The Lakeshore String Quartet Overview

We are the Lakeshore String Quartet. We have been playing together as a quartet for six years now. We consist of two violins, a viola, and a cello. Our musical selection is mostly for weddings although we have classical pieces that would suit many other events. Our quartet has received multiple superior ratings from audiences and from Solo-Ensemble competitions. We got a level one rating two years in a row, and we went to state Solo-Ensemble competition and received a level one rating as well. We are currently in our senior year at Grand Haven High School.
We have played multiple weddings, art shows, and even the private screening of the community Loutit Library.
