Weddings & Events

Live music adds a touch of elegance to any event. The string quartet in particular provides warmth and beauty with delicate melodies and rich harmonies. It is the classic musical complement for a wedding ceremony or reception.

The Artful Noise String Quartet has played at hundreds of weddings in the Maine/New Hampshire/Massachusetts region. Our playlists are tailored for each couple, and we take the time to make sure your wedding music reflects who you truly are. From Pachelbel’s Canon and the traditional wedding marches to the Beatles and current songs on the radio, we do our best to accommodate requests.

Our typical wedding package includes approximately a half hour of prelude music before the ceremony. This beautiful music sets the atmosphere for a romantic wedding, and provides entertainment for the guests. We then play the piece or pieces selected for the processional, any incidental music during the ceremony, and the recessional. We follow the ceremony with a few minutes of joyful melodies to celebrate the new couple's union.

Our services extend to the cocktail hour and reception, when we can continue with classical repertoire or spice things up with romantic classics and jazz standards. In the months and days before the wedding, we are available for engagement parties and rehearsal dinners. Please contact Artful Noise to find out about availability for your wedding.
