I spoke to a couple different quartets before going with a friend. I can’t remember the names/contact info off the top of my head, but I can message you the info. Both were fairly reasonable in $ and seemed quite flexible.

We booked a string duo (cello and violin) that I contacted through the UM school of music.  They are very professional and also less expensive than many professional groups I found online.  I’ll check with them to see if they’d be willing to let me post their contact info, but in the meantime, if you’re interested, PM me. 🙂

We booked students from U of M too….we hired a celtic/bluegrass three piece.  Like Jessie516, I can check to see if they would want me to post their contact info, otherwise, pm me.

This is one of my most anticipated pieces….they’re terrific and I think they’ll bring a lot of fun to the event.

How would one go about contacting the U of M music school for musicians?  We are having a small wedding at a historic chapel in Northville and need some sort of music as the chapel does not have a sound system.

KaterTot214, what type of music/instrumentation are you looking for?  I might try contacting the School of Music office (http://www.music.umich.edu/#) and asking if they have a list of student ensembles.  They may also have a list of contact information by department (i.e. strings or trumpet, or whatever).  If you’re looking for strings, PM me and I can give you the contact info for our cellist who was fantastic.

Sure racwalt1, .  It really worked out great for us.  The students we hired were professional, sounded great and didn’t cost us an arm and a leg.  I think trying to hire student musicians is a great way to save money without sacrificing quality.

We ended up booking through Garza Violins (http://garzaviolins.com).  Ramon Garza is an absolute sweetheart!  While we only booked a violin duo for our tiny intimate ceremony, they also have a quartet available.  Contact Ramon and ask for their sample CD!
