The Camerata String Quartet provided music for a reception at a Conference National State Legislatures held in the Wisconsin Historical Society's national historic landmark Beauxs Arts headquarters building. Their presence and musical acumen was a perfect fit for both our guests and the opulent marble-lines space. The music was refined, light, and deliciously sophisticated, adding an aspect of beauty and refinement to the festivities. I couldn't recommend them highly enough to anyone looking to bring a touch of class and conviviality to their event.                   June, 2019


The Camerata String Quartet was wonderful! My husband and I were blown away by how beautiful the music for our wedding ceremony was. Not only was the music incredible, but Leyla was a joy to work with. She was so helpful during the planning stages of the ceremony music and she worked well coordinating with our church music director. She understood our music vision and was incredibly professional in advocating for us when difficulties arose with the ceremony venue. Camerata Strings learned how to play an incredible version of "Rewrite the Stars" for our recessional song and it was one of the most special and personal touches of our wedding day! Thank you for sharing your beautiful music with us and being part of making our day perfect!

It has been a pleasure to work with you.  We are so happy that the Camerata String Quartet was able to be a part of our special day.  Thank you for all the time and effort you've put in to make our wedding ceremony and reception one we will remember and so many got to enjoy!

The Camerata String Quartet played for our wedding in 2014. As a former quartet violinist, I was intent on finding a group that could perform at a professional level, and they more than met my expectations. I had spent many years considering the ceremony music
for my wedding, and the quartet worked with me to customize the music and performed beautifully on the day.                                     Amber L.

The Camerata String Quartet was AMAZING. Their website was easy to navigate through and their business manager and violinist, Leyla, was great to work with. Leyla and the group played a special arrangement that we requested for the processional. Everything was mapped-out prior to the wedding day using forms that the quartet developed, which gave me confidence that we were all on the same page. They were on-time and delivered everything that they promised the day of our wedding. They played beautifully! I am so grateful to this talented group of musicians.

Thank you!!!!     Danica L. (Sept., 2017)

Camerata String Quartet was exceptionally helpful and understanding in organizing their contribution to my mother's memorial service. Their performance was outstanding....not only the amazing talent in the group, but the pieces they chose with our guidance and they played along with the organ spontaneously in a wonderful way. Many guests commented on how beautiful their performance was. The warm and caring way Leyla communicated under these circumstances was also so appreciated. Highly recommend this group for any special occasion!                Kristina H.

We loved having the Camerata Quartet at our wedding! The music was beautiful, and they were very accommodating...they allowed us to have a family member sing with them, making the day even more personal and special. I would definitely recommend them to anyone! Elyse Z, (Aug, 2017)

From start to finish, Camerata String Quartet could not have been better.  They were great to work with and were helpful in  every possible aspect of our music program----song selection, explaining what types of music worked best for the different times throughout the service, and buying sheet music and learning a new song for my daughter's wedding.  The song "I Choose You" has been a favorite for a long time and the beauty of the melody, beat and words were so touching.  It couldn't have been more beautiful.  Many of our guests commented on what a nice touch the string quartet added.  By far, the money spent on the quartet play were the best spent dollars out of everything we did for the wedding.  I would have them play again at any event hosted.  They are true PROFESSIONALS!!!!  Again, a huge thank you to all of them for the touch of elegance they gave to my daughter's wedding!!!!

We cannot thank Camerata Strings enough for the beautiful music on our wedding day!  We were so impressed with the songs and special arrangement!  You were incredible to work with--especially being out of state.  Thank you again!

We loved having you play for our daughter's wedding. You were wonderful and we had so many compliments. We also appreciated the prompt communication whenever we needed it. Jocelyn and Tony's special day was certainly more lovely because of you.          Jayne M. (April, 2017)

We host monthly house concerts at our River Arts on Water Gallery in Prairie du Sac and were fortunate to have Camerata Quartet perform for us in 2013.  The music was absolutely beautiful and they were such a delight to work with.  We would certainly have them back again and would highly recommend this quartet for any type of event.   Lindsey  G.J.

We recently had the pleasure of working with the Camerata String Quartet for our wedding. If you want consummate professionals that play at the highest level, these are the guys. Our event had a very complicated music schedule that included 46 different musicians. The quartet played on their own but also accommodated a special request to accompany a 6-piece core ensemble which included them learning a couple tunes for the event. They are a delight to listen to and just as good at the business side by making everything easy for you. If there were a sixth star, I'd leave it!                           Clay K., Madison (August, 2018)
