Frequently Asked Questions

Do you perform outdoors?


Yes, most of our events are outdoors, however there are restricitons related to the weather conditions. String instruments are very expensive and often very old. Please click here for our weather rider.

Do you perform in the mountains?


Yes! We love to play in the beautiful Colorado Rockies. We also travel throughout the USA. Since we are based in the Denver area we frequently perform in Vail, Aspen, Colorado Springs, Crested Butte, Estes Park, Breckenridge, etc. Some locations will require overnight accomodations.

Which group should I hire, string quartet, trio, duo, or another ensemle?


Quartet String Quartet is our most popular group. Our arrangements for pop and rock music are all arranged for string quartet. Most classical composers also preferred the string quartet for chambrer music. Trio The string trio works well if you want only classical music and you need a smaller volume of sound. Duo The string duo works well for small gatherings where a more intimate ambience is desired. Soloists A soloist can enhance any event. We have played for "surprise" proposals, dinners, receptions, etc. Other Instruments
The are many other combinations of instruments but keep in mind that music is usually written for specific groupings and instrument families. Can we have a saxophone in our string quartet? Yes, but the blend would be bad and the player would not be one of our quartet regulars so they may not be very comfortable playing violin music.
While we specialize in strings, we also book brass quintets for weddings and commencements. In addition, we book jazz bands and full orchestras and can refer you to a DJ. Since we have been playing professionally in Colorado for many years, we know the musical community very well and can refer musicians as needed.

Do you always use the same players


We have a team of about 12 players that we regularly use. Our team of musicians represents the finest musicians in Colorado. This means that on occasion our musicians are getting called to play with the Colorado Symphony, Colorado Ballet, touring Broadway shows, etc. Our musicians are in high demand. It is our opinion that this gives our customers the best quality sound. If a quartet always uses the same musicians (this is not the case with a touring concert string quartet) it means that those players don't get called for the top gigs in town and are not full time professional musicians. Our core team have all played hundreds of events with us and they always sound great and bring thier professional savvy to our customers.
For more information contact us.




Do you use sound equipment?


Most of our events, such as wedding ceremonies, cocktail receptions, rehearsal dinners, etc. do not require sound equipment. When we are playing for larger events we usually use the sound gear and techicians that are at the event. For some events we have sound equipment and technicains available for hire.
