The Elegance String Quartet was absolutely amazing! The prelude music they played really set the tone for the whole night. Just beautiful! The classical music for our ceremony was perfect followed by fun pop cover songs for our cocktail hour. Everyone fell in love with them! I can't say enough good things about Ray. He was SO easy to work with. A week before our wedding, I found a piece I wanted to use for my bridal entrance and it was nowhere to be found. Within a day, Ray had tracked down the piece in Italy, had it shipped overnight and then had to learn it. Not once did he complain. Needless to say, the ESQ is extremely professional, so talented and definitely worth booking!!!

I give Elegance String Quartet my highest recommendation! As I live in Ohio, I had to do much research on-line to find a quartet in the Philadelphia area for the ceremony and cocktail music for my son's wedding. On ESQ's website, I was easily able to hear their exquisite performances from a representative sampling of their extensive repertoire. Being a classically trained musician myself, it was clear that they had the professional and polished sound I was looking for!

Ray was always accessible and accommodating and answered all of my questions and concerns. He was so eager to please and even assisted me in finding the religious ceremony music I was looking for. When last minute changes to the processional order needed to be made (after the dress rehearsal the night before the wedding), Ray worked with me to make sure I would be happy with the changes. These were executed perfectly at the wedding the next day!

Aside from their obvious talent and training, I was also impressed with ESQ's customer service and organization. They were prompt, did everything promised and exceeded all of my very high expectations. My guests are still telling me how much they enjoyed listening to the music of ESQ. They made such an "ELEGANT" addition to our event!

Had a wonderful experience working with a string duo from Elegance String Quartet for our April wedding in Philly. We wanted all modern pop songs for the seating of the guests and the ceremony. They had an awesome selection! They were super flexible, hosting 2 separate skype calls with us so we could here all the music we selected. And they made adjustments to tempo at our request. It was a breeze to work with them and our guests raved about the performance! Don't hesitate to book Elegance String Quartet! They did a fabulous job! :)

Here was our song list to give you an idea of the modern pop they can play!
Jimmy Eat World: The Middle
Brandon Flowers/The Killers: When You Were Young
Fall Out Boy: Sugar We're Going Down
The Postal Service: Such Great Heights
Rihanna: Stay
Bruno Mars: Marry You
Beyonce- Halo
Jose Gonzales/The Knife: Heartbeats
Bruno Mars: Just The Way You Are
Arlen: Over the Rainbow
Bridesmaids Processional: The Temper Trap: Sweet Disposition
Bride Processional: Death Cab for Cutie: I will Follow You Into The Dark

I cannot imagine our ceremony without the string trio from Elegance String Quartet! They really added a wonderful element of class and romance to our wedding and I received so many compliments on the musicians. ESQ has a very large song library including everything from classical to pop! Ray was very responsive and he made planning the music program completely stress free for us. I would choose to work with ESQ again in a second and would recommend them to anyone planning an event and looking for talented musicians!

ESQ was, in one word, phenomenal! We booked a string trio for our ceremony and cocktail hour and everyone raved about the trio. The hall even asked for their contact info to add them to their preferred vendors list! You know everyone was enjoying the music when they were dancing during cocktail hour to their modern music so eloquently played by the trio. Ray Bishel was very attentive and easy to talk to. He listened to our ideas and concerns and offered such great advice that executed a fabulous event!

Elegance String Quartet was great to work with! They were extremely responsive during the booking process and in the weeks leading up to our wedding, took the time to understand the type of music we were interested in. They played during our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and all of our guests were blown away by how amazing they were and could not stop talking about the quartet! I highly recommend them!

Elegance String Quartet did an amazing job performing for our wedding ceremony. We had a more non traditional ceremony, and ESQ had the perfect list of non traditional songs to perform. Additionally, our ceremony was in a bit of a difficult location to get to, and they were more than willing to accommodate us. I definitely recommend working with them.
