Pecatonica String Quartet
About our Music
We pride ourselves on being able to delight audiences with our wide range of style and repertoire. From elegant classical compositions of Bach, Handel and Mozart to rockin’ Led Zepplin, Queen and Journey; you name it, we’ve got it. We play light jazz standards, classic oldies and many fun party hits of today. Do you love the Beatles, Coldplay, SIgur Ros, Jason, Mraz, Train, The Black Eyed Peas, Pharrell Williams, Edward Sharpe or John Legend? We can play it all! And if something isn’t on our extensive list, Chris Dozoryst (our violist) is an amazing arranger and can make your perfect song a string quartet reality.
Frequently Asked Questions
What parts of the ceremony do I need to pick out music for?
Prelude, Processional, Special music, Recessional, Postlude
Prelude: Music to welcome guests as they are being seated before the ceremony. Prelude generally begins 15 minutes before the ceremony. The quartet is happy to select these pieces when requested.
Processional (wedding party): Music for the wedding party to enter. (slower)
Processional (bride): Music for the bride to walk down the aisle. (slower)
Special music: Music that may be during the unity candle, the giving of roses to family members or for a moment to listen and reflect. Some brides opt for no additional music during the ceremony.
Recessional: Music for the wedding party to exit. (more joyous and up-beat)
Postlude: A continuation of joyous music as guests exit or are ushered out.
Having a Catholic wedding but not with the full mass?
The Responsorial psalm and Alleluia are in the quartet’s repertoire and we are happy to play it for those parts of the liturgy at no additional cost. If you’d like us to perform with a family member, friend or church cantor as the soloist there will be an additional $100 charge for the extra rehearsal.
