Artistic Director Karen Barg with Principal Cellist Jonathan Bauch

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

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


Luminous Quartet played at the ceremony and cocktail hour for our wedding. Karen is professional, friendly, and easy to work with. She connected with our wedding officiant to ensure the ceremony went on without a hitch. My husband and I had to fight off tears when we heard them begin to play – it was a truly magical moment. I wish we hired them for the dinner as well.
— Kellie and Kyle
