About

What type of entertainment options do you offer?

LSQ offers musical entertainment over a variety of genres. With a repertoire of over 1,000 titles, we have music to suit everyone’s taste. We perform classical, jazz, blues, dance (waltz, tango, rhumba, and more), pop, rock, movie soundtracks, religious, top 40 hits, ballads, country, indie, folk…you name it, we play it! Talk to us about how we approach genres like these which are not traditionally associated with a classical string quartet, and how you can use music to help structure your day and reflect the ambience/atmosphere of your unique group of guests.

How many various people do you send out on location? Are they all employed through your company?

We typically perform as a quartet, so four of us are with you on the day. However, we do offer to perform in smaller ensembles to suit more intimate spaces or smaller budgets. We can also accommodate requests for other instrumentalists (piano, harp, trumpet, organ, etc.) or larger ensembles. The players proudly representing Loring String Quartet all perform to the highest standard that has made us the most in-demand string quartet in Minnesota.

What type of attire is worn?

Whatever you like! Our standard dress code is all black, but we can tailor our attire to match the formality or informality of your wedding with a variety of clothing options. Gents in tuxedos for your blacktie wedding in the hotel ballroom? Ladies in summer dresses for the Sunday afternoon wedding in the park? As with our music choices, we want to reflect the atmosphere you envisage for your wedding. And remember: we may be in your wedding photos forever, so don’t hesitate to ask us about options!

What are your costs for the services provided?

Our costs are all based on time. How long are we performing for? If your venue is outside the Twin Cities, how long will it take to travel to your location? Our pricing structure is very straightforward with no hidden extras to surprise you at the last minute. Most musicians charge for any piece of music that’s outside of their current repertoire list, but with a library as large as ours, there is not much music we don’t already know! Call today for specific information about cost.

Is there a list of songs to choose from?

Yes. Our helpful Ceremony Planner is a great starting point with ideas for every part of your ceremony. Most couples then choose other selections from our list of most popular repertoire, containing over 500 titles. If you’re still not finding that perfect piece of music, we can delve into the hundreds of other titles that are perhaps less familiar and we’re sure to find what you’re looking for.

Check out the video on our listing to hear some different styles of music we play. You’ll hear snippets of classical, pop, and movie music. We are an acoustic string quartet, so we can’t promise to sound exactly like your favorite pop/rock group, but we think you’ll love our unique take on the 100s of covers we play.

What is your philosophy towards weddings?

Your wedding is an expression of who you are as a couple. Just as the dress, venue, and table centerpieces you choose reflect your own personality and taste, your music choices do the same. Choose music that you enjoy listening to, or songs that are particularly meaningful to you. We can advise and guide you toward certain choices if you need our help, but we want to play the music you want to hear. So let’s design your music package to be the backing track to the best day of your life!

Is there anything else you would like me to know?

We receive bookings anywhere from 18 months out to 2 weeks ahead. We typically perform for multiple weddings every weekend during late Spring, Summer, and all of Fall, so calling us early helps to secure your date on our calendar. A phone call is the easiest way for us to answer questions, so that if one answer leads to another question we can give you all the information you need right away. Although we’re new to MN Bride, we have been performing in the Twin Cities for over a decade, so check the web for dozens of customer reviews, all glowing 5-star recommendations! We look forward to performing for you soon…!
