Kathleen Baker · Getting married on 02/10/2021
We got married at the end of October and had the Camerata String Quartet for the ceremony. Their playing was absolutely beautiful, and we loved how many modern song options they had! We were able to pick out a selection that really nicely captured our personalities, and having them at our ceremony made it so much more fun and personal! Our ceremony wouldn’t have been the same without them, and we are so grateful for their amazing playing! We coordinated all of this with Leyla, who was extremely responsive to our emails and helpful in the planning process. We would definitely recommend them as a string quartet for any occasion!Sent on 11/24/2019
Camerata String Quartet's reply:Thank you, Robert! It was so nice to get to know you both and play music in the Frank Lloyd Wright space. We're glad you liked our work and wish you a great married life! CSQ

Wonderful Addition to Our Ceremony!
Leyla was so wonderful to work with! We used the Camerata String Quartet for our wedding ceremony on New Years Eve. She is VERY prompt with responding to any questions or information we needed to know. She worked with our officiant to make sure everything ran smoothly during our ceremony. They were so wonderful to have on our big day! Thanks CSQ for making our ceremony so special!Sent on 01/12/2020
Camerata String Quartet's reply:Thanks, Emily! It was a lovely evening, both at the Madison Club and East Side Club. A festive end to the 2019 season. Best to you both. CSQ
Gyna · Married on 06/22/2019
I booked Camerata String Quartet about 20 months before my wedding. It was important to me to have them for my ceremony so I started my research early. From day 1, Leyla has been one of my favorite vendors. Her responses to emails are immediate and she is highly organized. She worked and communicated effectively/efficiently not only with me, but also with the church staff. Most importantly, Leyla and the rest of the team are also incredibly talented. Thank you for bringing my ceremony music vision to life. Brides, if you are looking for an organized, ELEGANT, kind and talented group, call Camerata String Quartet!Sent on 07/04/2019
Camerata String Quartet's reply:Thanks so much for these kind words, Gyna! We loved playing for you and it was so wonderful to meet and work directly with you. CSQ

You can’t go wrong with Camerata Strings! They performed at my wedding this past June and did a phenomenal job! I highly recommend them for anyone interested in having a string quartet at their event. They’re flexible, responsive, extremely professional, and listening to them play will make you shed a tear. Worth every penny.Sent on 07/07/2019
Camerata String Quartet's reply:Thank you for this wonderful review, Nicole! We have fond memories of your day on Monona Terrace. Best to you both...hope we see you again in the future! CSQ

Look No Further!
I wanted live music for our ceremony. I didn't want to use recorded music and worry about the walk down the aisle being timed and having an awkward artificial end, etc. Camerata was a great choice. They were extremely easy to work with. I appreciated how they were so quick to respond to each email and thorough with all my questions. I feel like some vendors don't actually read the entire email, but not the case with them. They followed up with me throughout the planning process. I planned my wedding myself and it was overwhelming. They were on top of it and made their part worry-free for me. I had two new songs that they had to learn and it was no problem at all. We did not have a rehearsal and since I was the bride I could not be there to greet them before the ceremony. We only communicated through email and I had to trust that they would set up and perform the songs as I hoped. And they did. The flower girl took an extra long but cute time to throw petals and they had to adapt and keep the song flowing, which was exactly the reason I wanted live music. I didn't have to worry about anything with Camerata. The planning was easy and the performance was great. Thank you, Camerata!Sent on 07/12/2019
Camerata String Quartet's reply:Thank you, Jessica! The weather cooperated, your friends and family were having so much fun and the flower girl was the cutest! We loved playing the music you selected and we're thrilled that you chose CSQ. Best to you both...

Our ceremony was the heart of the day
Everyone puts so much effort and planning into the reception but the ceremony truly is the heart of the day. We are so glad we went with the Camerata string quartet-they elevated the ceremony to a level I didn't even know possible! I will never forget the beautiful music and how it made me feel as I walked down the aisle. Before the wedding and during the planning process they were beyond excellent in responsiveness. I could always get ahold of them and that gave me peace of mind for the best day of my life.Sent on 07/08/2019
Camerata String Quartet's reply:Thanks, Tawny! It means a lot to us to know how special our music made you feel at your wedding. We loved playing for you and your family....best to you both! CSQ
Michael Place · Married on 12/31/2018
My wife and I utilized this wonderful group for our wedding on 12/31/18. We could not have asked for a better group to play for our wedding. They were timely with their responses leading up to the event. The quality of their music was amazing. We also appreciated their kind and warm remarks after the ceremony had concluded. Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a string quartet.Sent on 01/03/2019
Camerata String Quartet's reply:Happy New Year, Michael! And thanks for your kind words. Yours was a very stylish and sparking ceremony...so beautiful and so much fun! CSQ

Camerata Strings was AMAZING!!! I would recommend them in a heartbeat!! I was in contact with Leyla the entire planning process, and she was always so quick to respond and very on top of everything, which helped to ease my mind since we were planning our wedding from across the country. Camerata played the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour - they did an absolutely beautiful job! I received many compliments on the music. Camerata added elegance to our evening and we were so thankful to have them. If you are on fence, don't be! Book them, you won't regret it!! Thanks Camerata! :)Sent on 12/27/2018

Brynn · Married on 08/19/2018
The Camerata String Quartet was wonderful! My husband and I were blown away by how beautiful the music for our wedding ceremony was. Not only was the music incredible, but Leyla was a joy to work with. She was so helpful during the planning stages of the ceremony music and she worked well coordinating with our church music director. She understood our music vision and was incredibly professional in advocating for us when difficulties arose with the ceremony venue. Camerata Strings learned how to play an incredible version of "Rewrite the Stars" for our recessional song and it was one of the most special and personal touches of our wedding day! Thank you for sharing your beautiful music with us and being part of making our day perfect!Sent on 09/16/2018
Camerata String Quartet's reply:Thank you, Brynn! It was truly a special experience for us to be part of your wedding ceremony in that beautiful space. We wish you the best as you begin married life! Camerata String Quartet

Amazing Music Experience!
Camerata String Quartet provided gorgeous music for my daughter's Catholic Mass wedding in Madison.

The music was absolutely amazing!Sent on 12/07/2018

Clay e Konnor · Married on 08/12/2018
Outstanding in every way.
Camerata played our wedding back in August and if there were a sixth star I'd leave it. These guys are consummate professionals. I am a professional musician myself so I am probably pickier than the average person. Camerata handled even very specific requests with the utmost professionalism. They will be a memorable part of your event. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.Sent on 12/05/2018
Camerata String Quartet's reply:Thank you, Clay! This is high praise indeed....AND you know how much we enjoyed playing for your ceremony and reception! Thanks again for choosing the Camerata String Quartet! CSQ
Molly · Married on 07/28/2018
The Camerata String Quartet made our wedding ceremony perfect! Their music is so beautiful and it is amazing to see and hear how much care and thought is put into each note that they play. I have known some of the quartet members for many years and can attest to their professionalism and dedication to making each performance personalized and special. I would absolutely trust this group to play at my wedding again, and would recommend hiring this group if you want to be assured that they will create an incredibly special atmosphere to be remembered for many years to come.Sent on 08/19/2018
Camerata String Quartet's reply:Thank you, Molly! This is a lovely testimonial and we absolutely loved playing for both of you! Best to you as you begin married life. CSQ

Lori · Married on 05/19/2018
This is a group of true professionals. From start to finish, they were most accommodating and easy to work with. They helped with music selection and even learned a new song that we loved, "I CHOOSE YOU". There was absolutely nothing more I could have asked or expected from them. Of all the money we spent on the wedding, this was without a doubt our wisest spend. I recommend them for any occasion, any time, anywhere. Fondly, Lori DeLeeuwSent on 06/12/2018
Camerata String Quartet's reply:Thank you so much, Lori! It was great to meet you and we really enjoyed playing for your daughter's wedding and also was impressed with the message and feeling that day. Our best to you, Camerata String Quartet.
Mitzi · Married on 09/23/2017
Think of Camerata String Quartet (CSQ) and think of sweet harmonic melodies that stir the heart and soul to its foundation providing memories that last a life time. This is the music that is a must have for any wedding; one where the music moves you to remembrance of that special, magical time.Sent on 10/11/2017
We were extremely fortunate to have CSQ play for our daughter’s September wedding at the Lake Windsor Country Club. In addition to playing for the ceremony, they played during the hors d'oeuvres too.
We were likely one of the most demanding customers CSQ ever worked with because not only did we request hours of specifically selected music to be played, but we worked with Leyla, manager and violinist of CSQ, discussing which instruments were to be played and when. Additionally, in some instances, the music had to be written, not purchased, and then arranged for the various instruments. Leyla and CSQ not only surpassed these high requirements but Leyla was always a pleasure to work with. Her musical acumen and talent provided deep insight into compositions, producing angelically euphonious moments that pinnacled this once in a life time event.
We highly, highly recommend CSQ for your special occasion. Your expectations too will be surpassed.

Danica · Married on 09/02/2017
The Camerata String Quartet was AMAZING. Their website was easy to navigate through and their business manager and violinist, Leyla, was great to work with. Leyla and the group played a special arrangement that we requested for the processional. Everything was mapped-out prior to the wedding day using forms that the quartet developed, which gave me confidence that we were all on the same page. They were on-time and delivered everything that they promised the day of our wedding. They played beautifully! I am so grateful to this talented group of musicians. Thank you!!!!Sent on 09/11/2017
Camerata String Quartet's reply:Thanks, Danica! It was so great to meet you both and yours was a lovely ceremony! From the colorful dresses and flowers to the music choices, it was a wonderful day.

We have nothing but positive things to say about the Camerata String Quartet.
