What’s the difference between a string trio and a string quartet?
*A quartet has more parts and a fuller sound which creates a richer texture. Volume wise there is very little difference. There is an incredible repertoire available for string quartet, most of which can be performed by a trio. For centuries, master composers have leaned toward the string quartet.
*Price for Sextet (Includes 6 musicians: 3 violins, viola, cello and double bass) price will be the same as two string trios.

Outdoor Events :
As our instruments are very precious, shelter from direct sunlight and/or rain is required. A large secure umbrella/tent or shade from trees can be good options. If raining, an alternate location for the event is required. This is very important and unfortunately we will not be able to play if it is raining and there is no proper shelter provided.
Use of a sound system is encouraged for all outside events.
Most hosts have a system available, we recommend you speak with them first if you would like amplification for the ensemble.
We also provide sound equipment retail services! (Mics, Mixers, and Speakers)
Feel free to ask if interested.
