Can the quartet perform outdoors? Some of our most beautiful weddings have taken place outdoors. However, due to the delicate nature of string instruments, the quartet is only able to perform outside in dry weather when the temperature is above 55 degrees. If there is direct sun or rain, the quartet must be shaded. These precautions protect our instruments, and make sure they sound their best for your wedding.
How do you know when to start and stop playing? On the day of your wedding, we work closely with your officiant so that the quartet is perfectly coordinated with all of your important moments.
How far in advance should we book the quartet? As soon as you have a firm wedding date, send us an email or give us a call. The earlier you call us the more likely we are to have your date available.
Q. Will the musicians come to my rehearsal the day before? Because of our extensive experience with wedding ceremonies, we do not need to attend the wedding rehearsal. Our coordinator normally arrives early on your wedding day to be sure the last minute details are in place. If you do wish the musicians to attend the rehearsal, the same rate schedule for performances applies to the rehearsal as for the actual ceremony, with a 90 minute minimum. Most couples opt not to hire the musicians for the rehearsal, since this will generally double the price of your event.
Why hire Landolfi String Quartet and Ensemble? We are a professional ensemble with years of experience utilizing a pool of musicians so we can handle your wedding regardless of the availability of an individual musician. We love what we do and we are dedicated to doing our part to make your special event successful.
Do you play for events besides weddings?YES! We are available for your shower, bar/bat mitzvah, proposal, engagement party, cocktail party, birthday celebration, corporate event, holiday party, christening, baby naming, memorial service, religious service, and more!
