Perfect for ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner

We worked with Artistrings for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner and could not have been more impressed. We had the string quartet for the ceremony, and their rendition of Drops of Jupiter for my processional was beautiful. The Jazz trio created a lively atmosphere during our dinner that kept the energy high until it was time to dance. Highly recommend!!

Absolutely Perfect

We hired Artistrings to perform for our guests as they entered the Grand Ballroom for our Wedding Ceremony, to perform during our Wedding Ceremony (as the Wedding Party was entering/exiting the ballroom), and to perform during our Cocktail Hour. We ended up hiring a DJ for our Reception, but we still wanted some sort of "Live Music" aspect, and we absolutely hit the jackpot. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The quality of sound was second to none, and the songs we chose to walk down the aisle to were performed beautifully. I would easily recommend this group to anyone who inquired about hiring a string quartet to play in part in some facet of their Wedding Day.

Fantastic wedding string quartet

We loved our experience working with Artistrings! They were very responsive and helpful throughout the selection process, offered us plenty of different combinations to choose from, and also have a massive song catalog to work off which lets you customize the vibes you're looking for! Carol and Chris are extremely kind and thoughtful people, super easy to work with, and the quartet sounded incredible at our wedding! We were thrilled with how it worked out. We highly recommend working with Artistrings if you want to add some wonderful live music to your event!

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.
