About Our String Quartet

What is your sound?

Our string quartet is made up of two violins, a viola and a cello. The instruments take the roles of Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass. The combination produces complete, four part harmony. The repertoire written or arranged for string quartet is very large and includes works in just about every style imaginable.

We ❤ Outdoor performances

We are willing to perform outdoors, but provided it is warmer than 60°F. Our instruments are sensitive to the temperature. Our instruments also require full protection from sunlight, rain, and wind.

More musicians welcome!

We play frequently with vocalists, organists, pianists, and trumpeters, among others.

Musical Selections

We will help you choose your music during a complimentary consultation. You can prepare for this meeting by going to our Listen page to play audio and video clips and view some of our music suggestions.

If you have a request for a piece not listed in our repertoire, let us know as soon as possible so we can acquire and arrange the music in a timely fashion. We include one new arrangement in our standard fee.

Contact us for help with any questions or to request a demo CD.

On the day of the event…

We will need four chairs without arms and a sufficient space to set up (approximately 7′ x 7′).

If indoors, access to an electrical outlet for lighting is helpful. We provide our own music stands and lights.
