About
We are String of Pearls Quartet out of College Park, MD. We'd love to make your event special. Your wedding day may be the most important day of your life, and our goal is to help make it as wonderful and memorable as possible. The classical group is all about our sound, and we do have many soundbites to choose from in our press kit, including not only classical selections, but also pop music arrangements. We play lots more than classical music, as you can see from our ever growing song list.

I do have a link to video performances of my jazz group, "Susan Jones Jazz Quartet"
or you can go to and go to the Millennium stage archives, you can punch in my name, Susan Jones, and see 3 different performances.
My jazz group is also available for hire. We can work as a violin/ guitar/ bass/ drum quartet, a trio of violin/guitar/bass, or as a violin and guitar duo. This link takes you to one of those performances.

My Mariachi trio is "Mariachi de los Compadres". We play authentic Mexican Mariachi music, as well as other Latin American Standards.

For world music, I play with the "Machaya Klezmer Band". (We play authentic Klezmer music (Eastern European Jewish Folk Music), and have served the Jewish community of the greater Washington DC area for over 20 years, playing a multitude of Jewish weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, as well as concerts.), the World Jam Club (selections for all over Latin America), and Tango Reo (tangos, milongas, and walses)

Whatever your musical needs are,I hope to have the opportunity to play for you.

I'm so happy we went with String of Pearls!! They did an absolutely amazing job. From our initial email to the end of our reception, Susan was available to discuss anything and to work with us to make sure our day went smoothly and worry free. I would recommend them to anyone!!

Susan was truly wonderful to work with---very professional, prompt in her responses, and so talented. She was able to create 4 whole new arrangements for us--adapting "What a Wonderful World," "Here Comes the Sun," "Don't Stop Believn," and "Call Me Maybe" to be instrumental. Even my guests commented on how nice the music (and fun) it was! On top of it, she's such an accomplished musician and a real great value when you compare all of the other musicians listed in GigMasters. Book her before she fills up!

I didn't get to personally meet the musicians on my wedding day but, their music was absolutely beautiful. According to my directors, they were on time and very professional. It was a very special touch to our romantic wedding. Susan was awesome during the planning process, answering all of the questions that I had. Thank you!!

The quartet was really phenomenal! I wish so much I had had more time to enjoy listening to them and thank them for what an incredible job they did, but I was a little busy. The guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about them and it added such class to our special day. Thank you!

THE SUSAN JONES JAZZ QUARTET PERFORMED AT OUR HOME FOR A WEDDING ENGAGEMENT / CHRISTMAS PARTY, AND THEY WERE FANTASTIC. THEY ARE VERY ACCOMPLISHED MUSICIANS AND THEY WERE THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE PARTY. BECAUSE WE WERE SO IMPRESSED, WE ARE GOING TO BOOK THEM FOR THE UPCOMING WEDDING. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM FOR ANY SOCIAL EVENT; YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.

We had a great experience working with String of Pearls. Susan was super easy to work with and provided great suggestions for the music selections. Her pricing is very reasonable. They arrived early on the day of the wedding and played beautifully!!! I am a huge fan of classical music and to have a string quartet play for my wedding ceremony was a dream come true. Susan and the other musicians from String of Pearls really made the ceremony special! They even stuck around after the ceremony and played for a little while as everyone transitioned into cocktail hour.

I can't speak enough to the great experience we had with String of Pearls. We hired a pianist for our ceremony through them and they were extremely responsive, well coordinated, accommodating with our song requests, and offered recommendations to help us fill out our service. I was so extremely pleased as a bride to have not had to worry about this extremely important element of our day. Our sincere thanks to Jim Levy, our pianist, and to Susan Jones, the String of Pearls coordinator.

My husband and I chose String of Pearls for our wedding. They were wonderful, and played all of our requested non-repertoire songs perfectly - even Metallica sounded great. As a trio (guitar, bass, violin), they played our ceremony and then the cocktail hour. Our guests loved the music, and it was wonderful to walk down the aisle with my dad to one of my favorite Beach Boys' songs. My husband and I were so pleased, and could not recommend Susan and her crew more. They were professional, helpful, and above all, wonderfully talented musicians. Thank you for making our wedding so memorable!
