Beautiful Music

Kristen and her team are incredibly professional, flexible, reliable and responsive. They were able to tailor a duo/quartet ensemble for our wedding at very fair rate for the high quality music and service that they delivered. Played beautiful music from a diverse repertoire, including Chinese music for our tea ceremony. Actually followed our songs lists. I highly recommend and would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Perfect Addition to our Day!

CBSQ is incredibly talented and so easy to work with! April was very responsive with all my questions leading up to the big day, and their planning document made it very easy to organize and choose all our music. So many of our guests commented about how amazing the quartet was and how their presence elevated the whole mood of our ceremony and cocktail hour. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to add live music to their wedding day!

Great repertoire and custom piece!

My husband and I really wanted to have some live music at our wedding, but didn’t want to go with a full band all night. We had been to a friends’ wedding that had a jazz trio for the ceremony and cocktail hour and had really enjoyed the warm ambiance it helped create to have musicians there at the start of the evening. So, we started looking into string quartets.

Cherry Blossom String Quartet stood out to us because of their incredibly large and varied repertoire (and the high quality sound files they had on their website for us to listen to). We were able to choose songs from movie scores and video games for before the ceremony (to welcome guests) and then a fun mix of pop music covers and jazzy or motown classics during the cocktail hour. One wedding guest who is a professional violist complemented the quality of the music!

We had a very particular song that we wanted as our processional that was not in their repertoire. Cherry Blossom worked with a composer to arrange the piece custom for us and it was so well done it really made the ceremony extra special.

Not only did they have a great selection of music played to high quality, but they were also very easy to work with and comparable in price to other options that we looked into. All in all, a wonderful experience!

One of the best musical groups in the Washington, DC area. This is the "A" team. Wonderfully played, and happy music (not drab or funereal). After I officiate a ceremony, I always sit near them at the reception's cocktail party just to hear their wonderful music.
