overall day. The string trio was on time, went over cues with our coordinator and were just overall so pleasant to work with. I couldn’t have asked for better musicians for our wedding.

  • I would highly recommend Boston String Ensemble to anyone! I booked them to perform for my ceremony and I am very glad I did. They played music for the prelude + 4 songs for our ceremony which is quite a lot when you consider the length of a processional and recessional. They also learned a new selection for my entrance which is typically performed with an entire orchestra. It sounded AMAZING! They were easy to coordinate with and in my opinion very reasonably priced (not easy to come by with a wedding)!

  • The Boston String Ensemble played for both our wedding ceremony and reception - it was very easy to work with Chen, who replied to emails quickly and offered helpful suggestions for music selections. They were excellent; arrived early to the venue and were very easy to work with; they are an extremely talented group of musicians and we had many guests commenting on how much they liked the quartet both during and after the wedding. I highly recommend them for any event and we were thrilled with having them at our wedding - thank you!

  • Chen and the Boston String Ensemble were absolutely wonderful! My husband is a musician and wanted to make sure that we had great music at our wedding ceremony. The Boston String Ensemble delivered great music before, during, and after our ceremony and our guests are still talking about the great music and great experience. We highly recommend them!!!!

  • Cannot recommend them enough. BEAUTIFUL music, amazing set-list to choose from, on-time, responsive, well-priced, professional and really good with kids who wanted to take a look at the instruments before the ceremony :-). LOVED them. So glad we went with them (I had gotten quotes from 10+ different quartets and Boston String Ensemble had the best reviews and best pricing). Look no further, you won't regret it!

  • I booked Boston String Quartet as a trio for music at our ceremony and couldn't be happier. From the moment I contacted BSQ, Chen, one of the incredibly talented musicians, always answered my questions/emails/requests within minutes and took so much time and care to ensure BSQ provided exactly what we were looking for. Their repertoire is EXTENSIVE and has a substantial amount of contemporary music that gave our wedding the unique touch I was looking for. Walking down the aisle was truly the best moment of my life and that is hugely in part to BSQ! We also had a little snafu with our wedding day transportation, and BSQ kindly extended their planned prelude as we were running a bit late. Thank you to all at BSQ for making our day so memorable!

  • We were very happy to book Boston String Quartet for our August wedding. Chris was able to answer our questions and was very easy to communicate with before our wedding day. We provided them with a list of our preference of songs, with some special requests which they accommodated without any issue. On the day of the wedding, the quartet arrived ahead of time,dressed appropriately for the formal occasion, and most importantly, sounded beautiful. I forgot to assign someone to cue them when the ceremony finished, but one of the musicians looked out for me and when I gave him a nod they quickly played our recessional. I was pleasantly surprised by the extent of their repertoire – they added more songs in than I expected and did a fantastic job. Thank you for helping to create the atmosphere that we were aiming for!

  • The Boston String Quartet played the ceremony music for my daughter's wedding on May 31, 2014 in Sturbridge, MA, They arrived early, as promised, and played the selected music prior to, and during the wedding ceremony. Many of the guests commented on how much they enjoyed them. Prior to the wedding, I met with the coordinator to confirm the arrangements. The quartet was seated in the gazebo with the ceremony taking place just in front of it. I was quite happy with the quality of the music and the professionalism of the quartet members. I did price a few other quartets, decided to go with Boston String, and was glad that I did so.

  • BSQ was great! We had a trio for our ceremony, and they sounded fabulous. We asked them to learn a number of songs off their repertoire for our wedding, and they sounded great. It meant so much to us that they were able to play them. They were songs that needed to be translated a little for strings (Sigur Ros, Midnight City, a Cat Stevens song), so I really appreciated that they were willing to do that, and each sounded great. Thanks!
