    Superior Strings!❤

    We hired Artiststrings to play before and during my daughter's wedding ceremony and for the entire happy hour. A week later and I'm STILL hearing from family and friends on how they were blown AWAY by this group of world class professional and incredibly talented musicians!! I worked closely with both Chris and Carol on coming up with the song choices (their repertoire includes EVERYTHING from classic standards, Bach to the Beatles as well as contemporary hits of today. Personal choices of mine included rock hits by Rush, Led Zepplin and the Who...omg you HAVE to hear it to believe it, along with Game of Thrones theme song and more!) and they were EXTREMELY helpful with ideas and advice.
    Artiststrings took my daughter's wedding to the next level and beyond. Loved their customer service and commitment to excellence. I TOTALLY recommend this group for ANY Party or gathering requiring music!!!
    As a musician myself, the right music was paramount for this event. Artiststrings DELIVERED !

    Artistrings was amazing! We loved having them play at our wedding.

    Artistrings provided music for our wedding reception. We had the string quartet play for 4 hours and could not have been any happier. The music they played was beautiful and all of our guests loved them. They were also extremely easy to work with and we were able to choose all of the songs that were played. They have a very extensive repertoire list!

    Artistrings's reply:

    Thanks so much Nikki! You chose such great music, we had a blast playing it all for you and your guests. Our most sincere congratulations to you and David!!

    Beautiful music

    Carol and her team were absolutely amazing and helped make our special day that much more special. At the outset, they made an concerted effort to get to know me and the vibe we were looking for, offered helpful suggestions along the way and produced absolutely beautiful music that elevated the overall experience of our wedding. Can't recommend Artistrings enough - thank you so much!!!

    Artistrings's reply:

    Catherine, you had the most idyllic garden ceremony and we were absolutely thrilled to provide the music for your micro wedding. Many, many congratulations!!!

Carol is the consummate professional. She will work with you to create the wedding music you have always dreamed of: from the standard rep to more avant-garde selections. I enjoy working with her and have complete trust in her abilities.

Whether you are looking for traditional classical music or the hippest contemporary string quartet in Chicagoland, THIS IS IT. Artistrings always blows everyone away with their sound, ceremony music is always perfectly timed, and their professionalism is second to none. They also have the largest repertoire of contemporary pop music of any other string quartet. These guys ROCK.

Having worked with Atristrings and especially Carol on various weddings, I have found them to one of the best groups to work with. They are most accomodating from my point as an officiant. They are excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any of my clients.
