The Montebello String Quartet is composed of two violins, viola and cello and provides a rich string sound ideal for a wedding in a large venue, cathedral, synagogue, or ballroom. The repertoire of the Quartet is from the Baroque era, with selections from composers such as Vivaldi, Handel and Corelli, through Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, and into the Romantic era, with Strauss waltzes and other lighter works.

Although the ensemble also performs selections from Broadway shows of the 1950s and 1960s, their music is best suited for easy listening and background at a reception as opposed to dancing. Solo trumpet can be added to the ensemble for brilliance during the processional and recessional of a wedding ceremony.
