Duet: (usually 2 violins)

A duet is an elegant addition to any occasion.  We can provide you with any combination of string instruments, but the most requested duet is two violins.  Two violin parts may be pulled from most of our arrangements and will work well as a duet.   

In addition there is a large repertoire of standard duets written specifically for two violins.

SoloistsOur musicians all perform as soloists.  We recommend a violin as your choice for a solo string instrument as there is much more music to choose from.  Pianists and Organists are also a nice choice and have an incredible repertoire available.
