Winner of the 2014 Couple's Choice Award!! Our elegant approach and fresh twists make your music something to remember!





Congratulations on your engagement, and I'm so glad you're here to read more about us. We want the music on your wedding day to be the perfect complement to such a wonderful event.

We are professional musicians, and as such we are creative people. We can't help that. We also can't help wanting to use our creativity as much and as often as possible! That's why we enjoy putting our talents together to create just the right mood for your wedding day.

Since we are all professional orchestral musicians we can provide our clients with a life-long, in-depth understanding of music. But classical musicians don't just love one style of music, we love it ALL! We have a great time playing jazz standards and we really enjoy the new trend of rock music arranged for string quartet. (In fact, one of our violinist's dreams came true when we recently performed Radiohead for string quartet!)

As the organizer for the Vanderbilt Strings I think I have the best role of all. I love being in touch with my clients and bouncing ideas back and forth with them. Since I have always kept a careful eye (and ear!) to what works and doesn't work, my clients find me to be a great resource for new inspirations.

In short, we love what we do, and we think it shows!

We used Vanderbilt Strings for our wedding ceremony beachside in December. Janie was absolutely amazing to work with and so prompt and helpful when helping make music selections. The quartet was beyond talented and the music was breathtaking. I highly recommend them to anyone!

They did a beautiful job! All the guests raved about what a nice job they did. We had a duo play during a beach ceremony and provide music for a cocktail hour on the beach. So pleasant.

The trio we hired provided beautiful music for our ceremony. I communicated with Janie upon first signing the contract, and she was very helpful and prompt with her emails. Our wedding was on the lawn by the beach, and I could hear the trio playing from my hotel suite room while I was waiting to be called down to walk down the "aisle." It was absolutely beautiful and our guests commented on how much they enjoyed them. My only regret was that I did not get the chance to personally thank them - my coordinator had handled everything when they arrived so I did not even get to meet them. But my husband and I are so happy we chose them - thank you!!!

This was a selection from the Resorts preferred vendor list & was recommended by their onsite wedding coordinator. We hired a trio for our wedding and they arrived promptly and the music was perfect. They made the payment & music selection easy & simple. We would definitely hire them for any future need we may have. I highly recommend them.

We used The Vanderbilt Strings during our destination beach ceremony and outdoor cocktail hour. We also were able to include the stand up bass as part of the quartet. They did such a fabulous job! All of our guests raved about them all evening long and even after the wedding. They have music samples on their website and also cover a wide range of music styles. Janie is courteous, professional and will respond to your emails in a very timely manner. If you want to add some class and style to your ceremony/cocktail hour I highly recommend using The Vanderbilt Strings as you will not be disappointed and neither will your guests.

Talk about a group that is able to be extremely flexible and "wing" it - as we never had a rehearsal and there really was no need to have one! They were SPOT ON and did an incredible job!! You're hiring professional musicians and a team that knows what to do with weddings. I provided a script of the ceremony in advance that helped them follow along, which I think makes things easier for cues. We hired a String Trio for our ceremony on the beach and they did an amazing job! Hire with confidence.

We worked with them for my November wedding. Janie was extremely responsive and flexible, working with us last minute. Their online selection/event planning service is great and helps you easily plan the music you want during different parts of your ceremony. Jen, the violinist, played beautifully. She was extremely flexible and professional during the crazy/disorganized time leading up to our event. I really could not be more pleased! Wonderful!

I was tremendously pleased with Vanderbilt Strings as our ceremony music, as we had a solo violinist who was great. Janie is super easy and flexible with the music selection and scheduling. She makes it easy for you to select the pieces, and their online selection form is very user friendly and efficient. I would absolutely recommend their services to my closets family and friends!!! Thank you VS! :)
