As you’d expect, the Mahr String Quartet has traditional wedding repertoire and classical favorites. We also have a nice list of tunes arranged for Voice + String Quartet Accompaniment (rehearsal fee may apply.)

We’ve got you covered on crowd-pleasing background music: Classical, Tangos, Waltzes, Movies, Pops, Latin, Musicals, and of course…plenty of Holiday tunes for your office party!

But our most popular requests come from our large list of today’s favorites for the modern/non-traditional couple or event. (We love this stuff!)

Sample Recordings

Need a vocalist? We LOVE working with Karlyn Music! Karly not only has a beautiful voice, but can also add in piano for a stunning layered sound. Her musical arrangements make your ceremony unique. Karly is very well-versed in the Catholic Liturgy and personally guides couples through choosing the perfect songs to make your service both prayerful and memorable.

Here are some samples of Karly + the Mahr String Quartet. For more information + booking please visit her website
