    Amazing musicians!

    We booked Vancouver String Quartet for our July 9th wedding and it was the perfect addition to our day. We used the trio of musicians. They always responded to my emails in less than a day, we super helpful in picking the songs that were played, and offered a lot of advice for our day. They also provided a microphone and stand for an additional cost for our ceremony which was perfect. I highly recommend these musicians!

    Exceptionally Perfect 10/10

    Thank so much to the String Quartet,
    My wedding reception turned out beautiful just by having your performance alone. My wedding guests we鈥檙e very impressed and grateful for hearing wonderful love music, which is hard to find these days. I really appreciate the professionalism and grace that each trio member showed, It truly was a wonderful experience breathtaking many of the guest wanted to know how they could sign up for the quartet to play for them at their next event which made my heart very happy. Thank you again for a wonderful performance and experience I won鈥檛 forget for a lifetime. I know that you all play as a trio and a team but I wanted to personally thank Alistair Kok for helping to make my day special 鉂わ笍
