Weddings

The Kairos String Quartet has played for hundreds of wedding ceremonies, and we are committed to making the music for your celebration everything you hope for!

We are available to consult with you throughout your planning process by phone and e-mail.  Please see our Repertoire page for a list of the variety of music we offer.

For your wedding ceremony, the Kairos String Quartet provides:

     Prelude (as guests arrive), usually starting 15 minutes before the ceremony time

     Special music for the seating of mothers, grandparents, other family

     Processional for attendants

     Processional for the bride

     All special music during the ceremony*

     Recessional

     Postlude (one selection)

*such as accompaniment of congregational singing, instrumental interlude between readings, accompaniment of vocal solos, music for the lighting of a unity candle, for giving flowers to parents, etc.


Please use our contact page to request a CD of our sample repertoire to inspire your ideas, which is mailed with a printed list of our complete repertoire.  

The quartet will arrive 30 minutes before the start time of the ceremony to set up. We will be available to rehearse with any vocalists or other musicians at that time.  If more rehearsal time is needed, there is a small additional fee, depending on the time required.  

We need a space approximately 9 feet by 9 feet in size, away from any foot traffic, and require 4 armless chairs.  We can provide our own music stands.

If your ceremony is planned to be outdoors, please let us know before the contract is drawn up.
