About
Currently, we are Gigmaster's "2018 National Award" winner for their category of string quartet.
And in the greater Baltimore/Washington, DC area, we have been the #1-rated quartet at Gigmaster every month, now for over 50 months in a row.

Experience, talent, commitment, the personal touch - from Nancy and David Shavin.

Violin/violin duet, violin/viola duet, string trio (violin/viola/cello) or string quartet (two violins/viola/cello) - we bring to each job decades of experience. Classical, light classical and popular - you name it, we'll get it done. (Occasionally, others join us: singers, flutists, string bassists, etc.)

A bit of background: We've literally decades of experience in orchestras, including Atlanta, Washington, DC, and New York. We've played at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Constitution Hall and Wolf Trap. And, though this may only impress some of the older set out there (and perhaps scare some of the younger set!), we've performed with the likes of Vicki Carr, Wayne Newton, Bob Hope and Michael Jackson. But string quartets remain our passion.

This was our third wedding of three daughters and we had a string quartet for all three. The Leesburg String Ensemble was absolutely the best. They went out of their way to make sure the music was wonderful, even coming to the rehearsal to play. Their music made the wedding ceremony even more beautiful. Quite a few guests commented on the music. I can't recommend them enough.

Nancy and David were very nice and very easy to work with. They have a huge amount of music and were willing to learn anything we wanted. They were very professional, arrived early, and not once did I second guess my decision booking them. Very reasonably priced as well. I did a lot of research on quartets before booking them and they were fantastic.

Leesburg String Ensemble gave a PHENOMENAL performance for my father's funeral services. They were professional, knowledgeable and a pure joy. They performed mostly classical peices but they did an amazing rendition of Frank Sinatra's I Did It My Way which brought my daughter to tears. They also performed Lift Thine Eyes by Mendolsohn which brought tears to my eyes. Securing them to perform was one of the smartest decisions that I made for the funeral and they really made the day quite special and lovely. They are the BEST!!!!!

All members of the ensemble were extremely professional, courteous, and a pleasure to work with. They are very responsive and are very willing to work with you on song selections. I highly recommend them and plan to hire them again in the future. As for their musicianship, I was extremely impressed with their love and passionate for the music they so brilliantly create. Highly recommend.

Leesburg String Ensemble was wonderful! They accompanied our organist at St. John the Apostle Catholic Church in Leesburg, VA for our daughter's wedding, and they sounded terrific. We, and our guests, were very impressed. They were extremely easy to work with and made this aspect of wedding planning completely stress free. I highly recommend them!

Working with this fantastic group of professionals was the easiest part of our reception! They handled our requested playlist of songs from the 30s-60's with classical pieces mixed in beautifully. Many of our guests were pleasantly surprised to hear Love Me Tender and several other love songs played by the quartet. The performance was so wonderful I wish I had booked them for a longer time period! I was sad when the time ended. I recommend this group with all honesty as a great experience for any event although ours was a wedding reception. Very professional, accommodating and talented!! Thanks guys for making our day so much more than we could have expected!! Susan

Nancy & David were an absolute dream to deal with. Professional, engaging, accommodating and so willing to personalize the program for my daughters wedding at Lansdowne Resort and Spa. Additionally they have done many events there, so the coordination was flawless. We had them play at both the ceremony and cocktail hour which worked out perfectly! I would highly recommend them for your next event! Keep up the great work Nancy & David!

What a perfect addition to our wedding day. Leesburg String provided our ceremony music and music during our cocktail hour. They sounded so beautiful. Nancy and Dave worked with us every step of the way. Nancy got to know us and what type of music we liked, and they can play it all! We had everything from Motown to Coldplay. The Quartet complimented our wedding day very well. We would book again! Simply wonderful.

Very thankful for David and his team - they were professional, talented and flexible. We had trios at 3 campuses for our church's Christmas Eve services and every single performer was excellent. Wonderful!

Leesburg String Ensemble was fantastic! Nancy worked with us since the beginning to make sure all our music request were captured. The group arrived way ahead of time to set up. We received so many compliments from our guests and they requested that more music should be played. We originally booked Leesburg String Ensemble for three hours but the music played were so lovely that we asked if they could stay for additional hour and they were happy to do so. In conclusion, my wedding reception went very well and Leesburgn String Ensemble has a lot to do with it. They were very professional and committed to playing wonderful music. I will book them again 100%.
