Types of Ensembles & Soloists
The string quartet is our specialty and one of the most elegant performing groups in the history of classical music. A string quartet includes 2 violins, 1 viola, and 1 cello. The quartet is one of the most popular options because of the amount of music written for this genre (large variety to choose from-full repertoire) and the beautiful and full "classic orchestral" sound it produces. A quartet is highly recommended for any wedding ceremony, larger receptions and parties, large churches and halls, and for certain types of music.
A string trio includes 1 violin and 1 viola (or 2 violins) and 1 cello. A trio is a fantastic option when the quartet is not in your budget and provides a great value between fullness of sound and cost. A large part of our string quartet music can also be played by a string trio, albeit with a slightly less "full and harmonic" sound. We also have specialized trio music. A trio will be perfect for small or medium sized venues.
A string soloist is a specialized part of Accordia, and we can provide whatever instrument your particular event needs. Whether that is a strolling violinist, a cellist performing unaccompanied Bach, or a partner for a pianist during a wedding ceremony, a string soloist can elevate the prestige of an event.
