{ Rebecca Zapen Strings }

Rebecca Zapen Strings: Florida's choice professional string ensemble performing throughout Florida. We perform regularly at weddings and private functions as well as with symphonies throughout the region.

Our music adds that extra touch of elegance to your special day - especially in settings such as the Don CeSar, Vinoy, Sirata Resort, Ritz-Carlton, Ponte Vedra Lodge and Club, the Ribault Club, and churches and synagogues. We are happy to travel to your destination.

Rebecca Zapen Strings is versatile in that we can arrange a group to best suit your needs, whether you are looking for music before and during a ceremony, cocktails, reception, dinner party, etc. One of our popular configurations is as a String Trio, which consists of two violins and a cello. Our groups range from a solo instrumentalist, which is most appropriate for very small, intimate gatherings, to a string quartet, which works the best at large, outdoor parties. You may customize the ensemble by including flute, guitar, harp, or trumpet. If you are interested in booking us for a wedding, we offer personalized consultations, and we are happy to share our ideas with you if you need suggestions.
