What we do to provide the best music for your wedding, ceremony, or event
Forest City Chambers is dedicated to giving a superb musical performance at your ceremony, party, or event. We currently specialize in string based ensembles, mainly quartets and trios. Soon we will be able to offer more ensembles that include piano and guitar in duo, solo, or quintet.
Our ensemble has decades of experience playing in small and large chamber groups. We are flexible and willing to accommodate the requirements of your event whether it is formal or casual. Our experience and repertoire encompasses classical, romantic, jazz, contemporary, and popular music.
So what is a string quartet? Wikipedia defines it as "a musical ensemble of four string players – two violin players, a violist and a cellist." The sound of a string quartet has a great dynamic and expressive range; it can be very loud or very soft, very celebratory or very moody and atmospheric. This combination of instruments has become a mainstay in wedding ceremonies, cocktail parties, or any event that needs a little bit of classical music.
A string quartet is able to easily play in a variety of atmospheres, but we do require a few things in order for us to give you the best performance possible. If your event is outdoors, we will be happy to perform there! An outdoor venue can be beautiful, and our music fits in splendidly in the open air. This also means that we will require a certain amount of shelter. Our instruments are somewhat fragile, and the elements can damage them if they are exposed.
Forest City Chambers' available repertoire is constantly growing! If you would like to hear music not on our list, we will be happy to obtain it to perform at your event. We love performing new music, and while most sheet music can be easily found online for purchase (sometimes for free!), sometimes this isn't the case. If a new arrangement must be made by Forest City Chambers, a fee will accompany the service. These issues are rare and will be discussed on a case-by-case basis.
If all of this sounds good to you, then you should definitely contact us by phone at 216.202.4552 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and book us! We do ask that booking be scheduled at least 30 days in advance of your event. We look forward to playing for you!
