Formed in 2006, the Organic String Quartet is a professional music ensemble that caters to live events in the Southern California area, including Los Angeles, Orange County, Palm Springs, San Diego, and Santa Barbara. 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, Celine Dion, Frank Ocean, Macy Gray, Barbara Streisand, Karyn White, Natalie Cole, and more.



OSQ was the featured music group on KCAL 9's 2011 special-edition wedding episode and appeared on the season finale of BRAVO's 'Millionaire Matchmaker' that aired in November 2011. The quartet also shot a viral video for Qualcomm in 2013 which has garnered over 111,000 views on Youtube. And in February of this year, OSQ was featured in a web editorial for the Southern California magazine, LOCALE. 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.

Organic String Quartet was out of this world PHENOMENAL!

When I was creating my perfect wedding, I had already decided what I wanted to walk to: A live version of Priscilla Ahn's "Dream" with a lead singer. So finding a creative, talented and qualified string quartet to meet my needs was a bit of a challenge, but I found it in OSQ!

We met with Alicia a year and a half before our wedding and she was very sweet, receptive and answered all of our questions. She also informed us that she was the singer in the group. After hearing their samples online, I was confident in their ability to perform at our wedding and we signed a contract with them

As the days lead up to our wedding day, we were having issues with our location in regards to amplification and electrical needs. I was so stressed with everything and didn't know what was required (as there were so many moving parts and vendors to work with for this ONE thing). Alicia was the nicest vendor during this whole, confusing process. She managed to coordinate everything with the vendors and got down to the matter.

In the end, this group was on time, set everything up and were amazing! We requested that upon arrival, our guests heard jazz and cocktail hour stuck to pop hits. Everyone was in awe of their talent and the overall vibe they gave our wedding. Having a string quartet greet our guests at our outdoor, vineyard wedding really made this event more classy and impressive. If you have the money (compared to other quartets, they are not as expensive!) and want a sophisticated vibe at your wedding, it is worth the investment!

I used Organic String Quartet for my wedding ceremony. Due to financial constraints, I could only use a string trio, but the sound was still full and beautiful. Alicia was responsive and helpful, and made herself available to discuss the details of set up and the timeline before the wedding. Their execution of the music and my timeline were perfect and it fulfilled my dream of having live string music as I walk down the aisle. Everything I asked them to do was done without error!

Their repertoire of music ranges from traditional to pop, so you have plenty of choices. Since music was incredibly important to me, it was nice to have a fantastic list of songs to choose from. I also did quite a bit of research on vendors, and they were by far the cheapest of all the vendors I found. You can't go wrong with Organic String Quartet! They are dependable, and even my wedding coordinator was impressed and added them to her list of vendors.

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 (OSQ) was a big part of our wedding reception's entertainment. It was such a treat to hear our favorite songs played by strings at our wedding. It was definitely a nice touch to our special day and something very unique! They have a large playlist and are very accommodating with the music selection. They were even gracious enough to arrange for two new songs of our choice! OSQ was punctual, dressed well, and very easy to work with at our wedding. Highly recommend using them as primary entertainment over traditional background DJ music.

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!
