It was a joy having the Philadelphia Strings at my son's wedding. The quartet did an amazing job for the ceremony and cocktail hour. Our guests commented on how lovely and elegant it was to have the strings at our event. Kudos to all musicians for being so flexible with their location for playing, due to the inclement weather. I would highly recommend the PSQ. The musicians are consummate professionals and added a beautiful touch to our special day. I will definitely book this group for our
future special occasions and tell all of my friends as well.

Working with Mugu was a dream come true! One of our close friends gifted us live music for our ceremony and it was wonderful. The string quartet was amazing, they showed up early and played through the welcome and the ceremony.

Mugu helped us construct a beautiful arrangement for the ceremony and I always felt as though he really wanted to make sure we were happy with everything. He was never pushy and he allowed us to take the time we needed to come up with the music selections.

From start to finish, we were extremely impressed with Mugu and PSQ. He was fun (and easy) to work with, immediately answered our questions, and helped plan an exceptional event. I can remember standing up front, listening to them play as our bridal party walked in, thinking, "Wow, these guys are incredible."

For cocktail hour, they broke out their rock strings and blew everybody away. One of my relatives said, "I need to plan an event so I can hire these guys."

From the elegance of their ceremony program to their unique and exciting cocktail hour songs, we couldn't happier. And, to top it all off, we booked our DJ (Tim from Ambiance Events) through PSQ, sight unseen. Tim was incredible, capping off an event we'll never forget.

Can't recommend these guys enough.

We had the Philadelphia String Quartet perform at the cocktail hour, before our wedding reception. When we heard their "Rock Strings," we knew we had to book them immediately. They are a group that is extremely talented, professional and easy to work with. They were quick to respond to my inquiry, and the process of booking them was a breeze. I left the song selection up to them, and they did not disappoint (they did ask if we had any preferences, must have songs, or songs we absolutely didn't want to hear). Our guests are still raving that it was such unique experience to hear the rock strings. I wish I could throw another party just to hear them perform again!

We had the Philadelphia String Quartet play during our wedding ceremony on 5/3 and they were outstanding! I was so excited to have PSQ play at our wedding and they did not disappoint. They are extremely talented musicians with a true passion for what they do. Mugu is professional, friendly, helpful and always responded to emails in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend PSQ. My only regret is that we didn't book them to play more than just our ceremony :) - Diana

We had an outstanding experience with PSQ. Mugu was our primary contact, and he was incredibly responsive, helpful, and professional throughout all of our communications. We got tons of compliments on our ceremony music, and we only wish we could have heard more, prelude and all! They are the best-of-the-best in terms of string trios / quartets in our opinion. A trio from PSQ was the price of a quartet from many other vendors, and we went with PSQ because of the quality. Best decision!

Amazing! Beautiful! Unique! Love, love, love!

Adding the Philadelphia String Quartet to our wedding ceremony was one of the best last-minute decisions we could have made for our wedding! The fact they were playing the ceremony was actually a surprise to all of our guests and most of our wedding party as well! We came up with a playlist for them for the entire ceremony, from the guests being seated to the processional, to the recessional -- all the songs we chose were more modern songs which PSQ does such a great job translating into strings. This is the one thing that makes me regret not having a videographer!! I would have loved seeing them play as guests arrived, and seeing the processional with the strings playing. While I was waiting to walk in with my dad, I could hear them playing each different song for my mom and then my bridal party, and finally, the song they began to play for me and my dad to walk in ("a thousand years") and it all sounded beautiful! I was tearing up before I took my first step down the aisle! Our contact, Miha, had a Skype session with us prior to the wedding to hash out the details of all the songs that would be played, the number in the bridal party, etc. and they executed everything perfectly! Would hire them again for sure! Guests loved the surprise -- including my mom! :) Not the cheapest for one hour of playing ($300/player, per hour) but they were worth every penny!

Philadelphia String Quartet played at our cocktail hour at the Union League on 10.26.2013. They were the most professional group of musicians, and their music was simply beautiful. We still have guests commenting on them. They were extremely easy to work with, and they played every song we asked them to play. If you are getting married, I would highly suggest hiring PSQ to make your event all the more memorable.

The Philadelphia String Quartet was AMAZING!!! I cannot say enough about how happy my husband and I are with them. We hired a trio for ceremony music and they played exactly what we asked them to play. As a young couple, we asked for them to play very specific love/modern songs with their instruments. Although we planned most of the songs ourselves, Mary was available whenever we asked her to speak with us and since I am Albanian she asked for Rajli to be the cellist that would be part of my trio. The other two were Mugu on violin and Miha on viola. When they played "Viva La Vida" for the bridal party to walk into the ceremony it was so fantastic I was in the back dancing as I was waiting my turn as the bride. Rajli saw me doing that and fed off my energy and continued to have fun as he was playing! It was great that all three musicians looked like they were having fun performing at my wedding and not just playing there because it was just another booking. They really enjoyed what they were doing and it showed! After the ceremony, myself and my husband and the bridal party returned to the bridal room to regroup. At one point I was called to come to the door and I see Mugu. She had come to offer congatulations from the group and compliment me on how I looked and how beautiful the ceremony was. That was so sweet and unexpected from a vendor. I told her they did a great job and I was glad they were there to help make my ceremony unforgettable! The only thing, and this is minor, I wish their stands that held their music sheets did not have advertisements. I really did not like that but I had forgotten to ask them beforehand not to have that so that's on me. Philadelphia String Quartet is a wonderful, talented group of musicians and I highly recommend them to any bride for their ceremonies.

I truly appreciated their insights, responsiveness and flexibility in managing some of our last minute requests/changes. On the night of our wedding, they added so much to the atmosphere and made everyone feel welcome. Walking down the aisle to their music made me feel like a queen! And they were so great during the dinner hour that one of our relatives couldn't hold back from getting down with them on the dance floor! What a great memory. Thank you, PSQ!!

The one area of our wedding my groom had strong opinions about was our music. He heard a contemporary string rendition of one of his favorite songs and wondered whether we could find something similar for our wedding. My groom and I wanted something a little less traditional than expected, but still not offensive or too shocking for our music. We have varying music tastes and wanted to use "our" songs as much as possible throughout the ceremony. We worked closely with Mugu, and two other musicians to create the exact ceremony we wanted. They were absolutely sensational about providing the appropriate equipment to give our recessional the kick we wanted, and to give the processional the romantic feeling we hoped for. While we were off taking picture during the cocktail hour, we heard the electric instruments were extremely unique and like our own performance in the middle of our wedding. The prices were extremely reasonable considering all the services they provided. We received nothing but support from beginning to end from PSC and I could not recommend them highly enough.

My wife and I wanted string/instrumental versions of some contemporary indie rock songs we both love, and when we told our venue's wedding coordinator that we would be using an iPod during the ceremony, she told us "ok, that's fine, but it can be a little bit of a wildcard --" She continued speaking, but I had heard enough. There is no need for "wildcards" on your wedding day. Immediately, my wife found the Philadelphia String Quartet, who upon our inquiry were very confident that they would be able to do a strings version of songs by Death Cab for Cutie, Bon Iver, and Oasis. They also told us about their electric-string duo who could play at our cocktail hour. We saw one youtube video and agreed immediately.

Every single guest who was in attendance raved not only about the beautiful performances at the ceremony, but they LOVED the electric string duo at the cocktail hour. Upon our detailed request, they covered everything from Stevie Wonder to Katy Perry to Capital Cities and it sounded amazing. I would highly recommend PSQ to anyone.

By far the best money we spent for our ceremony - they truly made the ceremony special for our guests. We heard from our guests that they were wonderful before the ceremony started, really setting the mood and getting the guests excited. They are amazing musicians and really love what they do - you can tell. We just got our photos back and looking at our ceremony photos the String Quartet is smiling and clapping along with our guests. They looked so happy to be playing at our wedding.

My son and daughter-in-law did a lot of searching for just the right musicians for their wedding last July, and discovered the Philadelphia String Quartet! They wanted a UNIQUE music experience for their special day, and what a memorable one it was! Thank you to all of them, including the DJ - oh-what-a-night-it-was!!!

If you truly are looking for the BEST musicians for your ceremony or reception, Philadelphia String Quarter is it! Our violinist was AMAZING at the church!!! He worked with the pianist and my sister in law throughout the whole mass and everyone could not stop raving about him. I came up to him after the ceremony and thanked him so much for playing, he was so kind and sweet!! Our guest especially loved the duet during the cocktail hour, I saw our guest tapping their feet on the ground while they played moves like jagger! I would recommend The Philadelphia String Quarter for anyone looking for musicians for weddings, partys, etc. Your company was worth every penny and more!! We still talk about the musicians today!!

We hired PSQ to play at our wedding...they were spectacular!! They played acoustics during the cocktail hour and electric strings during dinner...the dinner show was outrageous! Only issue is that they didn't put a sound system for the acoustic portion and the room was very big so it was difficult to hear them which made me sad because their music is beautiful! Mary, the manager was delightful, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend this as an elegant touch for a wedding!

The Philadelphia String Quartet were one of the highlights of my wedding day. I cant praise Mugu enough for his charm and artistry along with that of the lovely ladies accompanying him. They added an incredible elegance to my wedding ceremony with a sound that is rarely found for hire out to small affairs like mine. Mugu was able to deliver a highly proffesional presentation with such warmth and personal flair that my guests just raved about him. I would encourage any bride or event planner to put them at the top of their list of a must have vendor for an incredible event, they are worth every penny you might spend. Thanks Mugu and God Bless you for your well wishes and for making my day so memorable.

We received nothing but compliments about them from all of our 263 guests. They accommodated everything we asked for including learning specific songs we chose for our ceremony. We could not have asked for a better experience working with Mary Giannone and the PSQ musicians. We would not hesitate to recommend them for any event!

There really are no words to describe how AMAZING the Philadelphia String Quartet is. We really wanted to have live music at our wedding, but couldn't afford a typical band, and PSQ offered an awesome alternative that exceeded all of our expectations. They played for our ceremony and cocktail hour, and everyone who attended raved about them. Mugu was awesome to work with right from the start, and they even learned a country song to play as I walked down the aisle. The energy they created during the cocktail hour really made the setting and they rocked out. If you are planning a wedding or any other event, PSQ is a MUST.

Please do yourself a favor and book Philadelphia String Quartet NOW!

We received so many compliments from our guests. They were so very helpful during the planning. My husband and I are both very busy, so I let Mary know the vibe of the wedding and she took it from there! Thank you, can't wait to book PSQ again for our next event!

The Philly String Quartet is the BEST choice you can make in music for any occasion, and they will be one of the highlights of your event. They have such a wide range of styles that will have everyone engaged and enjoying every moment of their performance. They are so friendly and some of the easiest people to work with, especially when you're under pressure.

Guests remember your food and music (not your dress, flowers or favors...sorry!) so you will totally knock their proverbial socks off with the Philadelphia String Quartet! They performed for our ceremony and the reception. Whether you are a musician or tone deaf, they will help you every step of the way to produce a memorable wedding. I had two special (rather obscure) requests that needed a singer in addition to the strings and they came through in a stellar fashion. I can't wait for the video! It was a spectacular day for me and my groom, made so by the addition of the Philadelphia String Quartet! (Spend more on music, less on the dress.... just sayin'!)

Could not have asked for a friendlier, more talented and professional quartet. They added such a perfectly elegant touch to the evening and were so easy and attentive to work with in the planning process (especially mugu!). The quartet played a wide range of favorites from classical and jazz pieces (our favorite was Air/Simple Gifts and Clair De Lune), to folk (my dad is a huge Ken Burns' Civil War fan so they specially played the miniseries' anthem, "Ashokan Farewell" for him!), to contemporary (we really liked their Killers and Lady Gaga!) and they even came up to us before they left to congratulate us and wish us well.

So many of our guests pulled us aside to tell us how elegant our cocktail hour was thanks to these guys. If we ever have another big party, we will be sure to hire them again-worth every penny!!

We worked with the Philadelphia String Quartet over many months leading up to our wedding. Our songlist included many songs already listed by the PSQ along with many other tunes that they learned especially for our big day. We couldn't be happier with the results - from the ceremony, to the cocktail and dinner hours - and onward to playing a number of songs with the house band - the PSQ was a highlight of our wedding. They must have played over 6 hours and stood for a good portion of the time. We highly recommend the PSQ for any event you have in the works. We hope to work with them again some day!

The Philadelphia String Quartet provided the music for our ceremony and our cocktails. They were the perfect addition to our wedding. People are still commenting about how fantastic they were! Dealing with Geoffrey from PSQ was a complete pleasure. He was always responsive and professional- continually going above and beyond to make sure that we were happy with everything.

Originally I had wanted to get married in the church my parents were married in. This ended up not working out. My minister encouraged me to reflect on what things I could incorporate into my wedding to make me feel like I had the sphere of the church I had originally wanted. I realized that one very important thing to me was a specific song that is often sung by the congregation at weddings. Since not enough people would know this particular song out of my wedding guests, we opted to have a soloist sing the song. I asked if the Philadelphia String Quartet would be willing to learn the music to accompany the soloist with his song. They readily agreed and performed the song flawlessly. It was even more beautiful than I had hoped.

Everything about working with PSQ was any bride's dream. I would highly, highly recommend them!

The Philadelphia String Quartet absolutely made our wedding day what it was. From our first contact with them, they were professional, fun, and easy to work with. On they day of the wedding, they met our every need and really read the crowd. We had lovely classical music during the ceremony, and then our guests were delighted when they shifted to modern music for the reception - Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Dave Matthews and more! No one else could have provided that sort of mix for us. Them musicians really interacted with the guests and did a beautiful job of reading their reactions to different music, making the whole event a ton of fun. I would recommend them without hesitation!!!

They were fantastic. I used my own cantor and they really pulled it together with almost no guidance from me since I am a new catholic and have been to very few catholic mass weddings. Even the day of when Father messed up a little they were able to pick it up without issue. Very very very good musicians beautiful work.

PSQ was the first vendor I selected. I knew I wanted a string quartet for our ceremony, and of course, theirs was the first link on the list. When I realized that they also play rock/pop music, I knew I wanted them to play during cocktail hour too. We had 2 vocalists for our ceremony who had never sang together until the morning of our wedding. PSQ showed up 30 mins early to rehearse the song with them. I think they stole the show! Mugu was extremely easy to work with. We communicated via e-mail, which was fine with me, and his responses were always very prompt. We didn't have it in our budget for them to play electrical instruments during cocktail hour, which I knew was going to sound amazing. To my surprise, they brought their electrical instruments anyway! Thank you, PSQ, for a memorable evening, and I hope some of my friends book you so I can enjoy every minute of music!

I can't say enough good things about the Philadelphia Quartet. I was so pleased with their services for my wedding ceremony and reception. Mugu was my main contact and he captured the vision for my wedding very well and the quartet delivered beyond my expectation. Thanks Philadelphia Quartet! You were great!

The Philadelphia String Quartet was the perfect addition to our wedding ceremony. We initially contacted them because a friend has had them at her wedding and raved about their performance. They were very easy to work with and had in their repertoire every song that we could possibly imagine. The day of went very smoothly, and they sounded absolutely incredible. All of our guests are still talking about them. We would definitely recommend the Philadelphia String Quartet for your wedding!

I was overwhelmed by how professional, talented, responsive, and friendly Philadelphia String Quartet was. More than any other vendor, Mugu made me excited to read my emails from wedding vendors! He was always cheerful and responded EXTREMELY promptly to any message. He checked in both before and after the wedding to confirm that we were ready to go and that things went smoothly. He recommended music for me but also was prepared to play any song I wanted. The day of our wedding, it was 100 degrees outside, but they insisted that they would still perform outdoors - not only for the ceremony, but even for the 30 minutes prior! I told them that they could wait inside until the ceremony began, but they toughed it outdoors. Not to mention that their price was better than all of the other groups I emailed. Really the perfect selection for a string group - do not miss these guys!

The Philadelphia String Quartet was AMAZING! Our wedding was on June 2, 2012 and PSQ played before and during the ceremony, during our cocktail hour, and for the first hour of our reception; they were phenomenal from beginning to end! People are still raving, weeks later, about them - the amazing range of music they played and energy they had. The played both acoustic (for the ceremony) and electric (cocktail and reception) instruments, which allowed for an amazing variety. And beyond the day's performances, Mugu (their manager) was a dream to work with. He took time to walk through the music selections and make sure I was comfortable with what and when everything would be played. Mugu made the experience leading up to the day incredibly easy and PSQ made the day of unforgettable. Really -- I am so happy we decided to hire them. They truly transformed the day from a beautiful wedding to an unforgettable and personal experience.

The Philadelphia String Quartet is simply outstanding. We decided to hire a quartet for our church ceremony fairly late in the game. Mugu, the band leader went above and beyond to accommodate us. He assisted in picking the most perfect ceremony music, answered endless emails and made sure every piece of the equation was lined up perfectly before our wedding day. All the musicians were extremely talented and professional. So many guests commented on how wonderful PSQ was after the wedding. PSQ also learned how to play a traditional Persian song, and they played it better than the original version.

String quartets add a magical touch to wedding ceremonies in a way that a church organ, for example, cannot. PSQ is the best that is out there. Our ceremony would not have been as incredible and romantic without PSQ. I cannot say enough positives about PSQ.

They were eager and willing to learn and play anime and video game music at our wedding. They did a phenomenal job. Like ninjas, they crept in unnoticed, played perfectly and on cue, and left without notice. I'd recommend them to anyone and everyone who is thinking about hiring a string quartet. For my wife to walk down the aisle to the theme song of Studio Ghibli's Kiki's Delivery Service, and for everyone else to walk in to the theme song of Howl's Moving Castle, that was priceless.

It was so refreshing to have an actual string quartet to perform at our ceremony. They also played for our cocktail hour which was a hit.

It is amazing how recognizable all of the songs are even when played with a violin.

PSQ is extremely talented and great to work with.

My Wife and I were married on March 31, 2012 and we were lucky enough to have the Philadelphia String Quartet play both our ceremony and our cocktail hour. PSQ brought a level of style, sophistication, and beauty to our wedding that was beyond our dreams. Even now a month after the wedding our family and friends still rave about PSQ. Two of the many highlights include: a beautiful rendition of "Ave Maria" sung by soprano Sarah (contracted through PSQ), and the great medley of pop music at the cocktail hour.

On the Business side PSQ was just as great. We were able to put together a package deal with PSQ that included the Quartet, Sarah, and the Philadelphia DJ; all at a very reasonable price. Mugu, the head of the Quartet, was always easy to get a hold of and more than excited to help us plan the day. He was a great help when planning our Catholic wedding mass, he even suggested pieces of music for various moments of the mass.

I can't help but smile when I think of my wife walking down the aisle accompanied by PSQ's beautiful performance of "Air on the G String". Simply put... Thank You Philadelphia String Quartet.

They enhanced our wedding day with both music at the ceremony and cocktail hour. They were a pleasure to work with and actually enjoyed being such a big part of our day. I would recommend the PSQ to anyone looking to add strings to their most special day.

When we started planning our wedding, we had a vision of how we wanted the ceremony to be totally transformed and "brought to life" by the String Quartet. Philadelphia String Quartet did JUST THAT!! Working with Mugu was an absolute pleasure and we could not have asked for a better group of talented, charismatic, and humble musicians who "get" weddings and listened to OUR vision from the start. Their repertoire includes everything from Bach to Coldplay which will compliment both the traditional and modern ear. Our guests continue to RAVE about our choice of musicians for the ceremony and cocktail hour!! So, from the bottom of our hearts, we sincerely thank you for making a huge part of our day everything that we had hoped for.

They understood the unique approach we wished to maintain for every part of the ceremony and cocktail hour and gave great feedback during our brainstorming. Everything was perfectly executed, including the back-up instrumentals they performed for with our soloists. We couldn't have been happier with the meaningful role the music played...and there wasn't a dry eye after the ceremony! Thank you so much PSQ!!

Many guests were very impressed by the different songs that the duo was able to play and enjoyed the music immensely. Even a few weeks after the event people are still frequently telling me just how much they loved the string duo that played and how impressed they were by them. I highly recommend this group.

The Philadelphia String Quartet was great! They came in and got setup for the ceremony with no fuss and played. They moved to the patio and changed to rock music for the cocktail hour and an hour into dinner and the guests loved them - especially how much Mugu got into the music and worked the crowd up into a lively mood.

Very recommended!

They moved to the patio and changed to rock music for the cocktail hour and an hour into dinner and the guests loved them - especially how much Mugu got into the music and worked the crowd up into a lively mood.

Very recommended! Read less

Communication, responsiveness, professionalism, and quality of musicianship were beyond excellent. And their rates are reasonable. I would definitely recommend PSQ for anyone who is looking for the best!

The Philadelphia String Quartet was amazing! My husband requested one thing for the wedding and that was to have a string quartet play for our cocktail hour. We narrowed it down to 3 and spent one night listening to samples of all their music so we could make a decision. When we listened to the PSQ we were both so moved, we knew they were the right choice for us. The have a classical and modern repertoire so basically you can have whatever you want. We chose to go more classical with the ceremony and then modern with the cocktail hour. Everyone loved the music - people were raving about hearing Michael Jackson songs done by a string quartet as well as how gorgeous their renditions of Ave Maria was. If you want a string quartet you can not go wrong with the Philadelphia String Quartet. We are already trying to think of another event that we can use them for.

We had the PSQ at our ceremony and our reception. They played both traditional and modern pieces, using regular string instruments at our ceremony and electric instruments during our cocktail hour. Then, later in the evening they came back and the quartet played live again, this time over the DJ's dance music.

It was very impactful when the guests arrived to beautiful music and awesome colorful electric instruments! They really made the night and everybody loved them! They are very good at what they do and they made my wedding unique. The DJ also had good timing and was able to keep a steady group on the dance floor most of the night.

I loved the experience the quartet provided me and my husband. We used them for the ceremony and for the cocktail hour. They even had a light up violin at the cocktail hour, which everyone enjoyed.
There were punctual and perfect. We used a duet and I was concered it wouldnt be enough people, but it turned out wonderfully. I didnt get a chance to thank them since things were happening so quickly but I hope they read this. They made my wedding and cocktail hour rock.

The Philadelphia String Quartet was beyond our expectations. We listened to the CD provided and were blown away BUT the CD does not do them justice! The strings playing in our beautiful church were beautiful but the electric string quartet was over the top fabulous! They created a warm, fun, and energenic atmosphere for the reception.
All in All, Philadelphia String Quartet was a hit!
Thank you,

Mugu and the quartet provided unbelievable music for our ceremony. They responded immediately to every email leading up to the ceremony, and their professionalism was extraordinary. The music itself was beautiful and exactly what my wife and I were looking for. I would recommend PSQ for any event that you want to add a classical and unique experience for.

Being a musician myself, I am quite picky about live music, so I did a lot of research to find quality performers for my wedding. When I found PSQ (they are much more than a quartet!), I was thrilled because they were so versatile and very talented! I contracted them only a couple of months prior to my wedding, and they are so professional that they were able to accommodate my musical selections for my French style wedding at that late notice. I still have the Flower Duet singing in my head after so many months post "walk"! Anne & John, Wilmington, DE

Mugu is awesome! we had a two piece for cocktail hour and they were simply amazing. the only reason they do not have 5 stars across the board is because their manager was very unprofessional and not responsive to emails and i had to resend multiple emails to receive any response and her responses were not entirely responsive. our planner contacted Mugu who immediately contacted me and put my worries at ease. once Mugu took over everything went so smoothly and professionally. we received many compliments regarding the beautiful music, but the PSQ should reconsider their management.
