My husband and I recently got married in an outside venue. We knew that we wanted a string quartet for our ceremony. I came to wedding wire to look for local musicians and came across Quartet442. Their website was great! I loved being able to hear them play right on the site. I emailed Elise and received a prompt response. Throughout the process Elise was incredible, she helped us pick our music and was open to music outside of their original repertoire. The day of, the music was everything I had hoped for and more. Elise and Quartet442 truly exceeded our expectations. The music was beautiful and emotional. I will always remember walking down the aisle to their rendition of canon in d with my father and I thank them for that memory.Sent on 07/26/2016

Set the tone for the whole event.
They were prompt and professional. Elise was great to communicate with in email and on the phone! The music was beautiful during the ceremony and cocktail hour. I would HIGHLY recommend this quartet! It takes the event to the next level.Sent on 08/23/2019

Elise and company were so professional and kind. They have many options for your ceremony music to create an atmosphere that is welcoming and made for your style of wedding. It was easy to work with them and they are very timely with answering questions. I highly recommend using them for any event you need beautiful music for!Sent on 05/14/2019

Wow!! Nothing but great things to say! The quartet arrived early and started playing early due to guests arrival time. Everyone loved the live music and how amazing they sounded!! In all seriousness, my guests raved about the music and how great it was opposed to a recording or a single musician. Elise, was great to work with and made sure every detail was perfect. Highly would recommend for anyone looking for a string quartet!!Sent on 08/07/2018

Elise and the rest of her quartet made our day so special. We are both big classical music fans and amateur classical music musicians (the bride having played in a few quartet weddings herself) so were very picky about who would be playing and what they would play. We gave them some very challenging selections , which they played absolutely beautifully, quite literally bringing people to tears. (One of our guests told me that specifically....)Sent on 08/03/2018
I also commissioned them to arrange a somewhat obscure indie rock song for our recessional--the original arrangement of which includes some strange instrumentation to wrestle with, including a horn section and a saw.... Not only did they do an absolutely perfect job of it, but they did so in a way that captured the uplifting mood that we wanted for our recessional, which was not an easy task!
Throughout the whole process, Elise was communicative, engaged, and enthusiastic and was able to give us expert guidance in our selections and on timing.
These guys are all incredibly talented and unbelievably reasonably priced and they also are capable of arranging just about anything in a way that can transform the entire day.
We were impressed and are so grateful.

Quartet442 did a great job at our wedding ceremony. They were the perfect addition and made the ceremony extra special. We knew we didn't think we'd get the same effect with a DJ as we would with the quartet. We were right! Everyone was very impressed and we were pleased. Highly recommended!Sent on 03/09/2018

My wife and I got married in October of 2017. We reached out to quartet442 for our ceremony music, as I have had the pleasure of listening to them on a few different occasions. Elise was very responsive getting in touch with me just a few short hours after my email. About a month before the wedding, Elise, my wife, and I were able to sit down and get the details nailed out. When the day came they were amazing! On time, well dressed, and sounded amazing. I highly recommend Quartet442 for any of your music needs! You will not be disappointed!Sent on 01/06/2018

I literally could not have been happier with what Elise and her fellow musicians did for us. We had multiple special song requests and they accommodated everything we asked for perfectly. They played prior to the ceremony, our entrance and exit music, during cocktail hour, and a special entrance into the reception. Everything went off without a hitch - in fact, I didn't even speak to them on the day of the wedding because it was so seamless, it just went like clockwork. They also traveled to Buffalo from Rochester for the wedding, which was great and much appreciated. I would 100% recommend their services, you will not be disappointed!Sent on 11/19/2017

We hired quartet442 to play for my son's wedding this past September, and they were top-notch all the way!Sent on 01/06/2018
I'm a retired music teacher, so could tell that they really knew what they were doing--from writing a special arrangement for me to rehearsing with me the day before the wedding. Elise Hughey went out of her way to make everything work smoothly.

Quartet442 was amazing! We hired them to perform our ceremony music and found them to be very professional and accommodating! Elise was so helpful via email and over the phone and we felt very confident that we were in good hands. Our guests loved the live music, and our custom song choices made it all the more special. Quartet 442 added a little formality and classiness to our outdoor wedding and we couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you!!Sent on 01/09/2018

They arranged and learned a song I’d been dying to walk down the aisle to and it was absolutely perfect, I couldn’t have asked for a better group.Sent on 01/05/2018

Elyse and quartet442 played for our Aug. 2017 wedding ceremony. They were incredible and definitely set the mood and ambiance we were looking to achieve. Our wedding felt romantic and intimate thanks to the custom playlist that Elyse helped us create. We found communication to be easy, the cost to be more than reasonable and all the quartet members to be professional and talented.Sent on 01/18/2018
We would use quartet442 again for our entertainment needs in the future.

Quartet 442 was an awesome addition to my son's wedding! They played before the ceremony, for the ceremony, and for 2 hours during the cocktail hour. I can't tell you how many compliments I got about their music. You would think a string quartet would only play classical music but they have a large variety of song choices that are popular today. Elise was very easy to work with and supplied a list of several music choices for the bride and groom to choose from. They arrived on time and professionally dressed. They really were one of my favorite parts of the whole day and you cannot go wrong by hiring them for your special day either!Sent on 01/06/2018

Quartet 442 made our wedding ceremony sound amazing! When I approached them with song requests, they not only agreed, but they also made their own arrangements! Their timing during the ceremony was spot-on. We could not have asked for a better ensemble to play at our wedding. My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone.Sent on 08/11/2017

As a bride who planned the wedding from across the state - quartet442 was so easy to work with and plan our ceremony and cocktail hour. There were no issues at all - they set up quickly, played beautifully, and were so professional. We had quite a few musical guests and heard great comments from everyone. I would definitely recommend using them for any special eventSent on 01/14/2018

Quartet 442 were amazing musicians to work with! I knew I always wanted violins playing at my wedding ceremony and they provided current - up to date selections that sounded incredible ! They were easy to contact and always got back to us in a very timely manner. I even had guests asking me for their contact information after the ceremony !Sent on 12/08/2016
I highly recommend them to any bride who has the same dream that I did.

If you're looking for a special addition to your ceremony or reception - consider quartet442. Not only is Elise SUPER easy to work with - but their music is amazing and their talent is top notch. When it came time for me to pick the vendors for my wedding - it was critical to me that I trusted each of them. I needed to feel confident that they would show up on time, assist me in the process (suggestions on music selection, payment time line, etc) and knock it out of the park. They delivered in all areas. I would choose them all over again!Sent on 10/25/2016

Elise was really responsive and easy to communicate with. The process of booking to performance was seamless. And everyone enjoyed the music - it was a nice touch to have them play classical music in the background. They also play modern cover songs which is fun. Clearly, all of them are skilled musicians too - something important for my very musical family!! I recommend this quartet for your event or wedding in the Finger Lakes area!Sent on 10/25/2016

I was so excited to have quartet442 play at my wedding. I had so many people come up to me ask who they were and what songs they played. Elise the manager was very nice and accommodating. There is so much to do in planning a wedding she made it very easy for me. Thank you so much quartet442!Sent on 10/24/2016

Quartet442 truly made our day one of a kind! They went out of their way to make sure that we were happy and everything went as smoothly as possible. Even a special song that I requested was able to be played! The music was breathtaking and completely made the wedding ceremony unique. I would recommend booking Quartet442 for any special event in your life. They made my wedding day perfect!Sent on 10/24/2016
