Altair Trio

Based in Palo Alto CA

We are a dynamic group of musicians who have come together to share our love of all types of music with you! The Altair String Trio is now available, in Northern California, for performance at your special event. We offer classical and popular music for wedding ceremonies and receptions, showers, anniversaries, church services, memorials, holiday and community events, and small private or large corporate parties . The Altair Trio is privately run by three classically trained, leading San Francisco Bay Area professional musicians.

We recommend a string trio for most special occasions. A violin/viola/cello trio offers a full, lush sound at a lower price than the more common string quartet. Solo violin or cello, and duos are also available.

Altair Trio has an extensive repertoire of all available classical string trios, such as those beauties by Schubert, Mozart, Ravel, and Beethoven. We also enjoy performing many popular and wedding favorites, along with Christmas, Jewish, other sacred/spiritual hymns/tunes, classical orchestra rearrangements, Irish fiddling, country, tango, waltz, opera, rags, jazz, movie soundtrack, and even rock and roll! For your special event, we can suggest the music, or we would be happy to work with you on selecting a play list. Special requests can also be researched!

"Thank you again Cynthia and Julian! The residents and families are very pleased with your music. I have received excellent feedback from them. Hopefully we will be needing your services sometime soon."

"We would just like to thank you so very much for playing your beautiful music at our wedding--it made our day even more special. Everyone absolutely loved the Beatles music! =)"
