We are proud to have won WeddingWire's Bride's Choice Award for 2012-2014.   Thank you!

The members of the Vanderbilt Strings are experienced in providing engaging live music 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.


The members of the Vanderbilt Strings are all professional musicians performing with the Naples Philharmonic, Southwest Florida Symphony, and Opera Naples. As orchestral musicians we perform over 120 concerts each season to critical acclaim and enthusiastic audiences. In these orchestras we play everything from Brahms to Broadway, and Led Zeppelin too. The best part is that we bring these same talents and ranges of styles to your event!

Our musicians love what they do and are in demand for many music festivals and chamber groups across the country. We have performed with such great talents as Kathleen Battle, New York City Opera, Harry Connick Jr., Andrea Bocelli, Quincy Jones, ABBA, Trans-Siberian Railroad, and Marvin Hamlisch.

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






Classical. Jazz. Latin. Rock and Pop.

All delivered straight up or with a fresh twist.

Our library with hundreds of music selections is open to you! With our resources and your input we can create just the right ambience to complete your vision for the evening.


The choice is yours!

We are available as:

• Quintet (2 violins, viola, cello, plus double bass)
• String Quartet (2 violins, viola, cello)
• String Trio (violin, viola, cello)
• Duo (violin/viola or violin/cello)

Many of our clients enjoy the fullness of a complete string quartet, while others enjoy the intimacy of a smaller number of instruments -- we are happy to arrange for as many or as few players as you would like!
