About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Musical Heart Strings is a professional string ensemble (or string ensemble with piano) founded by Kerry Borgen and Gretchen Egen, who have been performing together for over sixteen years. Possible ensemble configurations include string duo, trio, and quartet with the larger ensembles featuring a fuller, richer sound. We also have the unique ability to add piano/keyboard to any of these combinations. Our supreme ensemble is our string quartet, consisting of two violins, viola and cello. This offers the fullest sound that is classy and elegant with a touch of adventure to keep you wanting more. We can play acoustically or with amplification. We offer an extensive repertoire. Our list includes classical, jazz, contemporary pop, rock and roll and even some heavy metal. Influenced by the Vitamin String Quartet, we arrange most of the music ourselves, making them exclusive covers performed only by Musical Heart Strings. We can add foot percussion while we play our instruments to make our ensemble sound more like a 'band', especially perfect for receptions and parties. We are available for hire for any gathering: weddings, parties, memorials, funerals, corporate events, or even for serenading a romantic dinner for two or wedding proposal. Feel free to browse our site and listen to the sound bites for an idea of how we sound. If you wish to hear a piece that is not highlighted, we can record a sound bite on our list especially for you (at no charge). We also have liability insurance which is helpful as many vendors require this. If your venue requires that the vendors have a $1 million liability insurance policy, have no fear. We carry this insurance. We can be found on YouTube playing an elegant Pachelbel Canon. We also have over 30 birthday videos on YouTube where we merged the birthday song with favorite tunes. We can be hired to create these 'YouTune-O-Grams' for someone special. We love what we do and our goal is to make all of your dreams come true on your very special day. With Music in our Hearts, Kerry Borgen, violin Gretchen Egen, cello Megan Pokorney, viola Matt Smart, piano/keyboard

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on November 6, 2016From Sacramento, CA

These ladies are seriously talented. Our wedding would not be nearly as enjoyable without them. My wife and I highly recommend Musical Heart Strings!

WeddingReviewed on October 25, 2015From Sonoma, CA

Musical heart strings played as a strong trio for our wedding, and we couldn't be happier! It was very much "set it and forget it"... We told them a free songs we wanted, and gave them free reign for everything else... It was PERFECT!
