What is the difference between a string quartet and a string duet?

The string quartet consists of four string instruments; a first violin, a second violin, a viola and a cello.  The string quartet has a beautiful full sound with pitches ranging from the high, bright first violin notes, all the way to the low, rich cello sound.  The second violin and viola play harmony parts in the middle making a full string sound with many textures.  The string quartet is perfect for outdoor events, large weddings and events inside large spaces. 


The string duet consists of just two instruments, a violin and a cello.  On these musical arrangements, the cello plays the low bass line, but also plays some harmony parts while the violin carries the melody.  A duet is not as full sounding as the whole quartet, but is a quite beautiful pairing on its own.  The string duet is great for smaller wedding ceremonies, outdoor weddings that are in close quarters and indoor weddings in smaller spaces. 

Performance Details

Our needs: We require a chair for each musician.  If the event is outside, we require adequate shelter from rain or high winds.  All other materials are provided by the quartet.  Musicians will not perform outside in temperatures lower than 55 degrees or in hazardous weather elements including rain and high winds.  These temperatures and elements can harm our instruments.


Attire: Unless otherwise requested, musicians will dress in all black. 

 

Cancellation Policy: Cancellation of contract must be received, in writing, no less than thirty (30) days prior to contract starting date.  A less than thirty (30) day cancellation results in the client compensating the group with a severance payment (50% of the balance due). A $50.00 fee will be assessed for program changes requested later than two weeks prior to the event.
