Violinists, and sisters, Jenny Jones and Becky Thoms have joined with cellist, Jean Beaudoin, to form a fun loving professional string trio. The combined knowledge and expertise on their instruments have made these three musicians a much sought after trio. Playing for a wedding takes a special talent for the exact timing of starting and stopping pieces so that they fit the bridal party's processionals, recessionals and everything in between. With hundreds of weddings under their belt, these ladies possess such a talent. When you book Queen City Ensemble to be your wedding music team, you will be assigned to one of the trio members who will individually work with you to ensure that your wedding music will be everything that you have always imagined it to be. As you navigate the process of choosing your perfect wedding music, your team member will be happy to provide as much guidance as you need. Your team member will also work with your wedding coordinator and or minister/celebrant to ensure that everyone is on the same page concerning the timing of your music- working out cues etc. After your music is selected, you will only need to sit back, relax, and enjoy your special day.

We have been performing throughout the Charlotte area for over ten years. Additional instrumentation may be available upon request.

Each member of our trio has an average of 23 years of experience. We are actively performing professional musicians. Members of our trio have played in numerous orchestras including the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, Ballantyne Chamber Orchestra, Charlotte Philharmonic Orchestra, Charlotte Civic Orchestra, Asheville Symphony Orchestra, Kingsport Symphony Orchestra and the Western Piedmont Symphony Orchestra.

As members of these and other ensembles, we have accompanied several world-class musicians including Ray Charles, John Tesh, Sandy Duncan, and cellist Lynn Harrell. Members of our trio have received classical training from Appalachian State University, North Carolina School of the Arts, Florida State University , Aspen Music Festival and University of South Florida. We have also received training from private instructors at Eastman School of Music, Indiana University, Rice University and the University of Cincinnati.

We look forward to being a part of your special day! Read less

QCE was so great to work with from start to finish! They were always prompt when returning emails and made the process of choosing ceremony music very simple. On the day of our wedding, QCE really added to the ambiance and everyone commented on how nice the music was. We couldn't have been happier with our ensemble selection!

They were great to work with! They were very flexible and professional. They were able to give great suggestions when I was stuck on which songs to choose, and their timing was perfect throughout our ceremony. I had a special request to play "Tale as old as Time" from Beauty and the Beast, and they did it no problem! They responded quickly to my inquiries. I would highly recommend them!

Queen City Ensemble String Trio provided the music for my daughter's wedding during the pre-ceremony and ceremony. These three beautiful musicians turned the venue into pure magic with their instruments. They brought glamour and romance into the air and each selection chosen was perfection. From the first contact to the day of the wedding, my Queen City Ensemble Team was dedicated to insuring that our every need would be taken care of. They are professional, promptly responded to every inquiry and took care of every request with ease. I never had an ounce of concern and on the day of the wedding, they were outstanding in every way. Guests were delighted with the beautiful music. Presentation is everything when hosting an elegant wedding. The ladies were lovely - dressed immaculately and groomed - something that is difficult to ask, but so important and appreciated when realized! Queen City Ensemble is a first-class vendor and, hands down, the best in Charlotte. M. Kaliser 10/19/2013

I have had the pleasure of working with the ladies of Queen City Ensemble on multiple occasions. Each time, they have been prompt, professional, easy to get in touch with, and, of course, talented! As a wedding planner, I cannot stress enough to brides how important it is to do your research when hiring vendors on your own. Not only do you want someone who is talented at their craft, but you also want someone who is organized, communicates with you, and is willing to go to every step to make your day special. Queen City Ensemble encompasses all of that and more. I will definitely continue to recommend them!
