Strings For Your Heart

Based in Lake Forest Ca.

Strings For Your Heart is a traditional string quartet composed of two violins, viola, and cello. Since their inception over 20 years ago, Strings For Your Heart has added their unique sense of poise and passion to create elegant weddings and memorable occasions throughout Southern California.

What is a String Quartet, and Why Would I Want One? A string quartet consists of a pair of violins (Violin 1 and Violin 2), a viola, and a cello. These instruments roughly correspond to the soprano, alto, tenor and bass sections of a choir. After 1750, (Beginning with Haydn), composers wrote numerous compositions for this classical combination of instruments. When more sound was desired, additional players were added to each string part. An orchestra could be made with an addition of a double bass, brass, winds and/or percussion. Booking a string quartet for your wedding or special event adds a lovely touch of elegance and a sophistication that complements any theme without music so loud that it distracts from conversation. The string quartet can play indoors or outdoors. In addition, unlike a single instrument or singer, a quartet offers harmony and a blend of sounds with a range that far exceeds that of a human voice.

“The quartet added just the right touch of elegance to the reception, and they played so many different types of music too! I loved their ability to play the varied requests of the guests.”
– Mary Bennett

“I saw the quartet play at a party, and they were very pleasing to listen to. Professional in every detail, and took requests!”
– Kevin Campbell

“The quartet makes you feel relaxed. They take you to a higher plane. It is totally worth the money. Thank you”
– Bill Lashbrook

“Thank you so much for your help in making our wedding so beautiful. The quartet far exceeded our expectations, and we couldn't have been more pleased with your performance. It's been a pleasure working with you the past few months, and I hope our paths cross again soon. Thanks again.”
– Elizabeth Porreca
