About

Looking for a classy and romantic touch to your wedding? Our name is Grace Notes and we help make weddings come alive with live string music!

When we're really bringing it, there'll be four of us showing up as a quartet, but we also pair back to a trio and duo depending on your event needs. We specialize in arranging and performing custom renditions of modern pop songs but we mix it up with classical styles to bring each client's vision to life!

We're based Niagara but are frequently in Hamilton, Toronto, and surrounding areas.

So if having a party your guests rave about is a non-negotiable, and you love the sound of string instruments, then we should chat! Talk soon :)

    Perfection

    I am so, so happy that my fiancé and I chose Grace Notes to perform at our Wedding Ceremony. Leading up to our big day, they were so on the ball. Sending reminders, recommendations, and confirmations made it so, so easy to work with them. The day of, they floated in like magical fairies on time, played all our requested songs perfectly and floated out of there. We received so many compliments from our guests on how wonderful the music was. We kept our décor very simple, but because of their talent they created the ambience we dreamed of.

    The perfect addition to our perfect day!

    From very early on in my wedding planning I knew that I wanted to have string musicians play during my ceremony and cocktail hour, after seeing it at a wedding I worked as a photographer. It is my belief that the string music brings in a level of sophistication and class to any wedding - even if they are playing modern hits. I found out about Grace Notes Events through some googling for local string musicians in NOTL, and especially liked that they were fellow Brock University graduates.

    From my very first emails with Allison, I knew I had to have Grace Notes at my wedding. In addition to being passionate about what they do - the pricepoint was perfect!

    Admittedly I didnt get to chat with the girls on the day of the wedding, but the music they played was extraordinary. I'm still getting compliments from people about how classy it was and how great they were! Highly recommend!

    So Talented!

    Thank you so much!! Words can’t describe how beautiful the quartet sounded. It was the most perfect day and having Grace Notes there made it even more perfect. Our guests all commented on how great the music was and how professional you were. Allison was so accommodating to our requests for custom pieces. I almost cried when I heard them play my song to walk down the aisle to. I would recommend Grace Notes 1000%. You won’t regret it. They added such a classy, romantic vibe to our wedding.

    Alex, Stacey and Gracenotes

    From the onset of their wedding plans, Alex knew he wanted something uniquely special to musically accompany his bride's, Stacey's, walk down the aisle with her father, and as well, his and her recessional walk, as husband and wife. I, mother of the groom, Lu, offered to research what was available in Niagara on the Lake. Alex picked Gracenotes. We were struck by the youthfulness and poise of the lovely ladies in the ensemble, but more importantly , their extensive beautiful repertoire was to Alex and Stacey's taste.
    At the outside ceremony the string ensemble music was not over bearing. It was soft and subtle, and was beautifully carried by a light breeze over the blue sky and sun lit green grape vines. The musical prelude was lengthy and inviting, welcoming guests as they arrived to the pavilion -a memorable statement of elegance with natural beauty. All so very joyous.
    Throughout the planning Gracenotes was always professional and sensitive to the needs of Alex and Stacey. They were reliable and prompt to respond. Always reassuring.
    Thank you Gracenotes,
    from Alex, Stacey and Lu.
    I wish I could have sat and listened to you longer but the duties of photos and reception followed immediately after your postlude. Perhaps another time and place!

    Beautiful music and outstanding service

    My wife and I hired Grace and Allison for our wedding and from the start they were incredibly helpful and gave great suggestions. All my questions were answered right away and they were very easy to work with, being flexible and communicative throughout.

    During the wedding itself their music was outstanding. It was beautiful, subtle and they worked with the sequence of events from start to finish fluidly and with professionalism. When the start time of our ceremony was delayed a bit, they filled it in with appropriate and wonderfully played music without hesitation. I would without a doubt recommend them to anyone looking for outstanding string music for their wedding with fantastic support.
