Atlanta String quartet with cello in the backgro

Make your occasion memorable with a Washington DC & Baltimore wedding band

Looking to hire a string quartet for your event? You’ve come to the right place!

 

Our music ensembles are based locally, so our musicians know and love DC and Baltimore as much as you do. As cities with lively, diverse music scenes and people who are all about having a good time, we know how to set the tone to make sure you and your guests have the best experience possible. In fact, clients have rated us as “excellent” 99% of the time—something we’re incredibly proud of.

 

Whether your event is in the city or the suburbs, we’d love to be part of your milestone moment. We’ve been thrilled to play in venues all throughout DC and Baltimore, such as the House of Sweden in Georgetown, Cedar Knoll Restaurant in Alexandria, VA, and The Castle at Maryvale  in Brooklandville, MD, to name a few. Planning something a little farther away? From Gaithersburg to Annaoplis to Fredericksburg, we’d be delighted to be part of your wedding or special occasion in the surrounding DC and Baltimore metro areas.

Highly Experienced Musicians

Innocenti Strings music ensembles include some of the most trusted and well-respected live musicians in the Baltimore-DC area. Beyond that, our mission is to make the whole experience as easy and enjoyable as possible for you, so we’ll help you with everything from choosing your ensemble to selecting your music to setting everything up on the day of your event.

The Music You Know and Love

Whether you’re looking for the songs you love to sing along to or the ones you’ve always dreamed of walking down the aisle to, we can play them all! With an extensive, genre-spanning music library, we can perform everything from modern pop hits to classical favorites.

Weddings and Special Events

Planning a wedding in Washington DC or Baltimore? We’d be honored to be part of your big day! We can also play for any and every kind of special event, including anniversaries, birthday parties, corporate functions, holiday gatherings, and bar and bat mitzvahs. See our Wedding and Special Events pages to learn more.

Details and Travel

The Sustainable Choice

Sustainability is everything these days, and that applies to music, too. Our string ensembles are based locally, so in most instances, our musicians won’t have to travel far. In addition, our instruments are made of real wood so they create rich, beautiful sounds acoustically, without having to use power. That means overall, we’ll have very little environmental impact on your big day.

Where We’ll Travel

Wondering how far we’ll travel? If the destination is less than 25 miles away from Washington DC or Baltimore, based on which city is closest to the event (as determined by Google Maps), it will be free. For destinations 25+ miles away, there will be a small fee per musician.

 

Though typically the farthest we’ll travel is 2-3 hours each way in a day, we have an incredible network of musicians in cities across the country, so we can help connect you with one of our ensembles that’s closest to you.

Hear From Our Clients

“They were easy to work with and even had experienced musicians on hand to help give advice for certain aspects of the ceremony. It was beautiful and they had all songs I was looking for.”

“We were thrilled with the music at the ceremony. They were able to play fun music while folks entered the ceremony, and they played all of the traditional music for our Catholic ceremony. They make picking music extremely easy, and they were prompt, professional and played gorgeous music. Highly recommend!”

“We worked with Pascal and Rafael of the Washington, DC Innocenti Strings group and could not have been more pleased. We had the string trio play at our Wedding Mass and then for the first hour of our reception. The music was truly beautiful and the guests really enjoyed it. We are very pleased with our choice! We highly recommend Innocenti Strings!”

“As we had a brunch wedding, we booked Innocenti Strings for our ceremony and reception music. They added a level of class to the wedding and encouraged people to get up and talk—there was no need to yell over the music. Every guest said that the string trio was fantastic and I couldn't agree more! Very helpful and accommodating to our requests and very responsive!”
