Bella Noche (Formerly Cahokia Strings)

Greater St. Louis/St. Charles & Illinois Areas, 

Providing affordable elegance for your wedding, event, or private party. 18 years experience serving the St. Louis, St. Charles, and Metro East Areas

Bella Noche is formerly The Cahokia String Quartet. We’ve experienced some awesome growth spurts this past year and have had the opportunity to add more musicians to our group. Once we were restricted to quartet format, but we are now able to offer duet, trio, quartet and more.

Bella Noche is comprised of music teachers throughout the St. Louis and Metro East areas. Our musicians teach for school districts and privately.

Several of our musicians enjoy arranging music also. Perhaps you have a favorite song that you and your loved one share and wish to have it played at your wedding or reception. It would be our pleasure to create a string arrangement for you.

We have a wide array of music genres ranging from the renaissance era to modern-day pop/rock ready to play for your wedding and reception.

David Becherer - Pianist
St. Louis/St. Charles Area


I have been a serious student of the piano for more than 30 years. After building a strong foundation through many years of classical piano study, I obtained my BM in Jazz Studies from Webster University, studying with the legendary jazz pianist, Carolbeth True. I have 20years of experience as a professional musician. I've performed for thousands, and regularly play with the top jazz musicians in the area.

As a professional wedding pianist I have performed hundreds of ceremonies and cocktail hours. I'm proud to have been awarded Wedding Wire's "Bride's Choice" and Couples Choice Awards and The Knot's "Best of" Awards several times. I work with a diverse array of classical and jazz musicians, enabling me to put together classical ensembles for ceremonies and jazz trios and quartets for receptions, cocktails and events. For example, a trumpet/vocal/piano for the ceremony followed by a jazz trio consisting of piano/upright bass/drums for the reception. Another possibility - Piano and Cello or Piano and Flute for ceremony followed by the Songbird Duo for the cocktails or reception. I am consistently praised by clients for reasonable prices, prompt communications, stress free delivery of services, and flexibility in customizing music selections to their tastes.
