The Alpine String Quartet has played throughout the Twin Cities for several years. Our musicians have a wealth of experience performing in the area’s professional ensembles, including the Minnesota Orchestra, the Minnesota Opera, The Guthrie, Children’s Theater, Vocalessence, and many more. We have a wide repertoire of classical favorites, popular music, jazz, ragtime, and Broadway musicals. Consider us for your cocktail hour, dinner party, wedding ceremony, reception, or special event!
How can I hire your group to play for my event?
Please fill out the form below, or contact us at email@example.com to check on date availability. Once the date is set, we will send you all the necessary paperwork and start the planning process.
How will your quartet fit into our ceremony?
The quartet will provide music before, during, and after your ceremony. Prelude music is
usually 20 minutes in length as guests are arriving. During the wedding ceremony, we
can play musical selections of your choice while the families of the bride and groom are
seated, as bridesmaids process down the aisle, and as the bride processes. Other
ceremonial music might include a piece during the lighting of a unity candle, or interlude
music special to the bride and groom. We will play music as the bridal party
exits, and then postlude music following the ceremony as your guests depart.
I am not sure of what music I would like for my wedding? Can you help me choose?
Absolutely. We will be happy to provide you with a CD of our music, which contains
selections appropriate for your wedding. Some musical selections are available on our website.
Do you play music that is not on your “Repertoire” list?
Yes. We ask that you make your request for special music at least one month in advance of
your event date so that we can acquire, arrange, and rehearse your selection. There is an
additional fee for this service.
Is it possible for me to come and hear your group?
Of course! We are a regularly rehearsing group, and we would be happy to have you come
to one of our rehearsals.
Can you play at an outdoor event?
Yes we can, but we must make a few important requests:
Due to the fragile nature of our instruments, we need to have some sort of
protection from direct sunlight, be it a small tent (minimum: 10’ by 10’) or shade
from tree coverage.
Our instruments cannot tolerate extremes in temperature (<60 or >95 degrees) or rain
precipitation. If these conditions occur, we will need to relocate indoors.
Will your quartet perform outside of the metropolitan area?
Yes. We will gladly travel up to 30 miles from downtown Minneapolis for no extra charge.
An additional fee is required for events beyond 30 miles.
“The music you provided for our daughter’s wedding ceremony and reception was perfectly gorgeous. You created an elegant and romantic atmosphere that was at once relaxing and tantalizing. Was that really The Beatles followed by Rachmaninov? Genius.Thank you for helping create some beautiful memories.”
-Sue and Tom K.
“…You did an absolutely fantastic job. Your
talented group of musicians exceeded my
expectations in every way and played
beautifully. The recessional was perfect. I
would not hesitate to recommend your group
in the future.”
