Formed in 2006, the Organic String Quartet is a professional music group that caters to live events in the Southern California area. OSQ is well known for the diversity of the music they perform (Classical, Jazz, Rock, Pop and World) and each of the players is well grounded in multiple styles of music. Members of the quartet hold degrees from San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Berklee College of Music, Cal State Northridge, UCLA, and Boston Conservatory, and have worked with many high-profile artists such as Stevie Wonder, Macy Gray, Barbara Streisand, and more. The quartet was the featured music group on KCAL 9's 2011 special-edition wedding episode and recently appeared on the season finale of BRAVO's Millionaire Matchmaker that aired in November 2011. As part of their community outreach initiative, OSQ actively works with the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health performing and leading clinics, and in Spring 2011, the quartet had the privilege of performing with Nathaniel Ayers, the man who inspired the movie, "The Soloist". Founded by Alicia Spillias and Emily Moore, the Organic String Quartet is a green business that seeks low-impact and eco-friendly alternatives in every business choice and donates a portion of its yearly proceeds to American Forests to help plant new trees around the world.

They were a pleasure to work with and were very responsive to ALL of my emails! I really appreciated that they were willing to learn a new piece for our wedding, and it sounded amazing! Our guests made a point to tell us how beautiful the music was during our wedding ceremony. Thanks so much!

We loved having Organic String Quartet perform at our ceremony! They were so flexible with our song selections and even played pieces of our choosing that weren't in their repertoire! The day of the wedding was extremely windy and my wedding planner said they continued to play through gusts of wind and sand! We are SO appreciative of them persevering the conditions because the moment that I walked down the aisle, everything got so still and perfect. The music set the mood perfectly and the song that I selected really made the moment special for my new husband and I... it was the theme song to our favorite movie, Legends of the Fall! Alicia at Organic String Quartet was very professional and prompt in her responses to my questions and flexible with our unique venue and conditions. I highly recommend them for your wedding!

The Quartet played for my daughters wedding held outside. It was wonderful to have live music for the service, really helped everything to flow well. Guests came up to me during the cocktail hour to tell me how impressive the music was and how nice it was to have them for the cocktail hour, as well. Really made it classy and yet the music was a nice mix.

Organic String Quartet did a fantastic job at our wedding. They were recommended to us by our wedding coordinator and from our initial correspondence, OSQ was extremely accommodating and professional. Offering a variety of selections, we were able to pick both modern and classical pieces to be played during our ceremony and cocktail hour. OSQ played beautifully and their music added such a special element to our big day!

The best decision ever! My husband and I were going back and forth on hiring a string quartet, but I finally won that battle (happy wife... happy life!). We hired Organic String Quartet for our wedding and it was just beautiful. Till this day, our guests rave about how romantic and very classy the quartet made the entire day feel. They were so professional, answered all of our questions prior to the day of, worked well with our coordinator (she was the one who recommended them to us), dressed very professional and were open to any special requests.

The Organic string quartet was the very best part of my wedding, from beginning to end. The musicians were simply lovely! Well dressed, good looking, and surprisingly cool arrangements of their song list. They will even create an arrangement of your favorite song(s). My friends all mentioned how great they were and how elegant my very small wedding was - definitely due largely to them.
Read Miss Manners book on weddings, don't waist your money on unnecessary gifts and centerpieces, and then spend it on this group!
This is the one vendor you needn't have a single worry about. If anything, they will rise above your expectations.

OSQ was such a great addition to the wedding!!! Everyone complimented on having the quartet over a DJ. My now husband was the one who wanted a quartet at the wedding, and I'm so glad I didn't fight him for a DJ! Alicia was wonderful to work with, they only had a few requests which were fine, but other than that, they did a wonderful job. They played for 5 hours!!! They played classical songs to pop songs and also took special requests for the different parts of the reception (entrance, father-daughter dance, first dance, etc.). I would highly recommend checking them out on youtube or elsewhere. I highly recommend a string quartet for your wedding too :).

Organic String Quartet played my wedding ceremony on the beach. Thankfully, I was able to have my videographer record some music prior to me walking down the aisle, because they were quite good, and my guests thoroughly enjoyed them. My husband and I, however, were only able to hear a couple of songs, but what we did manage to hear was excellent. They were very professional, prompt, reliable, and in excellent communication prior to our event. My only regret was not being able to hear more of them! Perhaps I will have a dinner party in the future, where I may use their services again. I highly recommend their talents and service to anyone.
