Angelicus String Quartet is made up of four female musicians, but most importantly, friends. Our group consists of two violinists, a violist and a cellist. We have played many local venues individually, but truly enjoy performing together for weddings!

We play a variety of pieces, ranging from baroque and classical standards for a traditional ceremony, to Broadway and pop selections for a more upbeat cocktail hour or party! We will try to accommodate any request you might have (and we have gotten a lot of interesting requests!!) Performing at weddings and special occasions is so much more than just a job for us. We seek to make you feel at ease as we work together to personalize the music for your event. From your initial contact, to the private concert where you preview your playlist and finally…your big day (where we love to meet the key players in the ceremony), we hope you feel like a friend as we give you and your guests a very special performance!

All of the stars! Angelicus was incredible--they learned several (difficult!) songs for us so that we could customize the ceremony to exactly what we wanted. They let me listen in on a practice session so I could get an idea of how everything would sound, and even were willing to let me record them so that my fiance could hear them as well. Music is very important to us, and the care and professionalism showed by Angelicus is really unparalleled. I heartily recommend them to anyone looking for a talented quartet with a fantastic range of music.

These ladies are incredible!

We had them do very traditional wedding music at our Catholic wedding mass. It was gorgeous and not a beat was missed!

Remember that $$ does not equal quality - Angelicus is very reasonably priced and they are incredibly talented!

They were on time and started playing the second they got to the church.

Angelicus was wonderful! Maxine made us feel very comfortable and right at home when we met with her to plan our ceremony music. She had us over to her home and played samples for us, which was very lovely! She helped us put together the perfect set of music as we told her a few types of things we liked. She made it easy for us, and was so very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend them. Great value too!

The Angelicus String Quartet played during the ceremony and cocktail hour of my August 16th wedding at Belhurst Castle. I was soooo impressed by the high quality and great value of these ladies! After choosing the quartet, my mother, sister, and myself were personally invited to the home of Maxine, who was absolutely lovely. Not knowing much about classical music, she was full of fantastic suggestions and even played background to the song "I Will," which my sister personally sung during the ceremony. The week of the ceremony my sister had strep throat and was unsure if she would be able to perform. The night before the ceremony, she decided she did want to perform, and this was not a problem with the Angelicus String Quartet! Thanks so much for a great job! I would highly recommend this quartet!!!!!

I just wanted to thank you again for everything on Sunday. It couldn't have gone any better. Perfect weather, beautiful music, everyone had a great time. And it was very easy to work with you. I can't tell you how many people came up to us and complemented us on the quartet. It was just perfect. If any of our friends have upcoming weddings I'll make sure that your name comes up.

On behalf of Krista and I, Thank you so much for a truly perfect wedding!

We used a trio of musicians from Angelicus String Quartet for our ceremony music. Maxine was extremely helpful and responsive throughout our planning process even arranging versions of Seasons of Love and Never Gonna Give You Up for us. The music was beautiful and perfectly complemented our ceremony.

My husband and I couldn't have been happier with the Angelicus String Quartet! We had them play as a part of our wedding ceremony and our dinner hour at the reception. Their level of musical talent and professionalism is truly unmatched by any others. They were able to accommodate all of our requests and were willing to work alongside other musicians as well (vocalists, hand bell group, trumpeter, etc). Thank you for helping to make our day so beautiful!

I used Angelicus String Quartet for my recent wedding in Canandaigua, NY. I feel bad that I didn't get to meet all of the members of the quartet because they did a great job for the music for my ceremony and brunch. It was a great day and they even volunteered to come down and play on the lawn for the ceremony even though there was a chance of rain. Overall I was extremely satisfied with their performance the day of and would recommend them for future brides.

A few things, do confirm your appointments with Maxine, I had made an appointment with her that happened to fall through the cracks, and I kept emailing her trying to confirm the appointment we had set earlier. I finally called her and found out she had completely forgotten about it (and apparently wasn't getting or checking the emails I had been sending).

Do go to your meeting prepared, with a good idea of what music you want. I didn't do this step and it meant the meeting we had was not very productive. I knew the type of ceremony I was having (casual, outdoors, non-traditional) and a few of the songs I wanted played (Enya's Wild Child for my entrance) and I was hoping she would be able to help me pick out other music from their repertoire that would work for my wedding. However, her suggestions were all of the super-traditional wedding music you hear at every church wedding and I felt some resistance when I tried to probe for other non-traditional ideas. I even mentioned that it seemed strange to have all this super formal music in the beginning and then have Enya all of the sudden out of nowhere. In the end, she really wasn't helpful at selecting music. When I left the meeting I wasn't happy with how it went or the music that was picked, it just didn't work for my wedding at all. I went home that night, did the necessary research and sent her the songs I wanted played. She was flexible and had no problems switching and playing the songs I asked for and they turned out beautifully.

I live in Atlanta and got married in Canandaigua, NY so it was very important that the vendors I worked with for our wedding were extremely flexible and responsive. Maxine was exactly that.

My husband and I selected some very non-traditional music for the ceremony. At our music sampling meeting, Maxine was able to tell us which of our song selections would sound best in the ceremony and which songs were not as tuneful. She even played each song for us so that we could get a sense of whether or not we agreed. We really appreciated the feedback she gave us. She also was able to recommend a song for our mothers and grandparents to walk to. This saved us a great deal of time, since we did not have to go searching for another song.

When the wedding day came, the group arrived on time and played beautifully. It was a rather windy day and at one point one of the music stands blew over. Amazingly, the music didn't skip a beat. The musician just casually got up and shared music with another one of the members of the group.

I cannot recommend this quartet enough. They play beautiful music and are a pleasure to work with.

Angelicus String Quartet did an amazing job during our ceremony! We met with Maxine a few weeks before the wedding and she helped us pick out all of our music. She made suggestions for the different parts of our ceremony and played them for us on her violin. We went with a traditional approach, but also had some unique songs to make our ceremony extra special. The quartet sounded incredible on our special day. They were also very reasonably priced. So glad we chose them!

AMAZING! This quartet was so wonderful to work with- so professional and the music was perfect. My husband wrote the music for our processional and many quartets said that they wouldn't play something that wasn't in their repertoire already- Maxine was so sweet and even played us a little of it during our pre-wedding meeting. They are so perfect!

Would use this quartet again in a heartbeat. We met with Maxine a few weeks prior to the wedding, as I had some questions about the music. She was able to play every song I requested and made me feel as ease and comfortable with how the ceremony would proceed. We only wish we could've heard more of their music (instead we were out doing pictures for cocktail hour!)
