Incredible Experience! Best Decision for our Wedding

If you are thinking of adding ceremony music to your wedding, look no further! Dan and the Cape Cod String Quartet were absolutely phenomenal to work with. I can confidently say it was on the best decisions we made for our wedding. Our ceremony music sounded heavenly, and it was the perfect addition to our day. Dan was incredibly responsive and caring. We messaged back and forth numerous times, and each time he was understanding, patient, and professional. He even made sure to call me the week of to make sure he was capturing our vision perfectly. On the day, the whole team showed up early to practice, and were all so friendly and kind. All of the wedding attendees commented on how incredible the music was. It truly felt like a dream having them there. Thank you Dan & the Cape Cod String Quartet!

Book Cape Cod String Quartet

Dan and his team were amazing! We were on the fence about booking ceremony music separately from our band and are SO glad we followed our vision and booked Cape Cod Strong Quartet. They were phenomenal, the music was beautiful and Dan was incredibly easy to work with. He was very responsive and attentive leading up to the day. If you’re looking for strings we cannot recommend Cape Cod String Quartet and Dan enough!

Simply phenomenal!

Dan and the Cape Cod Strings were simply phenomenal to work with. They provided the sophisticated musical element we dreamed of for our wedding ceremony and helped us to identify several string renditions of contemporary songs we loved to play while guests were getting seated. Beyond that, Dan was communicative and easy to work with. The entire experience was a joy all around, and I can't recommend them highly enough!

Concert

Join the Cape Cod String Quartet for an unforgettable experience at their "Spring Is Here” Concert Series, where the spotlight will be on Max Richter's groundbreaking work, "Spring 1 Recomposed." Richter's unique approach to Vivaldi's timeless "The Four Seasons" goes beyond mere transcription and rearrangement. In his own words, he absorbed Vivaldi's original work "into his own musical bloodstream.”

In addition to Richter's innovative composition, the Cape Cod String Quartet will present a diverse selection of pieces, including Mozart's "Dissonance" quartet. This quartet opens with an introduction that foreshadows the mystery and romantic pathos reminiscent of late Beethoven. At times, it even flirts with the twentieth-century atonality characteristic of Arnold Schoenberg.

Continuing the program, George Walker's "Lyric for Strings” will be featured. Composed when Walker was only 24 years old, the piece's sound, structure, and instrumentation are clearly inspired by the famous Adagio for Strings composed by Walker’s Curtis Institute classmate Samuel Barber in 1936.

Date: From 03/03/2024 to 03/03/2024 Schedule 03:30 PM - 05:00 PM
