  • Ray's team was fantastic!! The musicians were top quality, they were able to accommodate the need for both a classical and modern repertoire - our guests loved it! They also had a small computer that allowed guests to pick songs (modern and classical) that they wanted to hear performed by the quartet - folks loved this. We had a small wedding (~55 guests) and his team was able to step in and pick up some light emcee duties (i.e. announcements, etc.) to help the reception flow smoothly w/o us having to ask one of our guests to step in. Definitely recommended for the future!

  • Ray was extremely accommodating, easy to work with, and played beautiful music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and wedding reception. We were picky with what we wanted and he did a good job incorporating many of likes and avoiding most of our dislikes. Highly recommend!

  • Huge thank you to Ray and his team! They did an incredible job playing at our wedding. With last minute changes because of the weather, Ray swiftly shuffled his group inside and picked up playing right where they left off. If you are looking for a string quartet in Philadelphia, look no further! THANK YOU RAY!

  • Elegance String Quartet provided an exceptional experience for our wedding guests at St.Thomas of Villanova. Together with their talented trumpet, oboe, and the choir, the guests at our daughter’s wedding ceremony were delighted with great music. Their version of Gabrial’s Oboe from The Mission was amazing. Ray personally arranged the version for the procession and collaborated closely with all of the talent .We look forward to working with Ray and Elegance for future family events. We highly recommend for your event .

  • The Elegance String Quarter is an amazing group of musicians. Their repertoire is vast, with each piece as different than the next. Our wedding experience was enhanced greatly; our guest had nothing but compliments on their performance! We are impressed by their professionalism and talent. Cheers! Julie Angelot

  • We used Elegance String Quartet for our wedding ceremony and could not have been happier! I was extremely indecisive when it came to choosing the songs we wanted to incorporate and Ray was beyond helpful! We got married in December in a beautiful ballroom and I wanted that dramatic bridal entrance... and thats exactly what we received! I highly recommend adding the Elegance String Quartet to your special day!

    Dear Deanna, Thank you so much for this glowing review and for mentioning me by name :) ! It was my pleasure to work on your program and find songs that fit your personality as well as the venue ambiance. Best regards, Ray.

  • I would highly recommend booking Elegance Quartet for your next event. I hired a string duo to play during my outdoor wedding ceremony and it was perfect. The live music added such a nice touch to our ceremony and the song selections were great. Ray, the music director, was extremely easy to work with and was able to coordinate one of my bridesmaids to sing along with the strings. All of my guests were raving about the music. Thank you so much!

    Thank you so much, Molly! It was a pleasure working with you and accompanying Jenna, as well!

  • Working with the Elegance team was easy and smooth. They are responsive and professional during the planning process, and have a huge library of music. Every song we were hoping for was on their list. We used a string trio and it added a subtle elegance and ambiance that really completed our ceremony. Highly recommend!

  • Hands down, Elegance String Quartet was one of the best parts of our wedding! From the moment we started planning our wedding, my husband and I knew that we wanted to have a traditional cocktail hour but with a modern twist – this quartet was just what we needed. Ray the music director was very professional and easy to work with and accommodated all of our song requests. The musicians played everything from Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder…to Cold Play and Mumford…to Drake, JT, and Beyonce. The music we selected paired perfectly with the quartet’s “beat box” which took the music to the next level and made everything upbeat and fun. Without the lyrics, it was just so entertaining to listen to the music and try to guess what song was being played. Ray even agreed to play a surprise song that meant something to my husband (“Beverly Hills Cop” theme song), which put a huge smile on his face. As for our guests, the “Game of Thrones” theme song may have even been among the... Read more

  • We hired Elegance String Quartet to play the welcoming and ceremony music at our wedding, and we couldn't be happier that we did. All of our communication with Ray was prompt, friendly, and professional, and he made it very easy for us to discuss our options and choose exactly what we were looking for. We had a Twin Peaks theme, a show with a pretty distinct and unique soundtrack, and we wanted this music played before the ceremony as guests were arriving. Ray was able to get the sheet music for us without any extra charge, which saved us a lot of time and effort since they aren't current or necessarily popular songs. Once he found the sheet music, he made sure to go over each selection with us to make sure we approved of each one (they're generally more somber songs and Ray wanted to make sure we were ok with that), which we appreciated. We chose more traditional songs for the entrance of the bridal parties and procession of the ceremony, and every song they played was beautiful. I ha... Read more

  • My fault for waiting so long to write a review, but everything was outstanding! We hired Elegance to play for our wedding ceremony and our cocktail hour. We chose mostly from their contemporary repertoire and added their "beat buddy" for cocktail hour to make it a little more fun. My only regret is that I didn't take time to stop and listen to them at cocktail hour, because all of our guests raved about them. Communication was great and well-organized as well. Would definitely recommend! Now I just have to find someone with videos of them playing from our cocktail hour so I can experience it :)

    Hi Lauren! This was such a nice surprise!! Thank you for writing this wonderful review, it's never too late :) You even remembered our buddy the BeatBuddy :) We had a lot of fun at the cocktails with that!

  • We were so pleased with Elegance String Quartet. My husband and I got married on September 16th, 2017 and are so happy we hired their string trio for our ceremony and cocktail hour. They were absolutely amazing and worth every penny. From beginning to end, Ray and Melanie were very professional, easy to work with, responsive and helpful. Ray suggested playlists dependent on the type of "mood" we wanted to set for our wedding but also gave us the option to pick and choose the songs that I would like played. They sounded great and cant tell you how many of our guests raved about them. They were everything I dreamt of and more! I cant stress how happy I was with them and I highly, highly, highly recommend them!!!!

    Stephanie, thank you so much for this glowing review! You and your guests made our job not only easy but also so fun and enjoyable with all the energy that was there :) We love playing for fun-loving people!

  • I hired Elegance String Quartet for my wedding this past August and they were amazing to work with. They brought a “wow” factor to my cocktail hour. Leading up to the wedding Ray was a delight and beyond helpful. The guests were obsessed with them, everyone kept talking about how cool it was that they would play songs like bruno mars in an elegant way! Their song selection is extensive and they sound WONDERFUL! They were so fun and my only regret was I didn’t have them for longer!! I 100% recommend them and would hire them for any event! You will not be disappointed at all!

  • Hiring Elegance String Quartet to play at our wedding was one of the best decisions we made during the entire process. The sound of the baroque renderings before the ceremony and during the recessional were so sensitive and beautiful....almost like a dream really! As a musician, I can say that working with their music director, Ray Bicolli, was a fantastic experience- he is so professional and kind. I had written a very special song for Carole (my wife) that I wished to perform, and asked if the quartet could back me up and help with the orchestration according to what the song needed. Ray was just a joy to work with, and the quartet made my little surprise so perfect! My deepest gratitude goes out to them---I cannot recommend them more strongly to anyone looking for an amazing group of musicians to make their wedding come alive. :) Steve Dolinski

    Thank you so much for this wonderful review, Stephen! Working on your special request was really a pleasure for me. You are a wonderful musician and song writer and we look forward to one day recording that song for you :) -Ray
