They have an extensive performance experience in world famous venues including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and productions on Broadway.

Some of the ensemble choices we can provide are as follows:

Solo: Violin/ Cello. The most intimate choice- suitable for marriage proposals, anniversary surprise, beach wedding ceremonies, eco-friendly/green weddings.

Duo: 2 Violins, Violin & Viola, Violin & Cello or String instrument (Violin, Viola, Cello) & Piano/Keyboard- appropriate for destination and intimate weddings, cocktail hours, private parties and salons with limited space, where background music is needed.

String Quartet: Two violins, viola, and cello offer the widest variety of musical styles. This ensemble has an extensive and versatile repertoire complimented by an effective full sound.

String Trio: Two violins and cello or violin, viola and cello. Very popular arrangement, especially for more intimate weddings and events. Not quite as loud as the quartet, yet with an extensive repertoire, suitable for smaller budgets and spaces.

String Quintet: a string quartet with the addition of a double bass. The result is an increase in the sound volume and richness, creating the effect of a small orchestra. This choice is excellent for big weddings and large outdoor or indoor events.
