String Quartet and String Trio Song List

String Quartet Playlist of Epic and Unforgettable Wedding Songs

Wedding songs performed by a live string quartet can be an absolutely epic part of your celebration.  If the songs are not meaningful to you however, it may become rather forgettable. That’s why we specialize in writing arrangements of pop, rock, folk, jazz, country R&B and more to add to the traditional classical wedding music that many people think of when hiring a string quartet.  You might be familiar with this style of music thanks to musical groups like The Piano Guys and the Vitamin String Quartet.  The music transforms from your favorite band into a customized, beautiful piece of music suitable for weddings and events.

We have more than 250 custom arrangements (meaning we are the only ensemble who have them) to choose from for string quartet (and an additional 250+ in our acoustic repertoire) as well as all of the traditional classical wedding music and can recommend good options for those important moments in your wedding celebration.

Two FREE Custom Arrangements with Every Reservation

Here’s where Effesenden Music really stands out from other string quartet options:  we include 2 custom arrangements of your choosing in addition to songs from our current song list.  No. Extra. Cost.  We really mean it when we say we want the music at your wedding to be truly meaningful to you.

What if Two Free Arrangements is Not Enough?

Many of our clients choose to add more custom arrangements because they are so excited to have their own unique musical playlist.  We keep our arranging fee low at just $40 per song** (half of what most ensembles charge) so that it’s easy to add as many custom arrangements as you want.  That’s just 10 lattes for your own customized string quartet arrangement!

**Almost all songs.

Our string quartet arrangements transform your favorite band’s song into a customized, beautiful piece of music suitable for weddings and events.
