I've never hired a string quartet before! What do I need to know?

SimplyStrings can consist of anything from a string duo to a string quintet, depending on the size of your event and your budget. When using our services, you can be sure that you are in safe hands. Whether you have hired our professional Cape Town musicians for your wedding, function or corporate event, you can be sure that our live entertainment will add that touch of class to your event.

I know very little about Classical Music? What can I expect?

Our experienced musicians will ensure that you and your guests enjoy music that compliments your function, wedding or corporate event. Our Classical string players will provide the live entertainment to suit your preferences and could include anything from more formal Classical options such as Viennese Waltzes to Gypsy music, Tangos, Movie Themes, Love Songs and your favourite Broadway Tunes. For more details, check out the music.

What would be the ideal music scenario for my wedding?

We find that around a half hour of Classical music prior to the wedding ceremony really does help to relax your guests, and prepare everyone for the beautiful moment that they are about to witness. Then we will perform key numbers during your ceremony such as entrance music for the bride, something tranquil and serene for the signing of the register, and then the exit music for the bride and groom - typically one of the famous wedding marches but that is entirely up to you. Some clients prefer to choose a piece that has specific meaning to their relationship. We can also perform hymns during the ceremony and after we can either continue with well-known classical pieces or lighter, more contemporary options. Feel free to listen to some sound clips.

Have you ever performed in unusual or exotic locations?

We certainly have! Everywhere from a beach to a forest to a boat! Even on top of Table Mountain!

My life partner and I are planning on getting married/having a civil union. Have you ever played for a same-sex union?

We at SimplyStrings are only too happy to make your special day that much more special. Please feel free to contact us to discuss any particular wishes you might have and we will endeavour to cater to your needs.
