When one thinks about music for a wedding, a bride’s first thoughts often comprise two words: “String Quartet.” The ambience of the ceremonial celebration with it’s gorgeous floral arrangements and bridal gown and gathering of family and friends requires an imaginary sound track of rich, traditional classical music.
Or does it? The Mother-of-the-Bride is imagining, “Pachabel Canon,” “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik,” “Trumpet Voluntary.” But, the Bride & Groom may be imagining meaningful music from the more contemporary soundtrack of their lives; “Katy Perry,” “Alicia Keyes,” “The Black Eyed Peas.”
The Lake Minnetonka String Quartet is able to bridge the gap and provide glorious music, new and old, to bring personal, glorious sound to this, most personal of celebrations.
The four members of the LMSQ are conservatory trained, classical musicians of a new generation. They attended the most prestigious music conservatories in the country; The Oberlin Conservatory of Music, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and the Manhattan School of Music. Their ability to perform at the highest technical and musical levels is unequaled. Among them are two talented arrangers who are able to provide customized arrangements for their clients from a long playlist of suggested choices. In just the past year, along with performing classical wedding “standards,” they arranged and performed music by AC/DC, The Beatles, Josh Groban, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd, Frank Sinatra, Queen, Carly Rae Jepsen, Led Zeppelin, and Jason Mraz.
The Lake Minnetonka String Quartet is fast becoming one of the most popular wedding string quartets in Minnesota. Their clients include Minnesota Twins star player, Joe Mauer, and happy brides from Brainerd to Harriet Island to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Their testimonials include these enthusiastic comments:
“Simply put, they sound incredible! They exceeded all of our expectations. All of the members were professional, personable, accommodating, on time, and they brought joy to our family and all who attended this wedding.”
“The Lake Minnetonka String Quartet listened to our vision for the ceremony and helped create a custom playlist to fit the mood of our event. They were incredibly easy to work with and the results were more than we could have ever asked for. They truly took the stress out of planning and it is a part of our wedding day that we will never forget.”
“ I cannot think of anyone else who could have matched our hopes and dreams the way the Lake Minnetonka Strong Quartet were able to do. Their music perfectly created the mood we wanted on our special day. Thank you so much for the elegance you added to our wedding ceremony. It was so beautiful! What an impressive collection of talent!”
The LMSQ plays indoors and out, amplified or unplugged. They can improvise when the best-laid plans require it, and even though wedding music is background music to the real stars of the show, the honor they feel at being a part of a deeply special day shines in their performances.

Lake Minnetonka String Quartet was one of the best parts of our wedding, hands-down! Maisie was absolutely wonderful to work with throughout the planning process, and the group was delightful on the big day. We wanted a quirky mix that was 100% us - and that's exactly what we got with LMSQ. Mozart, Elgar, Legends of Zelda, Sara Bareilles, Star Wars, Black Eyed Peas...they did it all. It was PERFECT. Book them now!Sent on 05/29/2017

I cannot even begin to express how fantastic Maisie & the Lake Minnetonka String Quartet was at our wedding. We booked a trio for our ceremony and cocktail hour music. The we so wonderful - many guests commented on how incredibly good they are. I wish I got to relax and listen to them the whole time they were playing. When the started playing our processional music I got goosebumps. Maisie is the sweetest - such a great person to work with. Book them - they are the best!!!Sent on 09/15/2016

Lake Minnetonka String Quartet was AMAZING! They played at our wedding in June (ceremony and cocktail hour). The music was wonderful and everyone complimented the performance. I would highly recommend Lake Minnetonka String Quartet, as they are extremely talented and easy to work with. Our wedding day was perfect, and we were so pleased with their involvement.Sent on 07/26/2016
