The Bel Canto String Quartet of Winnipeg




most requested





I would like to encourage anyone and everyone who is searching for excellence in stringed instrument performance or accompaniment to hire the best in the business:   the Bel Canto String Quartet of Winnipeg.   I am a pop musician and have had the honour of working with this team on many different occasions.

In a world where different genres and styles seem to be less and less exclusive of each other, Karen Warner and the Bel Canto String Quartet have been an example to me in building bridges between the classical and pop/rock music communities.   Not only that, but they do their job with excellence and perfection, in whatever musical genre they find themselves.

I would not hesitate to hire the Bel Canto String Quartet again for any live or studio recording performance, and have also not forgotten the gorgeous string arrangement that Karen Warner wrote for my song “Bless Your Holy Name”.

For arrangements and performances, quartets, solos, and more, you’ve come to the right place!

We first saw the Bel Canto String Quartet when they performed at our friend's wedding.   After that performance, we knew then that we wanted to have this same quartet play at our wedding, and we are so glad we did!   The music they played created a beautiful atmosphere for our wedding ceremony.   The musicians are very accomplished and professional in their work.   They were very accommodating in our choice of music as well as their own selections.   Everyone including our guests was very impressed with the musical performance at our wedding. The Bel Canto String Quartet made our wedding day even more memorable and we highly recommend them for your special event!

I knew that I wanted a string quartet to play at my ceremony and during dinner of my reception. After looking around, Karen was so accommodating to all my needs and music requests, that there was absolutely no competition.  I had to choose the Bel Canto String Quartet.  If there is one thing that my guests remembered about my wedding, it wasn't the food, it wasn't the Millennium Center -   it was the string quartet.  I would highly recommend this talented bunch. They were absolutely wonderful!!

The Bel Canto String Quartet was a great addition to both our wedding ceremony and reception. They sounded wonderful, had an excellent repertoire and were also very open to playing some our favorite pieces of music. Our big day was the better for having them. They were a “classical act."

The Bel Canto String Quartet’s video showed their extensive repertoire, and made the selection of music very efficient. Their professionalism was evident, from good communication, to a contract that clearly outlined conditions and rates. They were flexible with their time, and were willing to extend the length of playing time as necessary for our son’s wedding. Most of all, they provided beautiful music for the guests to enjoy, setting the stage for an event to remember!
