Concerts and Events

Where music and imagination meet

Simple to grand, you’ll find 4VSQ engaged in the widest variety of performances — and willing to create a concert that’s perfect for what you’re looking.  Events where you kick back and relax, formal balls and soirées, dinners and cocktail hours, and every possible occasion in between, we help create the kind of events that stay with you long after the last note.

While we are classically trained, we also play many events that fall outside the orbit of Bach and Vivaldi.  Consider a concert that follows a particular mood, or a new take on Coldplay, Journey or the Beatles, or inventive jazz partnerships; we’ve played them all.  If you like, we can read the room and let the party simply happen.

For a little more intimate setting, consider an Up Close and Personal concert, where you help design the event.  We offer several variations, from premiering a new piece for an occasion, conversations around the music, engaging other leading artists or having you join us for a piece or two.

As you can tell, we like the play of playing, and make it our goal to be as flexible to what you’d like as possible.

How do I pick music?

We’ll help.  Music design is our forte.  By phone or email, we guide you to choosing music that reflects your event style.  Picking music for an event can be easy…look at our Featured Concerts or Theme Programs for ideas.  Talk to us about what you have in mind.  Or, describe the mood you want to set and we can read the room to create background music. Visit  our Listen and Download where you can access over 70 selections, including those on our Sampler CD.   Download selections from our website or Contact us to send you a sampler CD via U.S. Mail.  For live videos, visit our About Us pages.

A repertoire list is available on request.

Can I commission a piece of music for my event?

Yes.  We call it The Ultimate Gift…music written specifically for you.  Your event is already destined to be memorable – this can make it unique.   Contact us and we’ll be pleased to give you some options.

Do you play outdoors?

Yes, we do play outdoors.  We require a tent (a 10 x 10 canopy is suitable) or to be in a spot with significant shade and protected from water.  Direct sunlight on our instruments can easily cause the varnish to soften and permanently damage the instrument.  Rain or mist of any kind will also prevent us from performing.  In the spring and fall we suggest you have a heated enclosed space.  If the temperature falls below 65°, we will need to move inside.

Are you available to travel?

The quartet is available to travel.  We regularly play the upper midwest for concerts and events and have played more distant destinations as well.  Please contact us about travel fees for distances over 30 miles from downtown Minneapolis.

I’d like to book 4VSQ for my event. How do I have you hold a date?

Please call or Contact us with details, and our manager will be in touch. The date is confirmed and held once a signed contract and deposit are received.
