The Magnolia String Quartet can be heard performing a track on singer Caleb Moore's album, available on iTunes! The quartet recorded a track on the song "Lay Me Down" with Caleb at Syracuse's Subcat Studios. Please visit Caleb's website at www.calebmooremusic.com or his Youtube channel to hear this talented young singer.
In addition to a full quartet, string trios or smaller groups are a possibility to fit your budget. Our quartet is known for accommodating special music requests outside of our standard repertoire, so please contact us with any questions concerning music selection.
"Magnolia String Quartet did a phenomenal job at our wedding. They were incredible and easy to work with. They were even willing to play music that was not in their repertoire, that fit our movie theme. On the actual day they performed in less than ideal cold weather conditions, which is very appreciated. We had a ton of compliments on their performance."
