Welcome to the website of the Imperial Valley String Quartet.  The IVSQ adds a touch of “classical” to weddings and receptions. 

Based in El Centro, California, the IVSQ is a traditional string quartet consisting of two violins, a viola, and a cello, which performs both classical and popular music. 

Founded in 1974 by Imperial Valley Symphony Music Director Joel Jacklich, the IVSQ draws its players from present and past members of the Imperial Valley Symphony. 

Performances are centered in the Imperial Valley of California, with occasional forays to the San Diego area to the west; to Yuma, Arizona, to the east; or to Mexicali, B.C., Mexico, to the south.
