Congratulations to prize winner Monica Adwani! Thank you everyone who entered our 2019 giveaway!

Unforgettable live music specially tailored for your event

The Blackstone Valley String Quartet was extremely accommodating and a pleasure to work with. They added the touch of class we wanted for our event. Due to our needs, we were also able to only reserve 2 of the 4 quartet, which we were very pleased with however, after their service we wished we had booked the entire quartet! Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Why Hire the BVQ?

Many members of the Blackstone Valley String Quartet & Ensembles grew up together playing in the Whitinsville Christian School strings program. They developed a love for music and sharing that gift with others over years of performing and learning together and feel blessed to be able to continue to share this passion!

Each of the ensemble members have collaborated with members of the quartet over the years in some capacity. All of the members of the BVQ & Ensembles has a passion for making music for all different occasions and areas of life. 

We all absolutely love bringing the gift of music to the New England area. Your event is just as important to us as the last! We can accommodate just about any song request or any style of music! Please don't hesitate to ask!

My daughter was married in Newport, RI on the water in an August wedding. I wanted a violin trio to play outdoors before the ceremony while guests arrived to take their seats, for the processional and then the recessional. I went through Gigmasters and after emailing and talking with Brittany, I knew she would be perfect. Brittany suggested her quartet which I decided to go with instead of the trio and I am so happy I did. The girls showed up on time and played beautifully. A bunch of the guests complimented the music and how beautiful everything sounded and how it lent an elegance to the wedding. Brittany was very easy to work with, she was polite and very accommodating with times and music choices. There are videos of the quartet playing on their website which demonstrates their wonderful talent, so you know what to look forward to. I would definitely hire Brittany again if I have another event in the future and will also recommend to any friends that are in need of string musicians.
