    Wonderful!

    Ray and the quartet were absolutely lovely! They learned a song for my husbands processional, and absolutely nailed our cocktail hour request of classic AND modern songs played throughout. They were absolutely fantastic! Would absolutely recommend.

    Perfect Wedding Quartet!

    The Elegance Quartet played a major role in making my daughter’s wedding elegant and musical! They played beautifully and sensitively at the welcome time, the ceremony, the cocktail hour and the dinner, knowing when to pick it up, be romantic, or entertain my granddaughter with Frozen songs. They were punctual and set up in various areas of the wedding venue as needed. And Ray, the musical director, was great to work with--always responsive to my emails, helpful in song choices, and perfect in playing our choices on cue.

    Elegance String Quartet - "Where the violins come to life!!!"

    I arranged to have The Elegance String Quartet perform at my daughters wedding in July 2019. The Music Director Ray Bicolli and his team personified excellence and professionalism the entire time! The music set was a beautiful rendition of classical morphed into rock and them R & B. It was amazing!!! Then I had the honor of having the Quartet accompany me and the Tabernacle Baptist Church Minister in the song "The Prayer." Our guest were in awe and mentioned to us throughout the entire ceremony and reception how beautiful the music was. I can't wait until my next affair. I will definitely have the Elegance String Quartet again!

    We had a wonderful experience with Elegance String Quartet and would certainly recommend! They were so accommodating, and Ray was so awesome to work with. There were so many songs to choose from; it was incredible! The music was beautiful for our ceremony, and our guests were raving about them. I am so happy with our choice to hire them!!

    Made our ceremony so beautiful!

    I am so glad I found them. I even paid a little extra to have them travel all the way to Sussex County NJ because they were so good. The repertoire list is nothing like I ever seen. I thought I would never find a trio that would be able to play all the different types of songs I wanted for my wedding, so they were totally worth it to me. Ray was an incredible communicator and very knowledgeable. He answered all my questions even when I was over six months out. I wish I had hired them for more time, but they just did our prelude and ceremony. So amazing, hopefully something will come up where I need to hire a quartet again! lol

    Amazing work!

    My wedding was this past Saturday night at the Arts Ballroom in Center City Philadelphia. For the past few months, I worked with Ray Bicolli. He was amazing! So responsive, consultative and easy to coordinate with. We hired a cello player from his group to perform with the piano from our band. I didn't have to worry about anything and Ray made me feel super at ease. Richard on the cello was incredible and I was very impressed. Thank you Ray for making this process so easy!

    Such a talented group

    We had Elegance String Quartet perform at our wedding, and would highly recommend working with them! Working with Ray to plan the event was a pleasure, and we really appreciated their deep repertoire from which we were able to choose the most meaningful pieces to us across genres (from Sigur Ros to Enya to Mendlessohn to Hall & Oates). Their performance during the ceremony and cocktail hour was wonderful, and we received so many compliments on how the music set the stage for a beautiful ceremony. We highly recommend working with them!

    Just Fantastic!

    Elegance String Quartet played at our wedding this past September. They played our ceremony and cocktail hour and were the talk of the town! Our guests absolutely loved them as did we! The whole process was super easy, and they have a great song selection to choose from! I requested the Game of Thrones theme to be played at cocktail hour and they did not disappoint!

    Incredible!

    Ray and his musicians played for my ceremony and cocktail hour for my wedding and I could not be happier! They were extremely professional and they played beautifully. My dad, who had requested live music for the cocktail hour, was thrilled and could not stop raving about them.

    It was so easy to communicate with them throughout the planning process and to send them what music we wanted them to play.

    I highly recommend them for any and all events!

    Hire them now!!

    We hired Elegance Quartet to play during our ceremony and our cocktail hour for our wedding. Our guests are still raving about how amazing they were! Throughout the entire process, they were very professional, responded to emails quickly, and guided us when we were ready to set up our ceremony. Hire them now!! I wish I hired them to stay and play all night; you don't even need a DJ or a band!! Elegance is an amazing choice to make your wedding absolutely perfect!

    Highly recommended

    We hired the Elegance String Quartet for an outdoor wedding ceremony and cocktail hour in August.
    The ceremony was classical with acoustic instruments, cocktail hour was contemporary with electric instruments. So much fun! They made the whole event come to life... putting on a show and taking requests on the spot.
    They did an absolute perfect job. Highly recommended!

    A Super Talented Group!

    I would highly recommend hiring the Elegance String Quartet for your wedding. They are incredibly talented and the music was beautiful! They suggested that during the cocktail hour they play more “hits” than traditional, classical music and it was a huge success! The guests loved it! During the planning process, Ray was extremely responsive and helpful. It even rained DURING our ceremony and we had to rush inside when it started to pour and they played a nice song in the rain (under a small tent) for us to “recess” out of the garden and inside the venue! While on our honeymoon, Ray sent me an e-mail saying he noticed that we did not have a videographer so he set up his go pro on the tent and filmed the ceremony for us! How sweet! This is just one example of how they will go above and beyond to make sure your day is special. They are truly an exceptional group and definitely worth it if you are considering hiring a string quartet. Definitely go with Ray and Elegance String Quartet!

    Perfectly Amazing!

    Elegance String Quartet performed for my daughter's wedding ceremony at The Ballroom and the Ben in Philadelphia and also for their cocktail hour. Working with Ray was a pleasure, he and the team accommodated all our requests and made sure the event was exactly what the bride and groom wanted. The music was BEAUTIFUL and could not have been more perfect! The volume of their playlist was enormous and gave the bride and groom so many options. My daughter even requested an alternate song with some specific timing for when she walked down the aisle and Ray made sure that happened for her. Thank you so much Elegance! We hope to hear you play again sometime soon!

    Dream-like

    I am so happy that I booked Elegance String Quartet for my outdoor wedding in June. Everyone I spoke with from the company was pleasant, accommodating and warm. Ray Boccelli in particular worked with me to choose the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. This was kind of a daunting task since Elegance String Quartet has a huge selection of music to choose from. However, he made it very easy for me to narrow it down to create a beautiful set list. He even did some research to play a song that wasn’t included in their set list and played it during our recessional. Everyone at my wedding commented on the music and how it added such harmony to the day. I recommend choosing Elegance String Quartet for any upcoming event.

    Beautiful Music

    We hired Elegance String Quartet for our recent wedding at Morris Arboretum. Ray was very responsive via email and phone. The music was absolutely beautiful during the ceremony. We were particularly happy because they were able to play some of our favorite, less conventional, wedding songs. They were happy to play Jurassic Park for the recessional and it was delightful.

    Talented, Professional, and Responsive! They were the best!

    We hired Elegance String Quartet to play our ceremony music as well as our cocktail hour, and we are so glad we did!! They showed such professionalism throughout the planning process in regards to song selection and responsiveness. As the wedding approached, they did a great job of explaining what to expect. We also rented a microphone from them for our officiant and my husband which worked perfectly and sounded great.

    The timing and renditions of all the songs we had chosen were perfect. It’s very clear that they know what they are doing and was easy to feel confident in their abilities to make everything sound great. They were even willing to learn a new song for us as “a gift”!!

    We were really so impressed with everything, and if you are looking for ceremony or cocktail hour music, Elegance is a great choice! You won’t be disappointed.

    I hired Elegance String Quartet for my engagement in April and I could not be more thankful for this talented group of individuals. They went above and beyond to bring my vision to life.
    I wanted to have a combination of Bollywood, Disney-themed, Classics & POP songs throughout the event. I worked with Ray Bicolli (Music Director) throughout the entire process and he was nothing short of amazing.
    Although they had never played Bollywood songs before, The entire team learned all the songs I had asked for and executed it FLAWLESSLY. The best part was when Ray told me that they would be able to play the remixed version of Game of Thrones song that I had shared with him for my entrance! I still get the chills every time I watch the video. It truly made my day.
    Our guests and family members still can’t stop talking about how amazing the entertainment was throughout the event and all the credit goes to Elegance! They were so accommodating and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a live musical group. This team is truly so talented and would be the perfect addition to any event! I know I will definitely be hiring them again in the future. If you do....I guarantee you will not regret it!
    Thank you Elegance String Quartet for doing what you do and making our event so special!!!❤️

    Elegance Quartet was amazing! Their timing for our processional was perfect. During our cocktail hour, they played upbeat songs to keep the mood light and everyone seemed to enjoy their rendition of Sweet Child of Mine. Elegance Quartet was also very flexible, they worked with us to play music that was not in their catalog.

    A Beautiful Addition to our Ceremony

    Since I was a teenage girl, I have dreamed about my wedding day. I would have a ballgown, beautiful florals everywhere, a handsome husband to walk down the aisle to and beautiful string music. I'm so happy to say all of this came true on our wedding day - especially the strings. We booked the string trio from Elegance, and they made our planning easy from the start. Ray was very helpful with helping us choose songs and pick which songs to put where in the ceremony, and they played beautifully. We had many compliments on them, and people loved the fact that we used live music rather than recorded. It added such a romantic touch, and walking down the aisle felt how I always imagined it would. If you are on the fence about booking Elegance for live music, don't hesitate any longer!

    The Elegance Quartet was an amazing addition to our wedding day!
    Their repertoire was so vast that we were able to personalize our choices so that the music played was not only beautiful but also meaningful and special to us. (i.e. classical to movie themes)
    We had them play during the ceremony and cocktail hour - they were incredible!!

    Classy Sunday Morning Wedding Music

    I knew live music would be perfect for our Sunday morning brunch wedding. I did some research and came across Elegance String Quartet. They sounded beautiful and we loved that they can play such a variety of music. We had a mix of classic and modern music throughout our ceremony and cocktail hour. Our guests RAVED about them. They just could not stop watching and obsessing over them at cocktail hour. I wish we could have enjoyed the quartet more as most of our photos were taken during cocktail hour but I am so happy our guests got to enjoy. We coordinated the contract with Melanie and then planned the songs with Ray. To be honest, pick what you want to process and recess to but then let them play to the crowd for prelude and cocktail hour. They are the pros and know how to play to the crowd.

    Absolutely amazing!!

    Going with Elegance String Quartet was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day! Ray was great to work with, very easy going and always got back to me immediately. They made the ceremony and the cocktail hour such a memorable experience. Their overall performance was just perfect and we are still getting compliments from people (a month later) about how much they enjoyed the music!!
