The Luminous String Quartet is a unique, eclectic string quartet in Winnipeg

When you dream about your wedding day, you dream about the music. That moment when the doors open and you hear the first few notes of your favourite piece . . . that’s a moment you will never forget. The Luminous String Quartet captured that moment perfectly.
— Lindsay and Rory Egan, September 2012

The Luminous String Quartet offers a highly diverse repertoire spanning the classical music eras as well as custom arrangements of popular music


I’ve benefited from Karen’s talents in numerous settings. Not only did she provide some lovely violin on an Indicator Indicator track, but she organized and led the string quartet at my wedding. She’s a pleasure to work with – relaxed, professional, friendly, and above all a beautiful player.
— Sandy Taronno, Lead Vocalist in Indicator Indicator and Quinzy
