About Appassionata String Quartet

The Appassionata String Quartet is available to provide music for weddings, cocktail hours, receptions, background music, etc. The quartet repertoire spans from traditional wedding music to professional classical quartets to comtemporary pieces. BIO: The Appassionata String Quartet-often referred to as ASQ- was formed under the direction of Sylvia Ahramjian in the winter of 2004 at West Chester University. Since then, the quartet has performed a variety of genres of music at numerous venues along the east coast. During the summer of 2006, the quartet was selected to represent the US and West Chester University at Guizhou University in Guiyang, China.

Dedicated to the education of children, the quartet has put together children’s workshops and master classes focusing on performance and related arts topics throughout Pennsylvania. They have made appearances at Great Valley School District and Cecil County School District in Maryland.

Joy earned her Masters in Viola Performance at WCU in December 2011. Liz is pursing a Masters in Music at Temple University.

    Beautiful choice for our wedding day

    We had the best experience with Appassionata String Quartet! They had a wide range of music to choose from and were able to accommodate our selections. They sounded amazing and created the perfect atmosphere for our wedding ceremony. We are so thankful for the part they played in our special day!

    Appassionata played for my son's wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Joy D. was a delight to work with. Always prompt with responses to my inquiries and the music was great. I was uncertain about hiring a quartet through the internet but Appassionata met all my expectations and laid to rest any concerns. Price was very reasonable and well worth it. Highly recommend this group for their professionalism and friendliness.
