About

J&K Strings is a violin/cello duo serving the NEPA area. We started playing together over 15 years ago - ever since we were budding string players in middle school. Now, as professionals, we've taken on playing weddings and other special events. We are versatile musicians who enjoy leaving the "classical comfort zone" and playing different styles of music. Most of our weddings are played together as a duet, but we can also add more players to the mix to create a trio or quartet if you're interested!

John and Katie were the best!!

John and Katie did a fantastic job on our wedding day. Leading up to the event John was very responsive and helped us make any decisions needed. They had a ton of songs to choose from and also said they would play songs that weren鈥檛 on their list. Both were excellent musicians and played lovely music during our ceremony. Thank You!!
