About
Hello! We're the Pierce Quartet. Although we're new to gigmasters we collectively have thirty years experience playing weddings and special events.

First Violinist Chia-Yin Ma has a master's degree in Violin Performance from the Peabody Conservatory . She has been performing with the Peabody Improvisation and Multimedia Ensemble since 2005. Her great love is jazz and new music--she arranged and recorded the strings sections for Kathy Watson's album entitled “Come to Me,” the jazz pianist Joel Holmes' album entitled “African Skies,” and also the saxophonist Russell Kirk for his first debut Album entitled “Black & White”.

Second Violinist Margot Bennett, a born and raised Jersey girl, grew up singing classical music with her church choir. While studying violin she acquired a deep love for the chromatic harmonies of composers ranging from Mozart to Rutter, with a particular interest in Requiems. Her work as a singer songwriter has been profoundly influenced by dark poetic singer songwriters such as Leonard Cohen and Laura Nyro.

Violist Kate Barmotina has a degree in Music Education from NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. She is a passionate devotee of new and experimental music as well as a longtime fan of Beethoven.

Cellist Lenna Pierce studied chamber music under the world famous Chiara Quartet, and was runner up in their 2008 "Play with the Chiaras" competition. Her second album as a singing cellist was named WFMU's new album of the week in 2015. She loves playing weddings; helping brides and grooms to realize their personal vision for their special day.

Punctual, professional, and elegant. I hired them to wait in a park where I would walk through and propose to my girlfriend and they were there waiting and playing to surprise her. They followed some pretty specific instructions perfectly and played amazingly, everything worked out according to plan and went great. They were accommodating, communicated really well, and performed terrifically.

Lenna from Pierce Quartet was incredible in her communications and professionalistm ahead of and during our wedding day. She was very responsive with her communications, and super helpful with providing advice on pieces that work with the ceremony. We also met once at our venue to do a walkthrough to further talk about my vision for our wedding day. On the day of, the musicians arrived an hour before to set up and practice, and were all very talented. They were organized and played beautifully during our ceremony and cocktail hour, and didn't need to seek any additional direction from us on this busy day. I would highly recommend Lenna and her team of musicians!
