About
Founded in 2020, Nova Strings is a group of professional musicians who collaborate to provide music for weddings and special events. We are a customer oriented-company and work hard to serve our clients, from the first contact (we like a good old-fashioned phone call), to the last note we play.

Founder and owner, Eli Thomas (who's video is above, playing with his wife, Emily), is equally passionate about management and logistics as he is about music. When it comes to weddings, you want someone who is a nerd about organization, because more often than not that makes all the difference on the big day! You've heard the stories: the groom forgot his ring, the limo is an hour late, a storm shows up on what was supposed to be a beautiful sunny day…you want someone who is prepared and can change plans on a dime!

We enjoy what we do, and if we have fun doing it, we know you will enjoy hearing us! We play all the good traditional stuff, have a growing repertoire of pop music, and are always on the lookout for a good arrangement! (We have a downright beautiful version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, courtesy of a good friend from New Zealand!).

We hired NOVA Strings for our daughter’s pared down wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic. Considering the last minute arrangements (wedding moved from Charleston, SC in November to DC in July), Eli from NOVA Strings was a pleasure to work with. Communication was excellent and all the accommodations our daughter requested were met with a “yes we can!” attitude. The day was perfect with NOVA Strings showing up on time and ready to play. They played beautifully and added just the right atmosphere to the wedding ceremony. I can personally highly recommend NOVA Strings for your next event!

NOVA Strings was great. They provided a lovely performance that exceeded our expectations. It was great to enjoy the arts, stay safe, and hear clapping once again.
