Since the start of the new year, my brides and grooms have been reaching out to me all with the big question: "Can you play Bridgerton?"
Yes, yes, and absolutely yes! That's exactly what we do!
What made Bridgerton so much more exciting and unique was the music soundtrack: It was all performed by a real, professional string quartet: Vitamin String Quartet - an LA-based company that does arrangements of all modern pop hits.
We perform modern pop hits just like VSQ! It's our favorite thing to do and we have a huge library filled with everything you can imagine. Every single song in our music library is arranged and tailored especially for strings. That means you're getting a beautiful instrumental cover that truly compliments the original song and artist no matter which of our ensembles you choose. In our library, you can find:
Jazz standards and popular hits from 1930- 1950
La Vie En Rose, Fly Me to the Moon, Call Me Irresponsible, Bewitched
Disney favorites from across the ages
A Whole New World from Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Love is an Open Door from Frozen
At Last, Chapel of Love, Be My Baby by The Ronettes
How Deep is Your Love by The Bee Gees, ABBA
Classic rock from the 1960s - 1970s
The Beatles, The Beach Boys
Funk & Soul
Stevie Wonder, Ben E. King
Sweet Child O Mine, Don't Stop Believing
Broadway & Musical favorites
A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman, West Side Story
Britney Spears, Whitney Houston
Uptown Funk, All About that Bass, Marry You, A Thousand Years
Movie and TV Music
Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones
We love learning new music and expanding our repertoire, so we receive up to 50 new requests per season. Our library is always growing so fast that our website can't keep up! As professional musicians, we perform world-class symphonic and chamber music that is incredibly difficult and takes a lot of practice. (Have you ever played Mahler? That stuff is tricky!) So, when couples ask if we can learn a pop song, it's no trouble at all!

Which songs from Bridgerton can we have?
You can have anything, of course! Right now, we've added our most requested to our string quartet library:
Taylor Swift - Wildest Dreams
Ariana Grande - Thank U, Next
Maroon 5 - Girls Like You
Want more? Email Ariana with your request. We'll make it happen.
Which of your groups play pop?
All of our ensembles have some pop variety, but if you're specifically looking for that Bridgerton sound, you'll want our string quartet. It's the fullest sound and will be the most like those pop string arrangements you know and love from VSQ.
Our smaller groups have something up their sleeve too, so if a violin duet or string trio is more your style, we've got you covered. Check out each of the custom song libraries here.
Here's my cover of Strange by Celeste for Solo violin accompanied by string orchestra
Fun fact: It looks like I'm accompanied by 3 violins, but I'm actually accompanied by 3 violins and 3 violas. I just couldn't add all of them into the video without making a mess!
Here's our string quartet playing the timeless wedding favorite, "Can't Help Falling In Love"
Here's our string trio performing Don't Stop Believing to get the party started
