The Mahr String Quartet

The Mahr Quartet is Omaha’s premier string quartet.
We specialize in live performances for your wedding, reception, or any special event.

We are an Omaha, Nebraska based string quartet made of professional musicians and teachers. Since meeting in 1997, we have remained close friends and believe that is evident when we play. You can find us performing together about 50 times per year primarily at weddings + corporate parties, but also can be seen and heard accompanying local church and community choirs as well as the occasional benefit concert or educational appearance.

As individuals, we freelance with the Omaha, Lincoln and Des Moines Symphonies and perform as locals with touring acts such as: Josh Groban, Rod Stewart, Quincy Jones, Mary J. Blige, Michael Bublé, Mannheim Steamroller and many Broadway shows. Our large selection of contemporary repertoire, good business sense and the fact that we remain the best of friends after 20 years set us apart from the rest. We appreciate you taking a look around and hope you like what you hear!


We know you have a choice in your wedding music and we appreciate you taking the time to check out live music in the Omaha area. The Mahr String Quartet will add a unique touch and set the tone on your special day. When you book us, you have one more thing to check off the list and one less thing to stress about!


Your guests are important to you and to us. We’ll set the mood (and even take requests!) while you sit back and enjoy. We can do cocktails, dinner or both!


Our diverse repertoire sets the tone for wedding receptions and holiday/corporate parties.  We’ve even played a surprise party in a backyard tree house.  Whether it be to add a sense of sophistication and class or create a casual and upbeat environment, we are able to add that special something you are hoping to give your guests.

To the wonderful ladies of the Mahr String Quartet. Thank you for sharing your talents and making our wedding ceremony such a memorable event!  Your performance was breathtaking and we will forever remember the happy tears that were flowing when you started playing “Gabriel’s Oboe.”  I would recommend you all in a heartbeat!  Thank you again!

Thank you for performing at our wedding at the Lauritzen Gardens.  You did a beautiful job and served a very special role at our ceremony and cocktail hour.  Thank you so much for your flexibility in working with us.  We will happily recommend you to anyone we know looking for a string quartet in the future.
