We are proud to have won WeddingWire's Couples Choice Award every year.   Thank you!

Our group is experienced in providing perfectly tailored atmosphere for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, dinners, parties and corporate events. We believe that no two events should ever feel the same, and we make variety our priority!

The Vanderbilt Strings serves the entire Southwest Florida area, which includes Naples, Fort Myers, Sanibel & Captiva Islands, and Marco Island. Locations beyond the greater Naples - Ft. Myers area may be available by special arrangement.




We are all professional musicians performing with the Naples Philharmonic and Southwest Florida Symphony. Through this work we're constantly getting lessons in style from the great people that we get to play with like Idina Menzel, Andrea Bocelli, Harry Connick Jr., and Trans-Siberian Orchestra. All this experience means that we know how to play together, stay together, and roll from one style of music to the next and we love doing it!

Janie Spangler, violinist, founded the Vanderbilt Strings, and handles the booking and organizing of events.
