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

Planning a wedding in North Carolina from Washington DC was pretty difficult. When my husband and I decided we wanted a string trio for our wedding ceremony we looked online and ran across Queen City Ensemble. Listening to their music from their website we knew we wanted them. They were quick to return emails and sounded absolutely amazing on wedding day. They offer an extensive list of music to choose from, including current pop songs, which we chose to use for our processional and recessional. I was lucky to be able to hear the processional music from my bridal suite which helped calm me down before the big walk down the aisle. I would recommend QCE to anyone looking to add that classy touch to their wedding!

I booked Queen City Ensemble to play during our ceremony and cocktail hour at Duke Mansion and they were absolutely amazing! Unexpectedly, our ceremony had to be moved indoors about 15 minutes prior to the ceremony start time and they were so flexible and able to quickly re-set up indoors. They sent us a list of 'most requested songs' for each part of the ceremony which was a huge help. They also offer a mix of classical and contemporary music which was perfect for our cocktail hour.

If you're looking for beautiful live music at your wedding, then you should look no further than Queen City Ensemble! They were super accomodating and their repertoire was extensive. They knew just the right moments to play at during the ceremony without needing to rehearse. They're the best!

It was indeed a pleasure having the extremely talented Queen City Ensemble perform the ceremony music at my daughter's June 11th wedding! They were extremely professional, affordable and absolutely lovely to work with. Like most MOBs, I was tucked away with the rest of the wedding party and sadly we never formally met.

Take the music for your wedding or event seriously! Listen to chamber ensembles performing the many beautiful options QCE offers that aren't the standard wedding fare. QCE are such talented professionals: you cannot go wrong with anything they perform. They were a joy to work with, offered helpful suggestions, were very flexible regarding start/completion times, and were excellent in "reading" the crowd in order to gauge the volume/pacing of the music. Perfection!

Great musicians on the front end business wise and performance wise on wedding day. Will definitely use them again. As a popular wedding planner in the Carolinas, I can't afford to hire subpar vendors and it's nice to have Queen City available to use!
