Best Quartet Experience Ever!

We used Elegance Quartet for our wedding in January. From start to finish the experience of working with them was phenomenal! We first saw them perform at our friend’s wedding, and we were so impressed, that we knew we had to have them for ours. Before we had booked a venue, we were reaching out to them for more information. We chose their full package. Having them play the ceremony cocktail hour, dinner hour, and reception. Jenny and Ray worked closely with us to ensure that everything was as we envisioned it. We received so many comments and compliments on how wonderful the music and entertainment was. All our guests were thoroughly impressed. I can’t picture our wedding without Elegance Quartet. They truly were the icing on the top of the cake. I can promise you won’t be disappointed. They will deliver for you a magical experience that will only enhance your wedding or special event. Many thanks and love to Jenny, Ray, and the whole team.

Wedding Quartet Simply Amazing!

Jenny and the Elegance String Quartet are simply the best. My wedding ceremony was elevated to something very special with them playing music throughout. Nothing but professional from start to finish even in less than ideal temperatures for an outdoor ceremony. Thank you so much and if you’re looking to bring extra life to your ceremony do not wait to book them. It will be the best decision you’ve ever made!!

Fantastic Vendor Partner

Jenny & Ray did an outstanding job for our October wedding. We had them do a string quartet for our ceremony, pianist for cocktail hour and live/electric violin/DJ for the dancing portion of the night. It was really great working with them throughout the entire experience. Highly recommend.

Ray Bicolli
Ray Bicolli
Cellist, Music Director, Owner

Ray Bicolli has made his career in the special events industry since 2010 and has crafted a unique sound that distinguishes Elegance String Quartet among others. Raised in a family of musicians, he earned his Master’s in cello performance and soon after founded the ensemble that would become ESQ. What began as a hobby of arranging modern songs for classical instruments became the quartet’s trademark. Their unique style and sound have earned them a reputation as one of the most sought-after ensembles in the tri-state area and beyond: recent engagements include special commissions for Comic Con, Musikfest in Bethlehem, and an invitation to perform at Google’s Headquarters in Silicon Valley, CA. Ray’s ingenuity lead him to develop JukeTune, a digital jukebox app that allows event guests to engage with the band by making requests. Ray’s relationship with his clients, commitment to excellence, and innovative approach has garnered rave reviews; his ability to foster a creative and enjoyable work environment has allowed him to build a consistent roster of some of Philadelphia’s best musicians.

An Elegant Affair By Marianne An Elegant Affair By Marianne Wedding Officiants

An Elegance String Quartet is Philadelphia's most prestigious musical ensemble. An Elegance String Quartet was borne on a cruise ship in 2009. Since then, this extremely talented group of artists had the distinct honor to perform at some of the world's most distinguished stages and alongside the music industry's big name performers. If you think that An Elegance String Quartet's musical repertoire is limited only to classical music, think again. Ray and his fellow musicians play an array of accompaniments ranging from classical standards to today's top hits and changing every year to keep their music fresh and stylish. Their jazz combo features saxophone, keyboard, drums, and bass, and can be modified to your liking. You can always listen to one of their public live performances or listen to recorded selections on their website. If you're looking for something different but elegant, I suggest you let An Elegance String Quartet perform at your event. You won't be disappointed. PS tell them Rev Marianne sent you.

I have been officiating at wedding ceremonies for many years now and I have had the pleasure of working with many musicians that make the ceremonies so special. In all of those I can assure you that Elegance String Quartet is at the top of the game! Ray and his associates are not only consummate professionals, but they are seamlessly integrated into all that happens on your special wedding day. Now, for many, that may seem like a 'given', but I can assure you that when the musicians are 'off' the entire ceremony is, too. I have never once had an issue with Elegance String Quartet! Ray always greets me when I arrive and we exchange updates and ensure that we are on the 'same page', then, their professionalism and expertise is very apparent as they give their very best and the music is simply wonderful! The music is absolutely stunning, the musicians are a true pleasure to work with, and I would honestly recommend them to anyone looking for this exquisite touch to your special wedding day. Thank you, Ray, for being simply the best! Father Jim St. George, Saint Miriam Parish, Wedding Officiant!
