About
La Bella Musica is one of the most sought after string ensembles in the southern New England area with large and extremely diverse repertoire for all ensembles! We can provide string duos, trios and quartets in a variety of combinations for weddings, concerts, and other special occasions. Emily and Morgan are the co-managers of the group and they rotate players (not all listed above) based on availability and instrumentation needed.

** Become a fan of us on Facebook to keep up-to-date with our events, interact with us, let us know of any music requests you think would be unexpected but totally awesome if played by a string group, and so much more!

PLEASE NOTE: We have a large number of experienced musicians who join us so we have the ability to split the group in two (if the number of musicians allowed for it) in order to accommodate for up to two events at the same time. Majority of correspondences are done through Emily but are passed onto Morgan if a double booking occurs. There will always be a co-manager present at each gig La Bella Musica is hired for.

We play the standard classical pieces but pride ourselves in our extensive non-classical list. We have oldies (such as "Hello, My Baby!," "Can't Help Falling in Love," "In the Good Old Summertime" and "Glow Worm"), swing (i.e. "In the Mood," "It Don't Mean a Thing") as well as Today's pop songs (i.e. "A Thousand Years," "Beautiful Girls," and "Paparazzi").

Working with Emily was a pleasure. She accommodated our last minute request to play at our wedding in Boston. She was easy to work with, replied to emails promptly and was so helpful with song suggestions. Though my husband and I didn't actually meet her at the wedding, we could obviously hear the music-it was amazing. So many guests complimented us on the choice throughout the night. Thank you for everything!

La Bella played the ceremony for our daughter's wedding on July 28. The garden setting was perfect for the string quartet and they sounded amazing! Throughout the entire planning process of selecting the music for the wedding Emily Chen was very helpful. She immediately responded to every email and gave great advice. Listening to the beautiful music as we all made our entrance, especially as our daughter walked down the aisle to Canon in D had me choked up with emotion, it was so beautiful. We received many compliments and can't say enough about how pleased we are to have chosen this most talented group. I would highly recommend them for any formal occasion.

They were early to the ceremony, we had great communications, and even when I was unsure about picking material, they helped me every step of the way. They even helped me arrange a piece I wrote and stayed patient with me as I revised the piece a few times. I had many people tell me that they were absolutely wonderful. Highly, highly recommended, and I will definitely go to them first for my next function!! Thanks again La Bella Musica!!

La Bella did an amazing job providing music for our wedding ceremony. We picked mainly songs by well known artists (The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Adele) and they performed it beautifully! We would 100% recommend La Bella for a wedding or any other type of event. They were very easy to work with and we got exactly what we asked for!!!

We had La Bella Musica for our wedding ceremony and the cocktail hour immediately following. We hired a trio (Lydia Lis - violin, Lauren Gage - viola and Morgan Santos on cello). They were so so great and I am so glad that we were able to hire them. They were a pleasure to work with and the music was absolutely beautiful. It really helped to create the classic feeling we were going for. I highly highly recommend them, perfect for a wedding ceremony.

La Bella Musica was awesome, and my contact, Emily Chen, was fantastic. They learned two songs for me - one was very special, as they accompanied me when I sang to my husband at the ceremony. It was perfect. I would absolutely recommend La Bella Musica to anyone and everyone.

La Bella Musica performed at my May 16th wedding at Belle Mer, and they were great! Guests said the prelude music was beautiful. I walked into Canon in D it sounded perfect -- apparently this song in particular had my mom in tears. During the cocktail hour they played a mix of both classical and contemporary tunes and it set a very elegant feel. I worked mostly with Emily Chen and she always responded to my emails quickly and was helpful in suggesting classical songs for various parts of the ceremony. Overall they are great musicians and very professional and I would highly recommend them!
