What sets us apart?
Quality you can count on
When choosing musicians for your special day, quality matters. The musicians seen and heard on this website have been playing together for years and will be the ones playing at your wedding. All Sage Artists are accomplished professional musicians and we take pride in the high quality of their musicianship. You will hear the difference.
The perfect playlist
Sage String Quartet has a library over over 300 musical selections in all styles. We are constantly expanding our repertoire. If you request a piece that we don’t have yet, we’ll add it to our library at no cost to you. If your special piece is not published for string quartet we can have our staff arranger arrange it for an additional fee.
Exceptional customer service
When you contact the Sage String Quartet, whether by phone or email, you will be working directly with it’s founding member, Kyung LeBlanc. All emails will be returned promtly. She will put your mind at ease with expert musical advice and attention to detail.
Rain or Shine Guarantee
Because of the delicate nature of our string instruments, when performing outdoors all string quartets need protection from direct sunlight and rain. If your outdoor venue does not offer this assurance, the SSQ can bring our own professional 10 by 10 tent.
